But is it possible to successfully stretch a bargain-priced, 3-hour experience into a full retail game?

Presentation
“Portal 2’s” graphics are exactly what one would expect from a current-generation, polygonal FPS. The textures look good and there are no jaggies – there’s really not a whole lot to say about the graphic...
