"Peer Review" is now available (360)

#1 Edited by Aishan (1022 posts) -

Peer Review is now up on the XBL Marketplace (under Game Addons, Portal 2, not spotlighted yet) 1.37 GB download. Not available on Steam yet, it seems. No idea about PSN either.

Description text says there's both singleplayer and multiplayer challenges.

EDIT: The singleplayer "content" just appears to be time-trial and fewest-portal challenges (no steps challenges this time) for the story levels. Nothing unique.

Similar for the multiplayer, new leaderboards for the original courses, but there's also another series of levels called "Art Therapy".

Took about 2 hours to get through it with a random dude I met on XBL. As always, with Portal, the reason some of the puzzles took so long is because of overthinking the situation. It's a total "Of course!" once you see the proper solution. Pretty decent overall, and you can't argue the price.

I couldn't find it in the marketplace, but found it by popping the disc in and hitting the download free DLC button.

Downloaded it, and I don't even have the game yet. Woo!

That why you play locally with a friend or a sibling, its much easier when you can see the other guys screen

@kashif1: You can see your partner's screen online too (Y button).

@Aishan: Don't worry, I'll force you to play co-op with me once I get the game.

@Cincaid: But I already know all the solutions!

@Aishan: Even better! You know how dumb I am.

Hm, I actually don't think I can be bothered doing the whole challenge mode thing :(

@BeachThunder: I'm with you. The new co-op levels are fun to play, but I couldn't really care less about leaderboard rankings for the singleplayer stuff.

@Aishan: It's up on Steam too! Or at least, Portal 2 just had a 770mb update.

how do you unlock the new multiplayer challenges?

Is it still free? Or has Microsoft not yet fired the guy who didn't like free content for 360 games?

how do you access the new content?

@Springfart: @Ghostmut:

It's immediately in front of where you spawn in the multiplayer hub. Just portal over, step on both the buttons and you'll be sent over to the new area.
