A brilliant blend of puzzle and action

Portal 2 is another hit by Valve, creators of Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead. Valve takes the great gameplay from the first Portal and expands on it, adding many more levels, new features like Repulsion Gel (blue goo that coats walls or floors it splashes onto, making them bouncy!), Aerial Faith Plates (catapults to flick yourself or objects across the map without portals) and more! The story is much deeper than the original, in Portal 2 you dive into the history of Aperture Science and its strange experiments and discover the history of the facility. The dialog is excellent, with GLaDOS and Wheatley being among the most hilariously well-written characters in gaming history. If the magnificent story mode wasn't enough, a Co-Op mode is introduced, wherein players control robots named Atlas and P-Body, and work together to help each other through specially designed chambers! Portal 2 is brilliant on all platforms, but PS3 includes a nice bonus, which is a free copy for PC at no extra cost! You can't go wrong with that!
