Top 50 Title:
Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.
The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.
The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.
Extensive single player: Featuring next generation gameplay and a wildly-engrossing story.
Complete two-person co-op: Multiplayer game featuring its own dedicated story, characters, and gameplay.
Advanced physics: Allows for the creation of a whole new range of interesting challenges, producing a much larger but not harder game.
Massive sequel: The original Portal was named 2007's Game of the Year by over 30 publications worldwide.
Editing Tools: Portal 2 editing tools will be included.
An increase in puzzles, excellent writing, and humorValoo321 | Aug. 18, 2015 | See all Valoo321's reviews »
If you've had the chance to play Portal and haven't played Portal 2, and if I may quote Hollywood Superstar Shia LeBouf, JUST DO IT! The humour and puzzles in this game are unparalleled. The way the game ramps up the difficult is just perfect, introducing one puzzle in one room and then another in the next, and then combining them in the third. You also get special goo in this game (not that kind of goo. Yeah, that other kind) that gives you the ability to jump, slide, and create portals in special areas. This expands on Portal the first in terms of story and humour as well, as you get introduced into varied characters rather than just GlaDOS. The co-op game is great fun as well, and the implementation of gestures and markers for online co-op makes it so much better, as timing and placement is definitely a big thing. Overall, I think a perfect game. I can't think of anything that could be changed, and I said that about the first Portal but Portal 2 only adds on what Portal had laid down.
My Favourite Game To Datesebastienful | Aug. 6, 2015 | See all sebastienful's reviews »
I bought the Portal Bundle on Steam, so I could replay Portal 2 on my laptop (I had already played through on PS3) and I enjoyed it so much, even on my second playthrough. From Wheatley's buffoonery, to uncovering the history of Aperture Science (along with Cave Johnson's hilarious recordings) and the amazing final battle (and ending song). I've yet to play through the entire co-op mode (unfortunately due to my less enthusiastic friends) but the parts I have played, I thoroughly enjoyed. Shame about no controller support on Mac (unless the Select button is the new Jump)
Amazing Follow-up to the First GameSparkWave | Aug. 5, 2015 | See all SparkWave's reviews »
Portal 2 is a jaw dropping installment to the Portal series. With many added features such as reflecting cubes and gels, you are undoubtedly going to have a good, yet challenging time. The story line fits perfectly with the first game and the puzzles are even harder. If you're bored, then there is even an option for multiplayer to play with friends or random people, or if you don't want to do that, then you can play community made maps! Test your brain with some challenging puzzles!
Maybe the best puzzle game everMurderbot735 | July 27, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
It's at least the best puzzle game that I have ever played. You wake up and Aperture Laboratories seems to have gone through some really tough shit. Then you have to deal with two different psychotic robots, and complete multiple awesome puzzles with one of the best guns of all time. GLaDOS and Weathley are amazingly written and voice-acted, and the humor is great. The main character is almost completely anonymous, and the only things you get to know is some of the things GLaDOS says to taunt her. You can also see yourself through the portals. The graphics are also really good and it runs on pretty much every machine. If you for some strange reason haven't played this yet, then do it. Now. Even if you don't like puzzle games normally. I don't but loved this.

I didn't know how they could make Portal any better than the first one, but they managed to do it. The game has an amazing story, with great characters. The dialogue in this game is hilarious and has some of my favorite lines in any video game thanks to Cave Johnson. They also added more than just portals to use to navigate the puzzles like the different kinds of gels that allow for added speed or height of bouncing. There is even a coop specific story line with coop specific test chambers, which was a great addition to the game. I would highly recommend this game to everyone.
