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.
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.

Portal 2 is the direct sequel to the award winning game Portal. It's basically the same thing. You are Chell, you are trapped inside the Aperture Science facility and must solve puzzles in order to find your way of this place. Your main tool is the Portal Gun, a device that can create (surprise) portals. The whole package is served with a funny story (Once again thanks to GlaDOS and the other machines from the facility) and great atmosphere. But Portal 2 has some new things to offer. First, the gameplay has got a whole new feature : the gel. The gel is a Aperture Science's product that gives several effects to the things (and people) it touches. You can bounce. You can go faster etc... Two : The game has an excellent coop campaign where the player must control Atlas and P-body, two unfortunate robots sent by GlaDOS in the test chambers of the facility. Last and not least, the game has a truly well done map editor. Each player can create his own test chambers and share them with friends and strangers alike. Also, you can play the test chambers created by other players. Portal 2 is excellent, has great replay value and gives you access to the excellent mod campagin Portal Stories : MEL. What are you waiting for??
The follow up to one of my favorite games.chcoman123 | July 20, 2015 | See all chcoman123's reviews »
If you loved the first game, you will love this game. I could end my review just there, but there's more to this game than jut that. The story is still wonderful and well-written. It isn't as good or as subtle as the first game, but it's still really good. Plus the game is much longer than the first game. However the game could be harder. The single player campaign is fairly easy, and the in-between sections are long and simple. Not bad, just easy. However the multiplayer is fantastic. Having two sets of portals makes for more complicated puzzles, along with trying to get two people to get to the end makes things ever more difficult all the real puzzles are here. I just wish that the multiplayer campaign had a better story. Together, you have an excellent game, maybe not as good as the first, but still definitely good. If you want more of the first game, you'll love this game too.
Perfect idea with little to complain.kauppinensb | July 17, 2015 | See all kauppinensb's reviews »
Portal 2 is sequel for Valve's original Portal. Game mechanics are equal but there is more materials to interact with portals and levels are more complicated and cover more area. There is not still much new. You are able to make two portals. If you go through the first one, you'll come out from another. Every material also does same with portals. Levels are puzzles with only one way to complete. I liked gameplay much. There is very exciting storyline with unbelievable environments and nearly impossible-looking puzzles to solve. There is many breathtaking moments and much joy when you understand level's mechanics. One irritating thing were console-looking loading times between any levels. Graphics and physics modeling are awesome. I found some puzzles to irritative because I wasn't able to solve em with another easier way I found. There is usually only one developers' made route to finish. Game is vast and complicated. If you like puzzles, this is must buy. Multiplayer also have different story with co-op. There is much content. There is still some little things that are breaking illusion.
