Description

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.


Key Features:

  • 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.

  • Original music.

  • 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.

And so it begins again.

What you were expecting from the first game can be send to the bin. This game has truly some new mechanics that will make your brains go "Argh!" But it's a very funny game, with some memorable characters such as Cave Johnson. "I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face" -Cave Johnson, Aperture Science. Also, if you want to play even further, there is community maps, so you wouldn't be bored after completing the game. I would recommend co-op, if only I didn't have limited bandwidth. Expect a lot of puzzles from this game. The graphics are great, but it isn't perfect. The voice acting and the sounds were great though. Overall, great game. I would give it 90/100

Valve's Greatest Game Yet

MattMin3 | July 15, 2014 | See all MattMin3's reviews »

Portal 2 isn't a game, it's an experience. This is a game that not only defines what a puzzle game is and should be in the near future, it defines what a game should be, period.

Valve has a knack of coming up with the most innovative games in history but Portal 2, dare I say it, is their best. The one thing that you notice first is the excellent and point on voice acting. Ellen McClain as the monstrous Glados to J.K. Simmons as the hilarious Cave Johnson, this game is on par with the acting greats in video games. The mechanics are fluid and excellent, the puzzles are innovative and stunning in their own right and the plot is through and movie-like. The dialogue could be probably be nominated for an Academy Award for it's amazing wit and humor coupled with dark and sometimes philosophical lines. The co-op is one of the best I've ever seen, making it so that the two players working, actually have to work with one another to reach the goal.

Not once, has a puzzle game ever been this excellent in all aspects. Critics hail it as the best game of the year and not one person can disagree genuinely. Why? Because Portal 2 is not only the year's best game, but could be considered as one of the greatest games of all time. It may seem like this game is flawless, and at times it isn't. The loading screen takes some time and the graphics sometimes pop in and out. But, the reason I'm rating it a 100, is because Portal 2 is, like I said, not a game. It's an experience worth playing.

A must play game!

TPCGorillaMunch | July 8, 2014 | See all TPCGorillaMunch's reviews »

If you have played the original Portal and enjoyed it, you will love Portal 2. I would recommend everyone to play Portal 2 even if you never played the original as it is close to a perfect game in my opinion.

The game is a first person puzzle game with a great atmosphere and story. There are plenty of humorous moments and the characters are brilliant. There is also a coop campaign so if you have a friend there is even more to enjoy. The game isn't huge but it definitely long enough to keep you interested and satisfied. Also steam workshop support will keep you playing for as long as you want to.

The Legend Returns

bwrussell | June 23, 2014 | See all bwrussell's reviews »

Oddly enough it's hard to compare Portal and Portal 2 directly. The first was born from a prototype made by some students, while the second is a full fledged AAA release. Portal 2 is just the next step, if you're contemplating playing it then you should have already played Portal. This isn't an either/or situation.

Portal 2 has it all, clever game play, terrific dark humor, an engaging atmosphere (Act II really excels in this aspect), a strong single player story, fun co-op multiplayer, and Steam Workshop support for almost endless content. This is a game that's hard to review in much detail as you quickly run out of synonyms for "good". This really is a masterpiece, building on everything Portal did right without diluting the experience with forced innovations yet feeling fresh and new.

This is one of those few games that I can easily recommend at full price. If you haven't played the original then look for a bundle that contains it and invest the 2-3 hours in it before jumping into this.

One of the best games of all time

mugaro | June 15, 2014 | See all mugaro's reviews »

The single player campaign is a full retail, 12 chapter endeavor that greatly expands on the original. You get 2 more characters that are both hilarious, you get all kinds of new elements introduced like gels, outdoor levels & vacuum tunnels. You get a full, 3 act story told that takes a bit of Greek mythology, adds in a ton of humor, and has top notch voice acting.

You get a great coop experience that is 100% entirely separate from the main game, giving you levels that literally require 2 people to complete.

You get a map builder so you can play the best maps the community has to offer that include new voice acting from fan favorite, Cave Johnson.

This game has it all, this is another can't miss experience.
