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.
Witty and fantastic Source Puzzle actionZaggeta | May 13, 2015 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
Valve sure knows how to produce good games (just not the one game we want, and no, it is not confirmed). Portal was a shot from the blue and immediately a smash hit, even convincing puzzle haters like myself to love it. Portal 2 expands on the surprise hit with even more portal based action - expanding on the mechanics and adding a witty storyline reminiscent of some of the best British dialogues. Some complain that the game feels forced but I would have to disagree. Portal 2 is an upgraded sequel with a more complex plot. Maybe it isn't the classic Portal, but it is still great.

Portal 2 is a ridiculously entertaining expansion of concept on the cult hit Portal. The original game showed up on the market as a surprisingly detailed and complex experience for it's 4 or so hours. Valve has doubled (maybe tripled?) down all of that for Portal 2. This equals an even funnier, more difficult, and more entertaining experience. Portal 2 sort of picks up where the first game left off, as you will be playing as the same protagonist. New characters, like the AI Wheatley, are immensely entertaining while GLaDOS herself returns as well. Humor is sharp, and the new story elements are great additions. Music is once again seamlessly integrated, and this produces several Valve trademark moments. The gameplay this time around is more mind bending, with a significant increase in new abilities. The exploration of the history of Aperture Science and it's connections to the Half Life universe, Black Mesa, and the world around the facility are interesting. Like the first game, I had several great moments trying to piece together the puzzle in front of me, while the new gels and their effects definitely will leave you smiling a few times. What else can you really say here? Portal 2 takes the original game, adds 3x the content, amps up the story, effects, gameplay, music, everything and manages to equal and many times outdo the original. An absolute must play and top 25 all time game.

The whole portal series is what puzzle games desire to be like. Fun, captivating and enjoyable. There isn't much to say about portal other than that you should get it, play it, and rave about it to all of your friends. This game is great nothing more nothing less.
The best co-op puzzle game ever made!Ho0pz4sho | May 6, 2015 | See all Ho0pz4sho's reviews »
If you've played Portal 1 and enjoyed it, let me tell you, you'll love Portal 2. Being already used to the first Portal gameplay, when I got my hands on this game I was as excited as a newborn baby when he first sees his mother. Besides the amazing single-player story, voice acting and puzzle environment, Portal 2 brings out co-op multiplayer. Now if that's not everything you'd like from a 3D puzzler I don't know what is. Hundreds of hours of gameplay and replayability guaranteed with this purchase!
A plot stretched Portal 1.smilzoboboz | March 9, 2015 | See all smilzoboboz's reviews »
First let me say that I liked the first Portal, a lot, and so everything that changed from how it was in there is just a regression IMHO. Portal 2 plot is weaker than Portal one, actually far weaker, they stretched the plot to fill in new elements for a richer gameplay (which is good) but it's definitely not as enjoyable as the first Portal because here you feel like what you're doing is totally meaningless. So, to sum things up, Portal 2 is Portal 1 with a richer gameplay, a lot of more hours of gameplay but a weaker plot that kills the enjoyment. Still a good game but not the 10/10 of Portal 1.
