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.
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.

You've heard of Portal. If you haven't, you're lying to yourself. One of the greatest games of all time, Portal 2 improves on the original in every way. Portal 2 introduces new puzzle mechanics, new "friends" (i.e. Wheatley, GLaDOS, Cave Johnson), a longer campaign, and even a co-op mode. Even though it can be beaten in 6 hours if you want, it offers replayability, and hosts mods and new chambers. Portal 2 is, simply put, a more refined, more elegant, more fun version of Portal. If you haven't played it yet, play it. P.S. - the cake is a lie.
Mind blowing First Person Puzzle Shooterreginleifx | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »
In case you have not heard of Portal yet, let me sum it up for you: It's a First Person Shooter in which you solve puzzles by using a gun that shoots portals. Sounds easy, right? Wrong. The game's plot is alright. It is not perfect, but it still is quite interesting (especially if you have played the first one and always wondered what GladOS' origins were). Graphics are amazing. I mean, they are not out of this world, but they could have been worse. Soundtrack is good. Not going to complain, but it is fitting. Where this game shines, is its gameplay. It is a great improvement from the first one (which was also great). The main focus of the game is to solve physics puzzles, using portals that you create with your gun, however, you will find new elements the more you progress, and by the end of chapter 8, the game gets actually pretty difficult if you have not gotten a hang of it. Do I recommend getting it? Yes, even at full price. In case you have not played neither this or the previous entry in the franchise, get both as soon as possible.

Brilliant sequel to the game that taught us that the cake is a lie. With much more humor and double the number of homicidal robots. Not to mention the new coop mode. Portal 2 is bigger and better than the original, with more answers and a deeper story.

This is a great game that actually makes you think!! I highly recommend this game over the first as there is a ton of replay value! The only downside of the game is that some of the levels can get repetitive.
