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.

Portal 2 is one of those games that hook you from the first moment. Like it is predecessor, the game is based on puzzles through the use of portals, rays, cubes, turrets, buttons and walls, but now added bridges, liquids, flow conveyors, glass cubes, among other things. The campaign now has a more interactive story and will be a lot longer than Portal 1. There will be more characters, more types of scenarios and situations that will leave us short time to act. Also Valve added cooperative mode, which will increase the difficulty we have to complete the chambers with many more possible routes. Best of all is that the community can create its own camera and share them with others people, which makes this game practically endless. If you like Portal 1, you will love Portal 2. Is the greatest demonstration of the potential that Valve developers have.

Now with multiplayer co-op mode, Portal 2 takes the puzzles you're (kind of) used to to a whole new level. With many more puzzles to solve, you'll find yourself enjoying that this game makes you think in a very entertaining way. Videogames don't just ruin your mind. Games like this one help you improve it! They make you think and take decisions. One of the best games I've played. Don't think twice and try it out!

Portal 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed game Portal by Valve. Like it's predecessor, Portal 2 is a puzzle first person game. It takes place a couple of years after the events of Portal. You wake up in a rather destroyed version of Aperture. As you progress through the game, you'll uncover Aperture's story and GLaDoS's past. It's still a great puzzle game. Only now, there are additional challenges Plus, there's a coop mode where you play as P-body or Atlas. Team work is the key to beating the game in coop. There's also a new feature called "Perpetual Testing Initiative" Where you can create maps to play on. With that, Portal 2 now has the possibility of infinite puzzles . From simple puzzles to mind blowing ones. Truly, this game is a masterpiece. I'd recommend it to be played.

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 YetMattMin3 | 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.
