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.
I really enjoyed playing this game and it is a blast!! My son and I had a great time figuring out the puzzles together. It takes the first Portal, another awesome game, and expands on it in all the right ways. All new puzzles for the rat aka.(you) to solve to advance through the testing facility. Some new Gel substances like repulsion gel, and acceleration gel and a few others really add to the fun of solving the tricky puzzles. Throw in some story related twists, that I wont spoil, and enjoy. The concept and story of the portal games is just great. It's very original and while based on a FPS control scheme you never actually shoot anyone!! After several sad sequels lately, that were disappointments due to the pathetic catering to console gaming, I was pleasantly surprised to find a game that didn't seem hindered by the bad port syndrome of the others... No I'm not a console hater and have several of them, but why a game can't be properly cross ported without neutering it for the PC is just sad. Anyways, if you liked the first Portal, enjoy puzzles or mind teasers, and like being picked on by a snarky AI that is both funny and a bit psychotic, get Portal 2...
Would definitely recommend this game. You have to remember though, it's a thinking game. You might be well acclimated FPS games, but it's always a welcome change. It's grown over the years with add-ons and mods making it even better. I love this game alot it's a very fun puzzle game and not alot of games are like this these days. Definitely get this game.
You know, I only write serious reviews for games I feel that are precious to me, Portal 2, obviously is one of those games. I started this game knowing nothing about the main story from Portal 1, but just playing the game normally perfectly explained it all, everything about this game; exemplary. From the soundtrack, to the puzzles, hell, even the robot characters have colorful personalities. And finishing the game brought a tear to my eye, while saying "Man, what an adventure that was." Definitely one of the most unforgettable games of all time, so do I recommend this? HELL YES.
Do you like puzzles, especially environmental ones? Do you like great narratives and jokes? Do you like physics and portals? Do you like potatoes? Of course you do. If you don't, you will fall in love with them after playing Portal 2. This is genuinely one of the best games I have ever played, if not the best. It is both well written and well designed, and manages to be challenging without getting frustrating. Some puzzles will leave you wondering about the solution for a bit longer than you would like, but this is fine. You will get it eventually, and the satisfaction coming from that is immense. Why are you still here? Go play Portal 2 now!
This is the funniest, prettyest, best written game anyone ever published! Is has a great story, tons of Easter eggs, many-many levels, and huge community support both for single and coop levels. The campaigns are a little short, around 10 hours combined, but as i mentioned, there are literally thousands of user created maps, that are actually worth playing,. The game itself is well known, but if by chance someone never heard of it, this game is about portals(shocking i know) that you use to solve puzzles.It starts of easily, but they get really hard fast. The coop thing is even harder. Almost as hard as getting someone who playes a the same time as you, so it's a good idea, to buy two of it:)
