About This Game

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.

Product 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.

Play 15.1 hours in 2 days, completed single player then completed the coop campaign and have no idea why... It\'s just so addictive.

Will probably not play it again now but it was fun with my friend.

Be prepared to be confused.

One of the best puzzle games out there; the story is intelligent, the voice acting is the best in the industry, and the puzzles themselves are both intensely challenging and exciting.

REVIEW:
Portal 2 is a stunning puzzle/first-person/story-based/cake-eating sim. So........ heres the low down,
Portal 2 is a sequal to Valves suc·cess·ful (Heh) Portal, Portal 2 greatly expandes on what Portal did, it added a richer storyline, more characters, and new locations, it also added gels to use with your portal gun, and Co-Op mode. In this review we will go over the gameplay, storyline, pros, and lastly cons, lets get started!

1. GAMEPLAY
The gameplay of Portal 2 is extremely fun, you man the character "Chell" in different puzzle situations, all of the gameplay is first person. you have to go through different "Testing floors" avoiding lasers, turrets, laser turrets, deadly falls and deadly falling objects. In the game you use a tool called the portal gun, if you are familiar with Portal you should already know this, what it does is well obviously, it creates portals! The gun creates two different portals in two different locations, this is how you will solve the puzzles. The gameplay starts out easy, but soon progressing you will find yourself wanting to look up Youtube tutorials, I encourage you to not go to Youtube, the feeling you get when you figure out a puzzle makes up for how long it took, it makes you feel like a genius! The worst part of the gameplay for me is the fact that sometimes it feels like you are just doing a puzzle because you want to get to the storyline as soon as possible. Ultimately I think the gameplay for Portal 2 is probably 8/10.

2. STORYLINE
The storyline for Portal 2 has to be good, without a good storyline the player has no motivation to play the game, Portal2's storyline is good, its not so great, but it is good enough. The storyline is interesting but at some points it dips into things like shallow and predictable. The storyline has a very neat twist in the end that I will leave it to you to figure out. The storyline doesn't go much into the unknown past of Chell her childhood mostly remains a mystery, it focuses more on getting her out of the facililty and stopping the evil GLADYS (Her name is something like that). I think that the storyline is worth it but it could have used some work. 7/10.

3. Pros
-Great brain racking fun
-Cake!
-Free cake!
-interesting characters
-Puzzles have more than one way to solve them.
-strange drawings on the wall from ratman
-Great atmosphere! A little creepy and mysterious
-CO-OP
-Great soundtrack
And more!

4. CONS
This is an interesting subject since so many people are always giving it great reviews, I will give you the "Nitty-Gritty"
-Lack of player choice (Can not choose where to go, not open world, can't impact the storyline)
-Can get boring after a while
-Puzzles get repetitive
-Not very much variety


ULTIMATELY I would give this game a 8/10 and I highly suggest you getting this game if you like puzzlers.

There are two Portal games.
There are 6 letters in "Portal"
6 divided by 2 = 3.
Half life 3 confirmed. BUT WAIT.
There are three sides on a triangle.
3 divided by 3 is one.
There is one eye in the illuminati triangle
Half life 3 is Illuminati confirmed.

11/10 would play Illuminati simulator 3.

I was thinking, thinking and thinking. Which one was better? Portal / Portal 2?
First, Portal 2 is awesome as much as the original Portal.
Second, I found some big diffrences between the two:
Portal - More story based game less funny story than Portal 2, BIG suprise element, very original plot and script.
Portal 2 - Funnier than Portal, more exciting and fun gameplay and physics.
now as you understand probably, both are awesome and are REALLLY worth the money. Even more than some triple A games that cost ALOT more.

Portal 2, a creative puzzle game with characters that have personality. When you get in and start playing, you will have fun. If you haven't played Portal, play that one before Portal 2. All in all, get the game(s).

Great sequel to the inarguably best puzzle game ever. Portal 2 expands the story of its predecessor and gives a lot, new elements to add to the game challenge. It also has better graphics and longer gameplay.

One thing that I love in this game that didn't exist in Portal(1) is the Co-op mode. Nothing beats the fun of you and your friend strategizing their way through the chambers.

Summary, I think this game is a must have for almost everyone. If you have Portal(1), you must buy it. If you haven't both, I recommend you to buy the portal bundle. It is a pity living your life skipping this masterpiece.

10/10

Valve have never seemed to disapoint me when it comes to a campaign. Left 4 Dead, Half-Life, Portal, and now Portal 2. With Glados returning for revenge the story gets more and more intense. Running away from an vicious programme with menacing plans to crush you, Only being able to avoid her by supassing invigorating puzzles each getting harder than the next. To beat this game you need a quick brain and good at solving difficult tasks. Some tasks requiring smart movements, others precise timing and even a good accuarcy. If you've played other FPS games in the past you should be good. Even though it does'nt require inhuman ractions sometimes you can be on a tight time limit.

Portal 2 has changed since its first game, with Valve listening to community requests and even adding in small easter eggs and funny secrets to hopfully blow up the internet.

This game is for those who like using their brain and take time in puzzle solving.

Although i do wish the game was longer and even made a 3rd in the series. Please Valve, give us what we want!

8/10

First what i want to say is,if you havent played any of Portal game you should play Portal 1 before the sequel because you will lose the story and fun from Portal 1 even the prequel is from 2007.``SPOILERS``:I believe the game took me around 10 hours to beat it for first time but i was helped at harder chambers because i was a begginer still at that time.Now its 3 types of gels:BLUE gel that makes you jumping higher,ORANGE gel that makes you running fast and white gel that makes the unsurpotable parts for portals to be possibile to put them,new characters like Wheatley,also he is the antagonist of the game,also GLaDOs is now your friend almost at final of the game,also you will find more about the Aperture Science past.
Also is co-op mode that you with a friend,playing cooperative test chambers as robots,not humans,in beta Portal 2 Co-op,Chell and Mel (ununsed character) was the players,but in final co-op versions is 2 robots,one female other male,Atlas and P-Body,the person who host is Atlas (male) and the invited player is P-Body (female).Also the game have a lot more achievements than the prequel wich pretty much,mostly of them you will get passing the story of both moddes.Have fun with this game!

Amazing puzzle game with great mechanics !! Single player and great Coop mode to have fun.. For me the best the part though is the community levels !! 6 years since release and still the levels are enough to provide nice challenging puzzle experience.. this is a game that will stand the test of time.
