"Now you're thinking with Portals!"

This game is just fantastic.

Being a huge fan of The Orange Box, specifically Portal and then hearing about this games release make me pretty excited. If you've ever played Portal 1 you know what to expect, the same morbid humor from GLaDDoS and even a few new characters.

Portal 2 takes the same exact game play mechanics from Portal 1 and throws in quiite a few new things in to make the puzzles even more fun and frustrating. Probably the biggest edition to the series is the introduction of Co-Op multiplayer. You play as two robots created for testing helping each other through the various levels, using your own individual Portal devices to navigate these seemingly impossible tests.

If you enjoyed Portal 1 or Portal: Still Alive (DLC edition) you're going to love the new aspects and characters that Portal 2 brings to the table.

Buy or Rent: RENT-- Simply because once you've completed the single player and co-operative modes, you're going to blaze through the levels because you remember them.

Portal 2 from the POV of some one new to the story

This game was recommended to me by my supervisor at work believe it or not and I wasn’t disappointed in the least. You don’t need to play the first one to be able to jump into this sequel but it does make you want to get a hold of it just to see how it all began. As I’ve always seen with Valve they strive to impress and this is yet another example of how. Portal 2 is an outstanding title and a rather interesting break away from the standard "shooter" most gamers are used to playing. It will make you think and there is little to no repetition in the puzzles. Best of all it’s one of those games you don’t have to worry about who you play it with or where as it is still a blast but is very clean. Ill definitely be giving this game a second play through before sending this one back. If your not afraid to break away from the norm and are especially a fan of Valve then this is well worth the rent!!

The dark humor of this game was toned down from the original. I was happy to see GLADOS back even though you "killed" her in the first game.

This game looks awesome, plays great and I found no technical flaws at all.

There are new gameplay elements to the puzzles as well as Awesome co-op.

There are many puzzles which will challenge you, some are very hard but all are enjoyable and the underlying story moves the game along at a good pace.

I highly recommend this game..
