I like to keep my opinion short when I talk about this game. Only because I feel I'll spoil it for people. If you have played it you know what I mean. Let me just say it is nothing you would expect. i have never played Portal I just went straight to Portal 2 and was very very happy. I spent 60usd and bought because it's so amazing. Actually it was on sale i ended getting it for 1.50 with a cheap trade in, I would've payed 60 in a heartbeat. The game still leaves me a little speechless.
The fact the Steam is available is incredible. Co-op is just as fun as the story, if not funner because of playing with your friends. unlike most games where they add a co-op mode and put no thought into it, this games co-op is very well put together and you can tell they put just as much work into it as single player. I was shocked to have the option to play with my friends that don't even own a ps3. I was sitting playing with a friend on my ps3 while he was on his pc. I hope Steam takes off for the ps3, it is a great feature.
I'll end with saying try to play Portal 1 first, I think you can get it through Steam for 10 bucks, on your pc of course but don't worry you won't miss out on trophies because there are none till 2. Or grab the orange box which is impossible to find. Another option is watch a few videos on youtube about the storyline in Portal 1. That's what I did and I have no regrets. I would not just pop in Portal 2 without at least knowing what was going on in Portal, you may ruin it for yourself by just playing it without any knowledge of Portal 1's story. I take that back it will be great no matter how you plat it.
Have a fun time and don't quite because you don't like puzzle games just give it time.

This game is unbelievably fun... in most parts. The first 2/3s of the game I might have given it a 10 in rating, but then the gameplay changes. You are taken out of the testing rooms, ( the incredibly fun part in my opinion) and dumped in the middle of nowhere due to a plot change. I didn't finish the game because I was bored, so don't disown the game completely. It is for the most part a very fun game, and is definitely worth renting, but if I were you I would wait for the price to go down to $40.
