A fantastic game by fantastic developers!
I loved the Half-Life series and Portal so I became extremely excited when I discovered they were making a sequel to the mind bending puzzle game. This game is way better than the first one. I would recommend this to anyone who loves puzzle games.
BUY IT NOW!
This game is the best game I've played in years.This game is a lot better than the first portal, they added a few minor and non-minor things to this game.Compared to Portal, you now have multiplayer! You can play with your xbox friends or you can play with random people. They also added bouncing jell and speed jell. The speed jell, when you walk on it, it makes you go faster to get to farther places. The bouncing jell makes you bounce higher to get to unreached places. I don't want to give away too much detail like a review does, but overall this is one of the top three games in my book. But if your thinking of getting this, its a puzzle game, but the puzzles aren't impossible.If your new to portal, you have a portal gun and your trying to get t point A to point B with only a portal gun and other supplies.And this robot (Glados sorry if i spelled it wrong) is trying to kill you. I'm a long talker, but overall BUY THIS GAME AND POTAL 1!!!!!!
My second favorite game
This game is just all around amazing! It has great graphics, the robots are funny, the puzzles are pretty fun, and even though I got it 3 years ago I am still playing it over and over again. It has really good sound quality with a frame drop of 0. The secret areas are also really cool if you can find them. Overall it is my second favorite game that is only beaten by uncharted 2.
Worst game I have ever played!
Bad gameplay, stupid puzzles, and NO DIFFERENCE from the original Portal make this game a piece of abomination. DO NOT BUY! LISTEN TO ME, DO NOT BUY AT ALL COSTS!
One of the best games of all time in my opinion
This game is great for so many reasons; I got 5 days of on and off play my first time through the singleplayer, but loved it the whole way through. As far as the tests, an occasional break is sometimes necessary, but, there really are no tests that made me want to rip my hair out. The story is deep and compelling; it takes no less than a team of writers from Valve to create something this great. But what makes this game for me is it's style of humor; some of the jokes will have you laughing for YEARS after playing this, even if they might be a bit dark. The levels can be dark and forboding, but most of the time you will be focused on the test rather than the sets. You don't even need to play the original, (you can just look up a plot synopsis) and won't want to after finishing this one. The co-op is also immensely fun, though actually a bit more difficult than the singleplayer, requiring a little bit more timing and communication, but that was to be expected. It, too, is also really funny, especially in the Peer Review DLC (which is free). There's not much reason to play the singleplayer again, but I play if I have some free time and don't feel like playing anything else. There is a decent amount of replay value in the co-op, just to see what kind of test-related antics can result. So, as I said, I think this is one of the best games of all-time (minus classics like Pong, Asteroids, etc.) for great story, great characters, great atmosphere, great gameplay, and most of all, great humor.
Best game ever!
As the title says, this is quite literally the greatest game ever created. Between the humor, gameplay, and all of the challenges, you will never be bored. I have play through this game at least 10 times, and I have loved every minute of it. Best game ever created!
Possibly the most boring game I've ever played
This game is possibly one of the most boring games I've ever played. Imagine the tacked on game, Portal, from the orange box. Now imagine it longer (like 5-6 hours), and with more forced jokes. You have Portal 2.
The game is basically a puzzle game where you play in first person and shoot portals to solve puzzles, most of which are like those puzzles from other FPSes but without the combat to space things out. You also encounter unfunny dialogue that tries really hard to be funny, for those who find observational humor mixed in with random dark humor funny. In fact, that's really the only kind of humor you find in the game.
The setting is you are trapped in the aperture science labs, after somehow robots drag you back in an ending which was changed in Portal 1, and run through an even blander lab with even more unfunny jokes. The graphics look like Half Life 2 on the Original Xbox, despite the fact there are far better looking games, and the voices can get a bit annoying. Especially when you hear unfunny jokes that leave you cringing instead of laughing. There is also a plot twist which is obviously not a reference to Dead Space or Bioshock.
There is no replay value. Once you play it the first time it goes back on the shelf, especially once the jokes stop being remotely funny. There is a co op mode, but it's also forgettable, you need party chat to talk to the other person, and after playing it for 15 min the game will go back in the case.
Please save your money. I'd only recommend this game to hardcore Portal fans who will buy anything with Portal on it. Anyone else should avoid at all costs.
The game is awesome the graphics are great and the storyline is great. i love portal 2. the game is awesome and i have had 100s of hours of fun.
My favorite game since pokemon
I didn't get portal till well after its release. But when i did i felt really glad i did. The puzzles in each room are interesting. While some maybe pretty easy, some took me a bit of playing around to figure out. Portal is not for you if you if you can't take some time to figure things out.
Hey I think i'm Smart
This game will make you feel so smart after figuring out all the puzzles trust me if your one of the dum ones not to be rude it will make you feel more smarter trust me this game is very tricky and this game makes you stop and think most of the time and its just a great game it really helps and at the same time it is fun.
