Breath of FRESH AIR!!!!
Portal 2 is a masterpiece created by Valve and the follow-up to the "Cult Classic" Portal. This game is amazing from beggining to end. If you're a fan of puzzle and adventure games this is the game for you!
Someone thoughtfully used their brains.
It's an outstanding feat when look at it. Portal 2 at heart is a puzzle game that transcends farther than what it should be. The puzzles are fanatically thought up by the guys at Valve. Each one will have you scratching your head, wondering how to solve them and when you do; a feeling of gratification suddenly appears. But that's the magic of the developers flawless level design. Portal 2 has some pretty nice looking visuals, nothing mind-blowing of course. It's running on valves 7 year old source engine, but surprising it still manages to look superb. Some nice physic effects and moody art-direction makes the game recieve the nice graphical treatment. Audio wise, the game is top notch. Thanks to gaming's greatest written screenplay, the dialogue in the game makes each of the actors voice overs come to life in a big way. Wheatly, glados and others add to unforgettable gaming cast. When your done with the 6-8 hour singleplayer mode, you'll be able to play alongside a friend and solve puzzles together. This is a separate mode. Once again, it remains as well written, funny and entertaining as the single player mode. You'll chunk through everything the game has to offer in about 12 hours, but those who continue dive into it's world might find it impossible to leave even after 30. Overall: Portal 2 is the definition of gaming perfection. Well written-funny dialogue, Incredible cast of characters, amazing level design.. we can keep going on. Portal 2 just does a lot of modern games don't do and it doesn't even need explosions to do so. Give you a thoughtfully, unique and perfectly structured video game.
Portal 2 is so awesome I literaly craped my pants.
Thre words: GAME OF THE YEAR. Incredibly funny, amazing storyline, best ending, sweet gameplay, excellent graphics. My favorite game yet. NOTE: It might be REALLY hard if you haven't played the first, which is not a big deal cuz the orange box is like less than 20 bucks
Awesome upcoming game.
This game is even better than the original Portal. While i haven played this game yet, I've had a mysterious dream, dealing with custom bots and GLaDoS. I got to play a demo over night and was extremely thrilled. This game will be amazing.
Portal 2 is one of the best games that I have ever played.
Science class to the max
Portal 2 is a gem unlike any other. Continuing from the story plot, you wake up in another cryo chamber then meet a humorous artificial intelligence core named Wheatley who plans on making you escape. Now, single player is not a thing that all people enjoy in video games, they prefer to compete with or play with a friend/enemy. Portal 2 lets you compare ranks within test chambers you complete in single player by time and amount of portals you use. Even though you can compete you could also cooperate with players. In co-op mode, you and a friend play as Atlas and P-body, two robots powered by AI cores that don't know anything, You work with GLADOS (the villain from the previous game) to help unlock the cryo tubes to save the other test subjects. You could even high five players for a good job. To conclude, Portal is as funny as Seth Macfarlane, Epic as Chuck Norris, and mart as Steven Hawkings (and I'm not exaggerating).
Note: there is more to the game, but that just spoils the fun :)
So very good!
I had really really high expectations for Portal 2, because the first game was so good. They did not dissapoint, this game is on the must buy list! The graphics are top notch, the story is better than the first, the voice acting is funny and great to keeps the story moving. I have yet to play through the multi player stuff however, the single player is enough to justify the price. The game play is pretty much the same as the first with a lot more tools and some of the puzzles will take you a while to get through unless you are some sort of genius, they took the info from fans of the first and added a lot of that to this game to make it great. This game is for any type of gamer the hard core have challenge modes the casuals can play through single and multi player the game is just a lot of fun and easy to pick up and put down even my 6yr old likes it. Hurry up and buy it :D
Portal 2 is an amazing game, period. The innovative puzzles introduced in the first game have returned with even more elements (like lasers, gels, and "Aerial Faith Plates"), exponentially increasing the mind-boggling fun. The puzzles truly get your brain working, and finding the solution is always a pleasure. And as if the clever gameplay wasn't enough, the game picks up where Portal left off with a movie-worthy story and a cast of brilliant characters. Almost all of these characters harbor interesting and flawed personalities, and each and every one of them is hilarious in one way or another. Seriously, Portal 2 is as much a game about humour as it is a game about puzzles. The game's graphics and music are decent, and its lasting appeal is strengthened greatly by a co-op multiplayer mode (which I admittedly have very little experience with), and the option to create your own test chambers and share them with others. That last feature is immensely entertaining, if only to experience the brilliant creations others have made. I honestly cannot think of a major flaw in Portal 2. Perhaps the dark humor that it presents can be a bit off-putting, but if you're able to stomach that then I recommend this game wholeheartedly. It's worth its price.
My mind has been blown.
First thing's first: If you have a PS3, get the PS3 version. It comes with a free steam copy of the game. Anyway, Portal 2 didn't meet my expectations, it blew them out of the water. Valve has created a masterpiece.The gameplay is tight and polished. The physics are spot-on,and there are no discernable glitches. The music and voice acting are unbelieveably good. The Single-player campaign is a little short, however. It takes only 10-12 hours to fully enjoy everything it has to offer, but then there's a separate co-op campaign. The co-op is awesome,but you absolutely need to do it with a friend. Trying to play with a total stranger using a chatbox to do all the talking is a pain. You need your friend either within shouting distance or a microphone to be successful here. All in all, you need to stop reading this babble, and click that buy button up there . ^^
