by CultivatedBunny Portal 2 will be EPIC!!!
Portal 2 is one of the games that I am really looking foreword to this year. There is going to be a 6-7 hours of single player campaign and also a whole new story for co-op campaign that is going to be 6-7 hours as well. In total you get about 12-14 hours of gameplay by just playing the campaign's them self and lets not forget the pc custom maps that pc users of portal 2 will make that will be sent to xbox for us to get hopefully for free. It's like buying two games in one if you tell me. I love all the new stuff they added to the game and just cant wait to play it with a friend or by myself. Hope this review was helpful in making up your minds about buying the game. Portal 2 here I come!

by nickgamerscore Innovative, Spectacular, Just plain fun!
This is, one of the most greatest games I have ever played. The visuals, the graphics, the sounds, are definetely one of a kind. Portal 2 is a huge step up from the original, Portal: Still Alive. I recomend that you buy this game in-stores used because many of the people who returned it only returned it because X-box live is glitching. That is only because of PSN network being down. All of the people on PS3 are switching to X-box. Ask them if this is true though, and check the disc first. Depending on who works in the store, they will more than likely tell you the same exact thing. A great buy for any party!

by NateGame A great game.
This is a very good game. This game is a great told story, it's funny and it's just plain out fun. You'll meet many characters along the way, too. An awesome story and it's really funny, how could it get any better? Well, along with the single player campaign, there's a completely different story in the multiplayer campaign. New puzzles and new places to explore. And it feels as if you need the buddy to complete the story, too. If one person is just slacki'n around, you won't get anywhere. Overall, this is a must buy for any gamer.

I loved the first Portal and played it over and over, this one is a bit longer and the Multi-player is very fun in this sequel. I recommend this and also, FYI on the Xbox 360 if you see the offline Co-Op 2 player's, do not be fooled, it requires to X-box 360 and 2 copy's of the same game. The box info on the back and on this site will miss lead. Still, awesome game.

portal 2 was a great game, (and still is) with it's edge cutting graphics and it's futuristic look. it teaches people not to judge a book by its cover. (or in this case, not to judge a video game by its case) it is definetly one of valves best game. period

Rated 9 out of 10 by ZarvanisX The ultimate puzzle game
Portal was an amazing game, and Portal 2 is even better. The puzzles are brilliantly made, and can be highly challenging. The variety and layouts keep the game from getting stale, always offering a new challenge. The graphics and animation are great, and the dark and colorful environments really give you a feel for where you are as you progress through the game. The ruins and debris of Aperture look very realistic. The story is also awesome. Giving a whole new perspective on Aperture and GLaDOS. Unlike most puzzle games, this one not only requires finding the solution, but well timed jumps and portal placements are required to get through to the end. It's a decent length, and the ending made me want more puzzles. The Co-op doesn't fill that void too much, since it can be extremely frustrating working with another person. But if you can get along and work together, it's worth the play. Portal 2 is easily amongst the greatest games ever made, and is definitely worth Game of the Year.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ballerv Very well made game for any kind of gamer
As stated in the title, Portal 2 is a very well made game. It fits for a causal gamer, a hardcore gamer, and even a child gamer. The game is still amazing even if you never played the original (although i do suggest it). The game is very creative for a puzzle game and will eventually have you think in means of portals. The voice acting of the game is marvelous as all actors had a stellar performance. Ellen McLain as GlaDos, Stephen Merchant as Wheatly, and J.K. Simmons as Cave Johnson are all hysterical. The writing is very clever and very well thought out. The twists in the story are very unexpected, but still very satisfying. The graphics look good as the art style is quite unique. The co op will keep you playing even after completion of the main story. My recommendations are varied as you can see any type of gamer can enjoy this game. If any game deserves a ten, it is Portal 2. Hats off to Valve who has published a work of art amid a world of first person shooters.
Rated 10 out of 10 by theREALalbino Surpassing all expectations!!
I bought this game from GameStop a couple days after it came out. I thoroughly enjoyed the masterpiece of the original Portal, and thought I would like this one as well. Like is an EXTREME understatement! This game is awesome!! The story carried out perfectly, the graphics were quite surprising for the Source engine, and the dialogue is hilarious. I played through the Single Player campaign and after all that, I have to say, I like this more than any Halo/ Call of Duty game! The ending was AMAZING. I wont tell you what happens, you'll have to play it yourself, but it has to be one of the best endings to a game ever! Seriously, you should get this game! I highly recommend you get it, because, once you complete the single player, theres still the Co-op campaign. This takes a lot of Cooperation and teamwork, but is still very satisfying none the less. I also love that it is out on consoles as well as PC. This lets Xbox or PS3 players play the game on a system theyre comfortable with. All around Excellent game. Thank you Valve.
Rated 10 out of 10 by cookoo 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!!!!!!
