Summary: I thought Portal was a perfect game. It's the first video game I've looked forward to playing in years. I dislike the stress levels so basic to most shooters. So this sequel had a lot to live up to. But there are some changes. GladOS, who I thought was perfectly written and voiced in the first game, now is performed differently, with an attempt to make her sound more emotional. I was very disappointed by this. She did not need improving.
Summary: The game is really fun and I love the fact that you have to use your head to figure out the puzzles the online co-op is really good and the fact that PS3 gamers can play with PC gamers is awesome. When you but it for the PS3 you get a free copy for the PC which is amazing so you do get your monies worth I highly recommend it to any gamer or puzzle lover person out there.
Summary: Portal 2 is just as solid a title as the original - full of perplexing puzzles and witty dialogue. Add to that the ability to play co-op and you have a very entertaining game. Highly recommended.
Summary: As others have said, this is a direct follow up to the original Portal game and picks up where that game left off. However, previous experience with the first Portal game is not necessary. I've played the original Portal before while my boyfriend had not and both of us found this equally enjoyable. If you like puzzles, you will enjoy this game.
Excerpt: Portal 2 is the epic sequel to Portal. The scene is set in your own cell. You are trapped with no way out, so it seems. You are given guns that you can make portals with by shooting at certain surfaces. You are also given a little buddy that visits with you, and ends up becoming very useful later on. You go through series of tests and rooms with a nagging computer voice putting you down the entire time! This computer hates your guts.
