Portal 2 is the full-length sequel to hit video game Portal (and if for some strange reason you haven’t actually played the original Portal yet, by all means you really should do so first ).

Amazingly— considering the excellence of the first game— every element in Portal 2 has been given an upgrade, from its music to its story to its characters to its humor to its gameplay to its complexity to its length (…etc.). Indeed, as awesome as the first game truly is (as we mention in its review, literally the only reason we gave it 5 & 1/3 Stars instead of 5 & 1/2 was because it’s short!), Portal 2 somehow manages to be even more awesome. And with the introduction of numerous new gameplay elements, several satirically and/or anti-humorly witty new characters, a fairly comprehensive backstory, and some truly excellent near-realtime escape-for-your-life sequences, Portal 2 is also even more immersive.

Also newly introduced is two-player co-op, which is basically a second full-length game (as of course the storyline and all the puzzles have to be quite different to accommodate two players). And the true teamwork necessary for this portion of the game is actually quite amazing (and quite fun ).

In short, this is everything Portal fans hoped it would be— and a truly excellent game in itself.

So what are you waiting for? Go play Portal, and then Portal 2— because they are both absolutely fantastic.

Our rating for the Portal 2 video game: 5 & 1/2 Stars. 5 & 1/2 Stars

This may vary, depending on how long you let some characters ramble, but at the least there are several uses each of the curse-word-in-some-countries “bloody”, D***, and H***.
