Product Description

Platform for Display: PC/Mac

Amazon.ca Product Description

Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following. The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game. The game's two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

From Amazon.ca

Portal 2 is a unique first-person Action-Puzzle-Platforming game that tests player's ability to think and act creatively as they use the game's ingenious wormhole creating portal gun to produce their own paths through otherwise sealed surfaces and across the open spaces of the game. Sequel to the original Portal game -- the surprise add-on hit included in Valve Corporation's 2007 release The Orange Box -- Portal 2 continues the storyline from the first game, featuring both new and returning characters, and poses a range of new challenges making for a much deeper game. Additional features include a new two player co-op mode and an original soundtrack.

Welcome Back to Aperture Laboratories

In Portal 2 players awake in the Aperture Science Labs as Chell, the heroine of the original game. A great expanse of time has passed since the conclusion of the first game and the gameworld has fallen into visible disrepair, but placed in suspended animation, Chell has survived intact and is revived. With the help of a robotic entity the concluding events of the past game are revealed and you escape your initial confinement, but in doing so GLaDOS, the the AI computer antagonist from the previous game is also reawakened. Just as fickle as ever, GLaDOS' motives are unknown. Insisting on testing you, it may assist you but may also be planning something more sinister.

Gameplay

Like the original game, Portal 2 is a first-person Platform-Puzzle game. In the single player campaign players assume the role of Chell, a former test subject trying to gain her freedom from the Aperture Science facility and GLaDOS, the AI controller of the facility. Set in the test chambers of the facility your goal is to make your way through the game levels using your portal gun (the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device). The portal gun creates temporary passages through solid surfaces, allowing for creative platforming and multiple possible means of clearing a level. The game also requires the player to solve puzzles at times to clear sections of levels. In addition to point-to-point movement through portals, players can also utilize other means of movement of themselves and various objects. These include: using the momentum of portal movement to make jumps to open positions like ledges; tractor beams; and special propulsion/repulsion gels that can be carried or stored.

New Cooperative Mode

Portal 2 contains a multiplayer option in the form of a two-player co-op mode. This is playable both locally and online, with split-screen functionality available in local play and in select places during online play. Players assume the role of one of two robotic characters, Atlas or P-body, both new to the franchise. These two have separated from the control of GLaDOS and so must survive its anger, divvied out in the form puzzles, obstacles and misdirection. Each player has control of their own portal gun, which they use to platform through the game levels, avoiding its dangers and relying on each other.

This game brings the same high quality gaming experience that the original Portal surprised everyone with and builds on it to create an unforgettable gaming experience.

Great thought provoking puzzles(with much greater volume and variety than the first game).

Great comedy and character development.

Additional unique co-op multi-player campaign.

This game was developed by Valve; this company has a great reputation for supporting and updating their games with new features/content long past any amount of time that would be considered reasonable to most other developers.

Valve has done it again! Portal 2 expands greatly upon the original in scope and story. Great gameplay and humour as well.

This product didn't work. I went online looking for support. About
two weeks later I got a reply that was so technical I doubt
that a true Geek would be able to follow it. Lesson
learned....Don't buy games on-line.

Some might disagree, but for me, this is the best game I've ever played. Seamlessly both draws upon the first game, whilst simultaneously adding on to it. Thanks again, Valve.

... BUT it's definitely NOT the case with Portal 2! The first Portal revolutionized the gaming industry by bringing in a new concept of a video game. Portal 2 uses this concept introduced in the first and pushes it to its full potential, resulting in an amazing game! Anyone who has played and liked Portal should try Portal 2.

This puzzle game was excellent all the way through the single player but really shines in co-op. The downside is you learn who your analytic friends are and those who are lacking...
