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.
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.
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 Hand-held 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.

Picking up years after the original Portal left off, Aperture Science lab rat Chell is awakened from stasis by bumbling personality core Wheatley (brilliantly voiced by Stephen Merchant) and thrown right back into the maze of "tests" and mind-bending puzzles that made the first game such a success. As her old nemesis GLaDOS is also quickly awakened, Chell must use the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device to survive - and try to escape.
If you played the first Portal and liked it even a little, don't hesitate to pick this game up. It improves upon it's predecessor in every way - the gameplay is even smoother, the storyline is expanded with the same sense of wit and irreverence you've come to expect from Valve, and you get a full-sized story mode for your buck. I can't say enough good things about the writing and voice acting; it's jaw-droppingly funny in parts, and truly touching in others. As for the game itself? The puzzles are very smart, to the point where you're left with a beautiful sense of triumph as you figure each one out. Chell is given no other weapons than the ASHPD, but the game designers apply this mechanic in increasingly inventive and clever ways, so gameplay never feels stale. Just as you master one aspect of the device, they twist the mechanic on it's head by introducing something new and showing you new ways to use the tools you've already got (most notable are the colored gels that you can apply to surfaces to change how you interact with them, the fluid mechanics of which are brilliant!).Read more ›
Portal was such an original concept for a first person shooter (FPS) and done so well that it was an instant success... even though it was packaged along with some other games in the Orange Box... it was begging for a sequel.
Enter Portal 2! This is such an awesome addition to the first that it is hard to find the words. Once again you are placed in a situation where you must use your wits, cunning and of course portals to survive and escape from a series of traps and puzzles designed to test your abilities.
The voice acting is awesome and hilarious... although the developers really know how to change the tone into a more serious and even spooky atmosphere at the drop of a hat.
The environments are huge and detailed! Just look at and read the signs placed throughout the game. You are even given almost a history lesson for Aperture Science as you progress through the game (almost a bit of an easter egg, but only bits and pieces of it are hidden).
However, in addition to the fantastic single player campaign and gameplay, in comes a second player! That's right! Portal 2 has a 2 player mode where you and a partner (2 testing robots) play through a series of tests that require you to work together to solve the puzzles. This is a great game to play if you want to introduce someone to the world of FPS gaming as you can literally walk through the game with them (even using the ping tool to have them look and portal to where they need to).
I have no reservations what-so-ever about giving this a hearty thumbs up! If you like FPS games, or puzzle games, this is about as good as it gets when you combine the two!
Portal was already known for its dialogue and intricate puzzles, but Portal 2 manages to out-do it's predecessor in ways you couldn't even imagine. The storyline keeps you enthralled throughout the entire game; truly. It seems like the very minute you think you're about to become bored of the game, it will flip the entire storyline on its head and have you wishing you could just stick to your couch all day.
The plot, dialogue, voice acting, characters and gameplay make for one of the most solid games of year, and will probably have the longevity and strength to remain one of the best games of the decade.
You will absolutely not regret it purchasing and playing this game. Enjoy!
