What is it?
Portal 2 is the sequel to Valve’s much-heralded Portal game, and the single player mode sees you play as a mute protagonist named Chell. It’s a unique puzzle-platformer type game where you have to navigate the test areas, offices and general building areas within Aperture Science’s headquarters. There is also a multiplayer option which sees you take control of one of two robots as they perform co-operative tasks to get through each one of the chambers.
Unique, challenging puzzles.
Brilliant voice acting.
Multiplayer offers even more fun.
If anything, the game is a little short.
I played Portal 2 on release and loved it, and I recently picked it back up to play with a friend and fell in love with it all over again. It’s a brilliant game with a lot of decent puzzles to make your way through. The multiplayer options really do add a significant difference to how you play the game, so it’s well worth playing, especially as it always seems to be on offer lately!
