Portal 2 (2011)
I can't say anything that hasn't already been said.
This game is excellent in almost every aspect. As a sequel, it completely blows the original Portal into the background. Lengthier, more complex, a stronger plot, and more humor is included. Some points of the game will simply drop your draw, whether it be the upgraded graphics, the fantastic new settings, the strange and mysterious back story you are presented with, or the simply astounding puzzles that you must solve as you work your way through the game. You may even have to pause the game to laugh, as the new and old characters return, brought to life with some of the most ingenious writing you could imagine.
It's just amazing that people could come up with a concept so unique, original, and fascinating as the story of Portal. Continuing the story as Chell, you wake up from suspension, hundreds of years after the first game, to find that the lab is in ruins. As a personality sphere called Wheatley tries to help you escape, you must solve complex puzzles that put the original Portal game to shame, using not only your beloved Portal device, but a number of new tools that only the wonderful minds of VALVe (or, more appropriately, Aperture Science) can provide. Along the way you will learn the terrific history of Aperture Laboratories and how it connects to Chell and the creation of GLaDOS. Friends will become enemies and enemies will become friends, and count on a number of various surprises and plot twists in between.
Portal and Portal 2 are nothing short of works of art. I can guarantee that investing in this game is not something you will regret. It is truly a classic among video games and a truly unique experience for all gamers. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control (and apparently beyond control of the Playstation Network), I cannot include a review of the multi-player co-op portion of the game in my review.
