Trivia

There is a newspaper clipping that reads "Local entrepreneur buys salt mine," "Cave Johnson to bring science, industry to Upper Michigan," establishing the location of the Aperture Science test labs. See more »

Goofs

At one point in the game GLaDOS says that she will live forever while Chell would die in sixty years or less. GLaDOS was "killed" in Portal and still refers to the event with phrases like "since you killed me" and "after you murdered me". See more »

Quotes

Cave Johnson: Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out.

Crazy Credits

The game menus change via a spinning tile effect, identical to the spinning tiles Wheatley and GLaDOS use in the game to create mosaic patterns and words on the walls of the test chambers. See more »

Challenging, funny, non violent!
26 April 2011 | by justinmb1598See all my reviews

After playing Call of Duty, Homefront, and other first person shooters, I got very bored with video games. Portal 2 changes that boringness. First off, Portal 2 has no violence besides a little bit of red when you get shot by a robot. Other than that, no shooting "guns" and no killing. Instead of weapons, you use wits. The puzzles start off easy in the beginning, but as the game progresses, it gets difficult, but without getting you aggravated. You can explore easter eggs, secrets, and other ways to solve puzzles. The story is great, and there are some pretty surprising character developments throughout the story. Graphics are 100% amazing. It gives you a rusty, beaten down feel, which is what the developer's goal was. Add in the non stop humor said by several characters, and you got yourself a game! 10/10 for me, and the best video game in a while!
