    "Love the storyline. The jokes were very well-written and they never fell flat. Highly recommended for people who are looking for multiplayer cooperative games. Hoping that a third installment is already in the works!"

    "It was hard to pull off a sequel with reusing what made the original too much. That is exactly what Valve was able to pull off. There is more emphasis on the story and character development this time around. The single player was great but the real star of the show was the co-op mode which transitions smoothly from the main campaign. One of the best co-op games around. Just fo play it."

    "It has been more than six years since the release of Portal 2 and now it is 2018 but i am still playing this game. This is one of the best co-op games i've played out there as through this you need to rely on your partners or else you won't be able to progress on your game. "

    "In our spatial reasoning exam, we were asked to play Portal 2 on that. It was my first time playing this game and I didn't know that there was this sort of shooting game. I like the storyline of this game and the humorous voice-overs. I've never enjoyed a game like this."

    "Portal 2 is a classic. I think everyone who has steam has played it at one time or another. It's always fun to play puzzle games with friends, and it does create some interesting memories. For example, me and my friend Sheldon were playing Portal 2, and he messed up one of my portals so I punched him in the face. Ok, not really, but I wanted to since we had to start over again (it was a hard level). It's a very well-written game, and it certainly provides a lot of interesting ways to accomplish certain goals.

    "In my opinion, Portal is best played with controllers. Steam's controller may be a bit difficult to get into because it has a touchpad instead of analog sticks but once I got the hang of it, it was great! :)"

    "hot take: this game is really easeir to play with Steam's touchpad controller than the the usual controllers from mainstream consoles. Well, that's maybe because I am a Linux gamer than a console gamer. "

    "The sequel to the rabidly popular Portal, Portal 2 builds on the formula the original created: make puzzles, make them hard, and make them fun. While it does run on FPS mechanics, there's really no "shooting" involved. It's a good puzzle game, though!"

    "Portal 2 is a puzzle game on Steam that has overwhelmingly positive reviews. It has both a single player mode and a totally different story for its co-op mode. The game has been around since 2011 but people are still actively playing it. That is a very good sign. This definitely address the problem."

    "My PC is a bit out dated, I struggle to run games that require a lot of GPU power or RAM so I was a bit worried about this game since it looks pretty good. So far it runs great though, you can tell they designed this game to run on just about anything. I get slightly lag in certain sections but it goes away quick once I move past it. "

    "I first played Portal 2 in 2011, I played on my ps3 with a friend and it was a blast! I'd almost forgot about this game and then I saw it for PC, the PC version lives up to the PS3 version, in fact it may be superior. I absolutely love the Portal franchise and I'm happy at least one developer still cares about "couch co-op." I would recommend this game to anyone that likes puzzles."

    "As one of the few games that offered local co-op when things were just starting to shift to MMO style, I can't recommend Portal 2 enough. It's not very action orientated, sure, but it's a good puzzle game and betraying your friends at the last second is pretty amusing in its own right."
