I just wish it was harder and longer. I only had trouble a few times playing this game, however overall it was some what easy... Perhaps thats because I played the first Portal so the concept was basically already done. A few new twists in Portal 2 but didn't take long to get the idea... Still I would say this is one of the best games in awhile... Keeping it on my shelf just for the chance of some DLC....
Good winner, the balance of the game was spot on that you would not need help but made you think how do I this and sometime it was the simple answer to the question that got the results, And the game was funny
Portal 2 ? "Challenging" ? "Makes you feel so incredibly smart" ? "Perfect balance between being challenging but never having logic that you can't work out on your own" ? Come on Gamespot, let's be serious for a moment. I'm not saying it doesn't deserve the title for its concept, its funny moments and the very welcome addition of a cooperative mode which isn't usually a part of puzzle games, but it could have been so much better would it have been longer and harder. Puzzle games are supposed to be hard, to require a few minutes even from long term gamers. Portal 2 wasn't difficult enough for core puzzle gamers.
A worthy winner of this category. I have played Portal 2 more times than I can count, and the storyline remains fresh and immersive.
