Portal 2 is a first-person puzzle game developed by Valve Corporation and released on April 19, 2011 on Steam, PS3 and Xbox 360. It was published by Valve Corporation in digital form and by Electronic Arts in physical form.

Its plot directly follows the first game's, taking place in the Half-Life universe. You play as Chell, a test subject in a research facility formerly ran by the company Aperture Science, but taken over by an evil AI that turned upon its creators, GladOS. After defeating GladOS at the end of the first game but failing to escape the facility, Chell is woken up from a stasis chamber by an AI personality core, Wheatley, as the unkempt complex is falling apart. As the two attempt to navigate through the ruins and escape, they stumble upon GladOS, and accidentally re-activate her...

Portal 2's core mechanics are very similar to the first game's ; the player must make their way through several test chambers which involve puzzles. For this purpose, they possess a Portal Gun, a weapon capable of creating teleportation portals on white surfaces. This seemingly simple mechanic and its subtleties coupled with the many different puzzle elements that can appear in puzzles allows the game to be easy to start playing, yet still feature profound gameplay. The sequel adds several new puzzle elements, such as gel that can render surfaces bouncy or allow you to accelerate when running on them.

The game is often praised for its gameplay, its memorable dialogue and writing and its aesthetic. Both games in the series are responsible for inspiring most puzzle games succeeding them, particularly first-person puzzle games. The series, its characters and even its items such as the portal gun and the companion cube have become a cultural icon within gaming communities.

Portal 2 also features a co-op mode where two players take on the roles of robots being led through tests by GladOS, as well as an in-depth level editor.

        (20.02.2018) Portal 2: ———————————————— ┅ € ┅ * * Price numbers ☑ Wait where to buy somewhere else ┅ *-Graphic-I, very, very bad * * Sehr * * * The only thing for hard Players is ┅-Easy to learn, but Still difficult to play, but still difficult to play ☑-┅ Long (12 + Hours)-Infinity ┅-"Story"-"There is no" worse " ┅ * * Bugs \ Errors-┅ The Game itself is a big Mistake-Bugs destroy the Game-A Pair of Bugs ☑ No Bugs that To rob you of The Fun of the game, no _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Since it is now becoming the Story of it Uheard-In my Opinion. The Graphics are quite nice considering that Game has already had a few Years on its Back. Portal 2 is basically a Puzzle, Strategy game in which it is all about solving the different Levels with its portal gun to escape from this "test lab." If you are reasonably good you can make the Game in 6-10 Hours. I have not Noticed any mistakes-from me a clear KAUFEMPFEHLING

        + Innovative Game Mechanics and Story portal 2 is a Declaration of Love for Science. The Game tries to help humanity, or Aperture Science, break through on several multidimensional Meta-levels by continuously testing. After intensive Research in the worldwide Computer network system [de.valve.wikia.com], the Trainee who authored this Text found the following three Meta-levels to be particularly noteworthy: Meta-level: The "Secret Konter Manoeuvre"-A safe Technique for the Life-saving "Heimlich Maneuvers." Meta-level: The "Nimm-ein-Wunsch Foundation"-A nonprofit That acquires the Wishes of the Parents of terminally ill children and redistributes them to wiseless but healthy Adults. Meta-level: Tearing Something down from the Structure of the Universe ... That would ... So, it would kind of like, he means he has no Idea anything that would help with the Shower Curtains, he reckons to believe. He did not elaborate on this Idea, just like The one with the Desired taking. By the way, you learn how to handle the "Aperture Science Handheld (Dual) Portal Device" like a Pro (i.e. like Chell) and get a free Mine Tour in Upper Michigan. And Cancer. But It will be healed again. + Characters Man plays a Girl! Uähhh ... However, the two artificial Intelligences GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System) and Wheatley (Wheat Field) are always on Hand to help you from any predicament. The "Weighted Companion Cube," the Turrets as well as the friendly Mr. Cave Johnson are, last but not least, also part of the Lot. + Coop mode and Workshop The Coop mode brings Fun for two, the Workshop brings a lot of Content. Verdict: 10/10 Genius Game. Hopefully a third Part will come soon.
        This is a masterpiece, the story, the puzzles, the characters, everything is really well done.

        Play the first Portal game before playing this, as the story picks up right after the first one. The game is littered with references to the first game, which while aren't necessary to enjoy the game really enhance the writing and story.
