Portal 2 review
Exceptional
by Kyle Weber

Portal 2 is an amazing game:  the core puzzles are perfectly executed (if a bit easy), the humor is good enough that most of the jokes land even on the second (or later) playthrough, the storyline is very engaging, the characters are extremely well-written, the voice acting is better than many movies that saw a theatrical release, the world-building is amazing, and just playing around with a portal gun gives the players so much flexibility in how to confront each level that the game feels open-ended in spite of having a tightly crafted linear story. 

Haven't played the co-op in years so I can't comment on that aspect but the fact that you can get this game on sale for under $5 is insane given the quality.  Did I mention that the gameplay decision decisions and graphics feel like something an AAA might still release today even though the game came out years ago? 

Recommended more than even this laudatory review suggests, just get it already!

Hours of fun in co op, more fun playing single player, better than the first, a genuine story now
Still one of, if not the, funniest games ever made, moreso than the first game. Probably held up by its humor more than its learning curve, unlike the first game. The whole Caroline subplot is a bit unnecessary and the middle part can turn into a bit of a "find the white wall" hunt, but it all comes together well in the end in frankly one of the better final boss fights I've played.
