Still haven't picked up Portal 2 after disliking the first. Will try it eventually though.
If u dont like the 1st you are in no crown to play the 2nd, the 2nd only builds and gets more complicated than the first.

Thats kinda a vague statement...What about it did you not like??

I do have to say Portal 1 was very very short...however Portal took me 9 hours to beat...Although I am not the best in the world when it comes to solving puzzles.

Yeah it was really bland overall, Portal 2 looks a lot better though.

Portal 1 was more or less a demo

And a great one at that.


Portal 2 definitely had more "story" to it and some more interesting gameplay, enough to actually be considered a full retail game.

I really liked both Portals, have to find time for Co-op now too

Would like to know what happened to Chell after the end. How the world has changed etc.

Portal 1 was INTENDED to be the way it was; not much of an engaging story. Leaves you bewildered at what the story behind Aperture Science is, wanting much more, which is where Portal 2 delivers.

Very true. I felt so close all the time so I kept playing it despite finding it rather boring, didn't like the gameplay. It's a strong drive, although somewhat forced and dirty, since I don't like puzzles much. Oh and it makes me wonder...

I loved every bit of portal 2, the first one seemed like a demo compared to this one.

I was as well very pleased with what valve pulled off, the co-op was epic to say the least.
So, so good puzzles.

Now we just need more co-op content!
