★★★★ The orig­i­nal Por­tal stood tall for two rea­sons: clever puz­zle­based game­play and great writ­ing. In these de­part­ments the se­quel doesn’t dis­ap­point. Once again play­ers are us­ing a por­tal gun to bend the laws of space to con­nect dis­parate lo­ca­tions, but this time puzzles utilise more el­e­ments and are more var­ied. The sin­gle-player story’s not that dif­fi­cult, but the co-op cam­paign, where two play­ers have four por­tals with which to work, is a chal­lenge.
