Take away the blood and the "I'll kill you" lines and there we go! It's rated E10 now! LoL... ESRB can be so random at times. xD Just like they rated the eechi moe galge game, Neptunia, T for Teen.

 

Overall this is one of the best games I've played. Unfortunately, due to its graphical updates, it lags on my crappy laptop A LOT (unstable 20FPS). Other VALVe games like HL2 and Portal 1 worked pretty smoothly on my crappy laptop. :/

I really do not get the complaints about the middle part of the game, I found those parts and the narritive just as funny as the rest of the game.  There are tons of little details in that area that add to the story.

I agree.  It was so frickin cool to be able to use the portal gun in "regular environments". You will find in the middle levels clues to future expansion of portal levels and more bonus content and all the a**********s. Now if you will excuse me I found the boat, and the lady in the portrait but I need to find the others.

Couldn't agree with you more.

I'd still give it a 9, but drop the kick-ass designator due to the length as Ghok mentioned.  6 hours to finish the single person campaign and about 3 hours to do the co-op side.  9 hours of total play for a $50 game?  Should have been sold for $30.   Not to mention replay value is about nil.  Once you've done it, you've done it.

You bragging?  Did you replay portal 1 right before you played 2? 

I agree that it's short, I agree that the price was rediculous for that length, but actually, I guess I agree w/ you completely. 

 But there is 1 replay value:  Time runs.  and time run contests.

Anothing thing to consider would be DLC and the first one being free. Thanks to the co-op and how co-op ends they have plenty of room for DLC both for single and co-op

Just some advice.  Amazon has it for $30.  That's 40% off.  That's a lot of milkshakes.

And there will be challenge levels + the mod tools are out.  All in good time Ghok.

I think Portal 2 was great, but I would like to have a little more replay value. Those extra challanges in the first game really did go a long way.

I heard rumors that Valve will be updating in challenges/etc on a later date. I really hope so because I agree. I played through both Coop and campaign twice and I'm really not compeled to ever play it again unless they give me those challenges.

Also, like someone else said, there will be mod tools so you can create or obtain community-created maps, something valve is pretty notorous for, which is why their games are played so much even after being out for a long time. Adds so much replayability. I say the 9 + Kickass reward is justified, I just can't wait to try some of the maps people create.

EDIT: Actually, the mod tools ARE out (despite still being in Beta, its open to anyone that owns Portal 2)

Not a rumor.  That DLC is supposed to come out in summer and be free across all platforms, at least according to the news on Steam.

I have to say it was an awesome game, I'm about 80% done, my only real problem was achievments for progress throughout the campaign.  How lame is that?  it's like a graduation party for going from 5th to 6th grade.  

Achievments for doing something extra = awesome.  Achievements for just finishing a level not so much.

Bingo. Achievements for finishing a level is essentially the game giving you a gold star for showing up. When can we get rid of those?
