Got thoroughly sucked into Portal 2. It’s a solid ride.
The “A-ha!” from the first game is dampened, and I think the challenges are easier, but these sorts of rewarding experiences are rare the first time around. Great sets, voices, story and bits of well designed humor throughout. It’s also nice to have a game with compact levels to make the investment seem not-so-overwhelming.
Excellent game, but if you are new to the series, start with the first.
