Summary

Do not get the Windows version. Portal 2 on PC crashes a lot.

The Good

Puzzles are intuitive and don't take long to solve. I've always been the one to complain about puzzle games being too difficult, and I have no complaint here. I can solve these.

The Bad

Anything with "orange" and "box" should be enjoyed on the Xbox 360 console. Portal 2 has the "orange door" so it naturally goes against the PC platform. OK I was kidding but seriously, you should get the X360 version instead. If you don't own a Xbox 360 just don't bother. Portal 2 for Windows crashes all the time. Just Google "portal 2 crash" and you'll see. Some of these can be fixed by the Steam utility, some of these can be fixed in some other ways, but mostly, it's hard to know for sure how well your Windows system will run this game.

The writing is horrible. Pretending to be funny, while not funny at all. The dialog is bad.

You can create orange doors on certain surfaces, but not on other surfaces. Feels like the rules are too arbitrary.

The Bottom Line

Only recommended for puzzle game fans.
