Portal 2 multiplayer gameplay detailed

  1. Along with expanding on the refreshing single-player gameplay that originally captivated gamers, Portal 2 will introduce a multi-player element. The much-anticipated puzzle shooter will come with entirely separate levels designed for co-operative action, which puts players in control of "infinitely respawning robots," according to the guys at Joystiq, who got their hands on a preview build at E3.

    The start was definitely not in game. Unless valve managed to get their engine up to par with today's graphics standards which they have failed to do since episode 1. If so I congratulate them.
  5. i dont understand why portal 2 is so much anticipated. Portal 1 was alright, but wasn't that big of a hit. Is it because it is the only new valve game in the near future?

    The original Portal was very popular, Guest. It was arguably the most popular game in The Orange Box and that says a lot considering the fact that it was an independent student project (if I remember correctly, anyway). The sequel is backed by one of today's most prominent game developers so it has tons of potential to build on something that was already well received.

    It would be interesting to see that valve managed to get source looking that beautiful.

    For some in-game videos check out http://www.gametrailers.com/game/portal-2/12821. The new puzzles look pretty intense but I am a bit nervous about multiplayer, it's either gonna be awesome or frustrating imo.

    It's one of those love/hate kinda games. I have a few friends who just couldn't stand the game while others loved it to no end. Whatever floats your boat I guess.
