Obviously. This game is possibly the best I've ever played, and I've played a lot. The graphics are beautiful, the voice acting is perfect for every character, the dialogue is funny, and the gameplay is fresh and interesting. Portal had a huge hit on the gaming world when it was released in the Orange Box a few years ago, and it was praised for its interesting concept and gameplay. Now, there's a full-price and longer sequel out. The campaign was, for me, about three times the length of the original Portal's. There's also a co-op campaign for playing with a friend that took me about the same amount of time as Portal. Unfortunately, there's not much replay value beyond getting all the achievements but I still recommend the game, on the grounds that it's awesome. Hopefully Valve will release some free DLC for us. This game will alternate between making you feel like a genius and making you feel like an idiot; the former moments are worth the latter. The story itself, while a bit predictable as a whole, has some twists and turns that are impossible to anticipate and will leave you staring at your screen, smiling vaguely, saying "What." This game is a wonderful experience, and you should definitely buy it.
