It's great fun. Steve Merchant is awesome at the start. Prefer it over the first one so far, superb game.

Yup... the writing is awesome, and I love Merchant. I am surprised by how many full on loading screens there are, though.

One thing I've noticed about you is that you bitch more than a woman on her period.

Liking the feedback I'm hearing about this game. Not a must buy for me at all, but I'll likely pick it up on some uber-cheap steam sale some time later this year.

Yikes. I didn't notice that when I saved my game.

Great game so far. Graphics are superb, the storyline is amazing and the artwork . . . omfg. I love the artwork. Really makes me wanna go make some wallpapers and such. Can't wait to play more tonight.

Awesome game! Game looks and runs amazing for me. I don't know where the complaints that the PC wasn't the lead platform come from considering how bad the console versions look in comparison.

Idiots on Metracritic are slamming the game... I got what I payed for. $40 and a longer then the original game plus coop!

If anything this game proves that many PC Gamers are hypocrites. They complain that console gamers are stupid and get ripped off with DLC well thanks to PC Gamers valve made so much off the TF2 store that they implemented a weaker version in Portal 2.

well it's official that I will be staring at the game in the steam menu ready to play until Friday. I talked to my wife today at lunch and she pretty much has forbid me to play the game without her there and she gets back in town from work on friday.

We played through the first one with her helping solve the puzzles. She really enjoys those brain teasers and we had a lot of fun so I'm going to be good and not sneak through the game to figure the puzzles out ahead of time like I did for the first game.

I'm just a bit afraid that some 4 letter words of frustration may get involuntarily unleashed at the TV and she's not a fan of that
