Lt Shaffer and I just finished some coop. Great game and some crazy mind boggling puzzles. I'd have to say that this game is well worth the $45 I paid for it.

bingo. Maybe I should have just said "lots of loading" rather than "long load times"

Btw, I have 8GB of DDR3. No problems with memory here.

+10000

The Co-op side alone was worth $60 to me after playing through it


I was ROFL half the time...funny in other games dieing makes you frustrated but in Portal 2 it just makes you want to try again and again until you solve it.

That was a Great Game Six.. i thought it was Awesome that we helped each other out on some puzzles that stumped one of us while the other found the solution the very core of Coop play...

Agreed. The one test "outside the box" where we had to catch the ball really ticked me off. I came real close to marking that one "impossible" but Shaffer figured that one out. Also, the dialouge and the many, many deaths trying to figure the tests out really made me LOL. It was really funny when you dance in front of the cameras and Glados makes some "insulting" comment at you. Hilarious.

Valve really made the "ping tool" and partner view extremely useful, definitely the best co-op game I've ever played. Hope that some DLC comes out for co-op, I'll definitely be purchasing that. The only thing that would make it perfect is that my 360 only buddies could play co-op with me. I don't know anyone that uses their PS3 as their main console.

Have people found multiple solutions to Portal 2's puzzles? I'm finding there are not many (if any) alternate solutions to the puzzles...

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a puzzle?

I finally finished all of the co-op levels and all single player achievements. I don't normally chase achievements, but in this games it just makes the puzzles that much harder so it is a lot of fun. Only 4 achievements left with 2 of them being very easy to do.

i dont think he cheats, he just finds an alternate solution, so if a puzzle is meant to be, generally, solved; he still solves it, right?
