Gaming Illustrated has posted a new review of Valve's recently released Portal 2 first person action puzzler. The game introduces a new cast of characters to the single player storyline, new puzzle elements, and a two player cooperative mode. Gaming Illustrated gave the game a score of 90%

From the review:

The storyline in Portal 2, without revealing too much, is fantastic. You get to learn the histories and backstories of the characters with the story picking up right where the original Portal left off. As far as graphics go, expect to be impressed. In fact, you will find that the detail throughout the game is rich and stays that way throughout, rather than great opening graphics followed by a so-so visual style after seen in many games these days. Even better, the storyline and gameplay are still enough that these great graphics take a backseat to all that is fantastic about Portal 2.

Like with its predecessor, one of the best things about Portal 2 is the puzzles. You will find that the puzzles are still difficult and yet deceptively simple. The solutions always make complete sense, even if they do lead you to have one of those moments where you wonder how in the world you didnít figure it out sooner. Compared to many games, where puzzles require solutions that can take hours of nonsensical guessing, logic prevails here, which is certainly something that appeals to gamers looking for a mental challenge rather than an exercise in frustration.
