Portal 2: One of best games for PS3.
Fantastic game. Takes everything great from the original Portal game from 2007, expands it, and makes it better. More characters, expanded (and interesting) story. more challenges, more game mechanics, and just a much longer game in terms of play time overall. It will help with perspective of the story and understanding the game mechanics, but you don't need to know anything about the first game (or have played it), to enjoy this, by the way.
The game superficially looks like a first person shooter game, but its actually a physics-based puzzle game with a unique in game mechanic. Although there are a few points where having some skill with a controller is necessary, there aren't many, and the game is much more conceptual/cerebral than "reflex based". Also game is effectively rated "G". No gore, graphic violence, sexual content, etc. Small kids won't be able to play it (puzzles too hard for them) but they might enjoy watching it. Has a two player co-operative mode that in and of itself is a pretty great game too.
Unfortunately, puzzle-based nature of the game means that replay value isn't high, but this is seriously one of the best games out there for PS3, one that adults and kids can enjoy. Game itself won at least half a dozen awards and other industry honors. If you're thinking about this. . .just buy it.Read full review
