Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Allows for harmless trolling
While Portal 2 requires focus and logic, it does not punish players for causing a bit of mischief. The instant re-spawn system means trolling your friend will affect almost nothing in the game. Except maybe your friendship.
Pro Tools that improve teamwork
In a game that requires prefect timing and teamwork, Portal 2 features many tools to facilitate teamwork. One of the most helpful is a 3 second countdown timer that can be initiated and shown to both players to insure you launch that portal or jump at the perfect time. In addition, there is a marker that you can place on certain objects for your teammate to see as well as a setting that shows your partners view super-imposed on the corner of your screen.
Pro Hundreds of hours of user-generated content
The game has 60.000+ co-op items created by users through the Steam Workshop as well as mods. As it's user-generated content, the quality and size is highly varied. It includes everything from basic one-off chambers to full-fledged expansions with high-quality stories, voice-overs and new gameplay elements, like Mel.
Pro Unique 2 player online co-op campaign
In Portal 2, co-op is a completely different set of puzzles than the single player campaign. Almost all puzzles require a high level of teamwork that will leave you feeling proud of what you have accomplished.
Con Main co-op campaign is short
The co-op campaign in Portal 2 is about 4 hours long for experienced players, meaning it could be beaten in a weekend. With almost zero replayability this makes the game feel incredibly short. Luckily, there's hundreds of hours of user-generated content available.
Con Steep learning curve
Although the single player campaign features a gradual learning curve, co-op gives no mercy. The puzzles start off hard and only get harder. It is very recommended that you play through single player first if your are not familiar with Portals mechanics.
