There have been many complaints about the length of Portal 2 but, like many of the complaints leveled at the game, they're mostly unfounded. The single-player game can take six to 10 hours to play, and the co-op campaign is at least five hours long. This standalone campaign stars a duo of robots called Atlas and P-Body who have to work together to solve all the puzzles, each with his own Portal gun.

What's amazing about the co-op mode isn't that it exists and is a very good time—although both of those things are good news for gamers—it's that Valve has created a mode that gives you a bunch of innovative tools to work together. It works so well that voice chat is almost unnecessary.

Working together

It could have been a tricky thing to help your buddy know where and when to fire his portal gun, but the game gives you the ability to point to a place on a wall and place an icon there, drawing the attention of the other player. In a quick second you can place two temporary icons wherever you please, letting your buddy know exactly where to shoot his portals to get you where you need to go. This is done with the 'F' button on the PC, and it operates almost like a laser pointer when you're using the function. It's an effective tool for illustrating your strategy.

You can also set up a timer that counts down from three, allowing you to tell your robotic friend where and when to throw a switch or fire a portal. You will definitely need this function if you're trying to keep your timing in sync with another player.

There are also a series of emotes that you can use to communicate with the other player, and these can sometimes be more effective than standard voice chat. In fact, during one mission I found myself unable to make a jump, and after I failed a few times, my teammate hit a few buttons and I had to deal with the embarrassment of having his robotic avatar laugh at me before jumping in and showing me how it's done. It was a neat moment that showed how intuitive and expressive the controls can be.

Another nice touch is the ability to see through the eyes of the other player by holding down the TAB button on your keyboard. This gives you an idea of what they're seeing, where they are, and what they're thinking. This is important when you're both working on a solution to the puzzles presented to you. There is also sometimes the opportunity to destroy the other robot—and a certain disembodied voice may take some glee in just that sort of chaos—but destruction only means it takes a moment to respawn. The challenge is to move forward, not stay alive. Ah, the pleasures of being a robot!

My first time playing began with voice chat, but when the Ventrillo server failed, my friend and I found that the game gave us more than enough tools to communicate with each other without speaking, or even typing. Heck, we were able to give each respect for a job well done or mock each other for simple mistakes using the built-in emotes. The single-player game is fun, but there is something magical that happens when you and a friend begin to experiment with the portals and levels to try to find a solution to each puzzle. Teamwork is mandatory, and the level design is often brilliant.

This isn't the sort of multiplayer we're used to, and the replay value may be limited once you solve the included puzzles, but there is a lot to discover with a friend and there are many innovations that make co-op game play enjoyable. Yes, speaking to your friend as you play is worthwhile, but the game is smart enough to often make voice chat a secondary means of communication. For an online game, that's a pretty big deal.
