The most recent update sees that most of the bugs residing in the game are fixed. Not to mention more compatibility with other platforms as well.
Portal 2 made its mark in the industry mainly because of its very interesting game mechanics. The ability to open a fifth-dimensional portal and find your way across a top-secret test facility is truly unique.
