Portal 2: The Official Guide

Your Portal to Completion

Every Future Press guide is designed to maximise the gaming experience—regardless of the player's skill. In the case of Portal 2, this is a difficult task: only those who can solve the test chambers will get to feel that true sense of accomplishment. If players look up the solution in a book or even watch it as a movie on YouTube, then they'll bypass this feeling completely.

This is why our Portal 2 guide follows a new concept: the solution will only give away as much as the player wants to know, no less, and no more. Thanks to a multi-layered walkthrough consisting of different levels of information, the official Portal 2 guide lets players decide for themselves how much help they receive. From just a small hint right up to a complete solution—everything is there. This guarantees a maximised gaming experience, just as you would expect from a Future Press guide.
