The second Portal game this time around receives an E 10+ rating for fantasy and mild violence. But that isn’t all as the official rating summary below reveals some gameplay details about the upcoming puzzle game sequel. I don’t really think a spoiler warning is needed here. The description of the gameplay elements are more like a treat rather than a spoiler. Expect Portal 2 to hit store shelves April 19th for the PS3, 360, PC, and Mac.

“This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Chell, a human who is trapped in a scientific testing facility. From a first-person perspective, players solve numerous physical puzzles as they navigate through post-apocalyptic environments. Players use a ‘portal gun’ to open transportation gateways. Throughout the game, players must avoid hazards such as stationary gun turrets, toxic substances, poisonous gas, and giant pistons; some sequences are accompanied by realistic gunfire. Robot droids can also be destroyed; for example, in one boss battle, players must defeat a robot by throwing small bombs. The words ‘damn’ and ‘hell’ can be heard in the dialogue.”

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
