ooo.. GladOS is very very passive aggressive.
So she hasn't changed, then.

...Steam is saying I completed Single Player in four hours... I'm pretty sure it took me twice that long. I crashed once, which may have been why.

I think GlaDOS had a weaker performance this time around. I think the ending could have been done better, namely:

Why not give Chell control of her own escape? It would have been a few final puzzles at least.

A set of single player challenge maps would have been nice. Maybe there'll be added content.

I made a new Steam account for this game and so am friendless. Amusing!

Steam's time tracker gets wonky sometimes. It claims I beat Half-Life 2 in three hours which is, I think, impossible without cheating.

I'm a little disappointed the new song wasn't anywhere near as catchy as 'Still Alive'...

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
While not as catchy, I do think it is still a better song. Does a better job to capture the utter disgust Glados has with you that she doesn't even care if you are dead, just that you are gone.

Finished playing through the co-op campaign, earlier, and, without spoiling anything, I'll just say that it satisfied all of my complaints about the main game; primarily, that it was too short, and that the puzzles almost seemed too easy. Co-op easily answers both of those; it's nearly as long as the main campaign (40 test chambers, over 5 chapters!) and it assumes you've beaten the game already, as it introduces mechanics with no explanation, and uses them in downright crazy ways.

I think it's fairly easy to divide the single player segment into a few sections.

GladOS, Cave Johnson, Wheatley. :D

Wheatly drove me NUTS in a few spots.

Had to get Wolfy's help with one of the last test chambers, but went through the rest mostly smooth. I'd say that's probably a fair level of difficulty balanced by great humor and fun.

I think I'll have to put off the co-op for a while. Holy Week is crazy times at work. x.x

Working through the Co-op campaign with my roommate, and it's just as much fun as the single-player campaign.  I really like how the challenges require precise communication and teamwork in order to advance.  At first, we pretty much tried to sabotage each other whenever possible -- until we realized that if we kept it up, we'd be there all night.

Haven't beat the single-player yet, but I'm liking how the events are playing out so far (I'm currently in the Cave Johnson area).  I think my favorite bit so far was

The co-op was fun but it makes the replay value seem a little lacking. There's an achievement for taking a friend through it the first time (any volunteers? >_>) and grabbing whatever you missed, but after that, what is there?

A lot of the puzzles and achievements in this game require a bit of lateral thinking, but none of them require a terrible amount of agility. If you're stuck at any point thinking that you have to be ridiculously agile at some point, you need to rethink the puzzle - and you probably missed something.

It's a bit cruel in this regard, because ridiculous agility actually can work on some parts of puzzles. It just isn't ever actually needed.

One thing that will help for tests and achievements where agility helps is that you don't get reoriented while looking straight down or straight up when falling through portals. This can help you get your bearings while bouncing around, though this is mostly useful in the original Portal's advanced missions.

Also, I like the ending to Portal 2..especially the new song. :D...

...Really shows a certain character actually has a heart, if you look at it from the right perspective.
