Though I had a YouTube moment overall I thought the game was easier than Portal 1, which did get frustrating at times.
I also read something somewhere where Valve said they wanted to game to be a little easier. They said they did some research and found a lot of people didn't finish Portal 1 because of one area that was frustratingly challenging.
I think I know the area they were talking about - a high jump area where creating portals was near impossible because of location and height. It was near the end. If it's the one area I'm thinking of, yeah, it nearly drove me to quit. Luckily I figured it out..... after about 50 tries (no YouTube
) and finished the game.
Compared to that, Portal 2 is easy
