There's re playability in it and even on the 15-20 hours i'll spend passing it on single player and co-op i think it's not a bad purchase. However it's really not a bad idea to just hire it out for a week or a few nights at a time and go through the campaign. One major problem this Portal has is that there's no way to play back through the test chambers without playing the campaign which is a shame because that was what kept me coming back to the first one.
I've considered taking it back and getting the full refund within the week but i think i'll just keep it and aim to get all the achievements on a game for once and maybe convince a mate or two to play through the co-op with me. Hopefully while i do that they release some DLC/patch that will allow you to do each test chamber individually etc.
