If you liked the puzzles of Portal and the rusty old knight of FFIX (Steiner), then you should try Trine! The pretty fantasy action game is currently available for only ~$10 on Steam and even includes a co-op mode!
Trine is the tale of Wizard, Thief and a Knight who accidentally bind their soul in an artifact called Trine. You can only control 1 of the 3 heroes at a time and each characters has unique abilities that will help you to solve the puzzles.
The thief has a bow and a can use the grappling hook, the wizard can conjure boxes and planks and the knight is the meatshield and sword fighter of the trio.
