Portal™ is a new single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay.

The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life® 2's Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation.

Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.

Short, sweet, and almost perfect

Man, who could've seen this one coming? The tiny little puzzle game squeezed in among the heavy hitters of Half Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 became the star of the package and has endured while Half Life has withered away, and Team Fortress 2 has leaned in hard to embracing the insanity and hats. You start slow, as in any good puzzle game, and just keep ramping up. Nothing outstays its welcome, because by the time something is starting to grow stale, you're already on to the next thing. Sure, maybe the ending gameplay is just so-so, but it's still fun, start to finish.

What can be said about Portal that hasn't been said a thousand times; the gameplay is probably the most innovative of the generation, the story is engaging and witty, and the graphics are top-notch (for a 2007 game) and still hold up today. The only real compaint is the very short nature of the game; an average player could finish it in three hours, though I guarantee it will be some of the best moments you've ever spent gaming. Journey through one of the greatest and most original of Valve games, and get ready to play a game that defined this generation of gaming.

Brilliant Game

Portal is definitely in my top 5 all time favorite games. This innovative first person puzzle platformer took a bold step with new mechanics and an engaging story. The puzzles are genius. They are challenging, yet not overly hard to where you'd ragequit. They feel rewarding to complete, and the main antagonist, GLaDOS, is a humorous robot who enjoys torturing you between your test chambers. I mean, what's better than fun puzzles and a psychotic robot? Get this game. It's an experience no gamer should be without. It is short, but well worth every penny. Advanced maps and challenges will keep you occupied for many hours after the main story.

This game is amazing for anyone who enjoys puzzles and likes a good laugh. Portal has perfectly mixed comedy with thought. The game is hilarious and will have you busting a gut while also hurting your brain with puzzle rooms that give you a great feeling when you're finally able to figure it out and advance to the next mind bending room. Gameplay is awesome, characters are awesome and it's just so different than anything else that's been made. Definitely recommend this game.

If the answer is no, then hurry up and get to it! This is one of the most iconic games in the history of both FPS and strategy. This is a fun game, intense, makes you think and reason a lot, and it also has an amazing backstory which gets to you straight away. It can be hard, but the fun is almost limitless. Also, the community is huge, so be a part of it, you know you want to.
