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.

The greatest puzzle game there is

I'm usually not a fan of puzzle games, but I fell completely in love with this game. It was a unique experience, with a great storyline and plenty of humor mixed in with it. It's also got what may be the most quoted line in any video game, "The cake is a lie" This is a game everyone needs to play.

Not what you would expect.

Going into Portal, you would just simply think of it as a puzzle game with physics based portals and some fun puzzles. What you get is some incredibly black humor, well-written plot and some of the most subtle story telling you'll ever see in video games. This is a near-perfect game in every way and almost nothing wrong with it. It's hilarious, it's dark, it's intelligent, and has wonderful portal-based puzzles that will make you want to punch a hole through your computer screen. If I problem with the game, it would be how short it is. It can be beaten within 2-4 hours. But for $10 dollars, who can complain? You need to play this game. If you haven't there is something wrong with you.

What a classic!

Now, I could go on all day about how this game is amazing, and how it has great mechanics, and it's so unique which are all true, but this game does have one problem; it's very short. If you know what you're doing, you could probably beat it in about an hour. I've always found that annoying, but it is still a great game. When I first saw the ads for this game, my mind was blown! The idea of portal is just so fun! When I finally played it, I was not disappointed. the developers did a great job of making the game feel and look real. I hope you enjoy it.

A great puzzle game with an interesting mystery

phoenixwarrior0 | June 4, 2015 | See all phoenixwarrior0's reviews »

Portal is still a fun game to play, the puzzles can be quite challenging as you do, as the game states, have to 'think with portals'. The in-game commentary is also very funny as slowly throughout the game, GLADOS becomes more condescending to you. Slowly throughout the game, you may find secrets and hidden rooms showing the facility you're in may not be all it seems to be. You will also find yourself asking, 'Why can't I eat the cake?'

Different type of puzzler

Shaide | May 10, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »

This game is mind blowing. Seriously, I'm not even that far and my brain is hurting. This is a puzzle game unlike others before it. The idea is to make your way from point A, to point B. However to do this, you use a gun which can open up a "Portal", which is basically a hole ripped in space leading to different locations of the room. Often times you can pop out of a portal, just in time to see yourself running in. The idea is simple, but the rooms get progressively difficult, and no matter how good at puzzles you are, there is going to be occasions that require you to sit and ponder while you wear your thinking cap. A must own for those who like to push their minds to the limit.
