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.

I played this game because it was in the orange box. I thought it would be nothing special, but I was so very wrong. Its a rather simple and short game, but its puzzles are fantastic. The game really allows you to tackle the obstacles in any way you want. Sure, the game designer had a certain method that they try to lay out, but they dont force you to go that route. The humor is very good, and has had a huge impact on gaming culture. When this is bundled with Portal 2, just get it.

Portal is the first game from the series, it shows how valve can innovate on creating different games,not only first person shooters like Half-Life or Counter Strike,this time it is a game based on solving puzzles using portals,the textures looks kinda dirt in some chambers and the protagonist model isn't great, but in Portal 2 valve fixed it, even with these issues, this game is a must buy, test your mind, have some fun, and buy Portal 2 for more fun.
Play this game (but don't expect Portal 2)superhomosapien | Sept. 5, 2015 | See all superhomosapien's reviews »
As someone who played Portal 2 first, Portal was a bit of a surprise. First off, its much harder than its older sister, which was I enjoyed. If you struggled through 2, however, expect to be frustrated. Portal 2 stood out to me because it was one of the games that nailed humor on a level above just slapstick. While you can tell the Portal devs have a sense of humor, this game is not primarily funny. Don't expect as much from the plot. While Portal is certainly one of the greats, Portal 2 fans shouldn't get their expectations too high.
What to say about Portal?Valoo321 | Aug. 18, 2015 | See all Valoo321's reviews »
This game is iconic. If you haven't had the opportunity to play it yet, make sure you jump on any chance your wallet allows you. It's a fun and interesting puzzle with plenty of humour to keep you going if the puzzles get you stuck. The challenge of the game ramps up appropriately, as it slowly introduces one new obstacle in one room, then two in the next, then three... until the end you're balancing all sorts of different puzzles in just a great orchestra. Seriously, get this game as soon as you get the chance. If for nothing else than the writing and the humour, or if nothing else than the puzzles, it's got both in abundance. I can't think of anything that I would like changed.

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.
