Description

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.

A puzzle game with portals

Briansmsk8er | Aug. 17, 2014 | See all Briansmsk8er's reviews »

Portal is a first person puzzle platformer made by Valve in 2007. It is highly addictive and fun. It get's you to think outside the box, by using portals to solve puzzles. The graphics are what you would expect from Valve games as it uses the same Source engine. The soundtrack is fun and the music is interesting. The gameplay is awesome and once I started playing I didn't put it down until I finished the game. All in all it's a very good game and I enjoyed playing it.

One of the best games I've played

As the title says, this is one of the best games I've played. A very interesting puzzle game in the one you'll have to spend a lot of time thinking before shooting your portal gun. Interesting physics and story. Nice level design and enjoyable experience. A bit short, though.

Thinking with portals

luxcaeruleus | July 27, 2014 | See all luxcaeruleus's reviews »

Portal is a Puzzle First Person game. In it, you play as a test subject named Chell and you must navigate through Aperture Science's Test labs using a portal gun. It's a really fun puzzle game since you could pop up from one place to another. The mechanic is simple, you just point your gun on a wall, then shoot. Then shoot another portal to connect them both. The gameplay is simple and fun too. You need to finish a series of tests conducted by the company's overseer AI, GLaDoS. The story is surprisingly good and funny. It has it's funny moments since GLaDoS interacts with you throughout the game. It's also aligned with the universe of half-life 2 (Aperture is Black Mesa's rival company). If you love puzzle games with a great atmosphere, then I highly recommend this game!

Who says videogames don't make you think?

Portal is an awesome game. Sure, it's short, but it's fun to play, and quite challenging. Portal's plot might not be one of the best ever made, but I still felt like getting to the end and see its outcome: You basically are a girl trapped in Aperture Science's test chambers, and there's an insane AI (GladOS) who makes you go through different tests. There are lots of jokes in the game, some of them are actually quite grim, yet funny. The main gameplay mechanics are physics. You have to solve puzzles using physics and portals. Some of them require a lot of thought, while some of them have really easy solutions that make you feel bad about yourself once you see how easy they were to get through. Portal's soundtrack, even though it's kind of hard to pay attention to, is quite good. And I think most player will remember the credits' song for quite a long time. Overall, I think this is a game everyone who hasn't tried it out should get as soon as possible, as well as its sequel.
