Portal

Gaming Evolution
10 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The admittedly brief length of the main game, combined with the white, sterile labyrinth setting, and the fact that the player only has one gun throughout the entire game, makes Portal into a sublime minimalist experience.

Adventure Classic Gaming

  • Excerpt: Portal was inspired by a student game project named Narbacular Drop that was created in 2005 by a team of students at the DigiPen Institute of Technology. That game attempted to combine the gameplay style of first-person shooters with physics based puzzle elements.

  • Excerpt: Barmy computers with a penchant for destruction are not an original concept in video games.  Many gamers will fondly remember taking on the psychopathic and sadistic SHODAN in System Shock and its excellent sequel.

  • Conclusion: It's all too rare for a game to come along that makes you realize you've never played anything quite like it, but this is just such an occasion.

  • Summary: The three games that Valve Software offers in The Orange Box might just be one the best values around right now. Today I'm going to talk about one of the three high quality games and it's the most unique of the three. Portal is the name and getting to the cake is what you want to do in the game.

  • Conclusion: Just as Valve's Half-Life 2 is the moody loner to Halo 3 's high-school quarterback, Portal is smarter, cooler, funnier, and more sinister than almost any game this year.

  • Cons: Portal has been thoroughly playtested, and it offers several stumpers, but few moments that feel unfair: It's perfectly paced to teach you, lesson by lesson, how to think with portals.
