Summary: Even though it give me motion sickness (not kidding!) I so love this game. Everything about it is perfectly done; it's creepy and hilarious and tricky and thoroughly enjoyable. Wish I could play it for the first time again!
Summary: This game is exceptional, but make sure you understand what it is before buying it. Portal is a puzzle game. Your character is being evaluated by Aperture through a series of tests (obstacle course style) that determine your fitness. A female voice (the artificial intelligence GLaDOS) guides you from room to room. Early on, you receive a portal gun that enables you to create two portals (an entrance portal and an exit) in each room.
Summary: Portal is so good Amazon should let me give it 10 stars. The game is amazing visually and the mechanics are revolutionary. The game has a great storyline that will have you laughing the whole time. Portal in my opinion is the best game has ever produced by Valve. The puzzles become increasingly difficult but they are all solvable. When I got the game I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed this awesome game and would definitely recommend it.
Summary: Fun puzzle game with a unique twist: you get to create portals to get through seemingly impossible obstacle courses. There is an intriguing story line (after all, you're a test subject?) and an unforgettable antagonist, the ever witty, evil GlaDOS who is there to celebrate your failure.
Summary: Portal is an awesome puzzle game but the only thing about is that it is VERY SHORT. My 13 year old son played it fir the first time, and beat it within 1 and half to 2 hours. Great game, worth the $10.00 that you can get it for at the Steam app. But VERY SHORT. He would rather have gotten Portal 2, which I would recommend.
Summary: Valve has always been a touch mysterious. After the game changing first person shooter Half Life, a sequel was released in as part of the Orange Box in 2007. Included in the package was the co-op classic Team Fortress 2 and a silly little throw in game called Portal. With unique gameplay and a fantastically snarky vocal companion, Portal became a cult phenomenon. Portal drops you into the shoes of Chell, a test subject in the mysterious Aperture laboratories.
