Summary: I picked up this game as a deal of the week from BFG, and I enjoyed the game emensly for 3$. Now the question becomes will you enjoy it for full price. This game is a sequel to The Mystery of the Crystal Portal, and as such carries the same gameplay. Instead of being given a list of items to find, then recieving one or two useful items at the end of your search, you are given a task.
Summary: Crystal Portal: Beyond the Horizon isn't too bad.I haven't played the first one so I can't compare it. It's beautiful to look at, and searching for the hidden objects is reasonably challenging, but you don't really care much about the story or characters beyond being lead to the next scene. I dunno, maybe I've been playing these HOGs too much, but somehow I just didn't get excited about this one.
Summary: I rarely gripe about plot lines in HOGs but I really must protest. Here we have a young woman that was basically abandoned by her father, she then spends her life trying to find him based on the "loving" clues he so kindly left behind for her. In this edition of the Crystal Portal, she finally actually finds her wilfully errant or lost or totally clueless father and what is the very first thing he asks of her?
Summary: I loved the first one. The thing is,they kinda make you think there is more here than there is.The first is very short.I was let down by that.I have tried this one,I loved what I played,length is my only issue.
Summary: See PoodleBear's review. My exact feelings. I had to do about three+ tasks just to hand granny her glasses which were sitting right next to her. Way too many "pockets" in this game which turned into plain old busy work instead of fun.
Portal: An interesting challenge followed by death.
4 June 2010
Summary: Portal is shot in the style of a first person shooter but is really a puzzle solving game in which you progress though twenty different science lab test chambers in search of your free cake. The story line is simplistic but where computer games are concerned I think too simple is better than too convoluted and the humour defiantly makes up for any shortfall.
Summary: Portal is a very pretty (in a clinical sort of way) first-person action/puzzle game released in 2007. It has a good atmosphere and is very intriguing from the outset. It doesn't take long to get the hang of Portal as it is very simplistic and straight-forward with the only puzzles being how to overcome a challenging physical environment.
Pros: Excellent environment, graphics, atmosphere and innovation

Excerpt: Vous passerez des heures magiques à essayer d'avancer de portails en portails tout au long du jeu. Vous vous prendrez la tête aussi, mais c'est ça qui est bon! Le plus gros problème restant sa durée de vie très limitée (4h?), plus ou moins allongée avec les objectifs à décrocher. "The cake is a lie!
