Summary: Just some classic game play. It may be just nostalgia talking but the game reminded me a bit of age of empires in you had to build houses, and mine gold and gather wood. But other than that it was an original strategy game.
Summary: I really enjoyed the game. My only complaint is that the early levels are a bit too easy, but everything else was done really well. The atmosphere is absolutely terrifying and keeps you on your toes even if you already know everything about the game. Ellen McClain is sinister yet funny as GLADOS.
Summary: Very good game. Firstly the graphics were great. Artwork was excellent, unique and had this "old sci fi" feel to it. Scenes were beautiful and items appropriately placed. I found the music choice, ambient sound, animation and effects pretty good too.
Summary: I found this game more enjoyable than the 1st one. Again it is a change from the normal HOG and you have to find various items and place them in their image. I liked the story and Igor (a Marty Feldman look-alike) was a fun character that livened up the game.
Summary: The Mystery of the Crystal Portal was my introduction to HO games, and initially I was a little confused with the costant opening of bubbles and skipping back and forth to the various rooms, but once I worked out what to do I enjoyed the genre, and an now an avid HOG fan.
Summary: Portal begins unlike any of the games I have played (considering I have played only four games, that's not saying much.) Waking up in a completely glass, bedchamber is slightly disorienting and begins the questions.
Summary: I loved this game. I have heard the phrase "The cake is a lie" and knew where it came from, but I just have never ¬played Portal. So I was really excited to finally play it! I really enjoyed the actual gameplay of Portal - a lot more than many first-person shooters that I've played.
Summary: I legitimately enjoyed Portal. The controls were simple, the objective not too difficult to catch on to, and overall it was a fairly cut-and-dried gaming experience, which I really appreciated. Despite its simplicity, however, Portal still maintained to be entertaining and stimulating.
Summary: The graphics on this game are absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with that more than the story, but the story is pretty good. Another one where you have to run to different rooms/locations (which I love), and sometimes you have to put stuff together.
