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. Although the cut scenes had small & simple animation on them, I thought they were nicely crafted. Have played the 1st game and thought this one was just as good. Gameplay was easy and puzzles simple to solve.
Summary: This is one clever game. The concept is simple but brilliant: you're trapped in the labs of Aperture Science and you have to get out. To assist you you're given a portal gun. The gun opens doorways in almost any surface. Once you have full control of the gun you can create blue and amber portals. Step into the blue one and you emerge from the amber one, step into the amber one and you emerge from the blue one.
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. The story is lovely and the game has an excellent length. It also has little red balls to find in each area that pretty up the game frame. Cute.
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. However, I am NOT a horror fan and with so many HO games climbing on that train, or the childish witch/fairytale stories/dialogue that make me want to just hurry up and skip to the next scene, I am...
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. From the moment Portal begins, the questions begin rattling through the mind of the player. There is no other person with you or around the only companionship there is is a dissociated computer voice and a "companion cube.
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. I especially liked the puzzle aspect of the game and giving it context with the framework of the story gave me motivation to play it.
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: A very pretty game within a fantasy setting, making for an interesting story. Not overly difficult but enough challenge to keep things interesting. Definitely one of the better hidden object games I've played and would certainly recommend!
Summary: I am a huge fan of FPS, from Doom to Modern Warfare and let me tell you that this game is on the next level! The only time I can remember feeling this excited just to think about playing a video game was back in the Nintendo days of Mario Bro 3! I must of been a kid and now I find myself after just ONCE playing the game for 5 plus hours thinking (wishing) I was plyaing this game again!
