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. The story keeps get scarier and scarier the more you think about it. GLADOS actually scares you more in this one than the sequel.
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: 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: 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: 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. I mean, they're literally broken apart (although the pieces aren't far away).
Summary: The game is a blast to play, if you are into physics-based puzzles. I'm not going to describe it, because it's well-described elsewhere (Wikipedia, for instance). So the question comes down to, "Is it worth buying?" And the answer is a qualified yes. The game is short. Yes, really short. Compared to the typical puzzle game ("Myst", etc.), you blast through this in half the time (or less). But what is cut out is all the "envirnoment exploration".
Conclusion: 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: Hola a todos y todas gentes de la basta comunidad de Ciao!, luego quiero editar la opinion que por falta de tiempo puse un par de cosas que quiero modificar para mejorar su lectura, pero claro me tengo que ir con prisa de casa, así que a la noche me pongo manos a la obra y de paso me pongo a leer los comentarios que tengo aun pendientes los de ayer, jobar es que se me acumula el trabajo a más no poder, pero bueno empiezo con la opinión de una vez que yo solo me voy por...
