Summary: Portal Charming and Challenging Portal is easily one of the most charming games ive played period As you make your way through the game solving increasingly difficult puzzles, your progress is being monitored by an unknown character that will effortlessly make you laugh, Playing portal just to hear...
Summary: I never got the Orange Box (nor do I want to) so I was glad when this was released on XBLA as it was the only title I was interested in. Portal is just a truly great, funny, imaginative and unique game that really does add something fresh to the gaming market.
Summary: Compared to Portal 2, this game is extremely short, easy (to figure out, but tedious to complete some levels) and just plain sort of boring. I found the voice of the computer in this first game to be very annoying. Portal 2, however, is awesome.
Summary: I've played the PC version using the Steam game engine. I'll have to say the navigation and controls are more fluid with the mouse on the PC version, but it's still an awesome game on the Xbox. I love Portal because it makes you think before you play.
Summary: Portal has won many awards since its launch in 2007, and when you play it, you'll agree that it deserves them. It's ingenious and compelling, a masterpiece easily at home in an all-time greatest games hall of fame list.
Summary: The stand-alone arcade version of Portal is a terrific little game and well worth the modest cost. If you've got the Orange Box retail game, skip this. But if not, or if you absolutely LOVED it in OB and want to get the extra challenges, go for it.
Summary: If you've already played this game in "The Orange Box", don't buy this game. It's the same game other than 14 easy challenge rooms. If you never bought "The Orange Box" and wondered about "Portal"... then buy "The Orange Box". You'll get 4 other amazing games for an extra $30.
Summary: I'm mostly posting this to respond to Perse Pappa's comment. This game was originally released as part of The Orange Box, next to Half-Life 2 and Team Fortress 2, although this is much added content that was not included with that release. It is a game deserving of a full release in and of itself.
