Portal™ is a new single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay. The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life® 2’s Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation. Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.

Comment: I'm pretty much fascinated with this game. It really needs a brain to play this game. Need to think, and also to think always one step ahead. I love this game just because of that, I wouldn't matter at all about graphics if a game was based on this. Really good 10/10

Comment: Portal is a magnificent puzzle game. The titillating wrongness of every solution and the wonky thinking required to get there make you feel like a space-folding genius, and yet you'll almost never get stuck.

Comment: Portal is a 2007 first-person puzzle-platform video game developed by Valve Corporation. The game was released in a bundle package called The Orange Box for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 on October 9, 2007, and for the PlayStation 3 on December 11, 2007. The Windows version of the game is available for download separately through Valve's content delivery system Steam and was released as a standalone retail product on April 9, 2008. The game grips you by the wrist and leads you briskly past the befuddling basics of these rifts, straight to the good stuff. Within a few short levels you're using orthogonal portals to translate your gravitational potential into lateral velocity and flinging yourself exhilarating over turrets and lethal slime. By nudging you gently through rooms that cleverly lead your eye to the correct - yet patently impossible - solution, it swiftly teaches you a dazzling roster of lunatic tricks.Portal is a magnificent puzzle game. The titillating wrongness of every solution and the wonky thinking required to get there make you feel like a space-folding genius, and yet you'll almost never get stuck. Soon you've learnt so many weird ways of perverting the forces and spaces in any room that you can throw yourself through them, like a futuristic Prince of Persia with abilities more improbable and wondrous by far. The solutions eventually become more gymnastic - opening new portals mid-fling and plummeting back through those you've previously opened with pinpoint precision. But by then you're ready, and performing deliciously counter-logical mental inversions at breakneck speed is something to be relished. The atmosphere, meanwhile, grows thickly sinister. Your sing-song robot guide GLaDOS (you'll find out what it stands for) doesn't seem unduly invested in keeping you alive. Soon her own delusions creep into her instructions to you. "The weighted companion cube," she announces as you snatch up a box, "will not threaten to stab you and cannot, in fact, talk. If the weighted companion cube does talk, the Enrichment Centre urges you to disregard its advice." But as her coldly voiced lines become more murderous and surreal, they also get funnier. The writing is effortlessly sharp throughout, and with its single inhuman character Portal taps a thick vein of black, absurdist humour that becomes the game's propulsive force. You'll play faster just to hear the next beautifully unhinged line. The game escalates magnificently. The puzzles change nature, requiring you to beat the system with the tricks it taught you rather than jumping through hoops. And at the same time, the humour reaches fever pitch - GLaDOS becomes so brilliantly deranged that at times it's hard to stop yourself from laughing. Sadly, Portal is as short as it is sweet. It took us a little under two and a half hours. That's long enough for the story it tells, and it tells it well, but it's so damnably good that the craving sets in as soon as the satisfaction fades. Depending on gamer demand, Valve say they'll opt next for a straight sequel, a closer tie-in to the Half-Life games or some form of multiplayer. We just want more GLaDOS. Her lilting, darkly comic words of lethally unhelpful advice deserve a place in the annals of scary robo-speak, right beside "I can't do that, Dave" and "L-look at you, hacker." "If you begin to feel light-headed from thirst," GLaDOS chirps, "feel free to pass out."

Comment: In this game you play as Chell, the protagonist of the series (another mute character delivered by Valve). Welcome to the world of Aperture Science, a science facility where the game setting takes place. In the beginning you will wake up in a relaxation vault with sweet Muzak playing on radio by your side. On waking up an electronic voice of an AI name GLaDOS will greet you and tell you that you are a part of Aperture Science enrichment program and will carry out some tests for fun and learning. Shortly an Orange Portal will be deployed and you will walk out of relaxation chamber for further testing. GLaDOS then goes on to guide you through some test chambers to familiarize you with the concept of Portals and how to use them to get through the test chambers. The learning curve is fairly smooth. The concept of Portals is fairly simple. There are two portals at a time, walk in through and walk out of another. It's like walking in one door and walking out of another with an invisible passage between two doors. So in summray it's a great game.

Comment: I thought portal was an excellent puzzle game. There are a lot of easter eggs in this game. My only dislike with the game is the ending and the annoying robot voice (forgot its name).

The game doesn't require that much thinking but can become very difficult.

Comment: This is a fun PUZZLE game! If you are looking for a shooter, go somewhere else. If you like puzzles, this game is very, very fun.

Comment: for someone who grew up always fragging with quake and unreal this game is a delightful deversion and has intresting puzzles and great humor that will entertain but only for 4 hours though people are making lvls for it which should give the game last longer
