About This Game

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.

I will be brief: I downloaded demo and played for 5 minutes. Then I removed it, went to the store and bought Portal 1-2 bundle. That same f'n day - 16 of July, 2011. The consequences: 50+ hours, all challenges done and the place earned in my digital heart for ever.

The first Portal is for sure shorter, has less story and features than the sequel. Though it has something... the mistery, the charm, the feel of menace, elegant sci-fi scent and terrific GLaDOS who hasn't went over the top yet. Valve, put your sorry Dota 2 down and please make games like this.

But, if you insist... it's an ibrid shooterplatformpuzzlelogicsomething where the reasoning, the logic and the physic reign. Not enough? It's a nice and funny game. Not enough? At the end of the game they give you cake!

Italiano:

Ma dai... Hai Steam e non hai ancora giocato a Portal?? Sei un pazzo. Non dovresti nemmeno aver bisogno di ragioni per comprarlo. Ma se proprio ne vuoi, è un ibrido shooterplatformpuzzlelogicqualcosa in cui il ragionamento, la logica e la fisica la fanno da padrona. Non basta? E' un gioco simpatico e divertente. Non basta? Alla fine del gioco ti danno una torta.

Everything that you've heard about 'Portal' is true. Well, if you've heard nothing but great things about it, that is. Because this is easily one of the greatest puzzle games to ever be created. Hell, it may even be one of the greatest games created, period. It's like 'Half Life 2' but on crack! You thought crack was bad for you, didn't you? Well it turns out that crack is good when combined with elements of puzzle solving and first person shooters.

'Portal' may be short, but it's pretty damn cheap too. And when you take into consideration the difficulty of the added challenges after you've completed the story, it should take a decent amount of time to complete.

Nevertheless, it's refreshing to see a first person 'shooter' without bullets and if you haven't picked this game up that's something that you should probably be doing right about now.
