About the 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.

Portal is a first person action game of logic and strategy developed by Valve in 2007 and released in a package called The Orange Box .

The player wakes up in a glass room , the Aperture Science development center, where he is subjected to a series of experiments until ...... well I will not spoil the game ....
Each experiment is guided by Glados voice, the mainframe development center computer. Glados is one of the best virtual characters in recent years. That computer has more personality than many humans from other games.

Throughout the game the player acquires a portal gun. This gun allows you to create portals, to enter and exit portals in order to go forward in the game, which requires solving logic puzzles to advance. You will acquire a good sense of physics, position and movement.

The game is a marvel of Valves creativity. Many would prefer to kill zombies in left 4 dead , but personally, I think games like Portal are those who write history. The game lasts a few hours and when it finishes, with music and lyrics, it makes you want to stand and applaud. No other game in recent years has touched me so much when it ended. It is an ode to creativity.

Its sequel , Portal 2, expands the concept of the game and makes it much longer, making it a standalone game. The Portal 2 was named Game of the Year in 2011 for various publications.

The game was released for Windows PC , PS3 and XBOX 360 before being ported to MAC OSX.

Now that I've finished the review I want my cake ! .

Portal es un videojuego de lógica y estrategia en primera persona desarrollado por Valve en 2007 y lanzado en un paquete llamado Orange Box.

El jugador despierta en una sala de cristal, el centro de desarrollo de Aperture Science, donde es sometido a una serie de experimentos hasta que …… no les voy a arruinar el juego....
En cada experimento lo va guiando una voz, que es Glados, la computadora central del centro de desarrollo. Glados es uno de los mejores personajes virtuales de los últimos años. Esta computadora tiene más personalidad que muchos humanos de otros juegos.

A lo largo del juego el jugador adquiere una pistola de portales. Esta pistola de portales le permite generar portales para entrar y salir por donde le es posible e ir avanzando en el juego, que requiere resolver acertijos lógicos para seguir adelante. Para ello hay que adquirir un buen sentido de la física, la posición y el movimiento.

El juego es una maravilla de la creatividad de Valve. Quizas muchos prefieran matar zombies como en el left 4 dead, pero personalmente creo que juegos como el Portal son los que escriben la historia. Finalmente al terminar en unas pocas horas, con musica y letra, dan ganas de pararse y aplaudir. Ningun juego posterior a portal me emocionó tanto. Es una oda a la creatividad.

Su secuela, el Portal 2 amplía el concepto del juego y lo hace mucho más largo, convirtiéndolo en un juego independiente. El Portal 2 fue nombrado Juego del Año en 2011 por diversas publicaciones.

El juego se lanzó para PC bajo Windows, PS3 y XBOX 360 para luego ser portado a MAC OSX.

Ahora que terminé el review quiero mi torta!.

Portal is one of the many great games made by Valve. Its a fun little puzzle game and has extra puzzles for people that like hard stuff.

Pro:
-Fun puzzles.
-Great and humorous story.
-Extra hard puzzle chambers and challenges.
-Very fun to think with portals

Cons:
-Short
-Some of the puzzle solutions are so obvious its hard to find the solution.

I recommend turning AA up to the max while playing.

I give this game a 9/10. Its one of my favorite games.

GET THIS GAME NOW, I DEMAND YOU!! Oh, and be sure to play this game BEFORE you play Portal 2, although you CAN play Portal 2 without playing Portal and still understand the storyline, but the storyline is more understandable when you play Portal BEFORE playing Portal 2. If you understood that...

Personal Rating: "Classic - Must buy"
Traditional Rating: 9/10
Platform: PC
Genre: First Person Puzzle Adventure

Four years on and Portal is still just as enjoyable as the first time it was played. This is the game that introduced us to Chell and super-computer GlaDOS, the villain with a stinging sense of humor. The highlight of the Orange Box that released in 2007, Portal went on to win many GOTY awards and deservingly so. Things only got better when the full sequel released in 2012 to just as much acclaim and Game of Year industry awards.

Since Portal was more of a concept game - a game set within the confines of the Half-Life universe - it's not a particularly long one. I believe Valve was really testing the waters with this title to see how such a first person puzzler would do in the fickle market that is gaming. It plays splendidly and is incredibly funny - particularly Ellen McClain who takes on voice responsibilities for GlaDOS.

Everything from the script to the puzzle gameplay is utterly perfect and it spawned the classic meme "The cake is a lie" that is still just still as prevailent in Gaming Popular Culture today as it was back in 2007. It closes out with one of the most hysterical closing theme songs you are likely to ever hear which simply put - is the cherry on top of what is already a very delicious sundae. Highly recommended you purchase this in the bundle deal (which includes both Portal and Portal 2) if you haven't had the chance to play either yet. You can also browse my reviews for the review to Portal 2 which earned a 9.5/10 from me in 2012.

One of the best deals you can find, very cheap.
The concept is great and really fun, using the portal gun to ceate portals and solve puzzles in the form of tester chambers while surprisingly telling an interesting story.

Great voice acting from Glados and she is what makes the game so great, you hear her throughout the game and her dialog is really funny.

As fun as it is, the game can be finished in just over an hour (Assuming you look out for secrets) and the story is never really found challenging but I recommend you check it out. After the main story there are challenge chambers that will keep you busy.

The Cake is a Lie.
I recommend this to anyone and give it a rating of 9/10
