Alright 80%

Portal - PC (Windows 10) - 1080p - 120 fps - Max Settings My Playthrough lasted 3 hours, divided roughly in 2 parts: - 90% for puzzle solving - 10% for loading elevators The Story is almost non existent and pretty straightforward: solve testing areas and try to escape. The portal gun, however, is a blast to use. If not for the clunky gameplay and repetitiveness, this would be a masterpiece. For future references: - Original concept - Good p... Read More

Positive points
- Very original concept
- Good puzzle design
- GLaDOS humorous monologues
- The Cake is NOT a Lie!
Negative points
- Game crashes when RTSS is turned on - Loading elevators get tedious over time - Gets repetitive towards the last testing chambers - Too quiet during puzzles - Some engine/physics clunkiness... Read More

Alright 80%

Portal is broken up into two parts. In the first part you have to solve puzzles in test chambers and in the second part you're trying to escape from the facility. For my first playthrough the first part didn't give me too much trouble, because the difficulty curve is very well done. However, during the second part I often didn't know how to progress. This is because the exits are often hard to find and because I'm used to modern games who don't a... Read More

Positive points
- Original concept
- Great puzzles
- Funny humour
Negative points
- Second half of the game will likely give you quite some trouble on your first playthrough.
- Short, but go play Portal 2 I guess.

Great 100%

Мы играем за подопытную, которой предстоит пройти 19 камер испытаний. Проходить мы будем эти камеры с помощью портальной пушки. Поначалу мы можем стрелять лишь одним порталом, но через несколько уровней нам дадут модифицированную версию пушки с двумя порталами. Игра находится во вселенной Half-Life и является спин-оффом, я надеялся найти тут отсылки к халве, но ничего не заметил, может во второй части будет хоть что-то. Единственной схожестью я м...

Great 100%

Portal is a contemporary version of Chaplin’s Modern Times. The main character is a woman stuck in the machine, but the contemporary machine is no longer constraining the individual through repetitive body movements in order to produce material goods. The contemporary machine plays with our emotions in order to create science. What kind of science? It is probably neuroscience. GLaDOS is not really testing a gun that makes portals. It is testing C... Read More

Positive points
GLaDOS is memorable
The atmosphere of tecnofobia is perfect
Makes you feel smarter
Negative points
Some people may find it too short
