Rated 5 out of 5 by marvin42 Best game from Valve so far!
This game is incredibly witty and has some of the most hilarious dark humor I have seen in a game! The plot has some pretty cool twists and new interesting characters. Most importantly, however were the puzzles, which were all very well designed and challenged you enough to be difficult, but not impossible. I am yet to play the co-op portion, but from what i can tell your robots are customizable and more portal tests will be ready for download later this year! Great game once again Valve!

Portal is by far one of the best games of 2011. It's challenging, it's fun, and it has a great story with great characters and humor that will keep you laughing all the way through. This game fortunately is friendly with a lot of PCs, so buying this version shouldn't be a hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kilad Fun and Hilarious.
Had the game now for over a week and love playing it. Courses are various in difficulty. Most are fairly decent, some are pretty interesting. The Multi player mode is my fav. I play for hours with my GF and have a blast. You must work as a team. Either split screen or with another online gamer. There is NO WAY to finish the game as a single player on the mulitplayer option. The Computer comments will keep you in stitches. LOL... Quality game in all aspects. A definate addition to your game console. Lots of fun.

Should have put on the game box that the content has to be downloaded (10 Gb). It might be fun, but I couldn't tell you. After 6 hours of downloading on a DSL line the Steam installer keeps flipping between 7 and 9 hours left. THE LAST TIME I BUY A STEAM RELATED GAME!!!

I got portal 1 for free last year sometime as part as a steam sale that was going on. A buddy at work told me about it. I had my old computer back then, so I played a few levels, a little choppy on my machine, I got confused a little, and put it down. Well, as part as steams winter sale 2011, I bought one and two for $8, and gave it another shot since I was now on a new build machine.
Portal 1 felt like a whole new game, and I was enjoying so much more. I fell in love quick with this game. I beat portal 1, and played some advanced chambers, and after a week or two, I moved on to portal 2. Right off the bat, Portal 2 was very unique and quite different than the first one. You still did test chambers, but the graphics are way way way boosted in portal 2. After you think you've beat the game, it just kept going. Portal 2 not only kept you inside cool test chambers, but at a certain point in the game, you escape just like you did in Portal 1, but it's very different, not only do you escape, but escaping just brings you deeper, and deeper down into the facility until you hit bottom, and have to work your way back to the surface. I beat the game, loved it, and I am back playing my second time. I actually just tabbed out of the game to write this. Do yourself a favor, and buy this game. Has decent replay value, and it's a rare type of game that just playing it alone, makes you feel like you're doing something very different. Buy This Game!!!
