    From someone that didn't play the Orange Box version.

    Rated on November 04, 2008 by Autolycus

    So I had an idea what portal was, and I knew that they used the portals that are seen in Prey and I knew it was a puzzle game. But from there, is where the adventure starts. I don't want to ruin...

    You have to be crazy to refuse to play this mind-blowing puzzle/maze game. Heck you even get cake at the end!

    .....or do you? Portal is an amazing first-person puzzle game that challenges its players to think, and think wisely. Many of the challenges the Aperture Science Lab presents you can be very mind-b...

    A very unique experience - Portal is a winner!

    Rated on September 04, 2010 by EPIKIZIK

    (Spoilers in this review, read with caution) Portal is just an outstanding game. It offers clever writing, great gameplay, and a funny, though disturbing [in a good way] sense of humor. I did...

    Portal makes it to XBLA! And about time too bringing the best in puzzle gaes and revolutionary design.

    One of my first games for my 360 was the orange box. To be honest im not a big half life fan (sounds silly coming from me who loves FPS games) but I just enjoy other fps games more. So I only really g...

    If you love the original Portal gameplay then by all means get Still Alive for additional levels.

    Rated on February 04, 2009 by 1010111

    I absolutely loved Portal when I started up on The Orange Box and once I finished the game I wanted a lot more of where that came from. So when Still Alive was announced it wasn't a tough choice to bu...

    I was first told about this game years ago when The Orange Box first came out. There was a lot of hype surrounding it, but I just didn't get drawn to it, so i just left it. Now, the ol hype machine is...
