What Gamespot Users have to say about Portal

    They say the cake is a lie; I argue otherwise.

    I'm gonna go ahead and make a harebrained statement: The cake referenced in the popular Internet meme, and line from Portal, "the cake is a lie," isn't actually a lie; rather, that cake is Portal itself. My basis? Like c... Read Full Review

    I'm not sure why everyone likes this game, but I don't.

    There is just so much hype about Portal, about Half life, about Valve in general... Honestly, I never understood what's so special about them. I'll admit I've never played half life 2, I've only played the first one, so ... Read Full Review

    Innovative gameplay dynamics make this game an unforgettable experience.

    I have heard about Portal before, but never had the chance to play it until everything was buzzing about Portal 2. And I was like, "Oh crap. Now I HAVE to play Portal." Believe me when I say that that single momentary ex... Read Full Review

    Portal is in the hang of being a success, but didn't quite reach what it could of been.

    Portal, a simple edged game using advanced game mechanics. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean it's the top-dog of the gaming era. Lets advanced to the basics. + Mechanics + Box cover - Story - Length of game. ... Read Full Review

    Is the cake really a lie?

    Portal is one of those games where you have to play more than once to understand the game. As the game begins, you start in this test chamber place. As you continue during the game, the game gets more crazy and much much... Read Full Review

    Portal is pure Valve goodness, but hardly worthy of its Half-Life legacy.

    You've seen Black Mesa. You've worn an environment suit. You know how cool quantum theory really is. So when Valve says they're going to give you more adventure, epic expectations are not entirely unreasonable. When ... Read Full Review

    Even if it's overrated, it's still a great little game.

    I got The Orange Box two years ago and had ignored Portal all this time. Big mistake, because it turned out to be the best game of this box for me. I'm not a fan of Half-Life 2. I would be, if it didn't have the disgusti... Read Full Review
