Portal review

Posted by Allen Howard on January 28, 2012 at 6:20 PM

A few months ago, Steam offered Portal as a freegame.  My brother downloaded it and started playing.  He told me that it was a great game, but I never downloaded it. Regretting it later, I persuaded my brother to play it on his account.

                Portal is a puzzlegame where the player must make portal between two places to follow the objective.  It is a great game to challenge the brain.  On the first levels, it starts off easy as a tutorial, but as the levels go on, it gets harder and harder.  The graphics were good, and I don’t have a good graphics card. The graphics only lagged once and that was during the boss battle, which was disapointing. 

All and all, I liked the game, but there are three thingsthat I did not like.  First, the last level was a bit difficult because it was hard to locate where to go.  Next, there were only 19 levels; I would have liked to see more levels.  Lastly, the ‘person’ who was giving the instructions was a bit annoying at different points.

The end was very good, and I can’t wait until I can get the next one.  This game receives 4 starsout of 5.
