If you've never played this... you're a monster.

Puzzle games are not really my favorite games, I guess that is because I'm completely horrible at them, but I have to say that this is one of my favorites in the genre, great game, I reccomend it!

4 Stars! I forgot to rate, it's my first review on the site Im sorry.
very clever game, satisfying, and funny. one of my favorite games. very short

Great! It never overstays its welcome, and manages to tell a much more interesting story than you would expect after the first few levels. It's a very short game that leaves you wanting, but that's probably for the best, as it never becomes stall or boring.

Awesome game! Clever puzzles, interesting story and they did a great job with the atmosphere and the environment.

In some ways, this is a better game than Half Life 2. It has a simple, but compelling little background story and gimmicky game mechanics. There's something about how everything works together that will just leave a lasting impression on you. Like Mark said, if you haven't played it yet, don't watch the review, just skip straight to buying and playing the game. The less you know, the better the experience will be!

This is probably my favorite single player Valve game. So very clever, pretty, and fun. I really prefer the simplicity of this one over the sequel, even if it is tragically short.

i'm not one to fall into peer pressure when objectively reviewing a game. this being said, holy fuckballs i love this game and i agree with everyone who says its amazing. it is so much fun and incredibly enthralling. its short, sweet, brilliant, and most importantly fun.

A very fun puzzle game and be hard in you'r first play through my only problem is that it's short i completed it in 2 hours

valve really outdid themselves with this one

damn it! five stars!

like tetris it is a perfect game. filled with pitch black humor, unique puzzles, and valve special charm: this sequel to narbacular drop is worth playing!

Lots of fun, creative puzzles. The game is kind of short but it really gets you thinking!

A ground breaking puzzle game built on the iconic Source engine. The story is great but the gameplay is better. Puzzles are challenging enough to rewarding and the game oozes with re-playability. Extra content includes expert stages.

The Captain
The game Portal was included in the Orange Box, released a few years ago, and is easily the best first-person shooter in the bunch. It feels a bit odd calling this game a first-person shooter, since you don't run around gunning down soldiers and monsters. It's at its heart, a puzzle game. This is possibly the first "fps/puzzle" game. And, it is easily one of the best games out right now. If you see it on a Steam sale, don't even hesitate. Portal is awesome.

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker

 Guitar Hero - PlayStation 2
"The game that started the music video game and plastic musical instrument controller craze. There is quite a good selection of music, with Crossroads being my favorite, and the gameplay is smooth and satisfying. There are different difficulties so anyone can pick it up and play and when you nail a solo on expert difficulty it is quite a good feeling. I've been playing guitar for over 10 years and while I can already play the songs in the game in real life, it is still a damn fun time." - Parker

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"The game is pretty fun to play simply because it is on the Vectrex but once that wears off the game really isn't that great. The overlay looks pretty nice though." - Parker

 The Tomb Raider Trilogy - PlayStation 3
"A great trilogy release for the PS3. And I always make Lara leap to her death. It's a wonder I ever completed them when I kept doing that." - scarecrowchan

 Rock Revolution - Nintendo DS
"Considering the fact that I hardly enjoyed Activision's effort at bringing the Guitar Hero franchise to the DS a few years back, there's no way I would be able to tolerate Rock Revolution. It looks like a half-assed attempt at best. At least with Guitar Hero DS you would have the button attachment and even though it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, it still functioned well enough. Who in their right mind would want to tap and swipe music notes, it looks boring and repetitive." - mikamifan92
