Yeah, It's kinda like that
+ Great story-easy to follow yet keeps you interested and entertained by the mystery of your surroundings.
+ Innovative gameplay-portals are a very simple concept, but made into a game, you will never forget the first time you walk through a portal and see yourself on the other side. Incredibly entertaining and perfectly executed. The combination of puzzle and reflex elements is excellent.
+Good difficulty-advanced levels will satisfy anyone looking for serious challenges, but if they are too difficult there is no real reward for beating them. The main levels are easy enough for anyone to eventually figure out.
- Only real downside is the ending is somewhat of a let down and doesn't satisfy the curiosity and only makes you want a sequel. The story seems like a demo for the upcoming Portal 2, which will hopefully follow up on these questions.
Final Verdict: 8/10. I would recommend purchasing if you are looking for a new game to keep you busy for a while, but the lack of replay value makes me suggest that you rent it or borrow it from a friend.
