    Maelstrom's Portal (PC)

    [May 1, 2008 10:59:43 AM]
    Portal is absolutely fantastic. This game just works on so many levels it is incredible. Not only does Valve once again give you a mysterious storyline and leaves it up to you to decipher it, the gameplay is out of this world. This game marks a very unique spin on puzzle games and first person shooters, breeding a hybrid child of the two. There are FPS elements without ever picking up a true "weapon" in the game, and there are puzzle elements without ever leaving the sights of your character (a random female, who looks pretty good).

    When the Orange Box came out last year I was by far the most excited to continue the HL2 story. Episode 1 left you with a huge cliffhanger on the way out of City 17's meltdown. I ended up giving Portal a try first, just because it was a new and unique experience, and I was BLOWN AWAY. This game is challenging, fun, addictive, everything. The only bad part was when the game ended...but thankfully there are advanced challenges!

    Portal can very easily be turned into the next blockbuster series. It will never reach the status of Half-Life, but it has the potential for future games and a lot more possibilites. I am excited to see what those possibilities are.
