    Bridge Constructor Portal is a fantastic puzzle game, and a thoroughly Portal title.

    The well-done, sarcastic style and Ellen McLain as teh original voice complete the overall package well.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend Bridge Constructor Portal as a rich, challenging puzzler with plenty of brain-twisters in store across its 60 levels. The pacing and methodical iteration it encourages meant it only ever taxed my mind, not my nerves. As a Portal fan’s nostalgia piece, it’s really not much better than a kitschy, amusement park gift shop recreation of the world many of us know and love – but the little nods serve well enough to enhance an already enjoyable puzzle game.

    This title successfully combines the diverse characteristics of two classic games. The key puzzle logic of Portal is now perfectly presented in the world of Bridge Constructor. Although we can find some annoying defects, this game is still worth a try, if you are a fan of any one of these two series.

    As a complete neophyte to the Bridge Constructor series, Bridge Constructor Portal got me surprisingly invested.

    Good news: new Portal game! Bad news: it’s just a marriage between Portal and Bridge Constructor. Good news: it’s a happy marriage. Building bridges with GLaDOS might not be as atmospheric and witty as big Portal games, but it sure is fun and it’s definitely not the case of cynical preying on a beloved franchise. [02/2018, p.48]

    A good logic game that is far from the potential of a great license. It can entertain, but it can also tire you very quickly due to the absence of new elements during the campaign. [Issue#282]

It has so many solutions to completing the levels that you are never bored. Every time you come up with an idea how to safely transport your convoy without using the given portals or other mechanisms (generally do it differently from what the game authors had in mind) you feel quite smart and smug ;)

    I had a great time playing it and after 23 hours it never got a tad tiresome. For a mere $10 you get a lot of bang for buck. The only lackluster part of the game was its music. After less than half of the game I turned off the in-game music and switched to my own playlists. Also I wouldn't mind more GLaDOS comments. Every other aspect of the game was pure gold and I can only hope we'll get a sequel to this terrific game. I'm also waiting for Portal 3 though I'm almost certain that Valve does not know hot to count to three. Sadness :/

It's relatively easy (I felt that only maybe 2-3 out of those 60 levels were a true challenge) and even though the UI was improved a LOT over the original Bridge Constructor, it still sucks. You can't simply select, move and delete things like you would expect based on any other application that you control with a mouse (be it real time strategy games, graphics applications, etc.). When you jump to specific levels from the main menu, there is no preview of the level layout. And for some reason, achievements don't unlock immediately but when you return to the main menu. So... it seems fairly unpolished. One would think that with all their development experience, they would know better by now...

    Now for the good: The visual style is pretty good and it performs well (even on my low-powered Intel HD Graphics, it ran at relatively smooth 20-60 FPS in full HD - depending on how complex the bridge constructions are and whatnot). Music is very good, even though not varied enough. And even though the game is relatively easy, it still takes a bit of time and tinkering to figure out stuff sometimes and that makes it really fun. As well as the occasional humor - maybe not the best writing we've read/heard in the Portal universe but I still found it amusing. I for one was basically not able to put it down for days and did finish it after about three (24 hours for all achievements).

    It's not portal, but to be fair who actually expected this bridge constructor game to be portal?
    Anyway i still enjoyed it pretty much.

    It's not portal, but to be fair who actually expected this bridge constructor game to be portal?
    Anyway i still enjoyed it pretty much.
    You get to play 60 levels, creating bridges and using portals to find solution to the puzzle.
    Graphics looks same as in Portal ( i mean trailers with stickmans and The Lab)
    Gameplay is okay, but i just hate idea of these cannons shooting plasma balls.
    Trying to aim them is just so random and frustrating.
    Another problem with BC:Portal is uneven level of difficulty. In some levels you immediately
    see the solution, and in some levels you can spend half an hour trying to solve the puzzle.
    I have no problems with difficult puzzles, but its just so uneven. 20 level might be harder then 50.
    But even with this problems, game has great humor and creative puzzles. Its really nice to play, but the game does not engage like a portal and portal 2.

I'm glad that we got this rather than nothing. As we know that Portal 3 doesn't need to and will never be released or developed. But is this game good? Well, it's decent. It's visuals are nice, Ellen Mclain's voice is great, and the way the puzzles slowly pack on the difficulty is great. However, the soundtrack is quite poor, which is sad because the Portal games have had some great tracks over the years. The only interesting track is the main menu one. Also, the plot may not be intended to be taken seriously, but I will still say that the plot of this game kinda feels like a disorganized mess, when this could've very easily been avoided. That's what annoys me. So, you have humans running the place, but GLaDOS is too? Just doesn't add up, and it could've easily been avoided too. Also, the way the game melds the portals, turrets, and faith plates into the game is very solid, and the game does feel like a classic Portal puzzle experience at it's core. Overall, Bridge Constructor: Portal is a decent game that I would recommend to Bridge Constructor fans, Portal fans, and simply puzzle game fans. I wouldn't buy this for more than 10$. Expand

    After 2 installments of Lord of the Rings did we want Lord of the Rings Bridge Constructor? No.
