Every frame of gameplay is upgraded with stunning full ray tracing, new, hand-crafted hi-res physically based textures, and new, enhanced high-poly models evocative of the originals, all in stunning 4K. In Portal with RTX, full ray tracing transforms each level, enabling light to bounce and be affected by the scene’s geometry and materials. Every light is ray-traced and casts shadows, global illumination indirect lighting naturally illuminates and darkens rooms, volumetric ray-traced lighting scatters through fog and smoke, and shadows are pixel perfect.

    Portal with RTX proves that a game that was released in 2007 can put the most modern hardware to date to suffer. If we had enjoyed it before, now it is much more beautiful, colorful in its entirety and with so much ray tracing that we will not know what to do with it. New NVIDIA technologies (DLSS 3 and Frame Generation) show once again that we are in the future.

    It’s still a relatively short game, about three hours or so if you’ve got your Portal brain switched on - but still a remarkable experience. The puzzle rooms and pacing toward the big GLaDOS reveal, and iconic end and credits sequence is still spot on. Portal is as finely tuned, deep, and fun as ever. Case in point, after firing it up I couldn’t stop until the epic “last room” was cleared. As a visual showcase of what a remaster meets remake can be, as a re-release of sorts, and as a reminder that classic design and pacing will always be just that, Portal with RTX is a triumph. Now bring on Portal 2 with RTX, and maybe some Half-Life 2 with RTX whilst the Source engine is still fired up inside NVIDIA’s labs.

    Portal with RTX doesn't add new content, but the visual improvements make it shine like a new game. A playable wonderful that updates the graphical aspects with ray tracing, reflections, shadows, materials and textures to make it even more impressive. If you have a RTX GPU, you should try it for sure.

    Portal remains a masterpiece of a game. Even more than 15 years later, the game still hits its marks, from puzzle design to length and everything in between. Portal with RTX adds to that by sprucing up the graphics enough that it immediately rivals many modern releases on more advanced game engines. The high system requirements, along with the breaking of some core functionality, restricts who can enjoy the improvements, but the sting doesn't hurt as much due to the fact that it's free. If you are fine with those caveats, give Portal with RTX a spin, whether this is the first time you're playing it — or the 50th.

    Portal with RTX is the same masterpiece as Portal, accessible only by a small niche of people.

    Or, if you’re the sort of person obsessed with the future of video game visuals, you will appreciate Portal’s RTX update for what it does best: Prove that ray tracing matters. Ray tracing’s ability to significantly alter the game’s mood captures something powerful about the technology that can’t be seen in screenshots or a tech demo video on YouTube.

    There is a serious optimisation problem with this software. It's barely functional on an RTX 3080/5800X3d and looks 'OK'. Free is good, butThere is a serious optimisation problem with this software. It's barely functional on an RTX 3080/5800X3d and looks 'OK'. Free is good, but half baked is still likely to give one food poisoning. Ray Tracing is clearly still a few generations away from being mainstream. Even following the optimal settings guide will result in 45 FPS with DLSS on. 15 with it off. This entire experience was an unpleasant shamble. Expand

    The game (without RT) is very good.
    However, the customer is fooled with the update, as he is made to believe that his computer is too weak.

    The game is simply cheaply programmed and not optimized at all.
