In short it's a bit like computerised lego where you build a house in a community, set up your character, interact with other characters and do all kinds of day-to-day stuff like decorating and equiping your house, build relationships, have a family....
Here's the youtube trailer:

You should get into it!
On my first go I got 510 and then 525 on my second, at intermediate level!
I wonder would it be an idea to include a games forum on the UK Page where we could compare score like this?
The game does not cater for the last point so don't worry too much about speed.
Being over ten years younger and more brain cells is obviously a serious advantage too, dave...
Not tried it yet and yes it's from the same people - it's part of the the Orange Box pack (includes: Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2)markymark wrote:Have you ever tried Portal?
Is it not from the same makers as Half Life?
I've only just got back into gaming as I switched to Apple 3 years ago (and my PC at the time wasn't great), but my new Mac is able to run games fine (via XP on bootcamp).
Recovered my old game save and carried on where I left off, was enjoying Counter Strike last night.
I loved it and have since gone back and played it again.
I know it was a pilot and has had unexpected success that a Portal 2 is supposed to be in production. Can't remember who nabbed the rights to platform it... Was it Playstation?
I am in the middle of reports and exams at the moment. I flick in here from time to time to unwind in between reports.
I tried to build a house and designed a character which is nearly a 30 minute job if you let it get to you! The graphics are absolutely amazing. Something tells me that it's going to be the summer holidays before I get a chance to really look into it.
