Rated 5 out of 5 by LegoTFGuy from Testing begins in 3... 2... 1... After the Ideas set was rejected I was ready to accept that we'd never get an official LEGO Portal set- so when Portal content was announced for LEGO Dimensions I was, to put it mildly, extremely overjoyed. The Chell minifigure is fantastic, save for the Portal Gun having a rubber handle that makes it near impossible to get in or out of her hands (it should have been a piece that clipped over an existing nozzle/tap piece for the handle). The Turret is a very accurate build, though a bit oversized. The companion cube is also a nice build. Those who don't have the game and are only interested in the build/figures will not be disappointed. As for game content, this pack will unlock a new Portal-themed level (which is basically Portal 3) and the Portal adventure world. Also of note is that, unusually for a Dimensions set, all 3 of the game pieces in this set have an exclusive ability/ Chell can make Portals, the Cube can activate buttons, and the Turret can shoot special targets. These abilities pop up several times in other levels and adventure worlds, making it a must-have for completists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheGoodReviewer from This is statement is true. I pre ordered this alongside the game and some other packs. I thought that the included level was absolutely amazing despite requiring other characters that I did not own at the time, but now own, to see everything the level has to offer. The only problem that I, like many others, was that the portal gun mold had a rubber extension that would bend when attempting to put the thing in the hand of the Chell minfigure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Larry2011 from I originally saw this set at a Costco store, but couldn't get it at the time as I didn't have a membership. So today, I finally got it at a Walmart that carried it, the game, and the other Add-On packs. I was finally satisfied. There's only one thing I really dislike about the set; the instructions. I open the box, pour out the contents, put Chell together, struggle a bit with the placement of the portal gun piece (it's made of a rubbery plastic that's annoying to work with), flip to the next page, and what? "Continue building using the in-game building instructions". I know that this is an add-on for LEGO Dimensions, but is it really asking too much to include the rest of the instructions? So, I used the online instructions to complete the other pieces and all's good. Overall if you have a copy of LEGO Dimensions, you'll be able to get the most out of this set. If not, well you can still get some value out of it by making some good PORTAL themed creations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by whataslacker from Love Portal Portal and Portal 2 are 2 of my all time favorite non-LEGO games and now I have a small LEGO version of it. The Chell figure, Companion Cube and Turret look awesome (so much so I bought a second set for non-game related MOCs -- figured I would have spent that kind of money on a custom minifig any way, so why not). Worst part about this set is the portal gun. Looks great but man is it hard to get the figure to hold it at all and once it is in her hands it is done for. You can't twist it to pose with the figure. Once it is in place it doesn't move. Period. So get a pose and keep it because you will not want to take the gun out of her hands, because it is too much of a pain to get it back in. LEGO needs to keep in mind when making small pieces for the figs to hold the playability drop immensely when you can't actual make the figure hold the weapon/utensil (should be a smooth/hard plastic to snap in place). The level for the game could have been a little longer, but that's just me wanting a FULL length LEGO Portal game is all. Love that the game credits use a Portal song. Very cool. For those complaining that there are no instructions, that's the point. you build these in game as part of the in game experience. If you want to build them outside of the game LEGO has supplied the downloads of all builds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BentWright from Cake and grief counseling will be available. I enjoyed the game play of the Portal 2 levels, like the toys included in the set and am pleased that this is one of the few LEGO Dimensions level packs where the playable character, "vehicle," and gadget formula of level packs actually developed into great play. I find the Chell character and companion cube useful to get to gold bricks in any number of adventure worlds. I don't use the Sentry Turrent outside the Portal 2 level, but the detailed fun to build toy make up for its lack of usefulness in the game. I love the GLaDOS dialog in the Portal 2 levels. I very much dislike having to sit through the cut scenes/game animations every time I play the levels, many of which are unskippable. I hate having to wait through all the annoying Wheatly animations while the clock is ticking. I've played the level at least ten times, and still cannot get the 25 minute "Speedy Thing Goes In" trophy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kevopilis from diversionary entertainment At first I had trouble figuring out the portals,while I'd played the pc halflife2,which was not anything like the first,I'd never played portal,expecting it to be similar in worth.I wish I'd have played pc portal. I like Glados,very amusing for a deadly computer.I've only played the level,which went by ,maybe a bit fast,but it was enjoyable.A bit different play,figuring out puzzles.I expect portal world will be interesting as well. The level pack is worth buying and Chell will come in handy in the other worlds.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MagnaCrux from Have Portal-gun, Will Travel I've been following the Portal-themed suggestions on Cusoo/Ideas for some time now because good lord, I love me some Portal. And Lego too, obviously. When I saw the release for the Portal-themed Dimensions-content this initially made me really happy (Portal! And a new Lego-game! Featuring stuff from... Portal!), then confused (Portal? But - not for the PC?), then resigned (Well, at least as a builder/collector I'll get some awesome Portal-themed Lego out of the deal). So that's my point of view, and allow me to take it from there. I'm happy to admit that it's a biased point of view and that I'm not even remotely getting the full experience, but for now I'm just waiting for the good folks at Lego to pick up the PC/Mac-ball (There's money in this, Lego/TT!). Let's start off with the obvious: Chell! Chell is just great. Her minifig is as posable as any other, so no worries there - and she just looks adorable in Lego-form. I'm not saying Chell by her lonesome would be worth the package alone, but I'm not sure how this could be improved upon. She's your very own dangerous mute lunatic, and she is awesome. The Portal Device is... not so good. It definitely looks the part, but the strange rubber it's made of feels weird, feels off somehow. Chell's hand, being much harder than material of the Portal Device, didn't "give" when I tried to equip her with it, meaning I had to use an uncomfortable degree of force - and when it WAS equipped there was so much friction that I couldn't rotate the device in her hand without fearing I might tear off the handle. Suggestion: keep this mold, use a different material. The stuff used to make holders, for instance? The Companion Cube is pretty decent. It might've looked better to just put six tiles on a Lego-die instead, but I guess that would seriously hamper the idea of building/rebuilding. The Sentry Turret is unexpectedly awesome! It looks great, and it's built with a nice variety of parts - most of which can easily be replaced with other colours/prints to create your own custom Turret, just like Cave Johnson would want you to have. Right. Time to end this (again, admittedly biased) review. If you don't own Dimensions, you're probably not getting your money's worth unless you're both a fan of Lego AND a die-hard Portal-fan. Personally, I am okay with this purchase. I'd love to see Lego hang on to this IP for future playsets, but in this case I'd suggest another look at Lego-dice for the Cubes, and definitely a different, firmer material (with less friction) for the Portal Device. I know I'm approaching this from the wrong viewpoint, but - we need more Portal, Lego. So much more Portal. There's just never enough.
