Bridge Constructor Portal Reviews
Bridge Constructor Portal is a wonderful puzzle game. It’s challenging, well designed and it looks fantastic. The Portal elements are integrated as well as can be and the levels benefit greatly from this. It’s hard to find fault. Sure you will get frustrated at times, but that’s all part of the learning curve and so when you eventually do solve the level you’ll be jumping for joy, just like I was when solving those Portal 2 puzzles. I can’t recommend Bridge Constructor Portal highly enough, whether you’re a Portal fan, puzzler fan or just someone looking for something new, it shouldn’t be missed.
They say that love can build a bridge, but love isn't GlaDOS' style, so you'll have to make do with girders and cables instead. Frustratingly difficult in parts, but a game that you'll keep coming back to until you master it.

Overall I had a blast with Bridge Constructor Portal and because of its very effective, and full, use of a terrific license it really goes to the next level for me. Using practically every element possible from those games it successfully manages not to be stale or predictable, instead there’s generally a new surprise around every corner. Married with controls that are spot-on perfect whether in docked or handheld mode, a sense of humor, and an unlimited budget I’m not positive how it could have been much better. Highly recommended!
glaD to see you back!
Having said that, however, the game’s 60 levels will likely take you many hours to complete, and is a thoroughly fun experience well worth the $14.99 price tag. As a certain song and this section title goes, it’s hard to overstate my satisfaction. This game is sure to please almost everyone in its target audience and I highly recommend it.
Bridge Constructor Portal is a fantastically challenging puzzle game that is dressed in $10 looks. You will not be awestruck by anything the game does, but the challenge will have you wanting more, the humor will keep you smiling, and the silly horn at the end of the level will be enough to know you "did it."
Simply put Bridge Constructor Portal is a great puzzle game. It's fair but challenging, it includes a ton of levels, and best of all it feels like a part of the world of Aperture Science, while at the same time feeling like it's own separate entry in the franchise. At $14.99 I can absolutely recommend it to both hardcore fans of puzzle games and Portal, as well as casual gamers. It's certainly no Portal 3 (and I don't really think anyone was expecting it to be), but there's no doubt in my mind that this title is worthy of the Portal name in every way, and I can't wait to see what other creative ideas developers can do with the license in the future.
So it looks like Bridge Constructor and Portal got married. I hope it's going well. They look nice together. I hope they add more members to the family.
Unlike what we think, crossing a Bridge Constructor with a Portal has produced something very beautiful and intriguing. This new title developed by ClockStone will not be the long awaited Portal 3, it is true, but it is still incredibly able to support the Valve setting. It is a very well-conceived hybrid, structured with few but complex levels.

Successful mixture: Demanding bridge-building simulation and the self-ironic puzzle flair of the portal games in harmonious harmony.

Bridge Constructor Portal is an excellent puzzle/simulator within the Portal franchise, and GLaDOS is an awesome character that will carry the player along all the campaign with good and intelligent jokes. It's a game with 60 stages and two variations of each one. If you like puzzle games, Bridge Constructor or the Portal franchises, this game is a great option for you.

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.
It might not be as funny as Portal but the puzzles are almost as inventive, in this contrived but entertaining crossover.
There are not different materials for supports or road decks, and this is more of a puzzle game than an actual bridge construction simulator. It is a lot of fun though, and since Valve refuses to actually make games anymore, it's likely this is as close as you'll get to a new Portal game for years to come.
The Bridge Constructor series gets a lot out of being combined with Portal, resulting in a quirky and engaging new twist on this physics-based puzzler. It could have gone further, whether upping the challenge you can aim for or actually giving you the portals to play with, but what's here is pleasingly inventive and has more than few tricky brain teasers.
Bridge Constructor Portal is a well-assembled holiday treat. Those expecting Portal 3 will be let down, but if you're willing to set aside unfair expectations you'll discover an accessible, flexible puzzle game that avoids many of the genre's frustrating pitfalls. Bridge Constructor Portal passes the test, and that's no lie.
Bridge Constructor Portal is a very nice fusion between two series which offers clever architectural puzzles mixed with Valve's beloved franchise twists. Accessible, pedagogue, user-friendly and delivering a very strong content, the game might be interestig even for the non-fans of the genre.
