Drew Leachman writes: Contrary to what anyone who knows me may think, I actually really liked the Portal series. The puzzle solving and interesting concepts had me hooked throughout the experience. Sure, the jokes and ending song have been run into the ground, but that has never stopped it from being a great game. I mention all of this because Magrunner: Dark Pulse takes a ton of elements from Portal and incorporates them into its own story and game play mechanics. Surprisingly, Frogwares succeeds in making an interesting game, in both puzzles and in story.
