To prepare for the Portal 2 release, I played through the first Portal. It's still fun. Yes, figuring out the puzzles to get through each locked room is a great challenge but just playing with the portals gives a lot of enjoyment as well.
And then there is the antagonist. Your foe in Portal is both unique and entertaining. Not really that challenging but the difficulty level can be forgiven with the cleverness given to the rest of the game and the good amount of dialogue spoken by the big bad throughout the game.
If you have not played Portal the game only takes (at most) four or five hours to complete so you don't have to invest a lot of time. I recommend the game on PC as the mouse control really helps but, from what I have heard, the game plays great on consoles as well. The sequel will most likely offer the same fun, puzzle solving, and experimentation offered in the original.
