5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games I've played. October 14, 2003
I'm a gamer. I had so much fun playing this game that the kids wanted me to buy them a copy. Most everyone in the house, plus other people I know, from age 5 to 46, has played this game and loved it. I love the graphics, music, and gameplay. Now I'm looking for other Army Men games. I hope they make a sequel to this one.
I'm 46 years old and there are a few games I play over and over again; this is one of them. You play as Vikki, Vikki with Leo the lion, Vikki riding Leo, and just Leo. I love the gameplay variation, the beautiful levels, interesting puzzles, spansive adventure, and shooting action. Vikki can shoot in first-person or third-person mode. She can often auto-aim at times when it's really needed (especially helpful in the tree area). Locating all the gems adds extra replay value. All in all, I really love this game. No downside. And I still play it. I play many games over and over again: Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry, Drakan, Soul Reaver and more. So I have varied taste. Try this one. I give it a 6 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars When was the last time a game made you smile? September 20, 2001
By A Customer
For me, it was earlier this evening when I first played Portal Runner. My money was not wasted on this game. It is a spinoff of the popular ARMY MEN series by 3DO.
I believe that a good game REQUIRES interesting characters. Look at Capcom's great games -Streetfighter, Res Evil, Megaman, and their other series- full of interesting characters. This game too has interesting and entertaining characters. You play as Vikki, who occasionally gives verbal feedback (not unlike Bruce Willis in Apocalypse PSX) and assists you with the puzzles (at least in Dream mode). It's easy enough for all ages and just as fun. I'm 26 and I love this game.
I told you about the characters already, and the graphics are just as intriguing. The music fits the setting perfectly. This game is just plain fun. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Playstation Game Ever? September 18, 2001
By Evan
You bet it is! I loved playing this game. It was awesome! The gameplay was great. You could play as Vikki, herself, or Vikki with Leo, just Leo, or Vikki riding Leo. This game is full of non-stop adventure and action. It has a great story line that gets you involved. I found myself playing for at least 5 hours at a time. The music was good like everything else about this game. The levels were fun to play and my favorite world was The Prehistoric World. The dinosaurs were awesome. There is also a very cool two player mode. You can play in six diff. levels from the game. I heard other magazines gave this game really good reviews. I can believe it!! This PS2 game was well worth the money! Buy it now and you won't regret it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Corny, but really fun!! November 29, 2001
This game is a little like Tomb Raider in that you have to find ammo (in this case, various types of arrows) and objects to complete puzzles. There's even hearts to heal you (think TR med-packs).
There are several difficulty levels you can choose, and 4 character modes (Vikki alone, Vikki with Leo by her side, Vikki riding Leo and Leo alone) which change as you progress through the levels. The levels themselves offer a nice change..there's a candy store, a prehistoric world, a mideval world, and an alien spaceship.
If you're a goofball like me, you'll be laughing your way through this game. With corny comments like "shut your piehole!", waiting to hear what Vikki had to say in various situations was almost too much to bear.
So, if you're looking for some fun and some laughs, this game is for you.
Anyone who panned this game just didn't "get it".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all types of gamers September 13, 2001
By A Customer
Portal Runner puts you in the role of Vikki, a sexy reporter. When her arch nemesis nabs her beau, she teams up with a Lion to go kick some... You get the idea.
The gameplay is a nice mix of shooting, platforming and puzzle solving. A few levels into the game, you meet up with Leo the lion. He then follows you through the game, helping Vikki. In some levels you control Leo, some Vikki, some Vikki and Leo and some with Vikki riding Leo! There are 4 different skill settings, from Dream mode (SUPER easy) all the way up to Expert which is challenge enough for the hard core gamer. I always play on Expert, but most of my friends can only handle Medium.
The graphics are pretty good, the effects are very nice. The different worlds that Vikki travels through are presented very well through FMVs in between levels. There are tons of secrets in each of the 20 levels, and even six different multiplayer levels!
PSE2 gave this a 97% and I agree. This is a pretty cool game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for everyone, especially kids! September 15, 2001
If you're looking for a game that offers you non-stop heart pounding intense action, Portal Runner is not for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for a game that mixes action, adventure and some puzzle solving, then I would highly recommend this game.
I was plesantly surprised by this game's ability to keep me entertained. I guess it's partly because the levels are varied and interesting, plus there's the 4 different modes of play (as Vikki, Vikki with Leo, as Leo and Vikki riding Leo) that kept the game fresh. As for why this game did nto get 5 stars from me: sound effects. For the most part, the sound effects are below average. I felt like the same sounds were being used over and over again. It's really too bad cuz after seeing this game featured on so many covers, you'd think this was a 5 star game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected
Which may not be saying much, and it isn't. It isn't their worst game, but it won't make you want to play continuously either.
