You wake to find yourself in a small, square, glass room containing a futuristic-looking tube-like bed, a toilet, and a table with a radio playing a tune on it alongside a mug and a clipboard with data on it. A timer is counting down from a minute just above the closed door leading out of the small room. A voice sounds from a speaker in the ceiling of the room. After some things are said, the voice becomes distorted for a second, sparks come out of the speaker, and the voice returns to normal. It counts down from five, synchronized with the timer above the door. At zero, the door opens, and you are released from your cell.... Written by mboharsik

Did You Know?


As Chell begins placing bits of GLaDOS in the incinerator she states mathematical facts that are incorrect. This is possibly a reference to the novel (not the movie) 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke. In the book, as Dave Bowman is disconnecting HAL 9000, among other math errors HAL states "Two times two is approximately 4 point one oh one oh one oh..." while GLaDOS says "two plus two is five...in base ten I.m fine".

When Valve attempted to solve the error of Chell being able to fall from incredible heights, it added the plug leading from the back of her foot to the back of her knee to strengthen her muscles. However, without any back support including an exoskeleton or bars stronger than human bones, there is no way she can be completely protected. See more »


GLaDOS: The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak.

Your 3D review and gameplay information
30 June 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First for my 3D review - 3D via nVision works absolutely beautifully actually so well that I cannot pick a fault - even the cross-hair is fully 3D! When this game first game out I gave it a try and enjoyed it

  • well sort of but got stuck on about the fourth level and just gave

up. A couple of years later I picked up where I left off and ended up playing this game and the sequel all the way through it was that good! It seems that once you work out the physics to the portal gun you can easily work out any puzzle and as usual I am going to give my standard reason for loving this game so much as 'You simply cannot put it down also its the sort of game that you will want to come back to time and time again. The variation in environments, the temperamental gLAdos character who is some sort of malevolent being watching your every move
  • whats not to love? The graphics are superb and even today look quite

up to date. Give Portal a go but don't give up part way through - if you can get past the moving/floating panels the rest of the game picks up and super enjoyable. Please email me at ratct17@hotmail.com for any 3D game review requests.
