Storyline

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

Goofs

Timers that are counting down in the game aren't counting down to zero correctly. When the timer reaches 00:01:00 it immediately resets to zero, instead of counting the last second as well. GLaDOS is also saying the numbers at the wrong moment, for example, she says two when the timer says 00:02:59, when she should have said it when the timer read 00:02:00. (However, these errors were corrected when the game was released for Mac OS X.) See more »

Amazing game!
21 October 2007 | by 00Ryan00See all my reviews

This game is awesome; on the short side, but still amazing. It's basically a puzzle game with state of the art graphics and physics. You're a test subject in an "Enrichment Center" and you're using this "Portal Gun" to clear various obstacle courses; for example if you're standing in front of a pit of acid, you can shoot a portal on the wall on your side, then shoot the connecting portal on the wall on the other side, and simply walk through your portal to get to your goal. It gets much more complex as the game progresses; it's a first person game, but really tests your intelligence and reasoning abilities. It also has a simple but excellent plot, and great characters which you may find cute, creepy, funny, or all of the above. Totally original, and exceptionally fun, you have to play it!
