What you would do, if everything seems to be over and you are still alive? We are pretty sure you'd like to come home. The story takes place in Half-Life universe, after being a lab rat and death of mental ai system, you should make your way in the wake of last alive members of "Aperture Transport Systems", subdivision of "Aperture Science".

tl;dr: Objectives are very confusing and unclear, most maps are broken, no English voice acting, enemies somewhat difficult to defeat with only one or two weapons, eternal dark areas, no flashlight, lack of health regeneration, useless portal gun in "Chapters 3 & 4," BS hunter-chopper, replicating dialogue from HL2 and EP2, and both paths leading to the same ending.

This mod is VERY BAD. Looks like it wasn't playtested well or not at all. The mod also uses an installer instead of an archive file. I ended up creating an archive version of the mod so that non-Windows users, people who don't want to run the installer, and those who installed Steam on a different drive are able to play the mod.

Firstly, at what point in the Half-Life series, when does this mod take place? I know that it takes place after Portal, but at what point during the HL series?

Secondly, the dialogue is in Russian. English subtitles aren't helping at all, because they used a translator instead of translating the Russian text themselves (same thing goes with Mind Escape, a Russian Portal 2 mod). Is there any sort of comprehensible story here?

Every single map in the mod isn't "final." (as evidenced by "This map isn't final! Needs to be rebuilt without -keepstalezip and -onlyents" message in the console.) Recompile all the maps without those parameters mentioned in parenthesis or else crashes can potentially occur while playing the mod. The maps are not optimized either, the water textures are missing in DX8, and if you're playing on DX8, pausing may crash the game.

The lack of health regeneration is a pain in the ***, especially when the player has low health, leaving your screen permanently tinted red, because you can potentially die, especially because of those stupid striders you can't take out.

Objectives have no player guidance; very unclear and confusing and expects you to figure it out on your own. For instance, the part where the player has to fill up the submarine with fuel and oxygen. I got stuck on that part A LOT. I had to look up a walkthrough on how to do that puzzle.

Some areas have lack of lighting and are really dark, and you don't even have a flashlight. For example, the map where you have to find the train car. It's really dark in that map and you can accidentally run into Headcrab Zombies and/or Zombines, and you'd be just wandering around in the dark until you move the bigger train out of the way with explosives.

In "Chapter 4," the Portal Gun becomes useless for the rest of the mod. It only becomes useful at some point in "Chapter 3," but then you give it back to Aperture Science once you get everything in the facility working, leaving you with no Portal Gun for the rest of the mod.

Another thing in "Chapter 4" is that you can't even fend off the Striders (you can't even get an RPG from the weapons room). Good thing is, you can kill the Hunters with the Airboat gun. But what makes this even worse, you have to bring back a gas canister from the place where you open the gate to the generator ON FOOT while striders are shooting at you, and the fact that you can't even ******* sprint. That's just ******** and bad all around.

If you're going for the alternate path, there is a Hunter-Chopper shooting at you constantly while going up the elevator, which can, more often than not, kill the player, especially with the lack of health regeneration, and you don't even get any suit energy throughout the mod. (You do get some suit energy at the part where you have to find the train car and the part where you have to open the gate, but you only get a few batteries.)

The alternate path, unfortunately, leads to the same ending, so nothing special. Getting close to the end of the mod, it turns into HL2. That may cause conflicts within the Portal and Half-life universe (especially because there is only ONE Gravity Gun, created specifically by Aperture Science, and Black Mesa stealing it, so just putting in another Gravity Gun can confuse people who HAVE played Half-Life 2). This is more of a Half-Life 2 mod rather than a Portal mod.

The church level, the G-man sequence at the end, and the part after you turn on the generator (which turns on the lights in the turret testing room) uses dialogue from Half-Life 2 and Episode 2 respectively, but in Russian (unless that was intentional). That's not very creative, and you could've hired voice actors to fix that yourselves.

Overall, this mod gets a 1/10. I don't recommend playing this mod.
So much for a Portal and Half-Life crossover mod.
This mod is basically Portal's version of Hunt Down The Freeman because (SPOILER WARNING) Chell never actually comes home as she gets put back to the parking lot by the G-Man.

Don't play this mod unless you really want to see how bad it is, because this mod really needs to be taking lessons from Half-Life.

Since Portal 2 has been out for 10 years, this mod is non-canon and a garbage mod for the Portal and HL universe at the very least.

Im gonna be real this mod sucks. I got stuck wayyyy to much, too many time the puzzles just broke on me and I had no clue for hours. I looked online for solutions on puzzle and learned that I was doing stuff right but it broke or was arcade/nes levels of bs for the solution. OR I played the game so weird that i couldn't find ANYTHING on what to do.

I'm on the same boat with you. It's really bad, and I don't actually understand why people like a mod that's created by a Russian Portal creator (Not saying that mods made by a Russian creator are all bad. While Kill the Monk was created by a Russian creator, they put a lot of actual effort into it, especially it's funny Russian accent).

Nope, there isn't even an archive version for this mod. Unless you want me to do it for you.

Edit: I have uploaded an archive version of the mod, but it's waiting for authentication.

Edit 2: The file is now authenticated (at the time when I edited this reply)

После установки патча 3.1 вот такое, на 2.0 всё нормально. Патч чуток неиграбелен, как я погляжу.

This mod is a great portal sourcemod because it's not just another set of custom chambers, it has a whole new story escaping aperture.

Not really though, because at the end of the mod, G-Man puts you back at the parking lot.
