Trip Hawkins, president of the 3DO Company, sent an angry email to John Rousseau, president of video game review publication GamePro, which was the first publication to review Portal Runner, after it gave the game a low score of 2 out of 5. Hawkins threatened to pull advertising from GamePro and believed that because their review was the first published it would "set the tone by telling the hardcore what to think." Hawkins also described their review staff as "angry young men that are poorly trained and represent a narrow and anarchistic element of the world's population."
