Half-Life 2: The Orange Box
Best Game Yet
5 games 1 disc. All the games are worth playing and I still play The Orange Box a year after I got it. Very solid gameplay. Good graphics. Wonderful. My only problem is the hackers on Team Fortress 2, but recently I've noticed that the number of hackers has gone down.
The Perfect Bundle
You can get the best games that are for pc and bringing it to the ps3! if you want to play online with me, you can add me as Llamaboy321
You have to own this!!
If you haven't played these games yet...what are you thinking?? When I got back into gaming, Half-Life 2 was the first game I played. So, it definitely holds a lot of sentimental value for me. But, still, it seriously is one of the most ground-breaking games of all time. You get to enjoy huge gunfights with guards, massacre and burn crazy headcrab zombies and work your way through some of the most thought-provoking puzzle environments in any game. The other three HL2 episodes are all pretty similar (and lots of fun). They're shorter than the main campaign. Portal is simply the best puzzle game you will ever play. You basically have to work your way through numerous testing chambers using your "portal gun" to find your way out. The puzzles, voice-acting and overall gameplay is spot on. I didn't play Team Fortress. So, I can't comment on that one. You will love playing this disc for weeks. p.s. If you're new to gaming, I recommended some other games below that you need to check out. These are awesome too!
Orange Box Rocks for both systems
Quit with all the 360 vs ps3 crap. Most people could own both if they wanted to so shut up. Personally i have both and I can tell you that I like my ps3 better. Updates and demos every Thursday, free online, more power, less little kids (like the one that wrote the other review). The Orange Box will kick butt on whatever system you get it for, and big deal....so if you want the ps3 version you have to wait 2 months. That time will come and go before you know it and there are plenty of rad ps3 games coming out before then anyway. Developers will figure out the intricacies of the ps3 soon enough and a year from now both systems will release games on the same day. 360 already reached it's max potential with Gears, and Halo 3 was nothing impressive. PS3 still has much more potential, just give it a while for game makers to tap into the power. I'll be picking this up on 360 now and then I'm gonna trade gamestop the 360 version to get the ps3 version in two months. See you online!
Great Package! ! !
I know a lot of people are saying that Team Fortress 2 is really bad but I think that its the best game in the package. Even though not as many people are on the ps3 version, it still, overall, has a pretty good turn-up. I didn't really like the controls for the game, but at least they let you change them to what you would like. One of the bad things on TF2 is that you can't zoom in unless you are a sniper and it's just a scope. Half-Life 2 has a pretty good storyline but I think they could've done a better job on the controls and the graphics. It is still a pretty fun game, though. I also like Portal which is pretty short but still a lot of fun. I spent 2 hours just jumping into one portal and falling into another and then falling into the first one and then falling into the second one, and so on. Overall, it is a real addicting game but if you have an xbox I think it might be a little better on that console. Keep in mind half life 2 pc is 5 years old. Score 7.25 out of 10
The Best PS3 Compilation!
The Orange Box is the best compilation of games that you can get for the PS3. It features Portal, Half Life 2 (Plus Episodes 1 + 2), and Team Fortress 2. Here are my personal ratings and comments on all 3 (technically it's 5 games, but I'm counting Half Life 2 as 1). Portal-10/10 One of the most creative games of all time, this is a game that you have to play before you die. GLaDOS' hilarious humor will never get old. Half Life 2 (+Ep. 1,2)-9.75/10 One of the greatest games of all time finally comes to consoles. Once again, Half LIfe is a series that you have to play before you die. This is a phenomal sci-fi shooter with a very compelling story. My only complaint is kind of strange controls for the PS3 port. Team Fortress 2-9/10. TF 2 is a great multiplayer game with funny graphics and good music. It features creative classes and fun multiplayer modes. However, there is SERIOUS lag when you shoot. If you have an RPG, your shot will be delayed anywhere from 1/2 to 3 seconds! OVERALL: The Orange Box, 9.5/10 This is a great value given the fact that you get 5 great games for a reasonable price. If you don't have this game yet, go buy it now.
One Hell of a Package
This is a great deal because the package includes five games for the price of one and they're not wii play games, these are real games. Half Life 2 is a great game with a great storyline, add on the two expansion packs, portal, team fortress, you can't go wrong. This is a great first person shooting game and a must own for any serious gamer. Don't buy this game if you're into mindless shooters cause you will be disappointed. This game requires plenty of thinking so I don't recommend this to kids but if you're an adult that can appreciate a great game and a great package, buy this without thinking twice. I originally thought this game was too much exploration but as the story unfolded i found myself addicted. The only problem I have is that the 360 version runs better cause the controls are tighter and the framerate issues are basically non existent. On the PS3 however, controls feel floaty and the framerate drops here and there, other than that, it's awesome.
The Perfect Gaming Experience
So, let me start out by saying that all these games put together form the perfect gaming experience on one single disc. Half Life 2 has an excellent story line and gameplay, especially the gravity gun. I wouldn't call half life 2 perfect, but it adds to the overall perfectness of the orange box. next there's team fortress 2, and on the ps3 version there are barely anyone on line so it's really hard for me to review it, but i have played the x box 360 version, and it is really annoying with all those snipers and spies, but its really fun, so it balances out half life 2's almost perfection to make the combination perfect. Lastly there's portal and this game is perfect all by itself, all the portal based puzzles, the pitch black humor, and it doesn't get repetitive because it's only about 2 or 3 hours long. but it still makes the orange box completely perfect and i can't wait for the sequel to portal. GET THIS GAME!
All hail, the king of FPS
Have you ever gotten REALLY excited over a game in a while? Well, my dragon slaying, dungeon looting, combine slaying comrades, its time. You probalby already know, but The Orange Box comes PACKED with... dum dum duuuuuuh -Half Life 2 -Half Life 2: Episode one -Half LIfe 2: Episode two -Portal -Team Fortress two Half Life 2, as one of the most innovative games of all time already deserves a 10/10. But when you pack on two expansion packs, (episode 2 being the newest installment) and a game that could be the next generation of puzzle games (portal) AND (enough and's for you yet??) Team Fortress two, you have one kick ass package. Portal blurrs the line between objectives and enemies in a side splitting 19(+) levels of brain teasing puzzles, while Team Fortress two makes you a good team player and is a new experience every time you play it. It does not get better than this. I have been playing games for over 15 years, and this is one of my favorite games ever. (Under Ocarina of Time of Course) haha. But no doubt, the best FPS game ever.
