Half-Life 2: The Orange Box
turned out to be really fun
I typically don't play this kind of game (gore and shooting) but finally gave it a chance after being obsessed with Portal and wanting to know what Black Mesa was about. Turns out it's really fun! actually quite addicting, I have to say I'm a big half-life fan now.
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!
The second best compilation of games on one disk
To me this was the second best disk game with multiple games in one. The 1st is grand theft auto 4 complete edition. this game is in my top 5 games of all time. Really excellent, That is a fact
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
Three awesome games
Let's start of at Half life 2. Half life 2 is a first-person shooting game that has puzzles and zombies involed. Gorden freeman, goes through an adventure will Alxy Vance, mostly to get Eli Vance, her father. You go through combine soldiers and headcrabs to get to Dr. Breen where you also get captured. Team fortress 2 is a other first-person shooter game where you play online to fight other people. You have different classes like the Heavy. He has a chaingun. The sniper. He has a mini machine gun and a powerful sniper. There are just about 10 other classes as well. Portal is a other puzzle game where you have a portal gun and you try to escape the facility. You end up defeating the portal master of some sort. Go through deadly sentrey turrets and missile traps. There are even more games. This also contains Half-life episode 2 and Half-life episode 1. 5 awesome games in one disk.
Whether it's one of the games or a few the orange box will have you hooked for at least the next 5 weeks of your life. Valve outdid themselves this time. Half Life 2 along with episode 1 and 2 is sure to take up to 16 hours to beat. The breath taking scenery, AI intelligence (both friends and foes), and the battles will be just the start of this game. Then Portal, a FPS puzzle game is a intriguing start. Where it makes you think but not hate yourself. Then Team Fortress 2 has endless amounts of fun whether playing with friends or making new nemesis.
Half-Life 2 cannot be topped
In my opinion Half-life 2 is the greatest game ever so Half-life 2 is the only reason that you need to buy this game. Portal is also a good game even though its short, but as good as Team Fortress 2 is the console version is almost a demo compared to the pc version which is also FREE on STEAM.
Great but the portal is bad
if they made it without the portal it might have be awesome better than any game ever.
PORTAL 1 NEEDS TO BE A STAND ALONE PS3 TITLE
Well I Wish Portal 1 was a single game on ps3 but overall a great set but i'm not into half life a team fortress
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.
