A Kingdom for Keflings

Hooked Gamers
22 April 2009
  • Conclusion: A Kingdom for Keflings is worth its price. It offers lots of fun when played in short bursts, and it is a good way to sit back and unwind after a long day of playing Gears of War . It probably would have scored higher if it would have had a larger emphasis on sound and graphics, but don’t take the 7 as a bad rating; this game is worth your time, and money.

The Orange Box

maximum pc

  • Excerpt: Finishing The Orange Box left us in a state of shock. It wasn’t Half-Life 2: Episode 2’s requisite cliffhanger ending that floored us; rather, it was the realization that Episode 2 is the low point of the entire Orange Box package. Portal and Team Fortress 2 completely eclipse what Valve bills as the “centerpiece” of the bundle. Don’t get us wrong, Episode 2 is not a bad game.
  • Pros: Amazing value; Portal is top-notch; TF2 is riotous multiplayer fun.
  • Cons: Episode 2 lacks innovation; TF2 needs more The Hunted.

The Orange Box

ME Gamers
29 January 2008
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is If there’s one thing, according to us, that packs more goodies than the US Military gear, it would be the Orange Box. Valve’s reputation for video games coupled with their generous offer to end buyers makes the Orange Box almost impossible to resist. One of the best deals in gaming comes in at just under $50.

PC Review - 'The Orange Box'

WorthPlaying
3 December 2007
  • Summary: The Orange Box features three new games by Valve: Half-Life 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first-person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

GAMESQUAD
21 November 2007
  • Conclusion: Half Life 2, Half Life 2: Episode 1, and Half Life 2: Episode 2, are collectively the greatest first-person shooter collection on the planet. While Episode 2 was released just this year, Episode 1 and the original Half Life 2 were released one year and three years ago respectively. And yet, the game is still impactful and thoroughly enjoying this far removed from all of the hubbub. I can only imagine how remarkable it must have all felt when originally released.
  • Pros: Brilliantly presented story and universe; breadth of content is remarkable; portal is a fascinating and creative addition (THE CAKE IS A LIE).
  • Cons: Team Fortress 2 is not very fun; Half Life 2 does not demand repeated play; portal is too short.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If this is not a 10/10, nothing is. Utterly essential gaming. Buy it in a shop on Xbox 360 or PC from today, or go to steampowered.net and download it via the miraculous Steam delivery system for a bit cheaper. Or wait for the PS3 version, which will be out at some point soon.
