The Orange Box

Strategy Informer
9 October 2008
  • Conclusion: For anyone who hasn’t played any of the Half-Life 2 games, the Orange Box is a must have. $60 is an unbelievably great deal for it, on the PC or 360. Those who have will still have plenty of time to enjoy Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2, which are above and beyond most games out. A second run through wouldn’t hurt either, just to see the upgrades. Game of the year contender would be a very easy going namesake for this package.

The Orange Box Review

VideoGamer.com
25 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Notes about PlayStation 3 version: You've no doubt read an awful lot about The Orange Box over the past few months, so rather than make you read through the whole review to find out specifics about the PlayStation 3 version, I'll summarise them here. Is the game worth getting? Definitely. Is it the best console version available? No. Compared to the Xbox 360 game this PS3 port falls someway short.

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box Review (PS3)

10 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Yes, the "true" Half-Life 2 experience is to be had on a PC. Yes, I will admit that the mouse keyboard combo is a better hardcore option for shooters than the Sixaxis. But, Half-Life 2: The Orange Box is a superb PS3 game, and an excellent option should you not be able to, or want to play the PC version.
  • Pros: Quite possibly the greatest gaming value in history, or at least close to it, Console jockeys now will know the pleasure of Half-Life 2, et al, Portal is one of the more memorable and original FPS experiences in years, The Half-Life games tell a story better than any FPS in recent memory, Quite possibly the greatest gaming value in history, or at least close to it, Console jockeys now will know the pleasure of Half-Life 2, et al, Portal is one of the more memorable an...
  • Cons: Driving in Half-Life is dismal, People will complain about the controls, others will be glad to be keyboard free, Yup, framerate issues again, the Xbox 360 version runs more smoothly, Load times can be a drag, not too long, but close for a FPS, The cake is a lie, Driving in Half-Life is dismal, People will complain about the controls, others will be glad to be keyboard free, Yup, framerate issues again, the Xbox 360 version runs more smoothly, Load times can be a drag...

The Orange Box (PS3)

Crispy Gamer
29 January 2008
  • Excerpt: The answer has to do with some of the material being dated, and how poorly some of it is adapted to the PlayStation 3. For instance, Half-Life 2 is well worth playing on the PS3 if you haven't got a PC up to the task. But since the Source engine used in the game isn't exactly pushing the technological envelope these days, you'd have to be saddled with a real dinosaur computer to resort to playing Half-Life 2 on your PlayStation 3.

  • Excerpt: Valve has always been known for consistently releasing quality games, and Half-Life 2: The Orange Box is certainly no exception. It’s easily the best deal available in the gaming world. Comprised of five games, Orange Box sells for the standard price of any new next gen title. The package includes the original Half-Life 2, the highly acclaimed Half-Life 2: Episode 1, the newest addition Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal; a new puzzle mini-game, and Team Fortress 2; a new...

Half-Life Is Whole Fun

GIN
7 November 2007
  • Excerpt: There are moments when you just sit back and thank God that you are a gamer. Half-Life 2 Episode Two has several. For a game that was supposed to be released last Christmas, and for an episodic six hour adventure at that, it's been a long wait for Half-Life 2 Episode Two. We were shocked when Valve told us that the game was not being released as a standalone episode as originally planned, but instead part of something called The Orange Box.

  • Excerpt: Okay, first off, I'm just going to say outright; this review will not be sticking to our standard structure due to the fact that this is really 5 games in one.
