The Orange Box Review

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.

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.

  • 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 Orange Box is one of the greatest values in gaming history, because it's jam-packed with a variety of world-class content.

  • Summary: Game compilations are usually dry and dusty affairs. Most are either a collection of "classic" games that were new 10 or 20 years ago or a repackaging of two- or three-year-old games with all of their expansions. In general, they're usually nothing to get excited about.
  • Pros: The Half-Life 2 saga represents some of the greatest shooter gameplay ever made, Portal is a brilliant and humorous puzzle game, Outstanding visual and audio design, An unprecedented value
  • Cons: The frame rate struggles at times and the loading times are a bit long

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.

Between Half-Life 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2, you're bound to find something you'll absolutely love in The Orange Box.

  • Summary: It's hard to talk about what Valve's The Orange Box offers without immediately falling into an impression of some sort of late-night pitchman for fantasy knives and alternative cleaning products.
  • Pros: Portal is an amazing combination of thought-provoking gameplay and a terrific sense of humor, Outstanding sound across all five games, You won't be finished with everything on the disc anytime soon
  • Cons: Playing through all three Half-Life 2 games in succession makes Episode One stand out as a relatively weak link
