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

About.com
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 Review

DarkZero
8 January 2008
  • Excerpt: It’s all very simple really. If you are interested in the contents of the Orange Box, and you just own a PS3 then you buy the game for that platform, it’s just that good. Sure, it is a slightly inferior version than the rest – with some crazy inexplicable framerate problems in random areas throughout the game – but the core product is still excellent enough to warrant you playing the compilation.

The Orange Box

Megaconsolas
10 June 2014
  • Summary: En definitiva: Cinco títulos fuera de serie, al precio de uno solo, que agradarán a los fans de los shooters, eso sí, textos y voces en inglés y con algunos defectos.
  • Cons: Un gran pack de cinco estrellas., Experiencia jugable diversa, trepidante, duradera y divertida., Team Fortress 2 y Portal: entretenidos y originales como ellos solos., Un hilo argumental sobresaliente., Destacan a nivel gráfico y de diseño artístico (sobretodo)., Textos y voces en inglés., Frecuentes ralentizaciones en Episodio 2., Tiempos de carga elevados, sobretodo en Portal., El precio respecto a la versión de PC.

The Orange Box

  • Conclusion: Ciò che intriga The Orange Box per gli appassionati di sparatutto è la stessa cosa che attira chi si avvicina per la prima volta al genere: la possibilità di avere cinque titoli che hanno segnato la storia degli sparatutto in un' unica scatola. Tutto curato egregiamente, peccaro per la mancanza di una traduzione italiana e qualche occasionale rallentamento. Vivamente Consigliato.

  • Conclusion: L'investissement vaut-il le coup ? Voilà une bonne question. Si vous n'avez pas eu l'occasion de tâter du Half-Life 2, clairement oui. Si pour vous rien ne vaut le jeu d'équipe, Team Fortress 2 pourrait vous décevoir par son manque de contenu. Portal vaut à lui seul le coup mais la durée de vie est plus que courte.
  • Pros: L'immersion de Half-Life 2, Le concept de Portal, Le fun de Team Fortress 2
  • Cons: L'aspect technique, Le contenu léger de TF 2, Un Portal bien trop court

  • Conclusion: Attendu par certains comme le messie, The Orange Box déçoit énormément par sa technique limite inacceptable, ses graphismes datés et son rythme décousu. Il n’empêche que 5 jeux pour le prix d’un, c’est rare, et que cette « Boîte Orange » satisfera les amateurs de FPS, tout en ne devenant pas la référence du genre.
  • Pros: Bonne Ambiance, Portal : Unique et addictif, 5 jeux pour le prix d’un, Bonne durée de vie
  • Cons: Techniquement raté, Graphismes dépassés, Les chargements à répétition et longuets, Online désert, Scénario

The Orange Box - Test

Eurogamer
21 January 2008
  • Summary: An einem solchen Manko, sofern es denn bestehen sollte, mache ich den finalen Score aber nicht fest. Stattdessen stellt sich mir die Frage, wie hoch die Strafe für diesen offensichtlich minderen Port eines auf Mittelklasse-PCs tadellos flüssigen Spieles ausfallen muss. Es mag vielleicht nicht immer eine gerechte Welt sein, aber das wird mich jetzt nicht davon abhalten, Gerechtigkeit walten zu lassen.

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box

21 December 2007
  • Excerpt: - Half-Life dateert al uit 1998 en was één van de meest populaire PC games in die tijd. Een opvolger, die zes jaar later kwam, was dan ook niet verwonderlijk en al snel kreeg Half-Life 2 enkele uitbreidingen in de vorm van ‘Episodes’. Vandaag de dag zijn er immens veel uitbreidingen van Half-Life 2 beschikbaar en met The Orange Box krijgen we enkelen daarvan te spelen. Weet de game enkele jaren na dato op de PlayStation 3 nog steeds potten te breken?
