The Frame Rate issues are REAL!!

Gulf War Vet "Gulf War Vet", Amazon

  • Summary: I had previously played Half-Life on PC and really enjoyed it. The PC controls were clumsy, so I decided to get a real game console and after much consideration decided to get a PS3. It was exciting to see that Half-Life 2 was available, so it was purchased with the console.

  • Summary: Unfortunately, I would have to agree with Kentc. No doubt this is great value for money (within it's genre that is) but it doesn't change the fact the main selling point is just wildly overrated.

PS3 version is gimped

JLower, Amazon
30 August 2009
  • Summary: Important note: This game causes motion sickness if you aren't a seasoned FPS player. The parts where you use the airboat and the jeep are going to make you want to vomit. Now that I've played both versions, I'm going to say the PS3 is gimped and broken.

  • Summary: Sure, there are some frame rate issues and glitches, but nothing to ruin the gameplay experience. After hearing so much about how half life 2 is one of the greatest games ever, I played it first. I wasn't very impressed.

Great games. Fantastic value for money. Poor sound.

  • Summary: I have long been a fan of the Halflife series on PC and purchased the Orange box for PS3. The Orange Box is outstanding value for money and I cant fault the gameplay; it's Halflife! The really big disappointment is the sound. Despite the fact it says Dolby Digital on the box it's not.

One of the most popular PC games on PS3...

Zandor Vorkov, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Overall, if you're a fan of first person shooters yet you never played half-life 2 or portal - you owe it to yourself to play those games. This particular release on PS3 is a mixed bag. You get the games, and they're pretty cheap, but oh god did EA made a poor job of porting these.

Portal=wow! HL=Boo!

That Lad, amazon.co.uk
4 July 2010
  • Summary: Let me preface this by saying I bought this on the back of reviews & word of mouth. Now I may be in the minority here but I didn't like the Half Life parts of the game. They came across as dated and I wasn't really sold on the story. So forgive me but it just wasn't my thing.

Good game, bad port

Philip Withnall, amazon.co.uk
20 August 2009
  • Summary: While all the games included in the Orange Box are brilliant by themselves on the PC, the port to the PS3 is not so good. Loading times are long, the controls aren't so fluid as on the PC, and there are few servers for multiplayer.
