The Frame Rate issues are REAL!!

Gulf War Vet "Gulf War Vet", Amazon
7 December 2010
  • 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. This has the absolute worst frame rate issues of any PS3 game that I own ( Resistance, Resistance 2, Killzone, God of War, etc.) They definitely affected play in the Water Hazard significantly.

Great games. Fantastic value for money. Poor sound.

A. Webb, amazon.co.uk

  • 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. I dont know how EA or Valve get away with having the DD stamp on the cover, or in fact how Dolby themselves allow it, when DD just doesnt work.

  • Summary: Just got this on monday, I've given a playthrough to all games on the disc. specs: favourite single player game on the disc: Half Life 2 I've never played it before and had some interesting chapters Least Single player game on the disc: HL2episode 2 what I didn't like: -lack of a map (as far as I know) I'm not sure why a man that walks around with a high-tec suit wouldn't have a map or GPS system, I found myself going around in circles (especially on the ravenholme...

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

Zandor Vorkov, amazon.co.uk
11 December 2011
  • 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. You can skip TF2 all together, there's barely any people online (and for a multiplayer focused FPS that's terrible), better play that game on PC since it's gone free to play.

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. As for Team Fortress....well I never ever got to play it. It always crashed or there were problems with the servers.

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. This affects multiplayer-only games like Team Fortress 2 much more than Half-Life 2 itself, which is almost as good on the PS3 as it is on the PC.

OK OK OK

I'LL DECIDE THAT "My choice", amazon.co.uk
17 November 2008
  • Summary: I thought this game would be good and it is but... not really my thing, sure its great value for money with 5 separate features at a great price but the puzzle solving and the long complex ghoulish levels are a pain and very annoying at times. The game play i will say however is very entertaining and is darn good fun but can be repetitive.

Should have been a product recalll

  • Conclusion: I enjoyed Half Life 2 and Portal - both great games - but then I started to play Half Life 2 episode 1, and a big pink and black chequered cloud obscured my view.

Quantity over Quality

Mr C, amazon.co.uk
26 January 2008
  • Summary: This is a good value pack of 5 games (unless, like me you don't go on line and then its 4 games) - Fortress is unplayable off line. The Half life 2 games are a pretty poor affair of very sparse levels, poorly animated people and clumpy graphics. A good story does hold it all together but it is just a port after all and its not as good as every one makes out.
