Summary: I actually bought this mainly for Portal because Portal 2 is one of my favourite games ever and i just had to play the original. Plus Half Life 2 is one of those games that lots of people rave about and as i saw it for the bargin price of £6.99 it was a no brainer.
Summary: I was excited when I got the Orange Box. I saw that there were basically 5 games on it and they were supposedly all good. Unfortunatley, I was dissapointed. Portal was fantastic and I loved playing it. However, I couldnt get into Half Life 2 and in the end I just gave up on trying to be entertained.
Summary: My PC cant run anything, so i decided to get this since i remember playing Half life 1 on my cousin's PS2 when i was young. But I have to admit, this is the worst port Ive ever played. The framerate drops (not everytime, but it happened a few times). Also, the game froze on me twice.
Summary: Half-Life 2: Episode Two - 8 Team Fortress 2 - 8 Portal - 7 Those Source Engine based games are quit annoying, every game from his own reason but with it, they all can simply get you in a beautiful adventure where your options is lots of count. Add for those the epic music in the games and whalla!
Summary: "The Orange Box" for the PS3 is definitely worth every penny spent. For 5 games all wrapped up onto a single Blu-Ray disc, this collection will keep you busy for hours on end. Half Life 2, Episode 1, and Episode 2 are amazing.

Summary: Before I begin this review, I'd like to say that I haven't played Team Fortress 2 yet. I will at some point, but at the moment, I'm not much into online gaming. But as so many people have pointed out, Team Fortress 2 is widely acknowledged as one of the most enjoyable multiplayer online gaming...
Summary: Right up front, I'll say I'm not a PC gamer; mainly because my computer hasn't been upgraded in years and not even sure it can run it. Also most of them tend to want a membership fee and all that Visa/Mastercard stuff hasn't applied to me in years so in the end I have to rely on console ports and...
Summary: The first thing that can be said for The Orange Box is what a deal it is. For less than the price of one game you're getting 5: Half Life 2, Episodes 1 and 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2. And every single one of those games are awesome in their own right.
