Summary: I bought this game for my son, he says that it is a great game, no complaints. There is one update for the game. He felt like they could have added more updates to team fortress two. Good value for 5 games!
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. The graphics are pretty good, but not astonishing. If youve never played Half Life 2 and the episodes, and you dont have a computer to play them, i recommend you buy this.
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. If you're a fan of first-person shooters, the Half-Life saga is one of the best.
Technical issues slightly tarnish a flawless software package

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 experiences around, so I don't see how its inclusion here could do anything other than make this already-stellar package even more appealing.
Summary: Fun game but you lose track in the story after a couple hours because they don't touch on it all but a couple of times throughout. Great all around though. Not sure if it was the copy I got or if all the Orange Box PS3 editions have issues, but the audio was kinda messed up. Crackling, distortion, etc.
Summary: A great game, especially if you're already a fan of the Half-Life franchise. The sights and sounds of the first game are abound. Also, it's a great deal... although I received this game for X-Mas, I can see The Orange Box being sold for $40. For Half-Life 2 (including episodes 1 & 2), Portal, and Team Fortress 2, you're getting a great deal. Highly recommended. On the negative side, I've found the load times quite slow compared to other PS3 games.
Summary: I know a lot of people are saying that Team Fortress 2 is really bad but I think that its the best game in the package. Even though not as many people are on the ps3 version, it still, overall, has a pretty good turn-up. I didn't really like the controls for the game, but at least they let you change them to what you would like. One of the bad things on TF2 is that you can't zoom in unless you are a sniper and it's just a scope.
