Five gripping, mature sci-fi shooter games.

Common Sense Media
29 February 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this collection of four "Mature"-rated games and one "Teen"-rated game can be violent because you're using weapons from a first-person perspective. Expect explicit violence and gore with plenty of bloody human and alien causalities. Swearing is limited, but some sequences might spawn a line such as "Damn it, Hunters!" or "S--t!" Games like Team Fortress 2 are played online, so players might be exposed to foul language spoken by other gamers.

The Orange Box (PS3)

GamePro.com
9 January 2008
  • Excerpt: The Orange Box is as close to a must buy title as it gets for PS3 owners. It features five incredible games that are worth buying individually; heck, for Team Fortress 2 alone, I'd thrown in my first-born as well.
  • Pros: Five incredible games in one awesome package. There are dedicated servers for TF2.

  • Excerpt: The Orange Box from Valve is a real bargain for anyone yet to be sucked into the Half-Lifestyle erm, style. Maybe that should be Half-Life lifestyle... Whatever, The Orange Box - The most complete HL collection yet - should not be passed up. What do you get for your money... Let's see… The headline game is HL2: Episode Two, at the time of this pack's release, the latest offering in the series. Earth is being picked to the bone by an alien infestation.

The Orange Box

  • Excerpt: Isn’t it a wonderful time to be a first-person shooter fan? With Halo 3, Crysis, and Call of Duty 4 being released in such rapid succession, it’s almost too much. Gamers on a budget will certainly be feeling the pain, but thankfully, The Orange Box is here to make the choice oh-so-easy. For the same price of any one of those games, The Orange Box packs five- yes, five- games onto one disc.

  • Excerpt: Since its release back in 2004, I have always wanted to play Half-Life 2. Originally on the PC and then ported to Xbox, I never got a chance to play what we could consider the first next-gen game of this generation. Now that I have had a chance to play it, along with the two expansions in The Orange Box, I am glad I waited to play them all together. The ending to the first leaves much to be desired and is woven together nicely in the two expansions that follow.

23 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Boasting no less than 5 games -- count 'em, five! -- in one package, it's nigh impossible to not to equate Valve's new PC and Xbox 360 title, The Orange Box, with perfection.
