Summary: Great classic that I got to experience for the first time! Having played Half-Life years ago, these sequels brought back the early memories and fondness of the game. And Portal is a cult classic! Now I see why there is a great following in the geek gamer crowds. Awesome!
Summary: This has to be my favorite game of all time. Like I said i don't know why I didn't buy it earlier. I though that this game didnt half-life 2 or episode 1, so thats why i didnt buy it. but i looked on the box and it does have both! Now only if they came out with episode 3 lmao.
Summary: The orange box has been around for sometime now but it's still just as awesome to have since the day it came out. The games are ones you'll want to play over and over again. Definitely worth buying, especially at Amazons steal of a price!
As a console gamer I can see what all the Pc gamers have been praising all these years

Summary: First off I rated this game a 5 stars because this game sucked me into the story since the very start. I'm talking about half life two, the story is kind of confusing at first since I never played the first Half life. All I did was go on youtube to look up the first games lore and I have to say the universe of Gordan Freeman is very intriguing to say the least. The game really pulled me in that much more since I knew what was going on.
Summary: The main reason for buy this was to get Half Life 2. The other games are OK, but not great. Even though a I know a lot of people who really like Portal. Ahhh... I can take or leave Portal, and Team Fortress... Who cares. Half Life 2 is one of the greatest games ever in my opinion. Half Life 2 is intriging, fun, not overly difficult, and the graphics engine in awesome. Play it and you'll be hooked. Why the next installment was never put out is beyong me. Oh well.
Summary: Not only do you get Half Life 2 and its expansions (which hold up incredibly well 10 years later), you get the 5 hours of pure joy that is Portal. Throw in Team Fortress 2, and you've got a solid package. 5 years from now, this will be one of the titles that people still play on their 360.
Summary: Game is in excellent condition. The only part I wanted was Portal, but the price was reasonably so I did not mind paying for all five games (Steam had Portal alone listed for only $5 less). It arrived within a few days of me purchasing this. Almost as if the game itself was sent to me through a portal...So...Onto the puzzles!
