Best game collection, not so punctual delivery

Summary: I check regularly regarding the status of my orders. I was expecting this to arrive on February 7 but it only arrived 3 days later than the original expected delivery date. No harm here though as I was not really in a hurry, but it made me a bit nervous. Even though the delivery was late, I have no regrets in purchasing this, I love all the games in it especially Half Life! My XBOX 360 is an Asian model and this game works perfectly well on it. I really love this.
Enjoyed it (without playing the original Half Life)

Summary: Let me start off by saying that this is definitely worth the money (or at least the $30 I payed for it). It comes with Half Life 2 and 2 episodes along with it, Portal and Team Fortress 2. I didn't know what to expect when I bought it but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these games even thought they are at least 6-7 years old now.
Summary: I really don't get why people love Half-Life so much. Sure, Gordon Freeman is super badass and the gravity gun kics ass, but you just run around killing the exact same 4 or 5 kind of bad guys over a bazillion hour game. Much like halo. I imagine Team Fortress is amazing, it looks like it, but whenever I play it, it seems like the other dudes already know so much about the game that it'll take me forever to catch up with them. I don't even know which character to pick.
Summary: I'm 14 years old and I've played the first Half-Life, and have played both Left 4 Dead's, all by the same company, Valve. In this review I will discuss the pros and the cons about the Orange Box and all the games that come in it separately in one review. I hope you find it useful. The Orange Box: Action, Puzzle Solving, Minor Gore, Online Class-Based Combat. This review contains no spoilers.
Summary: The price is low on the Orange Box, but you get 5 games for the price of one; Half Life 2, Half Life 2 Episode 1, Half Life 2 Episode 2, Portal, and Fortress. Half Life 2 is worth the price by itself, the others are pure bonus. Plays well, except new areas show a loading bar that stops the action for quite a bit. Not the best player around, but definitely worth it's reduced price.
