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: Yes, this came out EARLY into the Xbox 360 console's life, but there is a lot of content here. It is described as 5 games in 1 box, which is partially correct, although 3 of them are Half Life games. And those games are sooooo good. You'd expect the developments in FPS over the last 5 years to have made them outdated, but it hasn't. Actually the gameplay in the Half Life games is superior to almost all FPS released to date on the Xbox 360! Why?
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.
Summary: I've loved Valve games ever since the very first Half-Life. This is the same thing but with much better graphics, longer story (Ep.1, Ep.2) and more interaction. Portal is loads of fun, and Team Fortress 2 is not bad although I prefer to play it on PC.
