Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: If you are the type of person who feels a little short changed when you purchase a new game one day and then complete it the next, then The Orange Box may be just the package for you. Offering a bountiful amount of games this is one package that should keep you going, the fittingly orange disk is certain to be keeping your 360 drive warm for quite some time this winter.

Orange Box (Xbox 360)

The Review Busters
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: It is hard to say too much about The Orange Box without ruining the games main story. Half Life 2 and the expansions are great, Portal steals the show and Team Fortress 2 is a huge disappointment. I really like everything on here, even though TF2 is lacking I did have fun online. Unfortunately this game can not receive a perfect score from me since the online play lags way to much, even after the patch Valve released not to long ago.

  • Conclusion: This game certainly has its fans but I really don't have much to say on it as I've never played it. I didn't think I would like the on-line gaming, but given the fun I've been having with Left 4 Dead, perhaps I should reconsider that.

WorthPlaying
23 November 2007
  • Summary: The Orange Box features three new games by Valve: Half-Life 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first-person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

  • Excerpt: I agree, and i think a lot of that has to do with the art style that Valve used when developing the game. Because of the aesthetics, the game doesn't seem to have aged all that much, and when talking about

  • Summary: Five great games, one great package.
  • Pros: A game to suit most tastes; excellent multiplayer as well as single player experiences; extremely high production values; includes previous titles for those who have yet to play them.
  • Cons: Portal and Episode 2 feel too short; Episode 2 feels like much of the same from Episode 1.

  • Conclusion: especially when compared to the “shoot everything that moves, then think, maybe.” gameplay found in Halo 3. Broken down in basic terms, Half-Life 2 and its two episodes must be tackled using a strategic approach: observe your surroundings, then determine the solution necessary to solve each puzzle you’ll face and act accordingly (sometimes while being pursued by slobbering things ).

Game Over Online
19 October 2007
  • Excerpt: All subterranean dwellers should pay special attention, for if you have somehow managed to miss out on playing Half-Life 2 in the past it is now time to push aside the rock that conceals the entrance to your secret cave and join the rest of us in enjoying this iconic shooter. Despite feeling a little dated at times in the wake of more modern genre representatives, HL2 is every bit as good now as it was when it came out.
