Summary: With all those games in one box and on one disc, who wouldn't want it for the price? This is truly the best deal in video game history. Why don't more companies do this & release more content at one time? This may make developers think about quantity in addition to quality.
Summary: I was excited when I got the Orange Box. I saw that there were basically 5 games on it and they were supposedly all good. Unfortunatley, I was dissapointed. Portal was fantastic and I loved playing it. However, I couldnt get into Half Life 2 and in the end I just gave up on trying to be entertained.
Summary: So many games in one cd, Valve is one of the greatest video game developers out there, in par with Bungie, activision blizzard, capcom and so forth. Half-life is one of the greatest FPS campaign story lines (so many words can be used to describe how awesome Halfe Life is) game out there!
Summary: Overall this is an excellent value for your money. While the graphics on Half-Life 2 do look a little long in the tooth, the game play is still great with its unique mixture of FPS, puzzle solving, and a story to tie it all together.
Pros: You get 5 great games for the price of one with this title. Including the highly acclaimed Portal and Team Fortress 2. Also included are the 3 Half-Life 2 episodes which are amazing titles in their own right.
Cons: Team Fortress 2 has had no s and currently the online play is nearly non existant. Half-Life 2 graphics look very outdated.
Summary: Best deal in gaming history. Not a huge half-life fan, but i still played it thourgh and was pleased. Portal was excreidibly fun the first time as well, but TF2 is the gift that keeps giving. The only problem is Pc gamers are getting more weapons are services for TF2.
Summary: 100% worth it as a bundle. As stand alone games, none would be worth the retail price. Half Life 2 is an amazing, if somewhat dated looking shooter. The episodes and portal are also great, but too short. And Team Fortress 2 is only worth it if you like online games.
Excerpt: Doing the Orange box review, I felt it wouldn't be right for those who haven't gotten to experience the perfection that is half life, without having played the first one. The first half life game was revolutionary in many aspects, the most being it was the very first game ever released to get out a...
Summary: All five games are fantastic! Overall value is incredible. I would have payed this price just for portal alone. This package is a must have. I have played through all of the half life games and portal. Just getting started on TF2. It is the most fun I have had playing on the 360 so far...
Summary: I don't see how anyone could possibly give this less than a 10! This is an absolutely an amazing deal. All of the games on it are highly detailed, original, and crazy fun. One of the best things about this is portal. It is a completely mind bending game, with a great sense of humor.
