The "Half Life 2: Orange Box" is both a brilliant package of games, and a brilliant deal. With the great advantage that it includes both previous episodes of Half Life 2, a newcomer to the series does not have to worry about purchasing the predecessors separately. However the experienced Half...

“The Orange Box (xbox 360)”

Pro5 fantastic games in one

Consnone so far

This review is for the xbox 360 version of the game. I'd never played any of the Half-Life games before this one, so I only knew the titles by reputation. But what a reputation. With 5 games included in the package, The Orange Box promises a lot but I'm pleased to say that it delivers it all...

For those who haven't yet experienced Half-Life 2, I would urge you to go out and get it now. But if you require a bit more convincing, here's a low-down on everything The Orange Box contains. Half-Life 2, Episode 1, Episode 2 The main single player component comes in the form of Half-Life 2, and...

“Five great games in one”

published 22/11/2009

ProSuperb value, classic games, variety in the titles

ConsPortal and Episode One are fairly short

The Orange Box is a compilation of five Valve games, that was released in 2007. Please be aware that I am only talking about the PC version. Back in 2007, I received this as a Christmas present and I know it was less than £20 at the time. I've found it available new today for just £12.99. This is...

3 words! BUY THIS GAME!!!! I was able to pick this game up for £27 and wow wasn't it worth it. To be honest if I had brought it for £50 I would still be over the moon with the value. This is 5 games in 1. The first 3 games are Half-life 2, Half-Life 2 episode 1 and episode 2. To be honest I've...

Im going to do this nice and quickly, Graphics; The graphics are nothing less than superb in this game. It is easy to run it on mid range computers in better graphics settings than other games currently allow. Sound; The sound in the game is mediocre, there are no sound effects that make you pay much attention. When it comes to sound it is just the same old. Playability Overall the playability is good. the storyline is as good as is possible with a FPS Adventure and feels very linear at times. Overall If you are a potential customer then buy it you will not be disappointed with the amount of games available on the 2 discs. Excellent value for money from a relatively cheap game.

Wow! This game is awsome. Well, I should actually be saying games because it comes with about 4 different games, which I loved all. First I'll talk about Portal, This is a story only game and it's not action packed it's more of a FPS strategy game. You have to find your way around the levels to the next level. Now Half-Life 2 Episode 1 and 2 are also story mode games and these two games are sequels to Half-Life 2. The story mode for these games are just awsome and the story is also good. Team Fortress 2 is a really great multiplayer game which allows you to choose you class. It is a fast paced multiplayer game which you will enjoy a lot just like me.
