loganhallfin's Orange Box, The (PC) review

You can't go wrong with The Orange Box

Seriously I hate really short detail-less reviews. But theres no point in even trying here.

If your reading this your either bored or you want to confirm that yes the game is really that good, or your thinking about buying it.

Time to stop thinking.

Odds are near 100% you already know what Half Life and Half Life 2 are well this awesome box comes like Half Life 2 / HL2 Episode 1 and Episode 2. This already is a huge value as Half life 2 is about 15 hours and each episode is geared twoards 5 hours.

Also included in the orange box is Portal, a little puzzle player that is the rage of gamers around the world, and unexpected super hit, and diservidly so, its an awesome, hillarious, super fun to play FPS-style puzzle solver where you shoot portals to solve puzzles. Its very short really only about 3 hours BUT when the game is over it isnt over as there are more challenges to face.

And Last but not least is Team Fortress 2. An online only team-class based FPS. Its got a unquie style, great balance between classes, quick wit and quicker action. Honestly it might not appeal to everyone because it doesnt take itself seriously at all, but most people will probably just enjoy that aspect. Its fun and fast and easy to get into quick blasting action.

All of these games alone would receive 4 or 5 stars combined together they deserve at least 5, maybe 6.

The Half Life series has always had critical acclaim and the sequels HL2, Ep1 and Ep2 are no different. These three games continue the story and the gameplay to one of the best PC FPS series ever created. While there are some minor downsides to the HL2 episodes in that their rather short gameplay length and lack of any new weaponry etc can come across as boring. The emotional story, intense action ...

    Half life 2 alone is priceless, this package is brilliant. 0

    I played half life 2 a while back and i can't belive it took me so long to finally buy it. I've had the orange box for about 3 weeks and im not finished with it yet............here's a run down game buy game. Half life 2 - Stupendous entertainment value in one of the most critically acclaimed games ever. Brill graphics, simple yet engaging gunplay, frightening enemies, great level design, I got 20 hours from hl2 in one play through. An absolute essential........5/5 HL2 episode 1 - this is just ...
