    Great value, lots of fun to be had.

    The Orange Box is a collection of Valve Software developed games which includes:

    • Half-life 2 with HL2: Episode One, Episode Two - collectively almost the length of two whole games. The episodes help to expand the mythology that HL2 is introducing giving you a more epic feel to the universe. Though, Episode One is just kinda "so so" Episode Two picks up a great deal more and leaves you hanging in the end.
    • Portal - a fantastic game in it's own right. though very short, it is big on satisfying almost everything a gamer wants in games today. It features unique gameplay mixed within immersive (made up gamer word) storytelling.
    • Team Fortress 2 - An online only, team based game. Though i haven't played much of this one the overall design of it alone is inspiring and is a joy ( for those who care about such things) to just go through the developer commentary.

    Overall there's something  for everyone in this pack and it is a winning combination.

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 ...
