Orange Box Reviewed in Full


Also there's some multiplayer, standard fast pace Deathmatch, emulates absolutely none of the feeling from the single player game, but all of the challenge, as you die about every ten seconds.

Next weeks review will be by Arvas, and it will be on Left 4 Dead. Look for it Sunday (5/24/09)...

The Orange Box


Justin Fassino: So The Orange Box might just be the greatest deal in gaming history: the Half-Life 2 complete series, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. It's like Valve decided to break down all the elements of a video game (single-player, multiplayer, and...

MD: Oh, most certainly. Don't let the awful box art fool you, this game is worth your money, time, and adoration. It is a mighty fine example of bringing together a great deal of high quality games in one package. A must own most in every sense of the...

The Orange Box Review


Countless delays, new product inclusions, old product inclusions and so much more surrounded the development of The Orange Box, one has to wonder what there really is to offer. We'll take a look inside the latest offering from Valve and see what...

The Orange Box is huge, it delivers on so many fronts that it really has no direct competition, the retail box includes Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2. Given the pricing structure of the game it...

The Orange Box


It must have sounded crazy in the planning sessions – “How about we take a three-year-old game, a couple of sorta sequels to it, a strange little puzzle game, and a sequel to a free game and throw it all on one disc and see who buys it?” “Uh… sure…...

Five games on one disc ; Graphics in Half-Life are better than many "modern era" games ; Portal leaves you wanting more - the mark of a great game

Load times in Half-Life are too long and break up the action ; Portal is too short ; No straight-up deathmatch in Team Fortress 2

There are a few quibbles with The Orange Box, but they are very, very small. The load times in Half Life 2 are too long and they interrupt the flow of the game. Portal is too short (barely over two hours long!). There is no straight deathmatch in...

Portal is the first major advance in puzzle gaming since Russians started dropping blocks

All these for one price? Thanks!; Portal is the start of something bigger, and we can’t wait

Pop-up sometimes spoils HL2’s very tangible world

How will EA deliver Episode Three on 360? Will it be the first downloadable game?

The Orange Box


Valve's five-game package is an outstanding indoctrination into the Half-Life universe for console gamers.

Five amazingly well-crafted games on one disc; TF2 will keep you playing well after you've beaten the others

Half-Life 2 games suffer from occasional framerate stutters and issues; Portal is very brief

The Orange Box review


Since its release back in 2004, I have always wanted to play Half-Life 2. Originally on the PC and then ported to Xbox, I never got a chance to play what we could consider the first next-gen game of this generation. Now that I have had a chance to play...

Rarely is there a game that I have played as thoroughly as I have The Orange Box. I took my time, beating Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and Portal, and put in a decent amount of time with Team Fortress 2. I think I am...

The Orange Box Xbox 360 Review


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...

The Orange Box is an amazing bargain and all five games are quality through and through. Simply put, we can’t recommend it enough, so if you’re an FPS fan you'd be crazy to let this pass you by, in fact you would be completely insane to miss out on...

Expert review by: Yug (

The Orange Box


Yug takes apart the latest compilation from Valve to see if the package is worth the sum of it's parts. Short answer - hell yes.

5 excellent games in one package, same excellent physics engine, Team Fortress 2 provides genuinely satisfying team based multiplayer combat, Episode 2 features large battles and set pieces and leaves you wanting more, Portals is innovative and...

At least 3 of these games are relatively short, Source engine is starting to look a bit dated, If you don't like online FPS games you probably still won't get into Team Fortress 2, Episode 2 suffers from middle child syndrome and occasionally lacks...

There is something for everyone in this game, whether you're an existing Half Life 2 fan or not. Simply put - you will be doing yourself a disservice as a gamer if you do not pick this one up, with Portals in particular being a defining gaming experience.
