5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing rhymes with Orange... October 10, 2007
By drkool
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
They say nothing rhymes with Orange... but what about PWNage!? I guess that doesn't either. But it should! This game rocks!

Team Fortress 2 is worth the price of admission for this instant classic collection. The team play is deep and instant. You really find people pairing up as medic and heavy to mow down a field of scouts and engineer turrets. Or people switching classes to fill in a defensive gap. THe healer class is greta fun as is the support engineer. They game is very well balanced with each class able to counter another.

The voice acting is hilarious and the charater models are gorgeous. This game will be played years to come, as the graphics are so highly stylized they will age with grace. The depth of each player class and the differing play modes make for a truly engrossing experience. Mix in some achievements, point capturing, Steam's new robust online community, in-game VOIP and you have a stellar game experience worth $50 alone. But wait theres more!

The price is simply amazing. Easily the best deal in gaming available out there! Half Life 2 was great and episode 1 continued that excitement. Portal proves to be great and a fresh take on puzzles, this time in 3D. Episode 2 will be great as well.

I am happy i purchased this game and have been able to play Team Fortress 2 for the Steam beta period. I will not stop playing for a long long time! Great work Valve!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great package for those who are new to HL2 December 4, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, so I'll admit to being one of the five people that hasn't even touched Half Life 2 until now. I did play through the original Half Life, and its difficulty (especially in the later stages) was a bit of a turn-off. Personally, I think that when the game practically necessitates cheating to complete it, it's a bit too much. That said, seeing this bundle on the store shelf was a bit too good of a deal to pass up, so I picked it up.

First impressions on the game design- the physics is more heavily involved in gameplay than in any other shooter before or since. In fact, in many cases the gameplay seems to FOCUS on the physics, not on killing enemies. To underscore this, you can actually finish most of the game with only the gravity gun, which (except in rare cases) can't kill anything directly but can pick up objects to throw at enemies. This is an interesting departure from the norm, but there are times when I think they took it a bit too far. Typically, you'll start off killing enemies and will have the normal frantic bursts of action, but you'll eventually run into a puzzle. These are usually something as simple as a locked door or elevator, and you simply (or not) have to open it or turn it on. Most of the puzzles can be figured out given a reasonable amount of effort on the player's part, but there are a few that will undoubtedly frustrate to the point where you simply look it up. I guess this is fine, so long as you aren't highly averse to cheating in such a fashion. I will say, when you do get where you're going, you do feel a sense of accomplishment at having figured it out.

The game's graphics are pretty good even for now, and voice acting is well done. The environments are well made and look realistic in a sort of grim alien/post-apocalyptic style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection To Those New to Half Life 2 June 29, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Orange Box and its games have gotten over a hundred rewards, and for good reason. Considering that the collection is now on Amazon for $30, I highly recommend that you get this collection if

A) You're a fan of FPS gameplay
B) You don't already have the games

Half Life 2, by and large, is a great game. The story is great, the action intense, and it definitely has plenty of great moments. If you're skeptical, I suggest downloading the Half Life 2 demo and trying the game out.

Graphically, there's not much to complain about. It is not Crysis, but considering the age of the game, I wouldn't be surprised. It runs smoothly on my system (Athlon 64 3700, 2 gigs DDR 400 ram, Geforce 6800 GT 256 mb videocard).

Gameplay wise, as mentioned before, the game has plenty of good moments, though I don't see it as much of a breakthrough to me. The game gets better and more immersible in the included expansion packs however.

Portal is a very unique puzzle solving game. It is also very challenging (at least to me) and can thus be very frustrating. However, it is a rewarding game and I love the humor in it.

Team Fortress 2, unlike other online FPS games, is truly team based. It is the kind of game in which sides win or lose not because of a single maverick, but because of how well coordinated a team is. The classes are remarkably balanced and set in such a way that weaknesses and strengths are always complemented with other classes (hence making the game more team oriented).

Overall, the collection is definitely good and definitely worth the money. Half Life 2 is a great game, as is Portal and TF 2.

Some comments on the 3 new components of this 5 game package.

Episode 2...a worthy sequel to Episode 1...

In fact, qualities good enough (IMO) to think that it might have contended for single player, Game of the Year*, (however, its shorter overall length would probably preclude this honor.)

This game was all that I'd hoped for; it has some great battles, an extended car driving component, an interesting new weapon (towards the end), a compelling story line, a hint of humor and a touching, emotional ending.

In addition, it has smooth flowing graphics, well sync'd voice and lip movement and a few interesting puzzles. Also, the way the other characters (i.e. Alyx, Dr. Vance etc.) watch you and turn their bodies to adjust to your position (Freeman) is remarkable; very realistic.

My only small complaint would be that the first quarter of the game was a little drawn out and repetitious; however this is only a minor concern in an otherwise incredible PC game.

Easily 5 Stars...more if I could.

*****

Portal...quirky and different but fun!

A rather unique, single player puzzle game that involves going in and out of doors; doors you make with (what else), your portal gun. However, this task is not quite as easy as it sounds; to accomplish your goals you must use strategies of lateral thinking, timing and momentum to get through all 19 different levels. Of course the challenges become more complicated as you progress and to win the game (and escape), you must defeat the increasingly neurotic test-facility robotess in the finale. Great fun!
