The only reason it's not 5 stars is because this PS3 port is graphically not quite as good as a PC version, even after Valve stepped in and patched it themselves. (The original developer Valve hired to port this game to the PS3 initially put out a bug-laden version, but Valve jumped in personally and fixed it as best they could.)
But if you only have a PS3 and not a PC, then get this package. You won't regret it. If you have a PC, then buy it there from Steam instead. It's a slightly better version graphically.
Portal was a awesome experience even though it was short but there is a squeal that I have yet to check out but if its any think like its predecessor its got to be good, I'm not usually one for games that strictly focuses on puzzles but this one makes an exception with the dark story that unfolds and the funny AI, I don't see anyone having a problem with this title.
Team Fortress 2 is an online game only witch is a little disappointing if your going with out but not so much that it takes away from the whole rest of the excitement. I found this game (the little that I did play of it) nothing to ground breaking but you shouldn't ignore it either. It's same online shoot em up, ya pick a character class witch is quite varied i might add and you go kill people while trying to complete an objective. This is just my personal gripe but there are still thousands of people playing even how old this game is. This set is for any and all -Ryder Wilson
(PEOPLE COMPLAINED ABOUT POOR LOADING TIMES BUT I'LL ADDRESS THEM AT THE END OF THIS REVIEW)
Portal is sort of a short game but it is a lot of fun. Towards the end of the game, you have to find your way through the level and then use your skills to finish the game in a way that I won't say (to avoid spoiling it). I beat the game in 2 days (maybe 4-5 hours of playing it), mainly because i was really excited about it. I'm getting Portal 2 in the mail sometime anyway. The game definitely has a lot of replayability. Once you beat the game, you can go back and replay most of the levels but with goals such as "fastest time" or "least amount of portals." An advanced mode is also added once you beat the game. Advanced mode basically plays the same level but with pieces of the level missing, like less amounts of walkable areas, or less walls that you can shoot portals onto. I also really enjoyed the humor of the game and the end game credits were pretty funny as well.
Team Fortress 2 is fun. I have only had a PS3 for about 6 months, so i was a COD and battlefield player right off the bat. It is honestly a little bit difficult to pick up the controls for this (from the perspective of playing COD) but it doesnt take too long to get used to it. Its not splitscreen, which is stupid in my opinion, but it is still playable. The playable characters all have different abilities that can help your team. This is personally my least favorite game out of the whole Orange Box, though. It only has online multiplayer mode, and NOTHING ELSE. Still, if you averaged the price of the Orange Box to all 5 of the games, each game is worth ten dollars. Team Fortress 2 is definitely worth 10$. I haven't played it a lot but I most likely will once I'm done with all the other games on the disc.
The HalfLife2 saga is pretty cool so far. I'm currently in the first one and have heard good things about the sequels. I dont want to play episode 1 and 2 until I'm done the original halflife2, so I can't really give feedback about those yet. You can have a variety of weapons and you also get the good old crowbar from the previous game on older consoles. I wish the original halflife was playable on ps3(besides backwards compatible ones, since mine is not). You fight monsters, robots, and guys in creepy costumes. I did not play the first halflife, but i looked up outlines about it on the internet, as well as some gameplay portions. Halflife 2 has decent graphics and great background music that plays and just the right times. I look forward to completing the entire halflife2 collection since it is a fun game that sort of lets you figure out how to get from place to place as you fight off hoards of enemies and avoid exploding barrels.
Overall, this is a great deal. The price is great for the value and I highly recommend buying this.
LOAD TIMES FOR THE GAME ARE SORT OF ANNOYING, BUT IT DEFINITELY DOES NOT NEGATIVELY AFFECT GAME PLAY. YOU CAN "QUICKSAVE" GAMES AT ANY TIME, WHICH ENABLES YOU TO SET YOUR OWN PERSONAL CHECKPOINTS IN THE GAME. THE LOAD TIMES COME AT TIMES THAT ARE NOT INCONVENIENT AND DONT TAKE LONGER THAN 10 SECONDS FOR THE PS3.
I was worried about buying this because I heard that the game was originally for xbox360, but since it was ported to the PS3, it has horrible lagtimes that take to load, and it makes the game unbearable. THIS IS NOT TRUE, SO DONT WORRY ABOUT IT.
