Top Customer Reviews
The art style for a decade old game is very impressive as well. You see how the world is on the brink of total devastation that brings you to a total investment of the game. It has great facial animation for the characters you see down the line. Very L.A Noire if you ask me with the facial animations. This game has aged very well since its first release back in 2004. It can go toe to toe with even some of the more recent video games being released. I just have to give credit where credit is do. Valve did an awesome job with the source engine.
I have to mention the sound Half life 2 has because this is one of the most important parts in a game that separates an okay game with something that will totally hook you in from the start. The enemys have a very creepy noise to them and if you know what a zombie headcrab is then you know what I mean by just a creepy sounding enemy. The combine solders wear this type of gas mask and sounds just like Bane from the batman movie when they talk. They also have walkie talkys that sounds just like a real walkie talkie. When you kill them you can even hear the Combines HQ trying to get a hold of them. Sounds very realistic in my opinion. The soundtrack is also one of my favorite video game soundtracks I have ever heard. The music as a very well made and just invests you even more into the game. Believe you me you will just stop and listen just to take it all in.
I know It sounds like I'm praising it but there are some flaws, very minor but I feel I have to mention them. If you plan on purchasing this game for the consoles be aware of load times. A friend of mine plays the ps3 version and told me they are extremely long and kind of takes him out of the experience a bit. The 360 version has load times that are a bit slow but they rarely ever took me out of the atmosphere this game provides. There is a bit of frame-rate drops here and there on the 360 but not as much as the ps3.
Now I'm going to talk a little bit about Portal and Team Fortress 2. Portal is a well made puzzle action game that kind of took me by surprise. I'm not that big into puzzle games myself but Portal gave me this Euphoria rush every time I completed a puzzle. At first they are easy enough but when you progress through the story they get trickier and trickier. Well paced I might add It's not like it was completely easy then all of a sudden the difficulty ramps up and you either have to look up how to complete a puzzle or you just stop playing. Nothing like that, it is well paced. The computer A.I named Glados is a big part of the story. She at first seems as if she is trying to help you but more further in the story you can tell she is trying to kill you. Her dialogue knocks it out of the park for me and had me chuckling every opportunity I heard her voice. Glados has that very animatronic voice that sounded like she was calm when in reality she was trash talking the whole time.
Team Fortress 2 was the least played game out of the bundle.... Well just because at the time I really was not into the whole team based shooter genre. I'm proud to admit I was a dummy for not giving this game a chance. At first it is a bit tricky because it's quite difficult to kill people if you don't play the role you choose. For example there are 10 classes you can choose. Very addictive multiplayer. I have only put an hour or two in so I'm not gonna tell you stuff I don't know. If you read my review this long I thank you for taking the time to read my review of atleast most of the orange box. Hope I helped you understand a little bit more about this package. I really do think you should pick this game up what are you waiting for?
Half-Life 2: Normally I'm not in to shooters (I'm more of a Mario person. I like quirky fun), but everything about this game is intuitive. The controls are great, the dialogue is great, and there aren't even any annoying cut-away scenes. All the characters speak to you as you play. And before you call this a shoot 'em up game, it should be noted that a lot of this game is actually puzzle solving (picking your way through a dangerous landscape, timing enemy attacks, using game physics to your advantage, ect) Four and a half stars
Portal: Would be one of the best games ever were it not so short, but at this price I'm not complaining. Funny, challenging, intuitive, unique, this game is simply fantastic. Aside from the length, I see no flaws here. Five stars
Team Fortress 2: If you have a Gold account, this game will give you a lot of fun. Choose a class of character, and use their abilities to achieve your goal. Be an engineer and build turrets to defend your base; become a spy and disguise yourself as the other team; maybe you want to be a pyro and burn everyone to ashes with your flame-thrower? Do all that and more. The cartoon violence will sate your gaming appetite for hours. Four stars
For this price, you'd have to be daft not to buy it
