This game merits the 60 dollars you pay for it. Right from the get-go you already know you have 5 games included, all of which are extremely high quality. Half-Life 2 is one of the best FPS games I have ever played. Utilizing a groundbreaking physics engine and a captivating storyline, HL2 (Half Life 2) and it's episodes alone merit a purchase of this title.
If that's not enough for you, then Portal will help. Portal is yet another groundbreaking title made by Valve. Portal is a puzzle game where you navigate through levels to the exit using a portal gun, which will shoot portals throughout the level. This new take on puzzle games kept me captivated until the end.
Team Fortress 2 is a superb multiplayer which is included in The Orange Box. Classes and teamwork are critical in achieving your objectives. You can't just charge out blindly on your own (although that is fun), you must rely on your teammates to watch your back. It contains a wide range of classes from a sneaky spy (who can camoflague himself to look like the enemy) to a pyro (if you like your adversaries thoroughly cooked.)
The games have very few flaws. Team Fortress 2 can sometimes have bad loading times and enemies in Half Life 2 have a bad problem of "popping up." However these minor problems shouldn't deter you from purchasing this great 360 title.
Let me just start off by saying....WOW! I've been playing video for over 20 years and I must say that Portal has to be the most original game i have ever played. I love everything about it. Yes, it may be a simple concept for a game, but its like the coolest puzzle game i have ever played. Even Half Life 2 with both episodes, are smooth and fun and in my eyes a more mature game than the Halo trilogy. Team Fortress 2 is just out right fun to play with a character selection and the amount of depth each character has, is just awesome. Fun fun game! Play it NOW.
TF is back for old school FPS'ers. That alone was worth the 60.00 - TF is a great CTF game, that is class based. If you've ever felt frustrated running around in Halo looking for a stupid gun - TF is for you!! go go go!
