my thoughts exactly (although EA did this port). couldnt get into it myself - perhaps i should play half life 1. team fortress 2 and portal are quite good though. good value for money if you like these games.
#4
A good price for 5 games, even if a few of them aren't the longest or modernest games ever. Worth it for HL2+Ep1+Ep2 alone, never mind Portal and TF2. Brilliant deal, one which every PS3 owner should have.
#5
Left 4 Dead is awful too.
#6
I hear what you say about Valve and, yes they are ***********...but the Orange box is great value for money and hot at this price.
I finished all of the games except Team Fortress which didn't interest me.

In regards to the much hyped problems, these were hardly noticable.
#7
Worth it just for Portal
#8
Why all the Valve hate? What are you all playing that's so superior? I've played and enjoyed every game in this pack, albeit on PC, even TF2 clicked with me a few weeks ago after enduring a bit of trial by fire before I mastered the ins and outs of the classes.

I'm guessing sparc just might be a PS3 fanboy.

Valve are well known for having a history of making great games. Yes, they don't develop games for the PS3 but that's no need to say their games aren't any good. The Half-Life series is generally regarded as one of the best series of games ever. I guess everyone's wrong and you're right.

Even though this EA port of The Orange Box isn't perfect, it's still great value at this price.

Absolute rubbish (What this guy is saying).

This game is brilliant especially for this price. The campaign for Half life 2 alone is massive, and then you have all the other games to play.

Just be careful buying from Play.com as they have a tendency to send you games from other areas of Europe without telling you, which you won't be able to trade in at places like Gamestation and Game (Should you wish to)

sneaky ********

Voted hot, portal is worth a tenner.

Coming from a liverpudlian. :roll:

Is the port of this on the PS3 as bad as I've heard, is episode 2 of half life even playable?
#15
Great price, I'm playing through HL2 and that's a good port as far I'm concerned

Valve do suck, completely over-rated, i've not enjoyed the half life series, nor the counter strike series.

Wanna play a real FPS? Play COD4 and you'd all get owned.

But still, good deal as this is the cheapest it has been, voted hot.

This is indicative of everything wrong in videogaming these days.....too many serious fps obsessed peeps. Or harcore gamers as they like to call themselves. I bet he would pull the connection if he was getting pwned.

Probably wouldn't give a great game like Metroid prime a chance because it's on a "baby" console......"shakes head and longs for the past" :lol:

Absolute bargain.

I agree with the above two posts by the way, that post was truly terrible.

Don't be surprised if you don't like it. Valve did not make the PS3 version of the orange box. They palmed production of it over to EA because they can't be doing with the PS3 development process. I haven't played the PS3 version but I have read it is nothing compared to the PC (proper) version and in fact is quite poor (but for this price who cares). Moving on...

Valve Trashing

The half life series of games in my view are some of the best ever created and have been influential to the gaming community. If you look at them as a story and then play through the story its just an increddible gaming experience. I firmly believe though it is one for the PC and not a console, be it 360 or PS3.

COD4 was an amazing game; very in your face, sudden, shocking and gives you a sensory overload, but you don't have to think to be able to play it. You just shoot and follow instruction like some mindless automaton, maybe that’s why others think it would "own" HL.

If HL sucked so much then why is the original half life which is 11 years old now, being redeveloped and given a new more modern (though not cutting edge) engine, for re-release? I doubt very much that will happen to, too many other games that are out there right now. One final note which is, since its release over 10 years ago Half Life ONE has sold on average 1 million copies each year since 1998 and that does not include digital distribution through a system like steam. So yeah I guess half life sucks big time. Fair enough not liking a game, or even a developer, but don't be so narrow minded as to trash such success in such a bitter and distorted way - go buy a wii.

COD4 is good for n00bs like you. you wouldn't last 5 mins on CSS

Ok, to cut through the rediculous ranting here. In a nutshell this box is perfect for anyone who cannot experience Valve games on their PC for whatever reason. Yes there are frame rate problems with this PS3 version due to the sloppy conversion done by EA, however I'm sure it wouldn't distract from the overall experience. At 9.99 you can't really go wrong, even with the lack of updates issued by Valve missing from the disc. Heat added.
#24
I've got this and at this price it's superb value. TBH, It's worth it just for Portal, but Half Life 2 is an absolutely amazing game as well.

Just buy it.
#25
A great price for a fantastic bundle of games. I'd be hard pushed to name any developers that come even close to emulating Valve's quality.
#26
if only it had counter strike source

That really is the most lame sentence i've ever read on here
As a 100% obsessed COD4 fan I would like to apologise for that tremendously cringeworthy post, and say that not all people who play the game are like that person.
HL2 is one of the best campaigns I've ever played. It's storyline and pure length alone make COD4's campaign look like a joke as it took me about 37 hours to complete as opposed to COD4s measily 4 hour effort. The story is compelling and the levels are so well designed, it's obvious a tonne of work has gone into HL2 alone.

Oh then theres the extra HL episodes, Portal, AND Team fortress (which are all worth over a tenner each themselves)

BUY IT!!!:thumbsup:
