GameTrailers.com review The Orange Box
Fantastic, not one mention of the PC version of the box.
... WHY NOT !!!
It is awsome and a MUST BUY.
PORTAL is wicked. Just when you think you are done, the fun just starts .. REALLY
i have a PS3 and the Orange Box is out on it next month if nothing happens like a xbot....wait bad idea to say that a xbot just might get the balls to do it.
I can only assume that was a piss poor attempt at a ignorant fanboy comment. Could you say it again in clear english with a complete sentence.
Xbot or not ... I am enjoying Orange box NOW .
The only part u got right about that is the fanboy part. If i was piss poor I wouldn't have a PS3 now would I? Good for you for getting a 360, but i'm going to enjoy the Orange Box when it comes out on the PS3.
9.3 is kinda low imo...when you compare it to their reviews of halo 3 and metroid (*not overall, 9.3 is a great score*)...not that they didnt deserve those scores, i just think orange box is at that level.
I NEVER PLAYED THE GAME AND JUST LOOKING AT THE VIDEO MAKES ME WANT TO PLAY IT, AND HALO SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOT RATED THAT HIGH, IT WAS A GOOD GAME BUT OVER ALL COMPARED TO GOW ITS NO WHERE THERE. HALO ONLY GOT GOOD REVIEWS COUSE OF ITS ONLINE PLAY AND THAT TAKES FOR EVER TO GET ON.
I would nominate Orange Box as GOTY if Half Life 2 hadn't won over 40 such awards when it was released! THIS IS A MUST OWN. Anyone who plays games must experience the awe that is Half Life 2. Graphics are pretty good for something that was released 3 years ago.
I'm playing it and it runs better than on my PC years ago, plus there's no tearing and smooth framerates except a couple times when there are lots of exploding barrels on-screen. I haven't even played Portal (except a few minutes) because I got sucked into Half Life 2 and I can't stop. I haven't played Folklore on PS3 or Skate on 360 yet (they're both sitting on my floor by the TV) because this game IS THAT GOOD!
It isn't close to HALO 3, you cant put old games in a package with other short games and say its on the level of HALO 3 that has endless options for both Single Player & Multi Player (Skulls & Forge).
Stop swinging on peoples nuts, HALO's story is fantastic and the single player is great.
Dude dont talk, I love halo (1, 2,& 3). I have beat all of the campaigns, numerous times, twice for halo 1, 3 times for 2, and twice again for Halo 3. Now I have never played Half Life at all...... then I bought Orange box and I am experiencing the greatest FPS I have ever had a chance to play.. It is years beyond halo...yes years......................... ...now mutliplayer is def another thing, but half life 2 rapes halo in story....If I had to give Halo 3 two scores
Campaign would get a 8.5/10
Multiplayer would get a 9.7/10
I am not done playing Half life 2 yet but no doubt is it much better than halo's story...with the exception of the warthog finishes of H 1&3
I'm going to sing praises to Half Life 2 on mountaintops! Let the world know the best FPS of all time!
PLEASE UNDERSTAND ... I Love Halo. It is a great story and draws you in ... BUT ... when it comes to story, kick azz environments, interaction with pretty much EVERYTHING, FPS THINKING rather than just run and gun .... the HALF-LIFE series is UNTOUCHABLE.
Once again, this is NOT to knock on Halo. I really really like it a boat load, but HL is one of the only FPS games TO DATE (and I have been playing for well over 25 years) to grab you by the hair, drag you into the world it creates and keeps your attention .... FULLY.
Don't take it as a slap or insult to Halo, look as it as another KILLER GAME that "IS" all that ... and a big azz bag of chips. Actually throw in a pizza as well.
NOW ... HERE IS THE NEGATIVE YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HALF-LIFE
If you ever try to tell yourself, wife, girlfriend ... "Well, I will just play for half and hour or so" ..... DON'T ... it is the sort of game, you start, then turn around and say .. "CRAP, I have been at this for over 4 hours now"
