The Orange Box Movies See The PS3 Version In Action

IGN: "Once again players assume the role of Gordon Freeman, a scientist destined to save the Earth from hordes of gruesome alien attackers. Valve has created a fully realized world in Half-Life 2, with objects and characters that feature accurate physics properties, behaving with the appropriate mass, density, and physical properties of their real-life counterparts. Extremely intelligent computer AI result in enemies that plan, adapt, and respond to the player's actions.

The next-gen console version comes packed with bonuses in addition to the genre-expanding original Half-Life 2 game. Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two add-on levels are also on the disc, as are the stunningly complex puzzle game Portal and the online phenomenon Team Fortress 2".

Do not support this terrible port.

Its amazing that Infinity Ward, Epic, Naughty Dog, Insomniac, Incognito, free radical, and 2k can manage to make amazing games for the PS3. Yet EA is still dumbfounded.

This is not worth your 60.00

I agree with you, though I'm not too sure 2K deserves such praise yet since it hasn't given much cross platformers except some sports games.

I'm not saying people shouldn't buy this game, I mean some might not mind the occasion framerate dip (in the preview at least) in exchange for not having to upgrade their PC for good visuals. But being a smart consumer means knowing what products and brands to support. For example, I've been avoiding Starbucks due to their anti-labor practices.

This isn't as severe as that, but I think the way to ensure we get better games for the PS3 is to keep on buying games while avoiding the ones that are not up to a certain standard we should expect. When developers see PS3 owners buying games but avoiding theirs, they might finally take some more drastic measures to ensure their quality in the future. This goes for all developers who have recently been too eager on cashing in on the blooming gaming industry.

"When developers"


This is nothing more than a crappy pc developer who can't handle real next gen graphics hardware like the PS3 trying to milk some extra cash out of a few PS3 gullible owners by dumping their crappy old x86/DirectX code on some second rate dev team at EA and sending the crap out the door.

60dollars for what? a hl2mod(portal) & a short expansion pack(hl2:episode2) & Team Fortress 2 which is boring ass hell!
And last,Hl2,come on who haven't play'd through hl2 yet is a tard,it's older then my grampa.
Don't buy this sh!tbox!!!
PS:I'm not gonna say episode 1 becouse that's not even a game.
Well the same as portal.

Peace Out!

"60dollars for what?" how about a great value for money games pack.

I can't remember a game that has ever amazed me as much as Portal - it totally turns the usual game thought process on it's head.

TF2 is fun hellafun online and "boring" is the last word I would use to describe it.

Lots of console users won't have played HL2 yet simply because it is old - that doesn't make them a tard. Also for an old game it holds up pretty well to modern shooters.

PS lots of other people enjoy this game as well - why do you care if they buy it or not?

Seriously u guys are letting the fanboys trick u. This game isnt running bad AT ALL... I will try this. You d be stupid to miss this with the framerate dropping only half a second every 5 minutes... It ran pretty good. See how many drops u can see. I found 2.

Yea its just because of install base and it wont stay that way... everyone knows PS3 will be out very long thing are changing... still u can tell they tried... it runs way better than Madden 08

I cant stand some of u stupid fanboys. This game does NOT look like a horrible port... are u just talking sh!t for the sake of it ar did u even watch the video? They will still get very good scores.

My point is that it could have been running better if Valve didn't outsource it to another developer to reduce development cost for themselves. I mean if they see that PS3 owners don't care about getting a delayed game that is not performing better to justify the delay, I don't see what will stop them from doing so again.

Unreal Tournament 3 for me.

kingofps33949d ago

Me as well. Even though, Im might still pick up Orange Box

gamesblow3949d ago

I've played Half life for 2 years now, or more... Hell, I lost track. I'll pass. I'm playing Half Life 2 at full speed and it looks 3x that of the xbox 360 version and probably 4x's that of the ps3 version. I'm not paying for it again. I'll pass all together. Unreal 3 is where my money is. An honest job well done to Epic. It better be good to pull me away from Warhawk and Resistance, though. "ha"
