A recent preview on the PlayStation 3 version of Valve's The Orange Box was less than kind. Sure, the PS3 edition of Portal seems fine, but the adventures of Gordon Freeman were given a lashing. Terms "downright unplayable", "slideshow" and "substandard" were peppered throughout the preview of the Half-Life 2 portions of the collection. Many days late and frames per second short, PS3 owners were finally getting a stinker of a port from EA UK. Recent previews from IGN and Gamespy, however, paint a slightly less depressing picture.
