Seriously. This game is perfect. 5 games for the price of one, and all of them are good as hell. Anything with then title "Half-Life" on it is usually of unnaturally high quality.

-Misodus quote

All five games are fantastic! Overall value is incredible. I would have payed this price just for portal alone. This package is a must have. I have played through all of the half life games and portal. Just getting started on TF2. It is the most fun I have had playing on the 360 so far...

Review It's really within the gameplay and narrative that the Half-Life 2 package in The Orange Box shines. While you'll never feel completely confident that you know everything going on within the storyline, Valve's approach to both narrative and design is quite unique. At times, you'll be presented with a puzzle, and while it might seem a tad confusing, things always seem to fall together after a minute or so of searching. It's a refreshing change from the copy/paste level design of some other shooters, and it helps this series stand out...Even though The Orange Box deserves accolades regarding the amount of "bang for your buck," it's really about quality here, not quantity. Aside from the fact that you're receiving five games on one disc, the craftsmanship that has gone into each of these titles rears its head with every Antlion you shoot, every high-velocity portal transfer you make, and every sentry gun you assemble.
