  Team Fortress 2.........better than Brink!!

| | See all Sixpack's reviews (8)

Yes its the year 2012 and im telling you all this is still an Amazing Bargain , buy this even if you only play through Half life 2 and its expansion packs!

The main reason im bringing this game to everyones attention is TF2 (Team Fortress 2) , YES people still play it online for the PS3....there are lots of servers running it with plenty of people playing it and we need more and more people joining in the fun.....More maps would be appreciated but i personally think the basic version is loads of fun........Just remember to join a Europe Server and not a USA server or you will experience lag/skipping.

+ Portal is very Witty and a good challenge, ingenious puzzle game.

  Should have been a product recalll

I enjoyed Half Life 2 and Portal - both great games - but then I started to play Half Life 2 episode 1, and a big pink and black chequered cloud obscured my view.

This is because EA ported the Orange Box pack instead of Valve, and coded the port so badly that technical issues such as this blighted the PS3 port of this popular PC game pack.

This pack should not have been sold , there should have been a product recall.

As it is, EA say it is up to Valve to produce a patch, and Valve direct people to EA customer service to get a patch; and no patch was ever produced to mitigate the technical issues which arose because of this bad port.

My advice is get this title on PC, not PS3.

  Buy it for Portal

This package is, beyond a doubt, the best value buy you'll ever make. Halflife provides a deep, thrilling FPS experience and team fortress provides endless hours of multiplayer fun, absolutely LOADS of people play it and its really easy to get used to.
The best part of this package is Portal, one of the best games Ive ever played. Its a physics based puzzle game, completely unique, that is just so immersive. By this I mean you will play it and you will not notice the time fly by as you solve confusing puzzles while listening to malicious yet humorous dailog from the games overseer watching you as you progress.

for £11.99 its a steal and youd be at a loss to not experience the orange box.

I give this game a 5/5 simply because its 3 great games, for the cost of a few pints and they will entertain you for weeks if not months.

  Shockingly brilliant

| | See all ianking's reviews (18)

Half-life 2: Well what can I say... all the episodes of Half-life on this great 5 game package are fully action-packed with all the adrenaline-pump you could wish for. A game of logic and skill, with an outstanding storyline... it is truly epic.
Portal: A great little blast of fun! Hours of fun (and thinking) to be had.
Team Fortress 2: What can be better than a cartoon multiplayer game with 9 very amusing characters to choose from that can go around taking out other players from over the world? This game will hit your funny bone hard and it is excellent to play with a few friends to add to the laughter!
Buy The Orange Box! I cannot stress it enough!

  5 STAR FPS

| | See all apmcfc88's reviews (7)

i bought this game about a year ago and let it gather dust as i just didn't fancy it (the big square headed guy on the front looked s**t).
But after a couple of chapters play i realised it is top class. right up there with some of the best fps. however it is obviously a pc made game. many ps3 users wont have played games of this style. (kind of like halo mixed with fallout.)
The game is probably not for amateur gamers as it demads alot of patience and logic to work your way through some of the levels (there is no map guidance, only homing beacons, sometimes and no objective menu) and (on hard) the combat aspect is challenging. GREAT VALUE.

  Awesome game

| | See all OZmond187's reviews (1)

take it badninja is one of those xbox geeks as this game is awesome on ALL platforms. naturally as on ps3 its blu ray rather than dvd based game so graphically its awesome - then there is Portal....need i say more!? One of, if not the best puzzle games around. as its now 12.99 on ps3 just makes it even better

  DECENT

  Great!!!

| | See all rambosven's reviews (2)

Great game. In my opinon its the best 1st person shooter ever. I got this on pc first but loved it so much i brought it on ps3 aswell plus it was cheap. The pc version is slightly better as you can play counter strike which is fantastic and deathmatch, but this is still a superb game if you love your console games. If you love first person shooters buy this now.
