Anyone buying the Orange Box

Postby acsguitar » Mon Oct 08, 2007 6:47 pm

I'm not a huge HL2 fan but I've played the first and thought it was ok and HL2 ep1 i'm in the middle of..I think Team Fortress 2 looks really fun though.

I played through HL2, HL2Ep1, HL2Ep2, and Portal. I've messed around a bit on TF2, but I'm kind of all played out for now. Every game on the disc is awesome. In general, I'm pretty much tired of shooters, but once I started going on HL2, I didn't stop until I was through all of them. Episode 1 is the weakest section (but still fun) and Portal is a hidden gem. Portal's fun and weird and hilarious and a little creepy. And the end credits song is hilarious.

I've been playing a ton of TF2....SOOO much fun...I'm a spy like all the time and it rules.

HL2 EP2 looks great.

Portal I need to play a little bit when I wanna work my brain.

BTW I'm running at over 100fps with my 8800gts and 6000 x2

you still need HL2 to play it though right? TF2 is a HL2 mod, not a stand alone game, correct?

EDIT: nevermind, i found the stand alone TF2 on steam for $29.99. i am downloading it right now. thanks. :-)

After a few days of playing through all of the games in the Orange Box, I have come to the following conclusion; this is a great bargain. TF2 is a lot of fun, although I don't know how long that will last for, seeing as there only like 6 maps. The HL games are great, especially Episode 2. I probably had the most fun playing through Portal, the 2nd half of the game is great. I highly recommend that anyone with a 360 at least rent the Orange Box.
