5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Ever Game Deal!, 29 Nov 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Half-Life 2: The Orange Box (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I've have purchased and played thousands of Video games over the years, on many different gaming consoles. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, comes close to the greatness of the gaming package u get here. Let's start at the main game: Half-Life 2. This game is quite simply the finest FPS ever created. It beats even most of the current-gen games on graphics alone, let alone the magnificent gameplay and physics engine. What makes it so good is that the makers have created a disturbing George Orwellian future world where alien machines control man in parallel to how the world is changing in our OWN lives now! It is a warning of a totalitarian existence that could so easily happen if democracy is gradually eroded. What I love about this game is that is combines challenging puzzles, never telling you how to progress to the next area or what to do with the objects in front of you. You have to actually use your brain to guide you through this amazing game. It is never boring, because the huge environments and the gameplaying style can change dramatically with no warning. The sound is also incredible, evoking a nightmare future where we have no real control of our lives. The expansion episodes are also brilliant action games, following on nicely from Half Life 2. Then, if that was not enough, you have Portal and Team Fortress. Portal is very challenging on the brain as you have to use dimensional portals to get through the levels in a specific way. Team Fortress is one of the best Mutiplayer experiences ever created, too! I won't spoil it by talking about that too much. All I can say is that if you only buy one game for your new Xbox 360, then buy this! It will entertain you for months! THE GREATEST GAMING PACKAGE IN THE HISTORY OF GAMING!
