5.0 out of 5 stars
King Of The Shooters, 28 Jan. 2008
What a shame that The Orange box came out at a time when the market was saturated with first person shooters. Halo, Bio-Shock, Call Of Duty 4 and The Darkness, to name but a few. So what's the point of playing a game that was already released last year, and surrounded by these classy shooters?
Where the hell do I start? Not only do you get Half-Life 2 in it's entirety, but the two expansion packs as well! Stand alone, Half-Life 2 is one of the greatest games ever made. there are no generic levels of mindless shooting here(al-la Halo, Call Of Duty, etc;), but a thinking mans action masterpiece that grips you like a vice, and refuses to let go. When you finally take that chopper down after hours of bombarding you, you'll get the kind of endorphine rush that computer games probably shouldn't be giving you. Not only that but hours of Half-Life expansion goodness, a mind bendingly addictive puzzle game (Portal), and the classic online shooter series, Team Fortress 2.
5 games, one price, all classics. Gordon Freeman re-takes his crown as the king of 1st person shooters with style.
Master Chief? Never heard of him!
