Now that I have your attention.

The Orange Box has 5 games in it. Half Life 2, Half Life 2 Episode 1, Episode 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2

Story : The story is great for the Half Life games. The story is also great for Portal even though you have to get cake. I am not giving out any spoilers.

Gameplay : The Gameplay in Half Life 2 is just like any other FPS. The controls are great but when controlling the car or boat, it could get slugish. The gameplay in Portal is innovative. You have 2 portals and you try to solve puzzls with the portals. Its great. The game takes about 2 hours to complete. There are also some challenges when you complete it.

The gameplay in Team Fortress 2 is awesome. Its the multiplayer component of the Orange Box. Unlike Halo and COD, you could pick any member from the team from Scout to Spy. They have different weapons and different abilities like...

Scout - Runs fast, double jumps, has a baseball bat, has low life bar.
Soldier - Rocket launcher, walks slow, and has a shovel, has a high life bar.
Pyro - Flame thrower, jogs, has an axe, has a medium life bar.
Demoman - Grernade launcher, sticky bombs, a beer bottle, jogs, medium life bAR
Heavy - Turret, slowest, Has the highest life bar, uses fist.
Engineer - Makes turrets and other stuff, jogs, construction thing??? A medium life bar
Medic - medicine gun, heals people, jogs, surgery knife thing, medium health bar
Sniper - Sniper, jogs, jungle knife thing.
Spy - jogs, sapper, invisibility, clones himself, low health bar.

Even though they have 6 maps and they eaCH hold a different gameplay style, this is more replayable than Halo and COD ( IMO )

Graphics : Half Life 2 graphics are like computer graphics. The Portal graphics are nice but the Team Fortress 2 graphics look like a masterpiece. Not like Killzone 2. It has a cartoony look.

Sound : ITS GREAT!!!!!!!

Overall : Pick this one up. One of the best Xbox 360 games ever. VERY UNDERRATED!!!!

You guys are getting worse than N4G and PSU with your purposely misleading titles.

I love The Orange Box, but how about we make it a habit from now on of actually putting the name of the game we're reviewing as the title instead of misleading everyone?

Still, awesome review. I plan on transitioning from TOB on the 360 to TOB on the PC.

ITS A QUOTE FROM THE GAME!!!! You know, with the Spy taunt with his gun saying " I was never really on your side ". That is why I did that.

Of course that's why you did that. I know it's a quote from Team Fortress 2, but it seemed to help your situation pretty well, didn't it? Razz
