More than just a Half Life vehicle, The Orange Box is truly an essential purchase for anyone who considers themselves a video game fan. All five of the games on the disc are well worth having in their own right and as a bundle it is a veritable box of delights!
The Hut are currently offering the disc for just £9.93, a fantastic deal that means you get five brilliant games for less than £2 a-piece! The next best price for The Orange Box is more than £3 more expensive: £13.37 from 101 CD.
Half Life's Gordon Freeman was recently voted the Greatest Game Hero of all time in a Gamespot mega poll. If you need your knowledge of the great man refreshed then how better than by playing through Half Life 2 and the two episodes included in The Orange Box? Each instalment is utterly gripping, loads of fun and beautifully presented.
Then of course there is the surprise gem of the set, Portal. This action puzzler is both hilarious and disturbing in equal measure. The gameplay is challenging but addictive and once you get into the zone you can blast through the stages until you once again hit a puzzle that fries your brain.
Team Fortress 2 is the game I have given the least time to but I can safely say that it is an excellent multiplayer romp, ideal for online shenanigans. The graphics are bold and unusual, the team focus can create some great, satisfying moments of joy and camaraderie and there is a really good range of classes to pick from.
