The Orange Box Opinions

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So I keep getting told that Team Fortress 2 is an awesome game so I'm tempted to get it. It's $19.99 on Steam and the Orange Box is $29.99. Is getting the box worth it? Also, what are your opinions on TF2?

Orange Box is one of the best deals ever.

Half-Life 2 and all of its expansions, worth $20 by itself.
Portal is awesome. And TF2 is awesome as well.

10 more for Half-Life2, Ep1+Ep2, and Portal?

Buy!

It's good but I mean it gets old after half a year or so.

Definitely worth it though.

Dude. In all my years of gaming, The Orange Box is The BEST purchase I have ever made. It includes my favorite game HL2 and both episodes, TF2 which I'm addicted to ATM, and portal which is a fun puzzle game that will get you thinking.

I love Portal and HL-2, but I'm not a big fan of TF2. If you're into that kind of thing, by all means go for it. It's a great price for those games.

Sounds like I'll be getting the Orange Box! Hopefully these games will hold my attention longer than Far Cry 2 and Crysis Warhead.
