Orange-Box PS3 US ESRB ver20

The Orange Box is a 2007 compilation released by Valve consisting of Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and Portal released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Why It Sucks

NOTE: This only applies to the PlayStation 3 port and not the PC or Xbox 360 versions.

  1. This port was not developed by Valve themselves (unlike the PC and Xbox 360 versions), but was instead outsourced to an internal Electronic Arts studio.
  2. Severe framerate issues, with Half-Life 2: Episode Two running at an average of 22 frames per second.
  3. Long loading screens.
  4. Low-resolution textures throughout.
  5. Team Fortress 2 had a severe game-breaking bug that was patched out of the Xbox 360 version but was never fixed in this port, thus rendering it unplayable.
  6. There's no reason to play this collection anymore, considering that all of the games in it will run with little to no issues on most PCs, including laptops.
  7. Team Fortress 2 has all weapons being held in the wrong hand.
