I got it yesterday morning.. finished both Portal and Ep2 last night. To be fair.. for the price you pay I'd expect at least a couple hours more play time in the first play, at least. But either way, both were awesome.

You have to complete it to find out. Very sad ending :(

Rehev, I was pretty pleased about the playtime I got for £22. I clocked up 18 hours of gameplay on both Portal and HL2Ep2 since the release, and I might go back and do the developer commentary on Ep2 and do the bonus maps on Portal. Dont forget you also get TF2 in that package as well, which could last you ages, being a solely online shooter.

It bugs me when people complain about the Orange Box, I think it's a damn good offer for £22.

Yeah, but the guns are mostly too innacurate to get good headshots. The only really accurate guns are really rare and you never get enough ammo for them.

EDIT: Also, the really accurate guns are one-shot kill :P

You're better off just sticking with the shotgun and the SMG. AR2 rounds are quite rare around the first half of the game so it's best to only really start using that when you're fighting enemies with the same gun.

I just tend to stick with the shotgun most of the time, since it's still pretty accurate at medium range.

I could not put down EP2 when I got home from work so it actually took me 8 hours straight to finnish. I think it was a good 100% suspence and action for all of those 8 hours so I'm pleased with the orange box so far.

And the ending is sad. I really wonder what will happen in episode 3.

I found the lack of an Ep 3 trailer disappointing. :/

Same. It took them so goddamn long to finish Ep2 that they put a flashback scene to Ep1 at the start of it, but they didn't think to put a foreshadow of Ep3.

Something tells me they havent even started it yet. It's gonna be a cooold 2 years.

Seems like I have to install steam all over again, just to find out that most likely one or more of the characters I vaguely remember to like will die. Sounds like a plan.
