I borrowed the Orange Box from a mate. It's really worth giving it a go.
Half-Life 2 has one of the best FPS experiences around, in my opinion.
However, it starts off fairly slow as i hated that hovercraft vehicle thing. Was terrible!
Otherwise awesome game.
I beat Episode 1 already! Way too short
That's the beauty of the xbox version as you have achievments to get as well. One of them is complete episode one with only shooting one bullet (it makes it seem much longer
). Another good one was little rocket man. In episode two, at the start of the episode, you will find a garden gnome in the radio shack. To get the achievment you have to carry the gnome through the entire episode and put it in a rocket at the end, launching him into space (lucky guy).
Oh, by the way, portal was awesome. Who wouldn't want to be a cake!?
