Overall: The Orange Box has it all. Three games all with their own unique spin on the FPS genre, makes Valve's latest an outstanding full bodied package all 360 owners should have.

The single player aspect of the Orange Box constitutes Episode 2 (the gripping continuation of the Half Life 2 single player series) and Portal (a unique puzzle game built on a unparalleled physics engine). For those multiplayer enthusiastics Team Fortress 2 is also included. It should allow for late nights of 8v8 pwnage against all your friends via Xbox Live.
Gameplay: HL2 Episode 2 offers the same essential gameplay as Half Life 2 and Episode One, but with its own unique twists and spins on your opponents and objectives.
Portal presents itself with puzzle-like gameplay and forces users to think outside the box as they work their way through different mazes with the help of their Portal Gun. You truly have to experience this one to believe it..
Team Fortress 2 offers a similar paced gameplay to Team Fortress Cl@!%#*!ic (its 10 year old predecessor) but with stunning visuals and a much simplified learning curve so that anyone who picks up the controller is destined to have a blast.
Graphics: While TF2 and Episode 2 definitely prevail in over Portal in the visual world, all three games still look gorgeous. Use of the Havok engine is notable, and obvious especially in Portal and Episode 2.
The most memorable landscapes are definately found in Episode 2, while the most impressive models are most certainly TF2's.
Sound: The voice work and sound effects in all three games are excellent.
Episode 2 has the most memorable score that definitely grips and indulges the player into the simulated world.
It's wonderful to see one game feature so many unique styles of sound. From the goofy and humorous lines of the Demoman in TF2 to the threatening and spine-chilling Combine grunts in Episode 2, Valve succeeds on every level.
Suggestions: Develop an Orange Box 2!
