As many of you know, Valve's compilation of Half-Life 2
, Team Fortress 2
all bundled together and marketed as the Orange Box
released today (yes, Wednesday) and the reviews are looking on the up.
According to the Orange Box metacritic page
, the game is pulling in an average rating of 97 with perfect 100 scores coming from Yahoo! Games, EuroGamer, GameTap and GamePro. Yes, yes, we know there are only six reviews currently posted and the law of averages tends to predict that the game will fall a bit from its 97 perch, but seriously, the Orange Box
is looking like an Xbox 360 winner. Then again, it's not like we ever doubted Valve's little color coded box-o-fantastic greatness. It's just that we now have metacritic proof and that gives us warm fuzzies.
