ROFL! This guy is right, get Unreal Tournament 3, COD4, Orange Box, Resistance:FOM or The Darkness instead. Area 51 is bad bad BAD!

Area 51 isn't as bad as these guys make it out to be, but it isn't that great. The adventure can be somewhat entertaining, but the rest of the game is a let down.

And yes, Orange Box is awesome. Worth getting for sure.

I'm not sure which game you're talking about.

I don't actually have Orange Box on PS3. I bought it for the Xbox 360 and didn't find the need to buy it for the PS3 also. But from what I've read, it is exactly the same.

The PS3 version of Orange Box is awesome.

It was mainly criticized for the framerate issues and load times.

I haven't experienced any framerate issues yet, and the load times are fine (although the load times get pretty annoying in Portal)

Orange Box is really good deal and I think everyone should try it (or at least try Portal)

Yeah, I played the hell out of it. Half Life 2 was a good lengh, but Episode 1 was only 3 or so hours, but Episode 2 has a good length, and the ending is going to leave you wanting more. It has a good replay value as well. I'm going to be starting another game later on today. From what I've read, the framerate on the PS3 version is a little behind at times but it is no where near enough to ruin the game.

Great game, pick it up.

Yes, TF is a lot of fun... It is actually the most deep multiplayer game I have ever seen.

Yes, HL2 graphics are outdated... even when the PS3 hardware allows for some cool lightning effects, some things in the game are pretty dated (I.E. the characters models and animations).

And No, there is no splitscreen in any of the 5 games.

Let me put it this way: you get four single player games, each long enough to last you at least the same as the Heavenly Sword campaign; and the most complex and fun multiplayer game created to date... All for the price of a single game.

If you can overlook the outdated graphics of HL, then you are sure going to get a lot of value for your money...

Look, I was a fan of the first one, it had standard gameplay, and David Duchovny was the voice for the main character (Mulder from the X-Files). I downloaded the demo of this one, cause I expected something good. Believe me the game is lacking a lot of juice, the only good thing I got from the demo was the chopper mission, the rest is crap.

After playing the demo I came to conclusion I'd rent it and see if maybe the demo was just the fluke..

Sadly the game is the same way, I'd not recommend Area 51 for FPS fans. Orange Box is not bad for PS3, but be warn - Episode 2 is very bad in frame rates and there were time when I would just put controller down as it becomes unplayable, Episode 1 is better but it has quite a few slowdowns on its own, especially the chopper sequences and few of last stages as well.

Half-Life 2, Portal and Team Fortress are not bad. It's sad Vale didn't want to optimize PS3 version as nicely as X360. It would had been a real gem.

For 50$ you get a great deal if you can deal with large drop in framerates in episode 2 and some in episode 1.
