Decrypting. I'm going to play a little Portal and some Episode 2 then call it a night.

Man, still gotta finish Bioshock...

9.5 Presentation
A well put together collection on all accounts. Each of the new games even has achievements for PC players so you can get as obsessive as the 360 guys.

9.0 Graphics
Valve and source still have it. The overall visual appeal is quite strong with Ep 2 and the brilliant Team Fortress 2. Portal, HL2 and Ep 1 aren't quite as good but certainly not bad at all.

9.5 Sound
Sound across all categories and games is really excellent. Music, voice work, sound effects... Orange Box has it all.

9.5 Gameplay
With so many amazing games to choose from, how can you go wrong? Even the "worst" of the bunch is impressive.

9.5 Lasting Appeal
Around 30 hours of single player gaming (if you include HL2 and Ep 1, which we are) and countless hours in the highly addictive Team Fortress 2. See you in a year.

9.5
Incredible OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average)
WOW another overrated game ....

I thought Episode 1 was awesome. I'm sure this will be the same. I just wish it didn't take them 18-24 months for a 4-5 hour episode. I'm sure Episode 3 will come out quicker.

I would easily rate HL2 9.5, and Ep1 9.0. I'm sure Ep2 is just as good or better.
