Half Life 2 : The Orange Box

Before buying the Orange Box : HL2 , I was curious about a couple of things... please answer ^^

i know theres 5 games in the box, hl2, hl2 episode 1+2, portal, teamfortress 2,

do they allow me to run hl2 mods to play multiplayer online? Is counter strike source included? and the regular counterstrike 1.6? those are my main concerns because I want to buy a package that has hl2, cs:s and cs1.6 if possible. Thanks

  1. Cs Source is apparently not in it nor is 1.6 but all the mods for hl2 will work. Just buy the old half-life one compendium, as 1.6 needs a halflife cd key.
  2. ouch then I have to buy cs:source ? damn..
  3. I've only bought HL (boxed, but I put the serial into steam), HL2 (boxed, serial put on steam, since gifted) and Orange Box (on steam), but I've got:

    CS
    CS:S
    DoD
    Blue Shift
    Opposing Forces
    Ricochet
    TF:Classic

    on my Steam account without doing anything. I guess if you buy enough HL/HL2 stuff you get some extras.
  4. I bought the orange box and ended up buying Garry's Mod and CS:S off Steam, cost next to nothing to download them, and from the enjoyment I've gotten out of them it's well worth it
  5. Blue shift, opposing forces and TF:C are included with HL if downloaded from steam, I don't know about other sources though

    any of the non-source mods are free with original hl. however, blue shift and opposing force were expansion packs and not mods. however, since original hl is now only $10, they might just give them away for free. i have orignal cd's for hl and the 2 expansions so not sure what is included on steam now (check the steam store for details).

    as far as cs:source, that is not bundled with orange box. however, it was bundled with hl2 in certain store/steam packages.

    fyi, get orange box and cs:s separately if you have to. they both rock.
