Half Life 2 and other backward compatible Valve classics are now looking razor sharp with Xbox One X enhancements
Some of Valve’s most highly regarded titles, which joined Microsoft’s ever expanding library of backward compatible legacy games a while back, have been given the Xbox One X enhanced treatment. This means a dramatically increased pixel count for anyone with the hardware to make it happen.
The Orange Box compilation ranks as one of my favourite gaming packages ever tossed onto little shiny discs, and if you’ve somehow missed these games until now, it’s time to remedy that. Half Life 2 alone is enough to make it worth your money, but with Half Life 2: Episode One, Half Life 2: Episode Two, Portal, and Team Fortress all packed in there with it, it’s almost unbelievable value. And now they’re all going to look dead sexy if you’ve got an Xbox One X and a 4K TV to do it justice.
Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2 join The Orange Box, bringing impeccable puzzle action and gripping co-op zombie slaying to this latest batch of enhanced titles. In what is almost becoming a replacement concept for expensive game overhauls and remasters, these Xbox One X enhanced titles use the games original assets to bring the best possible version of these legendary games to new audiences.
