The Orange Box for the Xbox 360 has the most achievements of any Xbox 360 game with 99 of them.[1] However, it has only 1000 available gamerscore, whereas Gears of War 3 has the most gamerscore in a single game with 2000.

On its Xbox 360 release, The Orange Box received 99 achievements across all five games on the disc. On their release, the Steam versions of Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2 all saw achievements. Until recently, for Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One, all achievements were exclusive to the Xbox 360. However, in the first days of the Steam UI Beta, all of the Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One achievements were shown on the game's Library/Games page. Users speculated that Valve would include those achievements for the PC, which they did on May 26th, 2010. The PS3 version has no achievements.
