Medic!! 0

The original Team Fortress emerged in 1996 as a mod for the game Quake, and was a cult favourite in fledgeling online gaming circles. A couple of years later, a version of the game known as Team Fortress Classic was created using the original Half-Life game engine. To this day, huge amounts of players continue to obsessively play this game on Valve's Steam servers. For over a decade, speculation mounted regarding a sequel to the original game, and finally in 2007 Team Fortress 2 was released as ...

One of the best multiplayer shooters money can buy 0

Team Fortress 2 is addicting. While writing this review I want to play it right now. The gameplay is that good. For those who don't know, Team Fortess 2 is a sequel to a mod which came out out way back for Quake 3. It is a class based online multiplayer shooter. You can choose beetween nine different classes, from the speedy Scout to the all-offensive Heavy Weapons Guy. You play across 7 different maps each with their own special mode. With modes like Capture the Flag and Control Points. Team F...

Rocket Jumping to Victory 0

First thing noticeable about Team Fortress 2 is the visual art style. Derivation from 1950's and 60's advertising automatically centers this game around the rare category of quirky and unique themed games this generation. Where squad based realistic shooters dominate the market, TF2 is an oasis in this time of need. Don't let the name fool you however, the games Fortresses take a backseat to the classes. There's no shortage of abundance as you take control of nine highly unique classes across t...

Team Fortess 2 0

After a extremely long wait, almost a decade, Team Fortess 2 was released and it was totally worth the wait.Team Fortess 2 is a class based multiplayer online shooter. This is one of the best online shooters I have played, it is fast paced and easy to learn from but difficult to master while being great fun.The game possess an art style which is similar to the one used in the Pixar film 'The Incredibles' but take note, it is not for kids. Gore and gibbing are the manner of the day but the violen...

Team Fortress 2 is the most fun I've had with a multiplayer game! 0

Team Fortress 2 is one of those games that has been in development hell for a very long time; in fact, it been in development for nearly a whole year. I never really have the chance to play the first game at all so I had no real anticipation for this game whatsoever and all I knew was that it has some team based gameplay in it. Boy was I in for a real treat, this is one of the best team-based shooters ever made, if not, one of the best multiplayer games I have played in a very long time. Allow m...

Better than Halo and Counter-Strike. The Best Online FPS Ever. 0

Valve isn't a stranger to multiplayer based first person shooters. Years ago they released Counter-Strike, possibly one of the most successful PC games ever, and you could argue that Team Fortress 2 is a reskinned CS, but TF2 has so many improvements over Counter-Strike that if you were a fan of CS and you pick up TF2, you will more than likely not wanna ever go back to clunky old Counter-Strike. There are huge differences between CS and TF2 (aside from TF2 being leaps and bounds better than CS)...

One of the best multiplayer experiences. Ever. 0

BackgroundTeam Fortress 2 is a class based multiplayer shooter developed by Valve for quite some time now. Over the development, Team Fortress 2 has switched a bunch of different styles, and ended up with a comical looking game, that satires on the whole FPS genre.The GoodThe game heavily relies on team work. It has wave respawns which encourage the team to work together to achieve a goal. This is good because even if the team does not work cooperatively, they are still spawning together. The ni...

The Essential Video Game. 0

Team Fortress 2's seamless combination of outstanding visual presentation, design and gameplay rank it so far beyond other gaming experiences, the act of not owning this title calls into question your own enthusiasm for the medium itself. The meticulous crafting by Valve is evedent in any portion of the game you inspect, to the point where you expect at any moment a small misguided detail to tarnish the experience -- a moment that never arrives.The nine playable classes in Team Fortress 2 are a...

Pixar meets a rocket launcher to the face. 0

Team Fortress Classic came out about 10 years ago as a mod for Half-Life. It was announced that there would be a squeal to Team Fortress Classic 9 years ago, and today with the Orange Box we finally have it. When you pop in Team Fortress from your Xbox 360 or from your PC the first thing you’ll see is the game’s art style. The game looks awesome! While they aren’t as good as Gears of War or Call of Duty 4 they still look cool, and they don’t need to look cool for them to work really well. Thin...

A multiplayer shooter destined to be a classic 0

Valve has done it again; they have created a masterpiece of a game. The team in Bellevue, Washington has created a truly magnificent multiplayer first-person shooter worthy of the highest accolades for its near perfect balance between its nine distinct classes (of which are the Scout, Soldier, Pyro, Demoman, Heavy, Engineer, Medic, Sniper, and Spy), its wonderful cartoon-like graphical style, and its outstanding and addicting gameplay. I have spent over 200 hours with the game since its beta lau...

A comedic look through an FPS 0

Team Fortress 2 is a game that when you look at it, you wouldn't think it was worth your time. But in reality, it is an amazingly fun game to play. The game is comedic in a sense, and subtle jokes are thrown in with the gameplay, whether it be what a character says, or just the weapons a character uses.ClassesTeam Fortress 2 uses 9 classes in it's gameplay, as a class you have your set weapons, and only those weapons. Weapons will drop when an enemy is killed but can only be used for ammo. Each ...

A great experience at a great price 0

The first thing you’ll notice when you first make contact with Team Fortress 2 is the original graphic style: stylish, with a strong cartoonish feel to it, lots of shading effects and characters that bring to mind the heroes from The Incredibles. In fact, the way in which these characters were created will be one of the reasons of your always playing with a smile on your face, even when your head is blown off by a bullet coming from the other side of the map. In addition, there are delicious iro...

Possibly the single best modern PC game- 0

Team Fortress 2 is the sequel the Mod for the Quake of a similiar name, sans the 2. The game is a first person shooter that is purely online and sets the Cutthrought Red Team against the despicable Blue team. The game features dozens of maps and a variety of gametypes(But doesnt feature any Deathmatch modes?).  The maps are built with pre-assigned gametypes, this makes the maps more balanced and better designed for each gametype. The two most popular gametypes are Capture the Flag and Control po...

Well what can I say.Rather than go on about what this game is like and how it is played, I'm going to point out some key reasons why this has quickly become my most favourite game ever.Reason 1: The Art-styleWith obvious influence for 1920s/30s cartoons it looks fantastic. At the same time as looking cartoon'y it also retains a smidgen of realism. I personally love this. It means that when someone blows up you can laugh without being too grossed out or feeling guilty.The attention to detail the ...

A game for any gamer 0

After years of waiting, it has finally arrived.  Team fortress 2 is not your typical multiplayer first person shooters.  It is a class-based team game that requires great team work to defeat another team.  With great offical maps like 2fort and dustbowl, along with great custom maps.  Team Fortress 2 gives players endless replay value.  Now that Valve is starting to add new updates to each of the 9 classes along with new achievements, it is definitely a game for any gamer to check out....

This is one of those rare treats that comes out every so often. It's quite an amazing game and I'm really glad that it has caught as much attention as it has, because it deserves it.The graphics are great. There's some really well done shadow effects and the art style as a whole is just astounding. The visual style the developers decided to go with really makes the game stand out from the pack. Best of all the game can run on at least minimum settings on most of today's computers. On the downsid...

Current Team Game Champ 0

This game is currently the best game out there for team based action.The game forces you to use teamwork no matter if you're playing in a tournament or just in a pub, there is no way around it and that is the main thing that sets Team Fortress 2 apart from other class-based-team-focused-multiplayer games.Its art style is/will age very well (now if they would just design levels with a few more colors...) the gameplay is constantly advancing due to Valve's consistent class and map updates, and the...

Team Fortress 2 review by Termite 0

Game Review: Team Fortress 2The last game in the Orange Box is also the one that gives it the replay value it needs. Valve realized that their Orange Box, while great, has lots of short games in it. To make up for it they put a game in the genre that never dies, Online First Person Shooters.Team Fortress 2's development took a long time, a very long time. It was often compared to Duke Nukem Forever in the way that both of them were highly anticipated, yet constantly pushed back and delayed. The ...

An Amazing FPS at a great Price 0

Team Fortress 2 is the sequel to Team Fortress Classic which is a mod for Half-Life. There are 2 default modes in TF2. Capture the Flag and control points. Capture the flag is pretty much any capture the flag in any game, and control points is where you find your enemys control points and stand on them to slowly capture them. If one team has all control points, they win. Every class is balanced, like the heavy class deals a lot of damage, but is ridiculously slow, and is slower while firing. The...

In a world of dull brown shooters, TF2 shines out brilliantly 0

This review is more of a refelction of a veteran TF2 player than an overview of mechanics. I have been playing TF2 since its original beta as a part of the Orange Box, and there really isn't another game that has kept me so passionate and dedicated. This can mostly be attributed to the game's amazing community and the absolutely ridiculous support by Valve. The game was certainly very fun even in the beta, but it lacked a variety in the maps department.  Now, after 3 years of constant updates (a...

Well, not the best one but, it still rocks really much! Of course as you would have expected the game would have some funny and detailed graphic. Guess what, you're right. This game is just so funny to just look at and the animations are good too. I would not go into detail because you have to experience the fun yourself before you believe it. The sounds are really good except when the soldier shoots his rocket gun its the same sound all over again and again. Though, beside that, the sound is ...

A Fantastic Online Shooter Experience 0

This fantastic game has been continually supported by Valve with free content updates for the past three years. The mutliple classes cater to many different play styles.

Solid Multiplayer Shooter 0

Team Fortress 2 is perhaps the strangest shooter I have played but it is also a lot of fun.  The multiplayer shooter I had played most recently online was Day of Defeat: Source which is good but has some annoyances, such as giving each player a minuscule amount of health and never allowing the player to gather any additional health. For the most part though it is a fairly balanced and entertaining shooter, especially after you have developed some skill and learned the maps. Team Fortress 2 on t...

Team Fortress 2 is one of the five games which were included in the excellent package from Valve, The Orange Box. The multiplayer component of the five, Team Fortress 2 is five stars for it's fantastic gameplay, comedic characters and phenomenal level design. The game's nine classes are very different from each other. So different that each one is like a different game experience entirely.  Scout for the twitch players, Engineer for the more tactical minded, Snipers for, well, snipers. And yet, ...

Team Fortress 2 was in the making for 9 years. And 3 years and 9 class updates later people are still playing it. The game's 60's look has a very stylized look and feel. The 9 classes that are available(Pyro,Scout, Soldier, Heavy, Demoman, Engineer, Spy, Medic and Sniper) all have their strengths and weaknesses.

I bought Team Fortress 2 on a 33% off Steam weekend, hoping it would be a bit of fun for AU$20, but instead it has pulled me away from Call of Duty 4 and become my favourite online game. The 9 classes each play completely differently, meaning boredom is very hard to find.Valve are releasing excellent content packs for each class, featuring a bunch of achievements to unlock 3 new weapons, so far Medic and Pyro have been released, with Heavy set to come next.The game runs brilliantly on my 8800GT ...

And if it's not, Valve goes ahead and tries to make it balanced with seeming non-stop updates to the game.    In TF2, there is 9 Diffrent classes.

This game is simple, yet excellent. When everything clicks and you're working with your team to defend the intel or a control point, the experience is intense and you're having plenty of fun. The only downsides, and they are somewhat prominent, are that it can get repetitive after a long session. The gameplay, overall, can be repetitive, particularly if you play on the same map, the same game type, or same class for a long time.

Compared to some other shooters, Team Fortress 2 a bit simple at first glance, with only a handful of maps and modes of play. The nine different classes have a few weapons, which seems like it might not give them that much to do. But the depth of design you discover once you actually start playing is impressive. The wildly different character designs make it easy to know exactly what you're dealing with, which gives the game a more strategic feel than it might otherwise have with such a fast pac...
