TF2 delivers new gametypes, a signature art style powered by Valve’s next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.

    The marriage of highly stylised retro-spy presentation, fresh, high octane action, deep and varied classes and the underlying twinkle of humour in its metaphorical eye make Team Fortress 2 far more than just your average fragfest. Long after the novelty of the graphics wears thin, we are left with a refined and accessible multiplayer game that simultaneously cultivates new players whilst retaining enough depth to accommodate even the hardiest of veterans.
  2. When the biggest flaw of the game is that it gets a bit repetitive after the first hundred or so hours of play, you know you have something special.
  3. Rich, gorgeous and endlessly fun.
  4. The action is fast-paced and furious, the game's presentation is hilarious and exciting and the gameplay is very easily approachable. Experiment with a few classes or stick with one, but do anything to get your hands on TF2. It'll be an online experience you won't forget.
  5. The game also does a lovely job of framing your relationship with other players and nurturing them.

    Team Fortress 2 is, at heart, a gloriously simple game that's been created with style, panache and an undeniable love of gaming. It's the kind of game that you want to show to people who don't play games so that they understand and then either get involved or go away. There is life before Team Fortress 2, and there is life after. After is better.
  7. Team Fortress 2 sets a brilliant stage for its signature brand of class-based multiplayer mayhem.

    It is a really good game. And to the people who say it's unbalanced due to the achievements...

    The new weapons have 1 downfall to every good thing it has.

    The Ubersaw swings less rapid, but gives Uber every time you hit.

    Natasha does less damage, but slows the opponent down.

    The Backburner does critical hits on the back, but it has no compression blast.

    Valve is making it fair to other classes, don't say it's bad for that reason!

    The style is perfect for the tone of the game. Cartoony, violent, and above all fun.

It is not your average FPS. Team Fortress 2 offers a variety of characters, each with completely different specializations, weapons, visual aspects and personalities. It combines fictional aspects, humor and "toony" looks for various reasons. Many other first person shooters have an in-game shop that usually includes stronger weapons and items that you must have to be successful. Team Fortress 2, also known as TF2 provides a shop that merely contains extra items that add effects to your character or help you to obtain weapons that can usually be obtained in-game either by picking them up, trading or crafting them yourself. Team Fortress 2 is based around balance. Nothing is "the best," everything is based around different tasks a player may need to complete. Each character has specific roles that are more successful when used in the right place, at the right time. Every weapon is unique, some have special abilities with a cost to offset the ability's potency. The graphics are cartoonish to add humor and allow even the slowest of computers to play it smoothly. Everything in TF2 has humor. TF2 adds humor, such as pyroland. Pyroland was recently released as a part of the Pyro storyline. It is a cheerful alteration to TF2, featuring brightly colored maps with candyland like aspects. Pyroland also features players with high pitched voices, new weapons and gear, and new word spoofs like "DOMINATION" is now "BEST FRIENDS". I personally think this is the best fps I've ever played because of its unique comedy, balance, and game-play. Expand

    The best multiplayer video game Valve has released without a doubt.
    Fun and addictive gameplay.
    Perfect balance between classes.
    Graphics that are maintained by its cartoonish style.
    Very well designed maps, even in the simplest such as Turbine.
    Charismatic characters.
    Micropayments only affect aesthetics and not gameplay, being able to give your class the cosmetics you want.

    The only bad thing is that Valve does not give it the support it deserves this game with a titanic potential. Currently and unfortunately TF2 is in a very unfortunate state, full of Hackers-Bots, they do not update it since 2017, there was never a Heavy-update, the competitive one does not find a game because nobody plays it.
    Valve is excluding this game from what it can be. If they gave it enough attention, I would not doubt that it would reach the level of popularity that CSGO has and I am not exaggerating.

    Well, despite everything I would give it a 9.5 / 10 just because it does not have enough attention, but it would be a 10/10.
    A masterpiece and great benchmark for FPS.
