The Orange Box- Team Fortress 2 PC

Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map. A long time coming, TF2 was first announced in 1998, but in the years that followed went through various concept and design changes, which left it looking less and less like the beloved original release. Luckily by the time the final version came off the presses and was bundled as part of EA?s 2007 release, The Orange Box, it had returned to something very close to the original game.

Built around multiplayer battles of two teams, Reliable Excavation Demolition (RED) and Builders League United (BLU), representing competing construction teams, players choose between two game modes: capture the flag (CTF) and a control point mode. In CTF the objective is to obtain a briefcase of intelligence from the enemy team's base and return it to their own base while preventing the opposing team from doing the same. In the control point mode the objective is similar, only related to holding particular territories. To be successful in either the most important thing is to understand and use each character class in the best way possible.

A Game That's a Class Operation
Unlike other "class-based" games that offer a variety of combat classes only, Team Fortress 2 features a wide variety of classes which provide a broad range of tactical abilities and personalities, and lend themselves to a variety of player skills. All nine playable character classes from the original game are available and although a few of these, like the Medic and Heavy generally work well with any mix of characters, overall each have particular strengths in offensive, defensive and support capacities. Each also will respond dynamically with different comical dialogue when in combat.

The full character classes include:

  • Pyro - An offensive class with average damage tolerance, Pyros are armed with a flamethrower, shotgun and a fire axe.
  • Engineer - A defensive class with a low threshold for damage, Engineers can upgrade weapons and equipment and are armed with a shotgun, a pistol and a wrench.
  • Spy - Used for sabotage the Spy carries a revolver, a butterfly knife, an electronic zapper and a diguise kit.
  • Heavy - Tough on offense and defense the Heavy's weapons are the minigun, the shotgun and his fists.
  • Sniper - A support class with low damage tolerance, the Sniper is armed with a sniper rifle, a submachine gun and a machete.
  • Scout - The Scout is fast but susceptible to damage. His weapons are a sawed off shotgun, a pistol and a baseball bat.
  • Soldier - A slow, but a powerful offensive class, the soldier wields a rocket launcher, a shotgun and a spade.
  • Demoman - A defense class with an average amount of protection, the Demoman is armed with a remotely detonated sticky bomb and a bottle of Scotch.
  • Medic - Medics keep other characters alive and are armed with a healing 'medigun,' a syringe-firing launcher and a bone saw.
The importance of the abilities of particular classes aside, far and away the dominant factor in Team Fortress 2 and the secret to its popularity, is its clear dedication to fun. This is seen in its rejection of realism in favor of cartoon-style art in the game's graphics, the inclusion of super weapons like lasers and missile launchers hidden within the six standard maps and the attention given to each character's incidental trash talking functionality. Combined, these simply make for fast-paced, over-the-top fun which are the building blocks of any multiplayer shooter.

One thing the first-person shooter genre has been tending towards in the last few years is an emphasis on gritty, realistic (or at least semi-realistic) gunplay. This is not a universally-loved proposition. Take a look at two screenshots from two different shooters, and chances are that if you aren't already an avid fan of the genre, you will not be able to tell them apart. The status quo is rather displeasing - but who better to shake it up than Valve Software, who have already revitalized the genre twice with the 1998 hit Half-Life and its 2004 sequel? Their effort to this end is Team Fortress 2, and what a terrific game it is.

In spite of its title, Team Fortress 2 is in fact the third iteration in the Team Fortress series, which is known for being the first class-based multiplayer first-person shooter. When it was announced way back in 1999, Team Fortress 2 was supposed to have a highly realistic art direction, but along the way that decision was dropped in favour of a highly stylized art direction. The result is that TF2 looks like no other first person shooter on the market today. Valve has used some clever shading techniques to make both the characters and environments look like cartoon characters, with exaggerated anatomy, bright colours and incredible facial animation.

The audio is similarly inspired. While weapon and impact noises are as good as you would expect them to be, what really shines is the speech and music. The game has a consistent musical theme, and jingles that wouldn't sound out of place in a '60s spy thriller play at the start and end of each round. The characters themselves emote with gusto. Each character has three different unique taunts, and several context-sensitive voice clips that can be triggered at the push of a key.

This game is FREE TO PLAY now. All you have to do is download Steam from Valve software (even if you bought this you'd have to install steam). There is absolutely no reason to buy this unless you feel like giving Electronic Arts free money. Otherwise the game is polished and you could really get into it if you like team based multiplayer shooters.

The game is very well balanced with 9 classes with unique abilities and weaknesses. Valve continues to update and add more maps all the time. The animation and voice over work will have you chuckling as you intensely battle for intelligence and capture points. Be aware that this game is only for online play, and has no single player. So good luck and have fun.

When I initially wrote my review, I wasn't aware of the differences between free-to-play and the retail version. Someone commented that the retail version allows you to have a larger backpack and to trade items with others whereas the free version does not. Had the free option been available when I bought the game, I probably would have opted for the free version.

All in all, this game is super fun and highly addicting. If there is any question in your mind about if it's worth it, just download it from Steam and try it out for free. If you get to the point where you need the trading, bigger backpack, then purchase the retail version from Amazon ($10 cheaper than Steam last time I checked).

Team Fortress 2 has an interesting history. I tried the original Team Fortress for Quake and... well... I hated it.

It took my friends a lot of convincing to get me to try Team Fortress 2 after I bought a pack that contained it.

I'm glad I did. I joined just before the Gold Rush Update, the first major update the game received back in 2008.

Team Fortress 2 is a team-based, class-based first person shooter. Stylistically, it's set in a 1960-ish evil genius type universe. Think Dr. No.

Since the review title mentions balances, I feel I must mention both the good things and bad things about the game. I'll list the Bad points first.

1. Requires a Steam account.
2. It's quite common to have one team steamroll the other. The game mitigated this recently by adding an automatic team scramble if one team is doing considerably better after two map goal completions. These goals depend on the map type.
3. When you first start the game, the classes may seem unbalanced. Those darn Snipers headshot you from half-way across the map! Those spies come out of nowhere to backstab you!
4. You are at a severe disadvantage if you don't know the layout of maps.
5. Starting players do not have all the weapons that long-time players have. For example, my account has every standard weapon in the game. I have a choice between 3 weapons/items for nearly every class in all 3 slots. Note: 3 items for each class are unlockable through achievements.
6. Teams can have too many of a single class. On most maps, 1-2 Spies and 1-2 Snipers is enough. More than that in a 12-player team tends to be detrimental.

Don't listen to negative reviews. I've been playing games for over a decade (including online), and this is the most fun I've had in a long time. I've also played on many servers, and I'm yet to find those "abusive players", "glitchy content" or "poor support from Valve" that was mentioned by one reviewer. Don't know what they're talking about. This game is clean, smooth, fun, hacker-free (hackers get banned permanently), well-balanced, funny, easy on the eye, and players are for the most part friendly and cool. If you like online shooters, this is a must-get!
