Team Fortress 2: From Good, to Better, to Worse But Still Fairly Good

Team Fortress 2 has been out for awhile.  I have been playing it fairly consistently since it's release.  It is a quality team based shooting game.  However, over the years, the constant gameplay updates have brought some new problems to the game.  The size of the game itself now passes over 10gb of data.  This is a considerable amount of data for such an old game.  The updates have also brought many gameplay/balance issues among the 9 classes.

However, overall, a lot of the rock paper scissors gameplay that made this a nice hit game, continue, and with more maps and gamemodes, it is easy to find a place in the game where you will fit with a variety of skill levels and play styles being represented.  It often goes on sale on STEAM for 9.99 so I certainly recommend waiting for a sale weekend to give it a spin!

Great review! What a bummer that the updates don't actually update the game, like they should. I guess that's why it goes on sale a lot? Thanks for sharing :)

It's really embarrassing to admit, but at 32 years of age with my graying hair, failing memory and ignorance of new music, I still have an itchy trigger-finger for a good video game. And they don't get much better than this, a time-sapping team-oriented experience squarely aimed at the Half Life 2 audience.       Two teams of up to 16 players apiece duke it out, with each member taking the guise of soldier, spy, engineer, medic, pyro, demolition man, and other characters, …

Team Fortress 2 is a team-based first-person shooter multiplayer video game developed by Valve Corporation. A sequel to Valve's previous Team Fortress Classic, it was first released as part of the video game compilation The Orange Box on October 10, 2007 for Windows and the Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version then followed on November 22, 2007. The game was later released as a standalone package for Windows on April 9, 2008. Team Fortress 2 is distributed online through the Steam system, while retail distribution was handled by Electronic Arts. The development of Team Fortress 2 is led by John Cook and Robin Walker, the designers who originally created the Team Fortress modification for Quake in 1996.

The game was announced in 1998, powered by Valve's GoldSrc engine, but has since been through various concepts and designs. In 1999, the game appeared to be deviating from its predecessors by pursuing a more realistic and militaristic style of gameplay, but the design metamorphosed over its nine-year development period. The final rendition sports cartoon style visuals influenced by the art of J. C. Leyendecker, Dean Cornwell and Norman Rockwell and is powered by the Source engine. The game itself revolves around two teams, each with access to nine distinct characters, battling in a variety of game modes set in evil genius environments.

The lack of information or apparent progress for six years of the game's original development caused it to be labeled as ...
