Team Fortress 2 is a FPS with cartoonish graphics and heavy reliance on teamwork. It used to be paid, but it went free to play in 2011.
The graphics, despite being a bit old already, still look good and stylish. The maps are usually well-designed and interesting to look at.
The gameplay stands out from your other FPS games for being very different than conventional shooters out there. You can pick from nine different classes: offensive (Scout, Soldier, Pyro), defensive (Demo, Heavy, Engineer) and support (Medic, Sniper, Spy), each with their own unique tools, style, strengths and weaknesses. This forces you to work with your teammates to cover each other's weakpoints and emerge victorious.
There are two main gamemodes: PvP and MvM. The former has a lot of sub-modes, such as Payload, Control Points, Attack / Defense, King of the Hill, or Capture The Flag. The latter, on the other hand, pits a team of six players in a co-op tower defense mode against hordes of bloodthirsty robots, with the objective of preventing them from delivering a bomb to the end of the map.
There is a lot of unlockable weapons, which allow you to customize and change your gameplay style, as well as a ton (and I mean a ton
) of cosmetic items, which serve no purpose besides looking cool.
The music, while it can't be heard outside of main menu or promotional videos, is very good and fun to listen to even outside the game.
Unfortunately, this game also has cons. Due to the amount of hats
content, the game is very heavy, so computers that aren't brand-new might experience some performance issues. Also, due to it being free to play, pub servers are often filled with noobs who have no idea what they're doing, which can destroy your gaming experience considering the game is teamwork-reliant. Multiple Snipers and Spies is a common occurence.
The community is also... well, not the worst, but one of the worst. Just a quick glance at the forums reveals a ton of unusual and Australium-toting "git gud" elitists who aren't very pleasant to talk to if you're new... or in general. However, that doesn't mean there aren't any people who are actually helpful towards newcomers.
Overall, I highly recommend this game to everyone. FPS veterans however should be prepared for a drastically different experience.
