Team Fortress 2 is the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map. It delivers new gametypes, a signature art style powered by Valve's next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.
This game used to be good. From it's launch till 2011 it was good. But then Valve decided to mess the whole thing up. It went from a fantastic fun online shooter, to a worthless, incohesive cluster of junk. Now instead of a fun online shooter, it is just another pathetic 'Free to Play' cashgrab that revolves around virtual items that cost real money. Speaking of the virtual items, the balancing on most of the weapons is off, and all of the costumes look ridiculous/don't go with the games initial theme at ALL. The game used to have a fantastic & unique cartoony style, but that is now overshadowed with absurd cosmetics/items. They seriously added a My Little Pony hat! Come on, who thought that would be a good idea? I can't remember the last time they released a half decent update. Actually, nevermind that. I do remember. It was the Engineer Update...BACK IN 2010! And to top it all off, the game has gotten stupidly buggy. I remember when it was almost polished to perfection, barely any bugs at all.
This used to be one of my favorite games of all time. But now whenever I see it, I cringe. This game has become cringe worthy.
Team Fortress 2 has lost ALL of its soul. This isn't TF2. TF2 doesn't exist anymore. It was replaced by...whatever THIS garbage is.
Also Meet the Pyro was awful. One of the most interesting classes in the game and they didn't even make a decent video for him.
Well, I know I'm going to get a lot of hate for this, but here goes. Valve fanboys can kiss my ***, this is my OPINION, google it if you don't know what that means.
After playing a good 10-20 hours, here is my breakdown of TF2, in order of importance, from most to least:
Gameplay 6/10: it's alright, but nothing special, a game that revels in mediocrity. If I wanted a standard run and gun shooter, I'd play Quake 3 again. If you're lucky enough to have a decent team, you may have some teamwork going on, more likely you'll just have the occasional medic healing you. Totally un-immersive gameplay, however.
Audio 3/10: guns sound like automatic staplers, however, the voices are alright, and some of the comments are amusing.
Animations 4/10: not very lifelike, somewhat to be expected in a cartoon game, but still.
Community 1/10: mostly a bunch of whiny 10 year old fanboys. I'd rather play CoD on Xbox without being allowed to mute anyone than play with the TF2 community. The fanboy butthurt that will emerge due to this post only proves my point.
Graphics 2/10: Don't get me started... graphics aren't that important, but really? This isn't stylistic, it's lazy.
Support 2/10: would get a great rating, except for the hat anal rape Valve lays down on owners of this game. Nice try attempting to milk this pile of mediocrity for everything it will give, Valve.
Overall, dodge this game unless you want another boring FPS trying to be stylistic and original by doing what Quake and Doom did better a decade ago. Unless you're partial to paying for virtual items, if so, go ahead and DL this one ASAP.
