TF2: A different breed of Gentleman
In a mid-century midwestern battleground, RED and BLU fight for control. Unlike usual shooters, you can choose from offensive, defensive, and support classes with less-than-realistic actions. For example, the Engineer class can speed the creation of his machines by hitting them with a wrench. The object of the game differs depending on which platform you choose to play on, from King of the Hill to Capture the Flag. This allows for many different game experiences. The player also has the option of choosing between offline practice mode and online multiplayer games, which is good for those that don’t like playing with real people.
The element of fun comes from the fast-paced time-based feeling of the game. You have to simultaneously kill the offensive members of the other team and complete the objectives of the round. The game also has a fun old-timey abstract James Bond retro-science feeling to it, which allows the player to feel more at ease about shooting the other players. This theme is carried throughout the game in its visuals and sound effects, leading to an immersive gameplay.
The controls are highly responsive, though it is far more difficult to play using a trackpad than a mouse. The level of difficulty is up to the player in Offline mode, and the tutorial levels are both entertaining and informative. With high replayability and an immersive experience, Team Fortress 2 gets
