A Review Of Team Fortress 2

Student talks about a video game.

Well if you found this blog I’m going to apologize upfront I didn’t expect anyone could find this I mean look at the domain name of the site. Anyway because my teacher told me to make a blog for a grade I have to do this feel free to click away at any time.
For the people who don’t know what Team Fortress 2 is here is a brief rundown of it. Team Fortress 2 or TF2 for short TF2 is a Free-to-play online class based first person shooter (fps). This game was developed by Valve. It was released as part of the video game compilation The Orange Box on October 10, 2007, for Windows and the Xbox 360 and on April 8, 2008, it was released as a standalone title for Windows. It also came out for Mac on June 10, 2010, and Linux on February 14, 2013. One of TF2 best qualities was its characters or mercenary Scout, Heavy, Demoman, Sniper, Pyro, Engineer, Medic, Soldier, and Gaben’s favorite Spy.Now that we all have some based knowledge of the game I can get to reviewing it.  Here are some good things about the game. TF2 is a good game it has solid game mechanics and has stable servers to play on. TF2 also has great modes of gameplay to choose from payload to Mann vs. Machine. This game also allows you to purchase different cosmetics to customize your mercenary and with hundreds of hats to choose from your mercenary can look unique and different from others. The game is mostly balanced and fair and has no pay to win elements. This game also the inspiration behind other titles like Overwatch and other games. TF2 also allows you to customize certain aspects of the game like huds, hit sounds, kill sounds, and even the models (custom models can only be used on privately owned servers or community servers that allow it). There are a lot of pros for this game but this game also has some flaws.TF2 definitely has some flaws. One flaw I can think of is that there is not a big team of people working on it. What do I mean by that? Well if there is not that many people working on the game then the time it takes to update and fix the game is longer. Another flaw is that there are maps that have a few clipping errors.  Another flaw is usually when new weapons come out they are either stupidly overpowered or complete garbage and worthless. The last flaw I’m going to mention is that as mention before it rarely gets any big updates like new guns or new maps; which I find to be one of TF2 biggest flaw. It is not the TF2 team fault but it still would be nice if there were more frequent updates.

In conclusion, I rate this game 8 Spies out 10. It is a classic shooter that stood thru the test of time. It is customize-able and fun. There are a couple of bugs and glitches but every game has those. I would recommend this to you if you want to get into a new type of First person shooter. If you would like to play it here is a link to Steam (Welcome to Steam).
