          Team Fortress 2 is a game made by Valve. Valve also made Portal and Half-Life. Team Fortress is a multiplayer only game. You can download it for free on the PC or Mac. For the consoles you can get it only in a game that also has Portal and Half-Life 2 for around $20-$30 dollars. It has a charming non-realistic cartoony graphics that aren’t trying to be realistic and failing at it like most games do.

The gameplay is fantastic. It has many different game modes to keep you busy for a long time. There are nine classes. Sniper has a sniper rifle, Pyro has a flame thrower, Medic has a medi gun and can heal people, Soldier has a rocket launcher , Scout has a scatter gun and is really fast, Demoman has a grenade launcher, Heavy has a mini gun, and the spy has a revolver and can cloak and disguise himself. All of the classes are great to play with and there is one for each play style. In multiplayer the two teams are the blue team and the red team.

Overall I think that Team Fortress is a game not to be overlooked. Especially since it is free to play on the computer. It has beautiful graphics and the gameplay is riveting. It is challenging but still easy to get into. There is lots of blood but since it isn’t a realistic shooter I have no complaints about that category unlike most shooters I review. I think it is one of those games that you play just because your bored and want to blow some stuff up and not one where you play for the story. (Which is nonexistent in this game!)
