Team Fortress 2, a free online competitive multiplayer game, is a first-person shooting game that has a broad range of character classes and excellent balance in the gameplay. The cartoon style graphics have become a popular point for Team Fortress, and for a three-year-old game, the visuals have stood the test of time. You have a clear view of everything happening, and the other players will not blend into the game from a distance. In fact, the graphics look so clear that you can distinguish the various character classes more easily, and that will help you decide on your strategy.

Team Fortress 2 has more than nine different classes. For example, you have the Pyro, the Scout, and the Soldier playing on offense. On defense, you have the Engineer, the Demoman, and the Heavy. The supporting classes are the Spy, the Sniper, and the Medic. You have a good blend of variety among all of the classes and none of them are overpowered. Team Fortress 2 offers a lot of fun in learning the different classes. Along with the different class system, you also have a variety of interesting game modes that range from control point, arenas, capture the flag, and payload. Team Fortress gives you a wide variety of content for free.

The gameplay takes place on a fast basis, and the controls are accurate and tight. You have a ton of customization that you can play with in the game, and the cartoon violence gives Team Fortress 2 more of a lighthearted feel than what you might find with games like Call of Duty or Battlefield. Despite the cartoon-like appearance, you still have a highly competitive and skill-based battleground that can be a lot of fun.

Team Fortress 2 has a robust player base even after being around for a few years. You have two teams that duke it out against each other, and the classes have made the game a lot more interesting. There are a lot of subtleties in each class that you need to master. Despite these things, you still need to be flexible with your character so that you can avoid having an imbalanced team. The combat of this game is highly lively, and you can choose multiplayer co-op. In this style of game, you will battle against monstrous robot hordes hell-bent on taking over the map. You and your teammates will battle these robots to with fury to keep them from winning. While the co-op mode with robots can be interesting, it gets old after a while, and the biggest draw of Team Fortress 2 is the competition. Few other FPS games have been able to nail the class-based competition like Team Fortress 2 and how they did it.
