Team Fortress 2 is an online multiplayer shooter designed to be played strategically. You won’t get far without your team. For example: You can’t rush into an enemy base as a Heavy and expect to kill everyone and capture the control point to earn the game winning point. You’ll probably get sniped in the head as soon as you get there, or killed by a sentry, or swarmed by Scouts and Soldiers. However…… If a Spy backstabs the Sniper, a Demoman destroys the sentry, and you’re backed up by Soldiers and Medics then you can kill everyone and capture the control point. In one match, I (as a Scout) sneaked through a pipe into enemy base with a friendly Heavy and a Medic behind me, let the Heavy destroy a sentry in the room so I could grab the enemy Intelligence and make to our base. If you haven’t played TF2, then you’re probably wondering what I mean by Scouts and Intelligence. Basically, there are 9 Classes in the game: Scouts, Soldiers, Pyros, Demomen, Heavys, Engineers, Medics, Snipers, and Spys. Scout is fast and can double-jump but has low health. Soldier is the Jack-of-All-Trades with his Shotgun and Rocket Launcher but doesn’t excel at anything and is quite slow. Pyro can use his (her?) Flamethrower to scorch enemies and detect hidden Spys and shoot an airblast to bounce rockets and grenades back. Demoman can blast enemies with his Grenade Launcher and set Sticky Grenades in strategic locations. Heavy can kill enemies in seconds with his Minigun but he’s very slow. Engineer can build an automatic sentry gun, an ammo and health dispenser, and teleporters. Medic can heal teammates with his Medi-Gun and make them invincible for a few seconds with an Uber-Charge. Sniper can deal extra damage with his Sniper rifle if stays zoomed in for a few seconds. Finally, Spy can disguise himself as a member of the other team, plant sappers on sentries, turn invisible, back-stab enemies for an instant-kill, or shoot with his Revolver. This game is great, just prepare to wait for the greatness, the ridicilously long installation time (30-45 minutes) and massive memory usage are tough pills to swallow. But once you finally get a massive kill streak, it’s all worth it.
