Inside Mac Games (IMG)
Overall then, Team Fortress 2 is a late but very welcome addition to the short list of good multiplayer shooters available to Mac gamers. The graphics are gorgeous, with the cartoon environments and characters deserving particular praise. Moreover, aforementioned technical issues aside, the game runs incredibly smoothly, even on a fairly old Mac. The gameplay is challenging without being inaccessible. Both old Unreal hands and players who are new to multiplayer shooters should be fairly comfortable with the controls, the progression system and the general gameplay. If you have a moderately powerful Mac, competitive instincts, and time to burn, I wholly recommend you pick up a copy of Team Fortress 2. The games smooth mix of violence and irreverent humour makes for something very tasty – rather like a vintage brandy distilled by Quentin Tarantino. Enjoy it. Oh, but install Snow Leopard. I don’t want to have to start a review with quite so dull a note again.
Team Fortress 2 is extremely popular, and deservedly so. Now it's free and cross platform, there's no excuse not to get involved!
Some games capture the moment and become hot-sellers but disappear into obscurity later, not able to withstand the tides of changing technology. Others, so called “cult classics,” go unappreciated when initially released but have unique charms that keep players coming back years later. Team Fortress 2 is neither. It was a hit when it was released and it’s still a popular and well-oiled machine now. There’s a reason why it’s still the preferred multiplayer shooter of many gamers, despite being three years old. The Halo and Call of Duty series also impress with their multiplayer features, but even they can’t compete with the well-balanced, funny, and eclectic missions you’ll enjoy with Team Fortress 2. See you all on the servers... Last one alive, lock the door!
