Summary

Team Fortress Classic really is a Classic

The Good

Awesome. Team play has never been better, with so much variety of playing and the sheer fun of invading an enemie's base, no game/mod has yet to capture this, although some have come close, like Unreal Tournament, but TFC is still king, even though its a modification for Half-Life. I would go into detail, but the main point is to choose a character class, each one with abilities disadavantages (an example is the Medic which is fast and can heal players but is weak) and capture the opponent's flag/keycard and bring it back to base for a point. There are also other variations. If you have the game of the year version of HL, you already have it, and can play it as soon as you get the patch in Configuration when you boot up HL. In case you got the earlier HL version, go to www.teamfortressclassic.com to download it for free. It is worth your time and tons of people play, so what are you waiting for? Play it!

The Bad

Sometimes there are some pretty laggy spots sometimes in the game on older computers.

The Bottom Line

Capture the Flag team gameplay with different character types.
