Team Fortress Classic is a precursor to TF2 a highly popular Hat Simulator made by valve, so let's take a step back and look at the first game in the series.

Team Fortress Classic is similar to all early valve multiplayer games and by that I mean, Counter Strike and Half Life Deathmatch. The gameplay is similar, but there is a different gameplay spin in each game. For example in Counter Strike you use real life weapons, in Half Life you use iconic weaponry from the games and in Team Fortress you have classes.

Classes range from a heavy who uses a mini gun, to a spy and a medic and many many more. All of them have different weaponry and all function differently on the field. Some weapons do more damage, but fire slower or vice versa. It all boils down to skill and it's really fun.

Gameplay wise, I only got the chance to try out Capture the Flag as it's the only server I found which still contains a nice amount of dedicated players which is nice. Other gamemodes have a few players, but the game is pretty much dead and I will get into that a bit later.

Graphically this is a mod of the Half Life game similar to Counter Strike, so a lot of the same assets and models are in this game. It's not aged well, but overall graphics are not the selling point for this game.

Gameplay is really fun, it's challenging and rewarding and it's general a really good gameplay design.

Now the only bad thing is a major problem with the game. It has a dying community and it's dying rapidly. I only found one server that had 13 people in total, while others only had 2 or no players. It's a dying game, but the people that play it, they are very dedicated players so you can get in touch with a community and get a game going.

Overall Team Fortress Classic is a fun game, is it as good as Team Fortress 2 ? No, not really. While I like the gameplay more in this game, I still think Team Fortress 2 is the better game.

Final Rating:
6/10

Pros:
+ In Depth Gameplay

Cons:
-Dying Community

It’s a game that is as remarkable today as it was 17 years ago. Net code so sharp you could cut yourself with it. A game engine that positively flies on any hardware from the last 10 years. It’s £4 at full price.

And it hasn’t got hats.

Really great! I played all 3 official TF games. The original TF from 1996, TFC, and TF2. Fun and unique experience. All 3 games are amazing in their own ways. Diverse maps, fun gameplay, etc. Highly recommend a try.

Team Fortress Classic has to be one of the best Multiplayer games I have ever played. When I first played Team Fortress Classic and hopped into a server, I fell in love with. It`s much more fast paced, fair, and people actually work as a TEAM! Wow! The community of this game are very kind and welcome new players with open arms, unlike it`s "sequel". But anyways, for anyone who is looking for a very fun multiplayer shooter, then TFC is up your alley!

Team Fortress Classic is pretty fun and I like it. I suck at it though.
The game could be competitive and fun, its like Team Fortress 2 but no items.
also being able to have an in-game name seperated from your steam name is cool.
Get the game
