PROS:

- Somewhat solid gameplay
- Good weapon balance
- Classic, well-known, and kickass maps
- Set the basis for the game we know and love today

CONS:

- Controls feel stiff at times- at it's worst, unresponsive.
- The community is lacking, as to be expected from a game that is 17 years old.
- Can get very drab and slow at times (in my opinion)

OVERALL:

This game is a ♥♥♥♥ing classic, and really provides an interesting look at the game that molded the amazing game we know today. While still primitive as far as it's graphics and mechanics, TFC can still definetly provide a fun and fullfilling experience. It has a rather significant lack in servers, but when there is a populated server, the battle can get intense and fun. I recommend this game for both people looking for a classic goldie to toy around with, and for people who are curious to see the father of TF2 by themselves.

Team Fortress Classic is a really good game I gotta admit I hop on it every so often but I cannot recommend it. Why? Because it's so difficult to understand. There is no feedback and its so hard to tell whats going on in matches because its so fast paced. Its hard to explain but if you try it yourself you will know exactly what I mean. Experienced players get a huge advantage over everyone especially with grenades in the game. The learning curve is so steep that it's not even a curve... It's a wall...

However if you're good at games like quake or half-life then I defilently recommend this!!!

This game man, I havent had a hole lot of time to play it but its still pretty good actully. Not nearly as good the latest installment Team Fortress 2 (Wich I recomand way more) If you are a TF2 player you should defently play this to feel the other installments to the game you love
This game is "OK" it could have been worse it could have been better. But ey! Its made in 1999 So what would you expect?

Take a trip down to where TF all started! I have soo many hours on this game mostly before steam was a thing. most times during the Day in CA time you will find Multiple Full servers. At night however there are very little playing. Besides that there are soo many rediculous things in this game that make it fun, Like grenade jumping, bhopping, demo spam, you know all of what you love about tf2 just in a more frustrating manner. However I am yet to find a more satisfying sniper experience.

Team Fortress Classic is a complete joy. At first it's a hard game to jump into and can be quite annoying from time to time. There are many things that make this game what it is.

First off, this game set the standard for what every class-based shooter should be. From the fast-running scout to the hefty Heavy Weapons Guy, this game introduces most-needed diversity in what any game should have to keep it running, and to keep players playing. Sometimes, however, it just doesn't seem like the classes are doing what they should. On maps like 2fort (CTF) or Dustbowl (TC), the Medics are the ones that are the guys pushing the flag by using their frag and concussion grenades to propel themselves towards the capture point, rendering the Scout useless and completely diverts the MEDIC'S role away from what it seems.

The game play of this game will keep you sitting at your desk for hours on hours. The on-going struggle to carry a piece of cloth on a pole to an enemy base will be as if you're running with a piece of pie dangling in front of you -- Long and annoying at first, but rewarding in the end. The stalemates of the grenade tosses at the beginning of matches can be aggravating, but you'll feel like a secret agent slipping through as a spy.

Overall, this game is absolutely marvelous, and will live on forever. This game is worth the five bucks, it's tons of fun, and it will keep you entertained for years to come.

I tried this out of curiosity after playing TF2 and I have to say it's not really that fun, plus there are hardly any servers with players on them, especially when it's late at night.

Let me be honest right up front. This is for new and potentially new players. Vets of the game already know why TFC is still for sale, and not F2P like it's "decendent".

TFC is a game I've been playing for over 15 years. It is, without a doubt, the most FUN game in my library.

You have the same 9 classes as TF2, however, with many differences. The Spy can't turn invisible, but can "feign death". Be careful with this ability, as it's not impossible to spot a Spy trying to pull their tricks.

Grenades! TFC has grenades, and lots of them! Every class(except Sniper) has a class specific secondary grenade. All classes(except Scout) have your normal issue "Frag" grenade. Using these grenades can help you either kill an enemy, or assist your movements.

When you first begin playing, you WILL get your butt handed to you. A lot. This is normal, and all TFC players have been through it. Don't let that deter you. The game engine has lots of nuances for you to learn, but it takes time. Really, it takes lots of time to learn, but many players are willing to teach you. All you have to do is ask.

You may encounter players who have forgotten what it's like to be new to the game. Ignore them, or mute them. I may not be the best TFC player around, but I'm a team player, and I don't mind teaching what I know. Feel free to friend me, and just ask.

Don't expect "Hats". TFC is a game where tactics and skill are utilized, we don't need no stinking Hats. ;)

Would you believe there are still some people that were mad with TF2, because they felt that it wasn't enough like team fortress. Regardless I feel they are both solid games even if they are so far away from one another at this point its not even funny.

This game deserves the title it truly is a classic honestly i find tf2 to be boring but for some reason i find TFC is alot more fun even if i may be abit s**t at the game (mostly because im busy trying to make my team lose lmao) the class i use the most is pyro i feel that class isnt as popular as it should be pyro is actually a chaos maker defo a good class for those who are new mostly easy kills with this class but other classes like soldier and heavy are also good for racking up kills and snipers assualt rifle is also a great weapon to use. Nothing really that bad with the game except it doesnt have a soundtrack but thats just nitpicking i could easily just put on my black metal satanic music on then im set. Good game 11/10 would kill again
