Here is the Review for non-tf2 players:
A pretty neat old online multiplayer shooter using the GoldSource engine
its not dead, it still has great community servers and is fun
with friends (if you have any) or with strangers you can annoy by simply saying tf2 is better because of hats

Review for Tf2 Players:
> No Hats
> Nobody plays Pyro because he sucks
> spy has a shotgun and a smg
> sniper plays like the tf2 sniper using classic (obviously)
> no bonus ducks

A great underrated classic that still has populated servers 24/7. (You can check for players with the in-game server list, bots won't be shown.) TFC offers one-of-a-kind exciting fast paced gameplay with tons of tactics and ways of playing the game. Easy to get into and enjoy, hard to master. However, you're bound to have fun along the way.

Despite old age, the game has a timeless design with a completely customizable appearance; you can choose from many custom models, sprites, skins, textures etc. There are active community servers hosting many of thousands of custom maps total with official game modes like; Capture The Flag, Control point, Attack/Defend, Escort, Deathmatch as well as custom ones like King of the Hill, Hold or Score Ball etc.

If you're interested in skill jumping (with weapons) there are servers hosting maps made for conc-, grenade-, rocket- and pipe jumping. There are also a lot of movement skill maps where you can climb, bunnyhop, strafe, surf, ramp slide and even water glide (shark) on a few servers. Or if you just want to play some random fun maps and mess around, there's escape, puzzle, hide & seek, sniping, role-play, secret hunting, low gravity and so on. As for mods, there's NeoTF (which gives you extra abilities and buildables), AdminOP (Ent Mod, Radio Mod, Hook Mod) and others.

It's not just one of, but The most popular online multiplayer game of all back in 1999 before CS took the crown. Nowadays, there are barely any FPS games that don't get boring after a few hours. TFC will have you keep coming back for more, time and time again. Without relying on achievements or item drops.

This is by far the most interesting game ever made.
Even in 2015, with the outdated graphics, many people keep TFC alive and I am proudly part of them.
Keep going !

This is an amazing game. You just have to know that if you treat it like Team Fortress 2, you're gonna have a bad time! This game is significantly different than Team Fortress 2. It has a more competitive, fast-paced feeling where people try to work together to complete the objective. If you're used to Team Fortress 2, you have to know some differences before you get in game, get your ♥♥♥ wooped then go to write a negative review about this.

Scouts are not designed for combat and are just for completing the objective. Getting a single kill as a scout is hard to do. I personally like this scout concept over the Team Fortress 2 one. The people that still want a fast combat class in the game, don't worry! There's still a class for that. Recently, Team Fortress 2 got a new rifle called the 'Classic'. If you know how that works, you can grasp the concept of the classic sniper pretty well. Although, the TFC sniper does not suck as much as the classic. Soldier is the same except he has two shotguns. On the topic of shotguns, there are two of them. A double-barreled one that does more damage yet a slower fire rate and a slower reload and a single-barreled one that does more damage yet a faster fire rate and a faster reload. Shotguns in this game have no fall-off.

Demoman is pretty similar. Your pipebomb launcher is your stickybomb launcher as Team Fortress 2 players are used to. Except the pipeboms do not stick. You have a single-barreled shotgun and you can place an instakill detpack that explodes in 5, 20, 50 seconds. The detpack can also be used to open entrances. Medic is the most changed class. Medic is for combat, healing, and capturing objectives. Your medkit can infect enemies and you have two shotguns. You also have a conc grenade that you can use to conc jump which we'll go over later. HWGuy has the same difference as soldier. You still have a minigun, but you have two shotguns.

Pyro is weaker than his Team Fortress 2 counterpart. Your main job is to confuse and it is not to wreck. You have an incendiary RPG and you cannot airblast. Spy is the second most different when compared to his Team Fortress 2 counterpart. You have a double-barreled shotgun, a pistol that slows enemies down, and a nailgun. You can disguise still and you can do a crappy feign death that makes you turn into a corpse. No one falls for it and it doesn't even show up in the killfeed. It's good for hiding yet it sucks for tricking. YES BACKSTABS STILL EXIST. Engineer is pretty similar. You cannot upgrade dispensers and teleporters, but you can upgrade sentry guns. Sentry guns can be upgraded in 1 hit as long as you have 130 cells (metal). You also have a weak railgun that's more for finishing off rather than taking on a full health target. Dispensers only give armor and ammo, but no health.

General Differences:

There are grenades. Grenades. Every Team Fortress Classic class has a frag grenade (except scout), and a special grenade. Scout has two special grenades.

Movement is a lot more intricate. You can jump with grenades and bunnyhop.

There are more gamemodes and maps.

On flag capturing maps, you don't take the flag back to your flag and you take it to somewhere else.

There is armor.

Pre-Release Review
It's like the sequel but without alternate weapons or hats. Overall, probably better thanks to that.

Might not be as played as it was 10 years ago, but still has populated servers and a great community left.

As for the gameplay itself, its gamemodes and classes become really hard to master, specially considering the game runs on the GoldSRC engine, but still really fun to play for hours.

Only bad thing about the game that I've seen so far is empty servers and nade spamming. Oh, if you're new to the game, prepare to get rekt thousands of times by all sorts of nades!

EDIT: You can also play with your head upside down. 10/10
