When I got this for Christmas in 1999 along with Half-Life, I didn't even know what it was.
When I got home two days later and installed it, my family wouldnt have access to our computer again.
I used to trade off every 5 deaths or 20 kills with my little brother until the late hours of the night. When I would get in trouble, TFC would be taken away, and I would have to go outside and play. I can still remember my best friends names, though I doubt they still play it. I can even still remember my favorite medic. I remember mulching until I could finally kick the ♥♥♥♥ out of anyone (this was before stat tracking, though I would assume the hours would be in the thousands.) VIP, Climb, and Jump maps were perfect to kill time and be silly with all your friends.
Though I havent played since TF2 came out, I miss this game more than anything ever. Definitely the fondest memory I have as a child. This game made me fall in love with Sierra (VALVE), and to know what real FPS's should be like.
I have purchased this game three times after the initial gift, to install on friends and girlfriends computers so that I could play at their houses.
Buy this even if it's just to have it in your collection and you never play it. At least you can say that you have it and pretend that you are OG.
I love you TFC.

Back before there were virtual hats and special effect weapons, there were 3dmg Flamethrowers and One Shot snipers. This game is TFC (or Team Fortress Classic). With over 100 servers still online, there are many reasons to still play a timeless classic.

13 Years later still the ONLY FPS game on PC that I can actually play for more than 5 mins at a time. In fact I can play for days at a time. The speed, control, strategy and overal logic this game uses is pure beauty. Although it blatantly breaks nearly every realistic law of physics known to man kind, it still easily trumps all of the zombie filled, fantasy land, role-playing nonsense this next generation has grown to obsess over. It makes no sense how fun and enjoyable this game STILL is, regardless of it being ''dead'' and bereft of nearly all organized play (outside off all of the low-lifes wasting everyones time using Perfect Player packages in the pickups ofc). You may need to be born before 1990 or so to truly grasp the awesomeness of this game, but if you do, kudos and thank you for playing. Nuff said.

You must try this game, who knows, maybe you will like it.

The game mechanics are somewhat different from the ones used by TF2, and I could explain most of them:
And yes, I will try to compare this game's features with TF2's, assuming that most players are now coming from it.

Control point maps
In control point maps, instead of staying on a capture point until it gets claimed, you have to bring a flag on it. While this doesn't support much the teamwork strategy because everyone is like "The flag is now mine, I am going to cap", some people play the right way and let the scout do the job while they offer covering fire.

However, some maps like Dustbowl on the first stage are messed up, the RED team camping near the grenade backpack and spamming all the way until the round ends.

Capture the flag
Same as you can see in TF2, that's how CTF acted in all team fortress stages, excepting that, unlike TF2, the place where you have to bring the flag is different from the place the enemy can find your flag, making this a bit confusing for new players.

Even in this moment I bring the enemy flag to my team's flag in 2fort.

Escort
A great gamemode, that in TF2 got brutally converted into payload. (there where alot of reasons I will explain later)
In this gamemode you will have to escort (AKA help a a guy reach a place alive) a class called "Civillian" (yes, TFC has 10 classes).
The civillian features low stats, having only 50 health points, no armor, grenades or weapons other than an umbrella, which is a crowbar reskin.

There are 3 teams:
The escort- only the civillian available. Only 1 can play as the civilian in a game.
The bodyguards - the people who must escort the civillian to the destination. Only soldier, heavy and medics available.
The assasins - must prevent the civillian to reach the destination. Only playable as snipers.

In TF2, the escort mode was scrapped for multiple reasons, such as the fact it had too many limits.
You had class limits, being forced to play as medic, heavy and soldier as bodyguards and as sniper on the assasins.
Also, certain civillians were trolls, refusing to get out from the spawn or jumping in front of the enemy.
No more saying there could only be 1 civillian, releasing many flamewars between players.

Then Valve made a similar gamemode, where you have to 'escort' a bomb cart by staying near it so you can 'push' it, while the other team prevents you for doing that.

Classes

The scout:
Unlike in TF2, the scout was NOT made for agressive combat, not even for combat itself. It has a 'syringegun' called nailgun and a single-barrel shotgun.
Players use the scout's speed and the conc-jump technique to quickly complete the objectives.
Unfortunatelly, the scout has low health, being able to be killed by a single rocket, and lacks double jumping.

The soldier:
The soldier from TF2 seems to not have changed much.
The only differences between them is that the TFC soldier has 2 types of shotguns equipped at once and also has hand grenades.

The pyro:
Oh pyro... poor pyro, the class valve forgot to buff.
You basically have a flamethrower that shoots rapid-fire 'bubbles' of fire, that will never hit someone.
Also, the afterburn is only like 2 seconds and deals like 4 damage/tick.
The pyro also has a rocket launcher that does not need to be realoaded, but deals no damage at all and ignites the enemies that stay in range, but again, the aferburn is weak.
You also have a single barrel shotgun...

The demoman:
A class you will rarely see played, same as in TF2.
People don't know the air detonation technique, which is deadly in TFC.

As the demoman, you have a grenade launcher with a clip of 6 and a sticky launcher with also a clip of 6. They use the same ammo and clip, tough.
The demoamn also has a single-barrel shotgun, and the unique abbility to set a bomb that is able to open new routes on a map by removing certain walls.

Heavy weapons guy:
The heavy is more decent to play that in TF2, you have a plenty of health and armor, and a powerful MIRV granade that creates explosions similar to the Sentry buster from TF2.

You also have 2 shotguns types: The one-barrel and 2-barrel.
You cannot deploy your minigun without firing, so you will stay more in combat rather than camping near corners, like people do in TF2.

Engineer:
The engineer is quite weak compared to the TF2 one. I mean, you have a double barrel shotgun, which is very good, and a railgun, which is the worst weapon in the game due to the slow projectile and low damage.

The sentry upgrades instantly if you have enough 'metal' (called 'cells' in TFC) and is the only upgradable building.
The sentrygun cannot rotate, the engineer being forced to place the sentrygun in corners, or to rotate it manually.

The dispenser is not upgradable and does NOT generate ammo, health and metal, as it does in TF2, so the engineer has to fill it manually.
Also, the enemy can use your dispenser.
You will rarely see an engineer building a dispenser, unless they are really bored, because it does not heal, does not provide ammo unless filled with, and does not give metal, so players preffer to collect backpacks filled with goods at every corner.
The only good thing about dispensers is that they can repair armor (if filled).

The teleporter is not upgradable, but efficient.

The lack of hauling buildings and the addition of grenades in TFC makes it hard to be an engineer, trust me.

Medic:
The medic is actually an upgraded version of the scout, but not worth playing.
The lack of 'assist' in the kill feed and the fact that you don't get points for healing, will end up with you having 0 points even if you were an efficient medic that deserved #1 in TF2.

What do I mean by upgraded scout?
Remind scout's weapons? Nailgun and single barrel shotgun, also a crowbar.
Medic's loadout? SUPER Nailgun, DOUBLE barrel shotgun and the medkit (as melee).

The medkit is the most overpowered weapon.
Why? once hitting an enemy with it, it will become infected, causing his health to drain constantly until dies or healed by a medic. Also, the infection can be spread trough teammates... darn it valve.

Also, the medic is designed more for combat, and healing teammates that are hiding, because you cannot heal while you or your teammate move.

The sniper:
Remember the sniper rifle in TF2 called "the Classic"?
Use it to see how being a sniper is like in TFC.

The spy:
The spy, a kinda broken class, has a tranquilizer gun that slows down enemies, a double barrel shotgun and a knife.
The stupid thing about the spy is that the disguise takes about 5 bloody seconds (while just like 2 in TF2) and you have no cloak feature.
However, the lack of spychecking weapons other than the medic's medkit, may do the job.
You can feign death, but you have to stay down, as a random dead body, and if you move, you actually spin like a drunk hobo and suspicious players will shoot.

The backstab seems to be broken most of the time, resuting in failed facestabs.
Additionally, if an enemy scout or spy runs into you, your disguise is removed.


Only things I don't like on this game (along with the broken classes) are these:
-Lack of resupply cabinets: If someone spawn camps you and you are hurt badly (or infected) you are forced to die.
-Solid hitboxes: You cannot get past teammates as in TF2 and you cannot do the bump-spycheck.
-All classes use the same voice, the only lines you will hear being "Medic!" and "Excuse me, I'm in need of medical attention." thus making it hard to see which class is approaching.


On short, totally worth playing, and if you are bored you can try the FUN servers (which are better than the TF2 ones because the civillian class is used alot in them), and if you totally suck like me, you can enjoy playing singleplayer with bots.

many people might be fond of Team Fortress 2 more, but i think Team Fortress Classic is just as good. i like the gameplay modes, the classes are cool, often fast paced and packed full of action. don't let the graphics fool ya but how they look, cause graphics never really mattered in a game. overall, Team Fortress Classic truely is just that. a classic

Excellent game! It's very similar to TF2, with a few small differences and dated graphics. The graphics are dated )it's a 1999 game) but I like them! Sounds, models and various textures are taken from the original Half-Life. There are a few active servers, especially the EVIL servers. It's not dead anymore and you can still find an active community. You can also find adventure and fun maps! Try it now if you don't mind the old graphics.

While Team Fortress Classic was once at the pinacle of greatness, it has since declined greatly for modern or new gamers. Today, very few servers host this game, and many of them are die-hard veterans which do not seem to welcome new players help populate this mostly dead game. Because of this, simply getting into this game can be difficult, both with the terrible class balance (Soldiers, Engineers, and Heavies dominate) and spam of grenades.

However, there are some good points on this game, of course. The fast paced action is a bit more with the bunny hop exploit which is the dumbest thing in this game, than the actual gameplay personally. But regardless, keeps you on your toes. The classes do have different gameplay styles, but specifically the Medic is played outside of intent as a combat class. This was the same case in early versions of Team Fortress 2, but the Medic was only shut down of its combat strength for good in TF2. Many of these good points are truly up to an opinion, and things such as graphics and its engine are more fact than opinion.

Overall, Team Fortress Classic is more for older gamers, and those familier with Quake and such. Every TFC session I have has me feel like I wasted my time and forced myself to even play. Any good point in this game comes down to more of an opinion standoff for many, and it is very rare do I have a glimmer of fun. If you came from Team Fortress 2, like myself, and wanted to try this out, I recommend you do not. And if I had to score Team Fortress Classic, I would give it a 6/10. Thank you for reading this short review.

Great fun to play, a good community still going after 15 years and lots of different maps to choose from. My one critism is the Medic, when an enemy medic infects you there is no way to get rid of this unless you die, even if you pick up health. But overall, I give it 8/10.
