Orange Box

Recommended Posts

So it looks like anyone who preordered the Orange Box on Steam gets their grubby little hands on Team Fortress 2 early. Anyone here have it? How is it?

I didn't think the first team fortress was that good? Is this one supposed to be any different? To me, Counter-Strike has always been the Half-Life mod champion.

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. TFC was the only reason to play a PC in the late 90's for me.

Also the crazy, insane game tactics that only TFC can bring. Idon't think most FPS games aside from Unreal Tournament and Tribes could do that.

Really, this is the only expansion pack I'm excited about. The new Half Life chapter itself should be a lot of fun as always.

I preordered it and I've been playing TF2 today. It's amazing. They took everything good about the first one and made it way better. The graphic style is what really gets me though - it's just incredible. It runs really smooth, it's incredibly hectic, and it's hilarious.

Two words for TF2:

Ridiculously

Awesome.

Quoted for emphasis. It's hard to explain - it's a little more chaotic than before, but you can be even more strategic. They balanced a ton of stuff out and there is so much more character. It's way more fun to play on all levels.

I've only had the chance to play TF2 a bit the past few days but it's amazing so far. Everything is balanced fairly well, though I have some issues with it (mostly changes from TFC). I don't care for the Heavy. He seems too easy to kill right now and his mini gun is horribly innacurate. I tried taking down a sentry gun as one and was killed from full health in about two seconds. Just about any other class would have faired better. I also don't like the lack of off hand grenades for every class, though I'm sure I'll get used to it, even if the Scouts double jump has nothing on Conc jumping.

Thankfully there are a lot of good changes though. Infections are gone, Pyro's are actually useful, Medics are more useful and Spies have the nifty ability to take down sentries. Through it all though, I think my fvourite part is that Snipers are largely untouched. Taking head shots with the old red dot was like coming home for me.
