Rating: ★★★★☆

Team Fortress 2 is a very old game that was released under 2007, but it still offers great fun. This team co-op FPS-game was ground breaking in it’s glory days and it’s still played by hundreds of thousands gamers around the world. It never reached to the esports levels, even though it’s made by Valve (like CS:GO), but it’s without any doubt a free game that you have to try.

About the game

Team Fortress is played on numerous of maps with different game modes, such as capture the flag, King of the hill, Control point and payload mode. You start the game by chosing the game mode and which server to play on. When you get in on the server, you chose a character to play with and then all hell breaks lose.

There are nine different characters

Scout – A fast little guy with close range weapons that is hard to target and makes a lot of damage if he comes close.
Soldier – A mad bazooka weilding soldier that does loads of damage and has the ability to jump high by shooting towards the ground.
Pyro – This maniac with a gas mask does insane amount of damage to everyone that gets close to him. The spy hates this guy.
Demoman – A heavy grenader with diffent kinds of grenade launchers and the most powerful melee weapons in the game.
Heavy – This Russian minigun maniac clears the path for the team and is considered a tank in this game.
Engineer – Creates powerful turrets that targets enemies automatically. He can also create dispensers where the team can refill ammo and health.
Medic – All co-op games needs a healer, and here he is! And do not underestimate his damaging capabilities.

System requirements

Good thing about this game you can get it for both PC and Mac, without using bootcamp. The game runs perfectly in both Windows and MacOS and it doesn’t require a lot from your system.

Minimal requirements:

  • CPU: 1.7 GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • VIDEO CARD: Modern Mobo GFX

We obviously recommend a bit more power then above. But there are very few modern machines that can’t run this game. We even tried it with Macbook 12″, with mobile components and it works like a charm.
