Arguably one of the best single player campaigns ever created (hyperbole, or no?)
It's probably not going ot happen given how rapidly the cheating killed the multiplayer population. The single player campaign is excellent though and I'd definitely dig another one of those too.Popped on a few months ago. Surprisingly found plenty of MP matches.
Really wish they'd get a TF 3 going for us.
The official servers were taken down, but there's a community made mod called "Northstar" that opens up private servers. The game is still alive and well thanks to this.I thought those servers had been taken down? It was all run by a private group or something? Or was the TF1?
Ah. that's what it was. +1The official servers were taken down, but there's a community made mod called "Northstar" that opens up private servers. The game is still alive and well thanks to this.
Honestly I stopped playing online shooters years ago.... except for this game. It's a gem for sure and for $3 it's a no brainer.
The story and single player campaign was the best (and most emotionally charged) one since Deux Ex in 1999. Perhaps even better than Mass Effect, too.
Didn’t the online multiplayer morph overnight into Apex Legends during the whole Battle Royale craze? I remember Fortnite did a similar pivot and the rest is history.
But yeah surprisingly good campaign and gameplay from a game that didn’t get much hype before launch. Ran great and played fast on the hardware of the time. Pretty sure TF1 was online only with mixed reviews, so the real surprise was the campaign for TF2. Ex-infinity Ward COD guys I believe, haven’t heard much from them since but would’ve loved another TF game from them.
Aaaaahhhhh, of course, it's an EA game on Steam, so it still requires Origin. I keep forgetting about that shit. Especially when a few rare EA games on Steam like SW Squadrons do NOT require Origin. I fucking hate when a game is on Steam and still needs Ubisoft uPlay/Connect or EA Origin or whatever the fuck else.Purchased a copy and requested refund after install because it was unplayable as downloaded. My mistake for missing the part below. No thanks. Bad enough we have to deal with Valve/Steam. EA and the other devs that require yet another online account and launcher can go pound sand.
They now have a "mini client" that runs in the background for most of them. TF2 is old enough it doesn't, IIRC.Aaaaahhhhh, of course, it's an EA game on Steam, so it still requires Origin.

I am familiar with this mini-client (I think it was called a "thin client"). I had to use it when I played SW Jedi: Fallen Order on Steam. At the time I also had full Origin installed (cuz of when I paid $5 for Titanfall 2 and $5 for another game, one of the Battlefields), and the mini version fucked up the full version, which fucked up the mini version, and then I had to play a fun game of Windows Safe Mode and registry editing to fix that whole mess of shit, and rid myself of both (luckily I had already finished Fallen Order by that time). I don't remember the details of that whole situation cuz it was a few years ago, but that was the first and last time I ever used any version of Origin.They now have a "mini client" that runs in the background for most of them.
I've always said that it was one of the best campaigns I've played in recent times. All the talk was about how Apex Legends would provide the revenue stream to get a sequel up and going (the internet was hopeful) and then a chunk of the team went back to Infinity Ward. SMHFinished it over the weekend. Excellent SP campaign. Too bad a sequel is unlikely to happen.
