Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2: Team Fortress 2 - Class Warfare

Part 3 of IGN's five-part Half-Life 2 spectacular! In today's edition, we get an in-depth look at each of Team Fortress 2's nine (9) character classes!

Team Fortress 2 is a fast-paced class-based online shooter. Valve's challenge in reviving the long-dormant TF franchise was creating a great experience no matter which of the nine classes a player chose. Along with making each class visually different, Valve managed to infuse each class with its own personality. Each requires a different type of strategy; but all nine classes are useful. And, more importantly, each is fun to play.

Though Valve continues to work on balancing issues, TF2 at this stage in development feels fairly close to having it nailed down. Any class, when used properly, can be effective (and deadly). Some deal destruction in obvious forms (say, a giant machinegun), while others do their damage indirectly. Thanks to a comprehensive stat-tracking tool, you'll be able to measure every aspect of your performance.

Of course, nothing can replace the joy of laying waste to another opponent. TF2 gives the added satisfaction of a kill cam. Snipe an opponent and the last thing they see before respawning is a still shot of your murderous pose. Valve is considering allowing the shots to be saved, so great moments in TF2 mayhem can be preserved for the next decade.

Though October is a long time to wait for Team Fortress 2, it's never too early to choose your favorite class. To that end, we've assembled details and impressions on all nine classes.
