    "Team Fortress 2 is a great FPS game that despite its age, holds on quite well and proves to be quite entertaining for both beginners and experts. There are many things to do and once you think you'd found it all, there's yet more stuff to find. Good for office downtime sure but you may not want to go back to work once you start playing!"

    "I was looking for a good game that I can play with my co-workers during down-time at the office, and came across this. It really isn't practical for this sort of application, though, because it's pretty intensive and distracting. It's easy to become over-absorbed in it, and work ends up on the back-burner. Not good at all for my purposes."

I like that there are many different maps and also ways to setup your character, this keeps the game interesting. If you like older style games this is one that is quite good and will give you hours of fun. "
