    what? way worth it. great multiplayer. it's got lots of good servers, players, and some good mods to keep it fresh. i prefer the vanilla game myself though. it also helps that the devs continually pump out fresh content..

    worth it dude

    it's an fps with 9 different character classes - each can do crazy shit like an engineer that builds sentries, a spy that can disguise as the enemy team, and a medic that can heal and make people invincible. There's more standard classes too like Sniper and Soldier (which just has a rocket launcher) so you can get fancy or not.

    Valve is also doing these updates for characters where you get new weapons/equipment randomly while playing or through achievements. You can customize your guy a little bit and he have different abilities depending on which weapons you equip. Siiick

    :dunno: bought it months ago. played it maybe 4 times. I just don't enjoy games where you have to sit and shoot someone with a chain gun for 30 seconds before you kill them.

    different classes for different people. if you're a run and gun kind of guy, soldier or pyro is your class. theres sniper. if you like killing people secretly, theres a spy where you can disguise as the other team and backstab. theres a scout thats really fast and can dominate if youre good. engineer if you dont have mad fps skillz.

    you can hate whatever you want.

    just bugs me when people pass judgment on things they don't understand.

    There is more to it then that. You are only referring to a particular class....but 30 seconds? I can take out any class in less then 2 seconds, but if their clear across the map as the "heavy" class I won't hit shit. It takes about 4-8 hits depending on class and if their being healed by a medic. See each class in the game has their own set of strengths and weaknesses, know that can help you successfully kill and/or avoid being killed in the game.

    A few class differences are hitpoints, movement speeds, hitboxes, and weapons. They all require different types of strategies to use effectively. Also, when using a weapon there is a chance that one of your shots will critical strike, however some classes and certain weapons will critical strike under certain circumstances. Snipers crit with a headshot, spys instant kill with a stab from behind (any class), etc.

    This isn't one of "those" types of games. For those games, I assume you mean games like Quake or Unreal Tournament. The only similarities is the fact that it is an FPS and there are health and ammo packs....after that the similarities disappear.

    It is a fantastically unique experience, the art style is timeless, and the gameplay is completely depending on what class you enjoy. Do you like camping and supporting, be an engineer...do you just like camping and shooting from a far, be a sniper...do you like to go headstrong in the fight and cause chaos, be a pyro. All in all, the game is wroth 50 bucks IMO. It has been supported since it's release on Oct 31st of 2007, which new maps, new weapons, new map tips (payload, arena maps), and much more. All with no additional cost to the user, it is something that is rarely seen in the gaming industry anymore.

    Honestly just pick it up.... I almost bought it for the ps3 last week and I've been playing it since release.

    One of the best games out in the last few years.

    Near perfect balance with counters and unlocks. A class for every person and every situation.

    Every few months I pick it up again and play for a few weeksstraight. It's a great long time multiplayer experience that's always being updated.



    It took me 2 years to play the spy for over 3 hours and I've clocked 100's of hours in this game... and now I absolutely love the spy. Each time you play you get a whole new view of the game.
