Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Seconded. Awesome game; even if COD has had me somewhat distracted this last month...
  3. I've been playing this, this weekend. Thought it was pump to be honest.

    What's so good about it? Why is it so popular, as I'm wondering if maybe I missed something?

    Obviously I can't exactly force you to appreciate the TF goodness, but reasons I like it include:

    a) It looks amazing, in that cartoony way.
    b) It's funny as fook, particularly when you have a look through some of the archive material (Google "Team Fortess - Meet The Team"). And show me another game where you can throw a jar of piss at someone and then whack them with a kukri.
    c) It doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither does its player base. When you compare it to the likes of COD, you don't get anywhere near so much bitching or comparisons of e-Peni.
    d) You don't tend to get many cheaters - in fact I can't remember ever seeing one. I've had COD a month and I've already seen four confirmed aimbots.
    e) Map sizes and variation make for some impressive matches.
    f) It runs like a dream on practically any PC made in the last four years.

    I'll stop there.
  5. I would get it.. but my graphics card has gone winky on me. :(
