Although it was in development for what seemed like forever, Team Fortress 2 managed to charm gamers with its quirky visual style and fast-paced action. It offered a nice change of pace from the super serious Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 type games that currently dominate the online space.
Though they made their mark developing realistic war games, D.I.C.E. is taking a stab at the sillier side of full scale conflict with Battlefield Heroes, a game that follows in TF2's rather sizable footsteps. GamePro was on hand at a recent GDC event where they got to see the game in action, and early indications are, it may have what it takes to carve out its own cartoony niche.
