    This isn't the sequel Tribes fans need. It's the sequel they deserve.

    GOTTA GO FAST!

    Good grief, I was absolutely addicted to tribes and tribes 2 years ago. I remember playing the mods and carefully and constantly watching the online rankings. At one point I was ranked 43 in the world. I was never addicted to any game more than Tribes.

    I can't believe this is the first time I've heard of this. Thank you Icrontic; thank you tall ass cracker riding a scooter with a pony.

    Starsiege: Tribes is the game that introduced me to my next door neighbor in the dorms in college. He in turn introduced me to his sister years later and a few years after that she became my wife. True Story!

    So. Extremely. Tempting.

    Great review Bobby. Now I'm gonna go try and not download this cause I really can't afford another great game at the moment. Once the semester ends though ... oh boy.

    I loved Unreal Tournament 2K4.. I think it's related. Yes?
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX Icrontian
    A cousin. Gameplay is much faster and high scores come from being a team player vs. raw frags, the latter rarely exceeding mid-teens. Also, maps are huge vs. the arena format of UT.

    I had a real love/hate relationship with Tribes 2. For a while it was my change of pace shooter, but I did find it frustrating that I struggled so mightily to come off the learning curve. I'd find myself getting sniped in open space allot. That said, I'd give a new Tribes game a go, it's still kinda fun to float around, even if I'm terrible.

    Srsly this game.

    I haven't had an FPS I felt like I could get this into since UT. Complete turnaround on pace (I played sniper/camper online [Gazebo got me into it, but {SUF} REPRESENT!], though offline I mostly played :OWO:TallyHo!), but I don't think I'd be interested if it wasn't. It's not that the pacing is fast so much as the movement has a whole new element to it. With the huge amounts of health you have time to react in most cases. It's like someone combined a good racer with a fps, took away the track, and it didn't turn out to be Twisted Metal. Or maybe it's more like SSX-meets-Quake. Or...well, just GO FAST.
