It is not the next tribes in my opinion; rather maybe something of a hybrid
of tribes and UT. To me anything produced by the unreal engine looks and
feels cartoonish. Movement while dueling and flag D feels a little
sluggish, though using routes and speed packs seems to produce nice speeds.
Also there are a lot of background sounds that are easily confused with
action close to you while they are not. Awareness is drastically diminished
from tribes (which may be due to the learning curve) and many times I will
die and never see my opponent, or know from what weapon, and this can happen
while skiing full out. I like the varied terrain and building structures,
ruins, etc. The inventory system suxors period. While I don't use
vehicles, which slants my view, I appreciate that they are vulnerable and
can be brought down without an act of God. I have not tried all weapons
yet, just the basic disk, chain and grenade launcher; oh, and the blaster
that acts more like a shotgun I think, which is great for finishing off at
close range an already hurt enemy. The launcher has some range and is very
dangerous to cappers it seems. I am not sure why they put those long flares
on the jets and they distract me a lot, probably cause I'm old and half
blind. It is comical to hit an MA and watch the jets careening the carcass
off in uncontrolled descent. I say if you are looking for the next great
installment of tribes you will probably be disappointed, but if you are able
to play the game for what it is then it will be fun. It may be something
that has to grow on you. There was even a little of that going from T1 to
T2, and like T2 there is time and opportunity for T:V to grow. I will
probably play it.

Probably a little too early to say I don't like it...

Tribes in name only so far. It may grow on me, but first impressions are too
similar to my first impressions of UT2004:

Missed opportunity.
Disappointing.

I'll give it a few weeks. If I'm still playing this time next month there
may be hope for it. Meanwhile I'm not uninstalling Tribes 2

Yes, and for now only to subscribers. You can subscribe for a month for
$6.95 or wait a few days and it will be available for download by
nonsubscribers too on FP, although you will still have to do the freebie
account with FP. You have to also sign up for and receive a key during the
download process to install it.
