Tribes: Ascend Review

Hardcore Shooter
18 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Tribes: Ascend has a lot going for it, especially for a freemium game. As great as it is, though, there are still issues that prevent it from reaching its full potential.
  • Pros: Best use of a freemium model I’ve seen yet, Thrill-focused gameplay in large, expansive levels, The “skiing” mechanic is fun in and of itself
  • Cons: Graphics look bland and cliche, Levels all seem to have too similar a structure, Hasn’t seen much new content since release

Softpedia

  • Pros: + Focus on movement, + Complex shooter mechanics, + Quick and deadly
  • Cons: - Deaths required to learn mechanics, - Lack of voice chat, - Locked content

  • Excerpt: I don’t want any of you to underestimate how important that feel is to the sum of Tribes: Ascend’s beautiful whole. In Tribes, you don’t move – you dance. Every dash for a flag is a smooth supersonic slide, every escape from a booby trapped generator room is a ballet.

  • Excerpt: Back in the late 1990's, most people I knew were playing Unreal Tournament or some version of Quake. However, through the various LAN parties I attended, I was introduced to Starsiege: Tribes.

Tribes: Ascend (PC) - Review

VGChartz
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Many gamers are understandably upset by the high price of a new game nowadays. Not all games, however, sell for full retail price. Some are even free, and Tribes: Ascend is one of these games. It’s also considerably more enjoyable than most online games for which you would pay money.

  • Excerpt: Wonderful, breath-clutching games of chicken happen along the z-axis in Tribes: Ascend. You’re hovering, the guy you want to kill is hovering, and you each have a few sips of battery juice left in your jetpack.
