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

2 August 2012
  • Conclusion: This new incarnation of Tribes seems destined for niche success and, in the long term, it will prove whether the combination of well-developed shooter mechanics, skiing and jetpack jumping can be sustained by drawing a large player base using the free-to-play model while persuading a limited number...
  • Pros: + Focus on movement, + Complex shooter mechanics, + Quick and deadly
  • Cons: - Deaths required to learn mechanics, - Lack of voice chat, - Locked content

Tribes: Ascend

BGamer
29 August 2013
  • Summary: O regresso triunfal de uma das primeiras séries a desfazer-se da campanha a solo e a concentrar-se exclusivamente na componente multijogador. Com um modelo gratuito e uma jogabilidade particular e original, Tribes: Ascend merece a atenção dos fãs de FPS.
  • Pros: RÁPIDO E CONSTANTE - Tribes: Ascend apresenta uma forma muito própria de nos movermos pelos cenários. O objetivo consiste em ganhar balanço e velocidade no chão e utilizar o terreno para nos lançarmos pelo ar. O resultado é um jogo extremamente rápido e dinâmico que exige o domínio do movimento p...
  • Cons: ARMAMENTO PESADO - Por causa da jogabilidade particular de Tribes: Ascend , há uma série de armas que nunca chegam a ser relevantes durante as partidas. Metralhadoras ou armas de precisão não chegam a ser eficazes nas mãos da maior parte dos jogadores porque é difícil acertar em alvos em constant...
