Tribes: Ascend Review

hardcoreshooter.com
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

Tribes: Ascend

ccgr.org
29 August 2012
  • 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. The thing that set the original Tribes apart was the size/scope of the maps, the various classes, weapons, and the ground/flying vehicles. It also allowed players to mod the game in many ways, which kept people playing the game.
  • Pros: Very solid fast paced shooter with a lot of versatility and various classes to choose from.
  • Cons: No mod support.

Tribes Jetpacks Its Way Back To Relevancy

Game Informer
16 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Reinvigorate the innovative shooter franchise by pursuing the free-to-play model Graphics: It can’t compete with games like Battlefield 3 in the graphics department, but the art direction lends itself well to a number of different machines Sound: Guns sound more electrical than gunpowder based, so they lack the same feeling of danger and force Playability: There is a learning curve to mobility, but once you get the hang of skiing, you’ll wonder how you ever...

Tribes Ascend

  • Excerpt: Lost amidst all the hoopla over the XCOM and Syndicate franchises being dusted off was news that a cult favorite first-person shooter called Tribes was being revived as a free-to-play experience. Back in 1998, those who picked it up were given a sneak peek at what would ultimately become the future of the genre. Now eight years after its last entry, can Tribes: Ascend maintain relevancy?
