Summary: i think the game is great because i have played all of the tribes vengeance. The Beta is great it is also one of the best games i have ever played in my life in that case i give Tribes Vengeance a 10 out of 10
Summary: Tribes 1, Amazing!! Tribes 2 and Tribes 2 expansion, Astounding... The build up to vengeance, intense. the graphics, stunning, gameplay and physics of high quality... Tribes 3: Vengeance... a pathetic, horrible, amazing terrible game. A hollowed husk of its predessesors, devoid of interesting, fun gameplay- Nothing like T1 and T2. The weapons? Ruined... mostly removed and replaced by terrible additions The vehicles? A laughing stock...
Summary: I was terribly dissapointed in T:V. The new dagger thing is a poor substitute for T2's classic shocklance. And the flying along with the grappling hook is overall clumsy compared to the previous physics. Downgraded teamwork, in contrast to the old Tribes where a clan had to use teamspeak to be sucessful in matches. There's also a much easier learning curve, where there can be several good players without dedicating too much of their time.
Summary: Excellent game. While different from the previous two, it stands in its own light. Overall, I think it lives up to the Tribes name. I wouldn't be as satisfied if they just released a rehash of the same old game. The changes and additions made to T:V are welcome in my book.
Summary: I think that the beta is great. Its just like T1 in a good way. All the T2 problems have been fixed. Unlike someone else said, i think T:V requires more teamplay and tactics than other Tribes games. And Heavies have been able to solo since Tribes 1. :P As a veteran t1/t2 player i think this game will simply rock. Single-Player is a nice bonus too. Must buy.
Summary: Granted, the game is still in beta, however my first impression is that this will be more like Quake and UT2k4 than any of the tribes games. Hard core Tribes fans may be disappointed by the lack of teamwork elements included in the game. T:V still has jetpacks, vehicles, and 3 ?classes? of armor to choose from? but much less in variety compared to previous tribes games.
