[Eurogamer] Tribes Ascend Review - Page 2

post #11 of 70
wtb renegades and annihilation mod

Not gonna happen though, as they will never allow modders to mod this game. That was the good thing about tribes, there was so many mods for everyones different playstyles and needs that everyone who played it found a reason to love it. I'm not sure how well they've managed to actually stay true to what tribes was about or if this is just another vain attempt to bring back and whore the tribes franchise name...last time I ran the game it was a bit choppy, it didn't initially impress me though. Could just because Starsiege: tribes is one of my favorite games of all time, perhaps it can get people who haven't played the first two REAL tribes games a way to explore the unique gameplay either way.

Is it just me or does Ascend feel like a slow pace Shifter/Renegade mod with the tons of crazy classes and weapons? I think Ascend fails to please original tribes vets who want original base.

Maybe I am just spoiled by my fond memories of tribes and nothing will ever live up to it tongue.gif

Yeah, this wasn't very good. I was in the Alpha, Beta, ect.

Very repetitive, very little of it is dependent on the player, it's about 70% luck, 30% skill. Lots of Gimmicky stuff.

Having to unload 4-5 clips to kill a guy gets old after awhile.

Hm... I can kill a heavy as a light player in less than 10 seconds... if you know how to shoot and lead w the projectiles, it's a blast... I also don't mind the automatic weapons. The game is a blast when the teams work together. It truly is a team game.

I do hate good snipers though... if you're health gets too low and you ski too high... dead. Haha

Or maybe it's 90% skill and your lack of it makes it feel like 70% luck.

btw OP.. where is source for the article?
edit: this is it
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-04-16-tribes-ascend-review

Sorry, I had the source in my post, but it's above the quote instead of below, which I think might throw some people off.


Yes the sniper is very weak, maybe with the upgrades to it it could be better though.
And while it may seem like luck at first, it really is dependent mostly on skill. I've gotten significantly better at hitting moving targets than I was when I first started playing.

post #20 of 70
great game only it doesnt run smooth..

what do you need for this game to play on high? 2x GTX 580?

i have the lowest setting and i still only get 30fps, with my 2x 6850..
soo badly optimized..
