Same... but I loved it. So much fun the way it was set up.

To the comment about it being "more like UT than anything in the tribes series" .... maybe that's a good thing? UT kind of was the god of multiplayer, deathmatch style FPS games next to Quake III Arena.

Why would you say that? So he likes it, what is it to you? I liked Tribes 2 better than Tribes. Big friking deal. It is mentalities like this why I don't like gamers. To get upset at such a subjective topic is insane.

I had a lot of fun with Tribes 2. I wouldn't say it was a better game than Tribes. It sure had a lot of bugs and lag issues. I just had a blast playing it with my friends.

I still remember how horrible launch was for that game. It was unplayable out of the box. You can still play the game with TribesNext I should reinstall the game... I have the original currently installed.

I have zero problems with tribes 2 on launch.. and thought of it as a great sequel to the first. I thought of it as just bigger and badder in all ways. Course I was a 3dfx user at the time, if you relied on d3d then your life was a bit worse, with major performance issues and glitches.

Tribes 1/2 is pretty much if UO and team fortress had kids. Kids..with jet packs. The game offered many different weapon types, restricting some to the armor type you were wearig. The jet packs made the game, and the game made every bit of use out of them. Maps would have many mountains and hills, bases would be on top of said peaks or suspended high in the air. You had a radar and motion sensing systems you had to maintain, and destructable generators to power your systems defenses as well as inventory stations. it was all so glorious!

grabbing that beta now!

Quoted from the person who preferred the original over the second. I don't think you would be happy unless it looked like minecraft.

My comment had nothing to do with the graphics. As for Tribes 2 vs Tribes 1, the original was a better game hands down. There are still more people playing the original to this day.

As for Tribes 2 release, it was well known that they had major issues upon release. They had multiple patches relatively quick after the game hit shelves.
