The GFX are a lot better and it runs a lot smoother than tribes 2. The glow effect on some objects is amazing. Im definately buying this when it comes out. Gameplay is on par with the first tribes which says a lot for the game. Im very impressed with it so far.

Well that's your loss. Tribes was an amazing game for multiplayer and I am looking forward to this one.

Uhmmm, techincally one could agure that its a DX7 game. The only DX8 features are used to reduce the number of pass when its redners terrain info. The rest is more DX7 (ie no other pixel, vertex shadders used).

But would like to hear about what you thought after you tried it...
