Reviewer’s Thoughts

When I first played Tribes: Ascend, I totally underestimated the quality of the game’s performance. I’ve played shooters professionally for years, yet I couldn’t hit a damn thing in this game at first. First instincts told me Tribes: Ascend had poor registration. This was a grave mistake! Not only does Ascend have smooth and clean game play, but its registration is spot on. They use a very interesting mechanic for ballistics which was introduced long ago in earlier versions of tribes. I haven’t spent much time playing with this type of shooting mechanics.

However, I definitely feel good about Ascend and I think that HiRez Studios released a very unique and powerful game. With a variety of choices and customization options, Tribes: Ascend ranks on my top 10 shooters of all time.


  • Variety of customizations
  • Breath taking graphics
  • Great multiplayer fun


  • Steep Learning Curve
  • Strange Shooting Mechanics
