Anyone remember Tribes? - May 27th 2009, 10:46 AM

Anyone remember the old Tribes series of games by Starseige and then Sierra. Adding a Z axis to FPS's, best idea ever.
Also, those games had me replacing swearwords with 'shazbot' for years ^^;


I wish Tribes Vengeance wasn't so full of bots =(

I wish they released Tribes Vengeance at a different time than Half Life2...which ate the market up.

It always seemed like they released the games in Beta form they threw patches at it.

I can't say I remember it, but what do you mean by 'adding a Z-Axis to FPS'....Did you have have to adjust your aim for distance? o_O

Not quite, basically you could fly for limited periods of time, it added a whole new dimension to gameplay.

A first person shooter that allows you to fly? Sounds like Splinter Cell with cheats enabled

Every player has a jetpack and you've got an energy bar.
Find a demo of Tribes Vengeance, there's bound to be one rolling around somewhere.

I remember wanting to get it really bad, but never actually doing so (I think because my *ahem* overprotective mom wouldn't let me).

I'll go get a demo and play it. I like retro FPS games. (as long as they have a y-axis, I get motion sickness or something playing old games with no y-axis, like Doom and Quake)

I had it for PS2, then it got destroyed and it turns out nobody sells it anymore.
I miss it a lot, it's probably the first FPS with vehicles I actually liked.

Who remembers Riverdance on the original game?
Going into Light armour and driving a speeder hurtling past at breakneck speeds, grabbing the flag and legging it with every single other member of the opposing team chasing you xD
Ahh, good times...
