Tribes: Ascend embraces its heritage by incorporating the same fast-paced combat, tons of maps, weapons, vehicles and unique traversal mechanics. At the same time, it adds a new class-based system. Players can either unlock weapons and such through in-game experience, or by purchasing them outright with real money.
High-flying shooting that requires real skill.
Open levels that allow all sorts of tactics.
Varied classes that fit pretty much any play-style.
Jet-packs and skiing make movement a strategic challenge.
Great variety of classes.
Core combat is exciting and free to play.
A lightning-fast, skill-based shooter.
Everything can be unlocked through playing.
Ranks rob a couple of classes of essential weapons.
Lacking teamwork tools.
Experience accrues slowly.
It's free, but you should consider it a $10 game to greatly enhance enjoyment.
Could use a balance tweak or two.
