Thumbs down Tribes series.... Vengeance

Sorry just had to make a thread. Ive been a big fan of Tribes 1 and then 2 but I delayed buying Vengeance because I was playing WoW.... Well I finally bought it on ebay for $.50 and holy **** does it ****ing SUCK!

DO NOT BUY IT, it is the worst most ****ed up game. and theres only about 10 active servers for the entire game? wtf? $50 retail for a game no one even plays....

They totally ****ed tribes over...

Maybe this is where they wanted to take the game, but its horrible... Theres only like 5 guns per class... There's no engineering anymorre... Its a whole different game, you cant even jump now, just 'ski'. The ski part is kinda cool, but I liked the jumping...

Its not bad at all... its just "small" so it never caught on. Tribes/Tribes2 had these huge maps that you could play a ton of people and still have a "hunt em out" type thing going on (except Broadside, but I loved that map). Vengeance they dramatically reduced the size of the maps and the Tribes faithfuls really didn't care for it (which iis why I never bought it... I didn't like the small feel to things). I did dig the grapplnig hook though once I figured out how to use it right.

It was huge during beta testing... servers were full constantly. Then after Beta nobody designed our favorite mods for it (aka Shifter FTW) and it died out due to lack of support.

The game has the same guns the original TRIBES did, very few, and the modders went and made things like Renegade and Shifter and that kept us all interested withs sniper rifles, sensor jammers, nukes, etc.

It just never caught on and unfortunately the game suffered because the parts we loved from the established T1/T2 mods never were developed for Vengeance.

I'd love to see someone just take TRIBES 1, drop it into the VENGEANCE engine and reskin it and have the Shifter mod.

I'd buy it.

Meltdown 2 Mod on T2 was insane. Anywho, Vengeance wasn't a bad game, it just didn't stick to the Tribes formula. They tried to make a crappy campaign when Tribes is all about the multiplayer. You bought it for 50 cents, so you can't really complain. I do agree with you though.

Tribes 1 (shifters_v1) is my fav game of all time, so I can say with some validity that Vengeance was a lot of fun. I only played the demo, though. Flag running is a ****ing BLAST in vengeance with the great lines they have set up.
