  1. Those with the ultimate system and mad teamplay skills will eat this up, though; it's a triumph of teamwork, dynamic gameplay and some serious strategy.
  2. Redefines the team-based warfare genre with its vehicle combat, high-adrenaline missions, and mind-blowing graphics that will have you drooling over your keyboard, while dodging spinfusor discs. Shazbot, this game kicks ass!
  3. Tribes 2 rocks. I have no choice but to come right out and say it.
  4. An addictive and challenging step forward for team-oriented shooters. [June 2001, p.87]
  5. A deeply challenging and unforgiving game that rewards perseverance but leaves those looking only for a little diversion writhing in agony.
  6. Successfully fuses brains with brawn, and delivers one heck of a memorable team-based, multiplayer experience.
  7. Most of the pieces are in place but they are rough around the edges -- even after seven patches. If, however, you are able to overcome the technical difficulties, a great game can be found.

    This is a truly awesome game. The only downfall is the high system requirements which prevent some computers from running this game.

    This game is cool. I had "Tribes 1" before, and I think this one is better.

    innovate game play (skiing, jet-packs) combined with large maps, solid vehicles, semi customisable bases and deployable equipment. huge player counts (forget 8v8 or 16v16- it is usually 32v32 or even 64v64). very, very customisable characters (choose each and every weapon, grenade, pack) that can be changed between quickly (without even having to suicide like other games of genre). easy to use, very useful pre-set voice commands, huge scope for teamwork. it had it all, and is still (in my opinion) the best online game ever made -comparing it to everything to date.

    And still one of the best Multiplayer online shooters around, and the AI isnt too shabby either.

    Epic game, great player control, tough learning curve, but it's epic once you get the hang of it. Still being played today. The community has set up their own master server, that's how awesome it is! Collapse
