  • Summary: A family in conflict. A galaxy at war. The endless war has begun. The Empire and the Tribes now fight as much over resources as they do for revenge. But when a war spans generations, it becomes a mother's quest to discover the truth about the conflict, and an heir's duty to break free fromA family in conflict. A galaxy at war. The endless war has begun. The Empire and the Tribes now fight as much over resources as they do for revenge. But when a war spans generations, it becomes a mother's quest to discover the truth about the conflict, and an heir's duty to break free from the cycle of vengeance. Play as multiple characters across two generations of a family at war in the first ever TRIBES single player experience. Physics system seamlessly integrates jet-packing, running, skiing and piloting into one dynamic experience. New weapons and vehicles add to the classic TRIBES arsenal and guarantee a fight like no other. Powered by an enhanced Unreal (tm) engine, stunning visuals take you into a never before seen chapter of TRIBES history. Battle in vast locations from underground caverns and forgotten cities to acid wastelands and mighty coliseums. Join the war online with extensive multiplayer action for up to 32 players.

  1. Hardcore action gamers can expect 12-15 hours of intense combat for the single-player campaign, but once you go online there is no limit to the fun you can have with this game. Much like the games before it, Tribes: Vengeance is a virtual sandbox just waiting for the mod community to get their talented hands on it.
  2. Easily one of the best first person shooters I've seen in a long time. The last time I had this much fun with a shooter was with "Half-Life" when it first came out. The great controls, involving storyline for the single-player game, good sound track, and the multiplayer options available make for an impressive game.
  3. Whether or not the single player was necessary (it certainly wasn’t unwelcome), T:V is definitely a highly enjoyable multiplayer experience.
  4. A great game. There are some missteps that a later patch or expansion should definitely address, but right out of the box the look, gameplay style and level of depth make this an easy buy for PC action gamers.
  5. The likes of "Planetside" and "Unreal Tournament 2004" have stolen some of its thunder, but Vengeance is still unique enough to recommend to any multiplayer shooter fan.
  6. I must admit they proved that there were changes that needed to be made as this is clearly the best Tribes game out there.

    If the online game had been at least as good as its’ predecessors, this title would have received top marks. Now all Tribes: Vengeance can boast is one of the best single-player story modes currently available on the PC.

    Excellent game. While different from the previous two, it stands in its own light. Overall, I think it lives up to the Tribes name. I Excellent game. While different from the previous two, it stands in its own light. Overall, I think it lives up to the Tribes name. I wouldn't be as satisfied if they just released a rehash of the same old game. The changes and additions made to T:V are welcome in my book. Expand

    I think that the beta is great. Its just like T1 in a good way. All the T2 problems have been fixed. Unlike someone else said, i think T:V I think that the beta is great. Its just like T1 in a good way. All the T2 problems have been fixed. Unlike someone else said, i think T:V requires more teamplay and tactics than other Tribes games. And Heavies have been able to solo since Tribes 1. :P As a veteran t1/t2 player i think this game will simply rock. Single-Player is a nice bonus too. Must buy. Expand

    A good addition to the series. Fun gameplay with a few noteworthy issues outside the actual game that need to be addressed such as demo playback.

    The game isn't perfect, but it has much more merits than shortcomings.
    Firstly, you can fly. Do you remember jet packs in Duke Nukem 3D? In Tribes: Vengeance, you can fly much higher, farther, longer, and often. This feature makes game play much more vertical, which is very fun.
    Secondly, the game has a good story, in past and today, with several different protagonists (including a very young girl without any weapon, a cyborg-assassin, etc).
    Thirdly, the game has a good, though short sound track. Plus, the game has a lots of free content (hundreds maps, skins, etc) via TribesVengeance.com.

    Even if the single player is repetitive and boring the multiplayer is well-balanced and fun.

    Horrible Gameplay. Horrible Map Balance. Horrible Multiplayer Experience. Irrational has dug the grave for the Tribes franchise. Thanks a lot.
