  • Summary: Run, jump, and fly across massive, boundless battlefields in jetpack-equipped armors as you compete with, and against, up to 16 players from around the world. A true team game, you choose between different roles and different game types, including 11-mission single-player campaign and the all-time-favorite, online Capture the Flag via the network adaptor.

  1. If you want to get online and play action games against other people, Tribes Aerial Assault is a must. The consoles have never seen anything like it before.
  2. With huge levels, good game modes (Capture the Flag, Capture and Hold, Team Deathmatch and regular Deathmatch) and the speedy jet air packs, Tribes: Aerial Assault is the kind of online game I've been waiting for.
  3. Sixteen-player online deathmatch is truly a sight to behold, and you should probably think about keeping anyone prone to seizures or heart palpitations out of the room because things move real fast. [Nov 2002, p.116]
  4. It’s funny, but I swear Aerial Assault looks better than Tribes 2 PC. The levels aren’t as big because of memory limitations, but the game looks just as good everywhere else.
  5. 72
    Certainly not a replacement for "Tribes 2," nor is it a step forward for the series' gameplay in general, but it's a good enough introduction for console gamers.
  6. A solid FPS, although it lacks a bit in the level design department. This leads to a potentially boring online experience.
  7. The biggest problem I have with the game is that these vast planes are often too vast, making for some occasionally dull moments. [Nov 2002, p.86]

    This game is awesome, single player botmatch and campaign are so-so, but online multiplayer is great.

    I have rather enjoyed my experience with Tribes AA. I have played many FPS for PS2 and feel that Tribes AA meets or exceeds (in some respects) any of the multiplayer features of any of the other games. The promoted teamwork and vast environments make strategy the key. The offline one player campaign is pretty good, but there are other games with better one player campaigns. The key to this game is the multiplayer game play (offline or online). Other games feature multiplayer play as an add-on, where Tribes AA features it. I have always enjoyed taking on the world with a friend or two and I was not disappointed when I checked out Tribes AA. The online capabilities definitely keep the game interesting and increase the overall longevity of the game. All in all, if you are a fan of other strong FPS multiplayer games (i.e. TimeSplitters 2, Red Faction II, Socom-online, Unreal Tournament, Quake III) this is a must game to have. See you on the battle field! Expand

    I haven't really played this game, but I've played on the PC and I'm sure it'll be just as fun! ;)

    I think people are giving this game a little too much credit. It is original in it's play and has some neat twists, but in the one player mode it can become repetitive and stale quickly. Multi player on the other hand IS fun, but if you play 1P most ot the time you will loose interest in a couple of weeks. Good, but not the best in the genre. Expand
