Evan Lahti: "Overall, though, I admire the way Hi-Rez hasn’t allowed Tribes’ free to play accessibility to translate into dumbed-down mechanics; it’s a damn pleasure to play an FPS that reveres movement again. The entry point for skiing is relatively low for anyone who plays shooters, but the skill ceiling is appropriately high. Masters of fast-movement throw explosives at their own feet to achieve max momentum. Expert flag-runners drill to find good routes. It all lends Tribes an aspirational quality I love: when you see someone moving fluidly, you want to get better."
