"Tribes: Ascend is a highly enjoyable and refreshingly quick shooter. It, as a free game, puts the majority of paid first person shooters to shame. Microtransactions are used, for the most part, tastefully, and aren’t too much of a hassle when you remember that you haven’t paid anything for the privilege of playing the game. It’s not completely unique in being a fast-paced FPS, but it implements its mechanics skilfully to create a great online multiplayer experience. Best of all, you have nothing to lose by downloading it for free, so there’s no reason not to give it a shot."
