MMGN.com: "Few people recognise the importance of the Tribes series in pioneering the sci-fi shoot’em’up genre, but the latest game in the series -- a free to play title -- will certainly change that, with a strong showing in all aspects of gameplay. Subtitled Ascend, this title is a class-based shooter revolving around infantry combat on the ground and in midair through the use of jetpacks.
People often liken Tribes to Halo, but fans of the series are always more than happy to point out the fact the Tribes came about first. However, given the widespread exposure of Ascend, many are wondering whether the series can really hold its own against the Xbox-exclusive series which continues to go from strength to strength." 9/10
