Tribes 2 was damned good, though I must say I really enjoyed the first a lot more in general.

Just googled it, seems like a basic online multiplayer game with jet packs. What makes this game special? Convince me! :P

#13 Posted by bellmont42 (325 posts) -

custom classes... the jetpack system requires skill :P lots of precise aiming since its so fast. vehicles! best CTF game.. requires teamwork

I actually found my old Tribes 2 disc only 3 days ago, along with a copy of Sonic and Knuckles and Tomb Raider 2 :)

I am SO in on this. Definitely up there with quake as far as one of the best multiplayer shooters of all time.

Tribes would be a great game for TNT, but why not have a GB community led event as well?

Yes, it's odd that the official sequel with more vehicles and better tech still wasn't as good as the first game with the mods that everyone made for it.  The saboteur with limpet mines and invisibility was so damn fun, as was the dual machine cannon on the soldier.  God damn was that game great.

 I'm going to see what i can do about getting a Tribes 2 server going. I doubt it can be permanent though.

Back in 1998 massive outdoor areas, tons of armor weapon and turret types and crazy vehicles with huge teams on each side was kind of a big deal.
