edit: i bought Tribes 2 before but my computer sucked so it didnt work.

T2 cost like $20. I play about every day. It's an ok game. I'd say about 300 people on at any given time.

But I only play in 2 different games, Houston's Vehicles and Combat PA 3.0 T2. Houston's Vehicles has some good pilots, and it's fun being a gunner for a good pilot. Combat PA 3.0 T2 has only 2 good things, the shields and stealth packs don't use up like normal T2 games. Other than those reasons, I wouldn't play.

I've played other FPS, and I like T2 just because it is different. But the main thing I cannot wait for on PS over most other games, is the teams. I hate playing games without voice comms.

*edit: In T2 you have an energy battery. You jump jets, some guns, and some packs use up this energy. It recharges on its' on kind-of fast. In un-modded T2, the shield and stealth packs use up this energy pretty fast, (~7-10 seconds), and if you try and use your jump jets, you energy battery is gone in like 3 seconds. But in Combat PA 3.0 T2, the stealth and shield packs only make your energy battery drain faster if you use your jump jets, and recharg slower.

Tribes 2 is worth picking up if for no other reason than the TAC2 (Team Aerial Combat 2) mod. Sure it's a client side mod at about 80megs, but it's stinking sweet! You'll see about 20 players online after 8pm pacific on the TAC2 server that NextGenConsoler hosts.

Tribes 2 is still a great game. I haven't seen an intentional TKer in about 3months. 3 MONTHS! Can anyone say that for newer games?

Just as in the case of Planetside, it's all about the gameplay, not the graphics.

I anticipate PS wont be quite as fast paced as T2. Which by the way is a semi-great game now after something like, seven grueling patches. But comes with a high learning curve. I run a T2 tribe competing on the TWL. After over two years competition, has never been better than right now. Even after PS comes out i will still compete. As it is now i don't pub very often and when i do i usually try to play somewhere i have an overflow pass to.

So if you want a cheap thrill at a hundred miles a minute, enjoy a challenging learning curve, and don't mind getting owned 'til you learn a few tricks. Then by all means go for it, T2 is a good purchase. There's alot of Mods, third party scripts, skins, effects of all kinds. Giving it additional longevity.

But bear in mind, PS will likey have a challenging learning curve aswell. Maybe not as steep as T2. Maybe steeper who knows. Do you wanna send the time to learn? Are you gonna have the time to learn? Spending time learning T2 while trying to learn PS... takes time away from learning PS. GL

Getting Tribes 2 at this point is a waste.

The game over-all sucks in the first place, and I've never really enjoyed it.

If you have a high end computer, may I suggest Battlefield 1942.

Its a great game and its not completely like PlanetSide, so you can still play it when PS comes out.

Best of luck, cheers,

T2 is well worth the $10 I spent on it a few months back.

IIRC one of the chats said that the aircraft would pilot the same in PS as in Tribes (like a boat?) so it might be worth buying just for a trainer.

If you can get it cheap today, pick it up. Just gauge how much you're spending vs how long it is until PS comes out.

i probably wont buy Tribes2. i wont have any money until april, anyways, so ill save my cash and use it on the monthly fee. i guess its back to BF:1942, CS, and multiplayer demos until PS is released.
