I installed it, it isn't too bad.

Need to play it some more to get the hang of it. It is console playble, so it has target assist ect.

OMG. I went to the site and watched the trailer movie, and it DOES look a lot like tribes. Blended with Crysis and Starship Troopers or something.

I think I want it now. Give 'em good feedback, Gryph, and make it a winner.

It is pretty fun actually. The jet pack is pretty good, it is a lot like Tribes.

I do like it a lot. Can't figure out how to do third person view though. If it doesn't have third person, that would be my only complaint so far.

I don't think it does 3rd person view. Keep in mind it is optimized for PC and console so it is is limited to console controls, they usually don't put in those extras.

you know, if consoles could just get a damn keyboard and mouse and stop ******* around, they would be fun.

I don't mind consoles, and console style gaming. I just wish if they were going to publish games for the PC they'd take advantage of PC capabilities rather than just doing a minimal port. If I wanted to use a controller at my PC I'd be using a console and sitting on the couch.
