As a huge fan of the Sierra's original Tribes release, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Tribes Vengeance (http://www.sierra.com/product.do?gamePlatformId=412) -- especially after playing the beta release and MP demo.

Got the game yesterday, and it's a lot of fun. However, I was exploring one of the maps and noticed this:

:o

Forget the enemies and objectives on the map... it appears there are more imminent concerns. :lol:

Wow, those graphics are awesome! What sort of platform are you playing on?

My Frankenstein rig consists of an Athlon 2200XP+, 1 gig Corsair XMS DDR 333, Radeon 9800 Pro, SB Audigy 2ZS Platinum.

IIRC, T-V uses the same engine as UT2K4, but with added eye candy. Certainly a pretty FPS, bad astronomy notwithstanding.

And that is actually one of the worse levels. The inside cave levels are even better looking in my opinion.

Yes indeedy. Cavern + grappler = hotness.

I seem to get stuck playing on the same levels, so I haven't yet noticed anything like that.

But Cavern from the demo was very nice. I didn't think they could pull that off with a game like Tribes.
