As in the older tribes, your character will take advantage of a jet pack.
We have just had the opportunity to play the single
player demo of Tribes: Vengeance for PC. We like what we see, but
we don't know how many people out there have the resources to play this
Tribes: Vengeance Crashes My Computer
First off, I have a Pentium 4b processor sporting
2.4 Ghz. The system features a gig of ram and a Radeon 9700 [128 MB] PRO
video card. I had believed this system to still be among the best of the
gaming systems. But, after trying the Tribes demo out, I am not
so sure anymore.
For one, my computer froze about three times and had the ultimate crash
[shutoff] twice while attempting to test out this game. This leads to frustrating
gaming!! After attempting an array of settings, and from the lack of technical
support for the game yet, I was left amiss on how to fix the crashing problem.
However, for the sake of the game, it does mention that you 'should' have
Directx 9.0c installed [comes with the DEMO], while I attempted to run the
game with only Directx 9.0b. Could have this little update made a world
of difference? I personally cannot say but expect that I may be receiving
emails from people who had no problems with the single player demo.
For those of you who are worried about the capability of your current systems,
the good people over at Sierra suggest that you have at least a 1 Ghz Pentium
with 256 MB ram and a wopping Gig of hard drive. They also mention how Directx
9.0c is suppose to be installed so maybe again that was my problem the whole
time, but, then again maybe not.
As said, the graphics inthis game look astounding
The Graphics 'Can' Be Smoking, or is that My Card Cookin?
The graphics on the game look like they can be amazing. Just by viewing
the two images we offer you should be able to tell that this game is very
performance intensive. Thanks to the new PCI Extreme cards coming out, almost
everyone should be able to afford a supreme AGP card within the next six
months [a card that will be required for you to make the most out of this
Tribes: Vengeance is set for release some time around the middle
