Unreal is the real champion of Sci-fi shooters in f** space. This game even uses its Engine.
Still looks like a great game, considering unreal tournament 3 sucked it may be a good replacement.

Halo does not copy this game, Halo copy's a couple of games like Doom and a few others but the game that Halo copy's most is Marathon a game of the same developer Bungie.

Lets get some things straight:

Tribes 1 came out in mid 90s with a sequel released before the 2000s. The Starsiege series also saw a number of game based on the universe, such a really popular mech combat game.

Halo 1 was released in 2001 and saw mass media attention a few months after its release. As opposition to this, Advent Rising was supposed to improve on the new FPS model before Halo 2 was released. Advent Rising, though well reviewed NEVER got the attention that the Halo series, and by proxy the Bungie studios did. Bungie had the background of great FPS games such as Marathon and Oni.

HiRez has taken it on themselves to reinvigorate the dead Tribes series with Tribes Ascend and Tribes Universe. Tribes, in and of itself, has always been a superior formula for multiplayer FPS marches. Many players that claim Halo is the pinnacle of arcade FPS action has never played Tribes 2. With its return, Tribes will once again reign as FPS king. Probably not amongst the consumer-illiterate who cannot look past marketing plots, but amongst those who view games as they should be. Even then, through word of mouth and the inevitable media attention, Tribes will secure its place once more. Any tl:dr statements are made by Halo and Call of Duty players :) This has been your history and foresight lesson by a gaming enthusiast (addict).

Tribes is not a Halo clone and the Halo is not a tribes clone too.
and Nox, Halo is in the same level from the first time to those games, and its not just luck why Halo has better marketing !

I love it how people call Tribes a Halo clone. It proves that they don't know anything about what they are talking about at all.

Halo was a clone of Tribes and Advent Rising, it just had a better marketing so people think it was the first. In fact not until Reach has Halo come to the same game level Tribes always held.
