Coming from it's roots in the first MMO FPS "Tribes" it has evolved into a game with multiple character types and action so fast it is hard to keep up with.
Not for the faint of heart but a community base all over the world that is more than willing to help the newbloods make their way up the ranks.
A true Free to Play game with many people in the higher ranks with all weapons unlocked and having never spent a cent. The added pay features are cosmetic and the purchase of new weapons doesn't really aid people in being better at this game.
All weapons can be tested in the practice area prior to upgrading so you can truly kit yourself out for major carnage.
Overall I have been blown away by this game and find myself playing it more and more everyday.
Give it a try.
