I would have been interested in getting to like this game (even if it's only Tribes in name) if it worked in 3d. As it stands I'm quickly losing interest in supporting developers who desperately cling on to last millenia's tech and try to force it onto everyone.

3D is a vain attempt that the entertainment industry to raise the level of immersion in their products without really doing anything or thinking to hard and charge you more money. It is gimmickry that has existed for the past 60 years and in my opinion Avatar has been the only product that can validate its existence. Even though the plot was wholly predictable and uninspiring, the visuals made up for it.

You give me virtual reality and we'll talk. Till then, keep your funny glasses.
