The skiing doesn't feel like skiing it's more like sliding on a slippery surface activated with your spacebar (as in total lack of control, especially side to side) Did these guys even "try" to emulate the Tribes 1 feel, no! They went out and tried to do something "different", well guess what guys - you can't improve on perfection and Tribes 1 was it.
I played T1 a little and T2 a lot, and I really wish the hardcore T1 whingers would disappear in a black hole. They have a T1 obsession because it was their first Tribes experience, not because it was "perfection". They sound just like the monomaniacs who hated Quake 2 because it didn't play like QuakeWorld.
I've been looking forward to Tribes Vengeance more than I have to any other FPS in years, and I hope it plays nothing like T1 just to spite the T1 fascists.
