Starsiege: TribesType: Action
ESRB Rating: Teen
Release Date: 11/30/1998
Developer: Dynamix
Publisher: Sierra On-Line

Starsiege: Tribes brings out a lot of features that the standard versions of other multiplayer games lack. In Tribes, players have the capability of playing standard deathmatch, capture the flag, last tribe standing, defend & destroy towers, as well as other options.

What makes Tribes unique from other standard first-person shooting games is the wide open arena where users play both inside and outside, jet packs enabling players to hover for short periods of time, flying vehicles, top down commander screen allowing individuals to have an overall map of the playing field and set locations for attack, defend, repair.

Players should pay Tribes over a Network or the Internet to get the real feel for the game and its action. Overall, Tribes is a great game for any individual who enjoys first-person shooters or squad warfare games
