подвесили ревью свежевышедших TRIBES 2
Лучшие места выглядят так:
I naturally expected my Pentium 3 500mhz/ GeForce2 Ultra combo to handle the game almost effortlessly, I was wrong.
То есть комп на PIII500+GF2Ultra при тамошних запросах слегка так подсасывает.
Putting all the texture sliders to full (as well as almost everything else I possible could).
Я тоже страсть как люблю все врубить на максимум. За что, блин, деньги плачены, если нельзя посмотреть во всей красе?
I started up a LAN game with about 10 bots, waiting through the almost unbearably long loading time (at least for my excitement). At last, I was dropped into the lush world of Riverdance (one of the many fantastic levels). I must admit, I felt my mouth drop when I saw the rolling hills and tall trees, the monstrous structures used as bases, and the flowing waters. But then I moved my mouse, and was met with something I really did not expect, terribly jerky frame rates. However, after downloading 2 quick patches that have already been released, things got somewhat better. The only way I could think of to fix my ordeal was to drop the texture detail. This worked, but at a large cost. All the textures that had once been so beautiful were now plain. They were largely bland and a bit worse than the original Tribes. However, it was not as bad as I thought. Other than the terrain textures being less detailed (which can be fixed), I really did not notice the changes (I was too busy blasting my spinfuser into the back of a Juggernaut Bioderm).
Тормозит, короче, со страшной силой. И даже два свежих патча дела не меняют. А когда все что можно отключишь, внешний вид — как у TRIBES. И даже чутка похуже.
Поздравляю всех наших любителей поплакать о дороговизне апгрейдов.
