"There's no doubt about it; Tribes 2 was hyped. Hyped more than any other games I can remember; it was one of those legendary sequels like Team Fortress 2 or Duke Nukem Forever. Tribes 2 -- unlike the others -- is not only ready for release, but its ready for a Linux release."

"I remember signing a petition in July of 1999 with a desperate hope that Tribes 2 would be ported to Linux, and so did a few thousand others. Whether it had anything to do with a petition or not, a year and a half later, we're creeping towards a Linux release of Tribes 2. Loki is doing a simultaneous port, in hopes of a common release date."

"Tribes 2 is a big deal for Linux gaming, right up there with the Quake series. It takes us a step above and beyond the slew of first person shooters for Linux and provides something original. Its uniqueness will appeal to a different crowd, broadening the Linux gaming community."
