"It's been two years since the first release of
Sierra's Tribes. Coincidently, Loki Games introduced its first
port, Civilization: Call To Power, during that same period. Did
both companies have any idea that they would cross paths two years
later to assist each other in the development of yet another,
outstanding gaming port for Linux enthusiasts everywhere? This time
around, with what looks like a new "call to power" in Tribes
history, Dynamix (a subsidiary of Sierra) and Loki join forces in
what could be the multiplayer game of the year.
Before I even had a chance to pick up a version of Tribes 2 for
Linux, I had a pretty good idea that this release would not only
bring the awesome graphics and cool gameplay that I had witnessed
in the beta stage of Tribes 2, but it would do so, in Linux, with
minimal installation time and hassle. Would this be the Linux port
to finally disappoint me? Or was there something more sinister
lurking on the CD?"
