Long before Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 Arena were more than a twinkle in the milk man's eye, Dynamix released the popular teamplay focused first person shooter "Starsiege Tribes". Although the game proved a hit with the hardcore online gaming community, the total lack of any single player game left it with a somewhat limited audience. Now the company is putting the finishing touches to a sequel, and along with vastly improved graphics and new weapons and vehicles, "Tribes 2" also adds single player to the mixture. But just how much of it is there?

"You can probably play the single-player through to completion in a single sitting - [there's] not many missions there", producer Dave Georgeson admitted in an interview with MGON.

Of course, it lacks the reward of actually killing a person...sheesh, I'm sadistic."
