    If you like fps's at all you should at least try this game.

    Tribes is a projectile focused fps game (very little hitscan) focused around a "skiing" mechanic, which lets you disable friction.

    Combine this with a jetpack and many hills, and you can get to very high speeds.

    The game is Free to Play, with additional unlocks being available for either exp in game or cash shop gold. They are sidegrades though, a good player in default loadouts will fare well against people with unlocks.

    It's kind of hard to explain it well, so here's a gameplay trailer:

    And a random video showcasing the movement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60okpuwyeNY

    I played it a couple times with my brother, and though it had an appeal, I couldn't see myself playing it for more than the first novelty. It didn't really have any depth beyond it :/

    But the F2P element is pretty cool.
