    Does anyone remember Tribes? That was one of the first FPS games I got into on the PC, and it always looked really good on your computer because the game was mostly outdoors.

    I think it would be possible to have a good port of that using Xplane style outdoor graphics (or even SciFly) and then all you'd have to do is model a 3D graphic of a guy (for 3rd person) or just keep it FPS and render a gun or what have you..

    And you could have a small single-player game, but if you could have Capture the flag over LAN or Internet, then this game would have tons of replay value...

    Just a thought! :p

    Based on my experience with Cube, I'm not convinced that the iPhone / iPod Touch can handle a FPS without an external control mechanism. Once they get the controls down for the FPSs, I would be ALL OVER a remake of Tribes (better yet Tribes 2) for my beloved machine. Best $400 I think I've ever spent.
