The video is a first impressions review of the Tumbril Storm and Storm AA vehicles in Star Citizen. The reviewer begins by expressing frustration with the poor acceleration and responsiveness of the vehicles. They speculate that these issues might be unintended or due to incomplete features. They also mention that the vehicles get stuck easily and have difficulty steering and turning simultaneously. The reviewer suggests that the current state of the vehicles might be due to general physics and vehicle development issues in the game.
They explain that the Storm AA variant has a lot of missiles and could be potentially useful in deterring fighters during missions like Jump Town. However, the reviewer emphasizes that their overall experience with the vehicles has been frustrating and highlights the limited viable gameplay loop, suggesting that taking the vehicles on outpost missions in areas with better weather might be the only enjoyable option currently.
The video then transitions into showcasing the visuals and features of the Tumbril vehicles. They point out the weapon racks and components inside the cockpit. The reviewer also explores the remote turret and its visibility and firing capabilities. They proceed to test the AA variant’s missile count and effectiveness by shooting at a ship with missiles and using the tractor beam to lift and destroy it.
Next, the reviewer attempts to use the Storm AA to shoot down bombs dropped by another player in a different vehicle. They discover that the missiles cannot lock onto the bombs and suspect that the bombs don’t emit enough heat or have a significant electromagnetic signature for the missiles to track them effectively.
In the final part of the video, the reviewer takes the Tumbril Storm on an outpost mission but encounters difficulties maneuvering the vehicle. They remark on the frustrating physics and difficulty of steering and moving forward simultaneously. The video ends with the reviewer expressing their frustration and stating that they have had enough.
