Crimson Skies

  • Conclusion: The Wrap-up: I think I can sum this one up in 1-2 words. Incredible game! I have never been a very avid flight-sim person because it always was a tad boring to me. This game has begun to change that opinion as I found myself spending quite a few nights practicing my flying and making the ladies swoon. In a nutshell, these guys made flight-sim flying fun for those normally not skilled at taking hold on the throttle and rudders.

  • Summary: Crimson Skies offers players the chance to pilot a variety of 1930's inspired aircraft through some wild missions. The simplified control scheme allows you to jump right into the action and focus on shooting down opposing planes. Successfully completing missions unlocks additional craft upgrades and new missions. You can also battle against other pilots in vicious dogfights using Xbox Live.

  • Excerpt: Though Crimson Skies has a few hiccups here and there, overall it is a refreshing new offering that combines the most fun aspects of action and flight sim titles. While it has a number of challenging missions, in total the game seems very well balanced and kept me coming back for more. The sheer variety of missions, the depth of selection and customization, and the focus on the engaging story makes for a wild ride chock full of blue-sky smiles.

Game Over Online
12 November 2000
  • Excerpt: I started off my last review with a one-line summary that captured the entire flavor of the game quickly for those with short attention spans. I liked that approach so much, I'm going to try it again. Hmmm. How about: Crimson Skies - A rousing, swashbuckler adventure and an enormous, bug-ridden pain in the ass! With lines like that one, I can't understand why game companies don't hire me to write their box text.

Crimson Skies review

Gameplanet
25 October 2000
  • Excerpt: Crimson Skies is a breath of fresh air in a genre which is flooded with stale "me too" titles. It is a fantastic action experience packed with dames in distress, daring stunts and rousing piratical adventures.
  • Pros: Excellent voice acting; intriguing game universe; engrossing single player campaign; plenty of multiplayer options; fun-filled flight engine.
  • Cons: Horrendous load times; slightly choppy performance, even on high-end systems.
