Crimson Skies

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.

Crimson skies - Test

Kri­nein
22 January 2002
  • Excerpt: Entre ses grosses productions sérieuses type Flight simulator , Microsoft a édité un jeu très fun et sans prise de tête du nom de crimson skies ! Vous êtes Nathan Zachary, un pilote émérite des années 30. Ce sont des années 30 imaginaires où le délabrement des routes était tel que les gens ne se déplaçaient plus que par avion. Les États-Unis sont donc divisés en factions, chacune possédant un zeppelin transportant son escadron d'avions.

  • Excerpt: L'histoire se déroule dans un passé alternatif : en 1937, une guerre civile ravage les Etats-Unis d'Amérique. La Grande Dépression, la prohibition et l'isolationnisme sont à l'origine de ce bouleversement. Les réseaux de transports classiques, par manque d'entretien, sont inutilisables. De...

  • Excerpt: FASA, som mange sikkert kender for rollespillet Shadowrun, er blevet opslugt af Microsoft, og udgav engang for mange år siden et brætspil ved navn Crimson Skies. Nu, en del år senere, er der så kommet et computerspil baseret på brætspillet, og hvem ellers end Microsoft skulle stå bag ? Hvis du går op i mystiske og lidt ukendte brætspil, har du sikkert stiftet bekendtskab med Crimson Skies, der mildest talt har skabt kultfølgeskab på internettet.

Crimson Skies

25 October 2000
  • Conclusion: Crimson Skies consegue fazer um feito difícil no mundo do entretenimento eletrônico: unir criatividade, aventura, imerssão e diversão em um só produto, cujos defeitos quase não aparecem devido à alta qualidade dos demais aspectos. Talvez, se ele tivesse sido acabado com um pouco mais de carinho, seria perfeito, mas mesmo assim não deixa de ser uma obrigação para qualquer jogador interessado em voar.
  • Pros: Um dos gráficos mais belos da aviação virtual;, Vozes, sons e músicas, em geral, soberbas;, Ambientes detalhados e texturas excelentes;, Divertido demais e muito prazeroso de se jogar;, Dificuldade gradual atrai jogadores casuais e não espanta os harcore;, Modo multiplayer gostoso de se jogar, aumentando a durabilidade;
  • Cons: O bug do Save Game pode ser caracterizado como um absurdo;, Algumas falhas de áudio, de programação e travadas frustram; Contemple algumas fotos abaixo:.

  • Conclusion: Crimson Skies вправе претендовать на лавры игры года в своем жанре, благодаря четкому расчету, гибкой структуре миссий, простому управлению и массе невероятных специальных эффектов. Если вы давно искали нечто развлекательно-потрясающее для вашего трехмерного ускорителя, то Crimson Skies будет отличным тестом и отрезком отлично проведенного времени.
