Still hooked after two years of playing it

amazon.co.uk
17 June 2003
  • Summary: This is a marvelous game with a great atmosphere and storyline, easy-to-fly planes, and enough customisation to keep it interesting. My 5-year-old son loves it too, and is quite good at it. We bought this edition because our original CD wore out from too much wear-and-tear. Think of it as Indiana Jones in a airplane and you'll get the idea pretty well.

Crimson Skies - Xplosive Range - Explosive!!

amazon.co.uk
9 February 2003
  • Summary: To be honest, the main reason I bought this product was because of the price and it surprised me at how brilliant the game actually is when I first played it. it is set in the 1930's, during the deppresion of America, and gives a sense of realisation how hard living in those times actually was. The scenery is realistic, aswell as the sounds of the old aircraft. The flight systems are easy to to learn, though also are challenging at times giving a sense of realism.

  • Excerpt: "One of the most overlooked games of 2000... an arcade style flight sim where you fly planes that aren't real so Micosoft could spend more money on making the game than buying licenses for the use of real planes. Set in 1937 you are Nathan Zachary, the leader of a bunch of pirates who fly planes. The aim of the game is quite simple to shoot down enemy planes and complete the mission objectives, which could be anything from stealing a moving plane to ...
  • Pros: Play online against up to 8 people

pewillette, Dooyoo
31 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Crimson Skies est un jeu de simulation d'aviation de Microsoft, bien-sûr loin de Flight Simulator, sachant que Crimson Skies est un jeu de combat.
  • Pros: Très beaux graphismes, missions intéressantes, possibilité d'avoir ses propres avions
  • Cons: Ordinateur puissant à l'appel, des plantages plus qu'ailleurs :-(
