  • Summary: One of the first flight sim games I ever played, this game was for the time perfect, The graphics were great, the planes fantastic, the gameplay solid, the story though is what really helped this game. Set like a old radio action thriller or early action movie (think flinn) the campaign was enjoyable and I still play the game from time to time on my PC, so re playability is top notch.

Unnaturally fun

  • Summary: Who doesn't like dogfighting? Who doesn't like pirates? Who doesn't like the gilded age with its zeppelins and gangsters? This has all of those things! Despite its age, this game is still ridiculous amounts of fun. I recommend playing it with a joystick if possible, some of the missions are quite difficult to complete without one.

Best Game Since TIE Fighter

C. T. Mikesell, Amazon
27 April 2004
  • Summary: Crimson Skies is an incredibly fun game. The missions are varied and often quite challenging. I'm a pretty good dogfighter (note: no dogs are actually fought in playing this game), but the stunt and zeppelin missions sometimes took a frustratingly number of tries to get through. Still, I eventually acquired the necessary skills (and realized that some aircraft are better suited to some levels than others) and made it through all the missions.

SHORT AND SWEET!

"terranpatriot", Amazon
23 February 2004
  • Summary: This game is for anyone who enjoys flight sims, action games doing mission for money and engrossing story lines. The graphics in this game are some of the best I've seen. Don't let the title or box art fool you, this is an action, flight sim game. You play as an air pirate in an alternate reality North America in the year 1937. The skies are the roads of the world filled with cargo zeppelins, militia fighters and of course pirates.

Wow

Ian, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a quickie review, since I have a hard time writting the whole thing in paragraphs. The good: Outstanding graphics, everything is detailed very well Great premise Outstanding atmosphere, complete with great music Outstanding voice acting, some of the best I've ever heard. All of your npc companions come to life through the voice acting (You actually come to care for them, a rarity in games) Intense dogfights, its not umcommon for fights to involve upwards of 10-15...

Excelent Game

"tonspike", Amazon

  • Summary: You've seen all of those other combat flight sim games, and you've always wondered which to buy. Constantly searching the internet for a cool game. But now you can stop searching. You might've read the descriptions above, but don't worry, they are minor problems and will not affect the fun factor of the game. Just imagine yourself soaring in the rich, blue sky in the 1930's. Beautiful scenery, beautiful women, and awesome planes fill the sky.

An Imaginative Flight Sim

Takeshi Suzuki, Amazon
7 April 2002
  • Summary: There's Microsoft CFS, Janes WWII Fighters and various other flight sims. There is one similarity. They all are based off of real planes and happenings. But, this game, Crimsin skies, is totally different. This game is set in an alternate 1930's with different planes that are just mindboggling. Each one of the planes is unique, with it's own payload capacity, gun armament, agility and body.

Crimson Skies Is Great

J. Frey "med-pa", Amazon
10 December 2001
  • Summary: I'm running this on a Dell with P3 600mHz, 256 mb RAM, a 32mb Nvidia G-force video card, and Soundblaster Live soundcard. The game workd superbly. I have all the game settings maxed out and the game runs great: No lock-ups; detailed, smooth video; fast action; great sound. The graphics and detail is awesome. Takes some liberty with flight dynamics, but this is not a flight sim per se. An excellent game for those who enjoy arcade-style flight sim shoot-em-ups.

Great game

Takeshi Suzuki, Amazon
23 November 2001
  • Summary: When I got the demo for this game I said to myself that I had to get this game. When I got the game I was amazed at the number of levels that are in this game. I still haven't beaten it yet but there are tons of levels and tons of different airplanes you can fly. Another great feature of the game is the ability to customize your airplanes, its so much fun adding missiles to your plane and changing the paint job.
