Summary: One of my all time favorites. Still as the title says looking to play it on Win7 with ATI cards. Have hope I just found a web site that still plays it to this day ([...]) and there is a fix on the way.....one of the best out there, People got away from it because of all the jerks that use to show up on line and make it a bummer for true fans....kinda like today huh? ***UPDATE*** there are fixes out there for newer cards!
Summary: One of my all time favorite PC games. Not fully compatible with modern video subsystems (e.g., drivers, video hardware, etc.) or WinXP. I got it to work intermittently, but the text always displayed as rainbow colored noise. Would frequently crash to desktop, especially during cut-scenes.
Summary: I have to start by saying that this game has some very nice graphics and is highly enjoyable to play, however is has some major flaws. The single player campaign is sort of short, only 24 missions, and it will leave wanting much more. The big problem is multiplayer. Despite the fact that MS made this game and runs The Zone, attempting to play multiplayer via The Zone will leave you very angry.
Summary: Everyone is mentioning it, but no one seems to be bothered by it. The lack of physics while flying is VERY noticeable. Fly sideways, you should pull to that side and fall. Not here. While this makes it more "Fantasy like", if you're used to true flight sims, it'll take you a while to get used to flying here. I was disappointed by this more than anyone else though, it seems.
Summary: I've been waiting for this game for what seems like years and I can't help but register some disappointment now that I finally have a copy. The concept is outstandingly original and fascinating, if superficially reminiscent of the old DOS game Air Power. The in-game graphics are great and the flight physics are a pleasant mix of sim-like and arcade. The box-art, in-game movies, voice acting, zeppelins, background story, and outlandish aircraft designs are juicy.
Excerpt: Crimson skies non è certamente un buon simulatore di volo bellico, e non vuole esserlo: le regolazioni del velivolo sono minime (solo armi e velocità) e anche il realismo non è questo granchè (si passa con discreta facilità sotto piccoli capannoni: fate un po' voi). Microsoft questa volta ha puntato principalmente sul divertimento: le partite sono un frenetico susseguirsi di obbiettivi e un continuo scambio di battute fra piloti. Non molto azzeccata ...
