Crimson Skies (PC): Yo Ho Ho and A Bottle Of Aviation Fuel!
3 April 2002
Summary: Microsoft’s games usually seem to come in for something of a battering from the associated gaming press for some reason, although I personally have always enjoyed the ones I have played. I tend not to buy that many games these days mainly because the damn things are so fricking expensive but there’s also that university thing which tends to eat into my time more than I would otherwise like.
Summary: Crimson Skies is a combination of Flight Sim, Indiana Jones and Gladiator (The Movie!). It is set in an alternate North America in 1937, when the lands are ruled by Air Pirates and Privateers (no dodgy election farces here I hear you say!), the hero is YOU or Nathan Zachary (Air Privateer extraordinaire) your aim is to Get the Bounty, treasure, fastest plane win the Girl and live to tell the tale.
Summary: This is a game which anyone can just pick up and play. All you need to do is look at the controls and launch the game. It's really as easy as that, pick up and play. You don't need a really top of the range computer, but a PIII 450mhz would be what i would recommend, a 16mb graphics card. This is a really good game, with stuning graphics, and it only costs £25. The variety of gameplay, with a stuning multiplayer, this is a really good game.
Pros: quick gameplay, good graphics, and easy to pick up and play.
Summary: Flight sims can be horrible things. Manuals the size of encyclopaedias are par for the course, as is utilizing every key on the keyboard at least once, and in many cases twice in conjunction with ALT and CTRL for some obscure function you'll never remotely understand, let along use. It can take literally hours before you can even think about starting to shoot stuff. Then there's the ultimate in freakishness. I'm talking about 'games' like Fly!
Excerpt: Ambientato in un 1937 alternativo, "Crimson Skies" ci mette nei panni di un pilota di caccia di nome Nathan Zachery. Dopo la crisi del '29, il mondo si è evoluto in modo particolare e i mezzi aerei si sono sviluppati tantissimo: ora interi settori commer ...
Excerpt: Crimson Skies se démarque de la concurrence des "vrais" jeux de simulation aérienne par le fait qu'il propose un pilotage plus orienté arcade. Il est ainsi beaucoup plus simple de faire atterir, de faire décoller, et de piloter l'avion.
