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.
Summary: A while back I gave Crimson Skies 1 star for a simple reason, it was a monster on my system, it took ages to load levels and drop screens became a hard drive grinding trap, I swear it even took nearly 4 minutes just to change options or simply exit the game so why my change of tone?
Your machine WILL crash, but you will still want to play it

Summary: I read all the bad reviews, But after downloading the demo I was hooked. I thought, maybe the full version won't crash my system every other time I play it. wrong, it did. I had the same problems everyone els did, it would just freeze and I would have to restart, basicaly, a major pain in the a**.
Summary: This game has caught my attention for a while. it is well paced and has stunning graphics if your system can run them smoothly. The only downside I've seen is that you can't choose your own mission, the game does it for you and it's always the same sequence of events.
Summary: This is one awesome game ! Beautiful graphics, very nice cloud and haze effects. Unlike FS98 or FS2000, you don't need to master your piloting skills. Very playable. But, I have a PIII 800MHz, GeForce 32M card... Slow load times, once it loads, no slowing down.
Summary: and 4.5 isn't an option. I'll get to that in a bit, but about the good. Atmosphere: Amazing. While playing, you will become immersed in the world created here. The voice acting is terrific, the in flight chatter is informative (though can be repetetive at times). It's downright fun.
Hard on system resources, but still a blast to play

Summary: Once I got this installed and started a mission I thought the game had crashed. For some reason, this game has pathetically LONG load times. It seems to freeze your system, but its just going through its routine.
Summary: Flight sims? Fun? Action oriented? Campy? Wait a minute, you said "fun"!? Talk about being on target, Zipper Interactive has really nailed the fun quotient with Crimson Skies. Forget your preconceptions about flight sims being boring and tedious, overwhelming you with controls, air intake valves and...
