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.

Neoxxy, Ciao

DO NOT READ THIS OPINION - UNDER CONSTRUCTION

  • 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
  • Cons: Needs a good processor to run at speed

Fabuleux, vivement une suite

  • Excerpt: Il est enfin là ! Le jeux d'action aérien. Il palie à tous les inconvénient des autres jeux du même genre. A savoir pas de décollage et d'attérissage assardeux, une interface clair et modifiable (changement de photo de fond). De plus, l'ambiance qui y reigne est un vrai plaisir tant pour les oreilles que pour les yeux.
  • Pros: prise en main très rapide
  • Cons: nécessite un bon PC

Le jeu des anachronismes

Abeladina, Ciao
25 February 2010
  • Summary: Je me replace à la période de sortie de cet opus. Les graphismes, sans être à la pointe des configs de l'époque étaient vraiment très corrects, très flashy ce qui est en relation avec une bande-son qui est, elle aussi, très énergique. Les dialogues sont vivants Par rapport au titre, pourquoi ce terme d'anachronisme?
  • Pros: Graphismes, nervosité, ambiance décalée
  • Cons: je n'en vois guère
