Summary: This is a great run around and shoot alien game! The aliens aren't anthropomorphic, too, so while it sounds violent, it is less so than many other games. It's like hosing down a bunch of giant bugs.
A space opera to be enjoyed by optimists with their youthful exuberance intact!

Summary: It's a shame when a game developer is onto a great premise but they kill it off before it can spawn additional sequels. Crimson Sea saw all of 2 iterations. That's what you get for being "original" Crimson sea. Naughty, naughty! Cheeky banter aside, Crimson sea 2 deserved to do much better than it did.
Summary: I got this game about a year ago in the cheap used PS2 bins at Game Stop. The cover was interesting so I decided to get it for the $2 or $3 it was. The story isn't that great at first, but it gets better as you play. Basically you are pretty much a hero. There are two characters you can choose to play as, but its pretty much up to you. I believe you can unlock more characters as you play. Multiplayer is fun!
Summary: Pretty cool game with solid frame-rate even when there's a lot of enemies around. Got some RPG elements to it, but the missions can be repetitive for some players. Voice acting is a bit awkward, but the shoot-fest makes up for it. When playing on a backward-compatible PS3, you may experience a freezing issue when trying to load up a game, but this happens once in a while. Just restart the game and it will be back to normal. Other than that, it's a pretty fun game!
Summary: The Menace resurge and threaten to overwhelm the galaxy when Sho comes back to blast them into oblivion with a little help. Not too much here, but the story does a fair job of holding together the game and the focus is gameplay instead of sitting back and watching narrative. You do get to snapshots of the previous game, and you get hints of things going on elsewhere in the galaxy, but the characters don't develop much and Feanay's crush seemed rather pointless to me.
Summary: Crimson Sea 2 for PS2, which is perhaps one of the most annoying games I've ever played. Beneath a load of pretentious storyline, there is an even bigger pile of redundant and frustrating gameplay. Regardless of the mission outline, what every one really entails is mowing down hordes upon hordes of enemies with either some type of gun, or a glaive-style weapon.
Summary: Crimson Sea 2 packs a lot of insects... but you also are packing the fire power to deal with said insects. Featuring tons of different levels to play on, different difficulty levels, and a couple different modes of play, CS2 gives the player a lot of action to mess with. And if that is not enough, it also has all of the cinimatic scenes from the original CS packed into it if you never played the first one (which is a strong chance since the first CS was on the X-Box.
Summary: I'm a very picky gamer; I finish very few games. I often dislike games that the mainstream press gives great reviews. However, this game instantly had me glued to the screen and hasn't let go yet. I'm about 16 hours into it and I'm ready for what looks to be another 14 hours of sheer greatness. The Graphics- are fantastic. Scores of aliens will be onscreen at a time, yet there is no slowdown, and all of your attacks look fantastic.
Summary: This is going to be a sleeper hit for the action-RPG people. The flow and feel of the game is a lot like a really great single player version of Phantasy Star Online, except the fighting is more like Ninja Gaiden/Devil May Cry. You also have a magic meter that builds up as you fight and take damage.
