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.
Summary: When Koei switched systems for the sequel to its Xbox-exclusive action-RPG Crimson Sea, many people were surprised. The company probably felt that the PS2's larger user base would give Crimson Sea 2 more exposure, but gamers were concerned that the game might change too much during the system...
Summary: I am surprised that this game hasnt gotten much coverage. It really is fun and challenging at the same time. Crimson Sea 2 comes to us from the makers of the Dynasty Warriors series and the new one, Samurai Warriors. Koei is known for having hundreds of enemies on screen at one time..
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.
Summary: I played the first one. Imagine Devil May Cry (cause you can buy multiple guns and swords and use them at any time) in third person view (meaning you can actually control the camera) with more story and cutscenes, more monsters, bigger environments, even less puzzles, more missions that you can...
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.
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.
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!
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.
