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!
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.
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: 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: 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.
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.
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.
