Pretty solid game for a great price.

Sou Saechao, Amazon

  • 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!

Not Earth Shattering, but Fun

  • 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.

Floods of insects...

  • 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.

Overlooked sequel to an underappreciated game

flaviolius, Amazon

  • 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 switch. Worries are unwarranted. Crimson Sea 2 is superior in all aspects to its predecessor.

Nice Surprise...

C.E., Amazon
1 June 2004
  • 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...giving the player an overwhelming sense of frenzied battle. This game is set in the future with an alien race known only as the Menace threatening to overtake all mankind.

Definitely worth checking out!

Stephen J. White "Dragnilar", Amazon
26 March 2004
  • 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 choose the order of, NPCs, two playable characters (remember Im comparing this to the first DMC cause DMC2 just didnt have it), a two player mode, set in a futuristic world where...
