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: 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.
