Crimson Sea – Review

GameCritics.com
12 March 2003
  • Excerpt: Sometimes a videogame can make itself less of a worthwhile experience by making its existence as a videogame too obvious. This may seem initially to be a contradiction in terms, but what about a movie that's constantly reminding the viewer that it's a movie?

  • Pros: Excellent Graphics, Great Music, Good gameplay
  • Cons: Awful Controls, Annoying Voice Work

Crimson Sea Review

  • Excerpt: Crimson Sea. Could be about anything, that. The most important thing though, surely, is that it has nothing to do with Blood Wake. In fact, this one's from Koei, masters of "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", and drags the developer's trademark thousand-unit battles into a sci-fi, anime-inspired...

  • Conclusion: Den flexibla grafikmotorn från de senaste Dynasty Warriorsspelen har åter dammats av i Koeis actionrökare Crimson Sea. Vad sägs om en skön story som närmast luktar film noir, hundratals attackerande fiender på skärmen samtidigt och inslag av strategiskt tänkande?

  • Excerpt: Sho nigdy nie miał łatwego życia. Często brakowało pieniędzy, zaś jego nastoletniej przyjaciółce Yangqin bardzo często z głodu burczało w brzuchu. Sho nic jednak na to nie mógł. Nie miał pracy, był facetem do wynajęcia.

  • Conclusion: Crimson Sea n’est pas ce qu’on pourrait appeler un jeu compliqué, on avance sans trop de soucis, le but étant clair : tuer. Il sera vite bouclé par un joueur moyen, mais propose un degré de rejouabilité assez intéressant, puisque après avoir accompli chaque niveau, on peut y retourner pour améliorer...
  • Pros: design "trop" original ?, répétitif
  • Cons: design original, cinématiques, rejouabilité

  • Excerpt: Après nous avoir plutôt habitué aux batailles épiques dans l'univers médiéval asiatique, c'est dans un contexte très différent que Koei nous invite une fois encore à une lutte sans merci.
