Summary: This is such a great game! the game is really addicting and so much fun. This is a must if u still have your old xbox. I love this game so much! it's fun to take down the enemies from the air and chasing them down. The graphic are really great for a game that's like 10 years old or so. It's great for between hardcore and casual gamers.
Summary: I don't know why this is called a simulator, because it's more Arcade than Blazing Angels. This game is compatible with Xbox 360, but the graphics can sometimes be messed up, and there are frequent glitches. The game has a very good storyline, but bad game mechanics of you doing things for people and receiving money for it. If you're a freak about flaps corresponding to aircraft movements, you might cringe at the rudders.
Summary: Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge is such a great XBOX original. I don't know about backwards compatibility with the 360, but if you have an original box, this is a must have. The controls are very easy to understand and get used to quickly, with very little, if any, fault. The graphics for a game almost 10 years old are amazing. The story is very well written, with serious plot points, and comedic ones. The only downside to this game is availability.

Conclusion: Crimson Skies is awesome. I have never liked flying games, but this game is killer. The environments are GIGANTIC! You can basically fly anywhere you want. Battle scenes are pretty nuts, including one early in the game with this Zepulin you destroy. Another cool thing is the alt-universe storyline. I'm a real sucker for "Neo-WWII" stuff, and this game was perfect for that, right down to the pin-up models on the sides of the planes.
