Summary: Crimson Skies is lots of fun. Especially if you like having multiplayer deathmatches with three of your friends, and when they aren't around to shoot down, you can always switch over to xbox live or single-player campaign mode. The levels all give you plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, discover hidden treasures, and play challenging mini-games with varying degrees of difficulty.
Summary: OK, this isn't no Halo but I enjoyed it very much. I am a progessional pilot and I generally avoid game console flight games due to lack of realism. I was pleasantly surprised by how fun this game was. Kind of a FPS of the sky. Good plot and story line. Only real con I have is it is a farily short game as XBOX games go. Probably 10-15 hours playtime. For the money, I highly recommend it.
Summary: This game is one of the few flying games with great controls. This game is really one of a kind, as there are hardly any games on the market similar to this one. Both the multiplayer and singleplayer are fun. There is a nice selection of planes, each with different special attacks. The controls are fluent and easy to use.
Summary: Now dirt cheap, this early Xbox game is a real gem. It is a fast-paced, fun and exciting airplane shooter with a a dash of RPG (upgradeable planes and non-linear missions) and an entertaining old school sci-fi swashbuckler feel. Graphics hold up for current gen and gameplay is easy to pick up and solid. Although dogfighting can get repedative, there is alot of variation in enemies and locales as well as stationary cannon shooting to add some flare.
Summary: Xbox owners, allow me to introduce you to the game that will make you forget all about MechAssault. Mech-what? MechAssault. You know, the first-party game that kicked Xbox Live multiplayer onto your radar. Yeah, that one. Well, now you have Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, the next Microsoft title that will turn your console online and your smack-talking into high gear.
Summary: I thought this was going to be a disaster like Mechassault, but this game is actually MORE fun then the PC version. There are a lot more things to do, environments are a lot better looking and the turret shooting is a nice addition.
Summary: I thought this was a good game overall but the gameplay did become repetitve in the story mode. The multiplayer is pretty good. Halo 2 is still the better game for Xbox Live. Good Xbox Live game but not great.
Summary: So much fun on this one. I love how the xbox controller shakes in your hand with each different type of weapon you fire, especially the large, double-barreled machine gun. The graphics are amazing as you can see your ammo trail off into the distance. There's a "Sky Captain" quality to the Chicago landscapes. I wish the people who bail out of their planes could be blasted into hamburger with the machine guns, but it's all for naught - they're impervious.
