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.

Conclusion: <b>FANTASTIC!</b> Need I say more except get off your ass and buy it? From the moment i stuck the disc in my console i knew i would be impressed. I've never been heavily into flying style games but this arcade style dogfighter sucked me in straight away. I'm not going to sit here and give you a run through of my every thought and feeling of each mission like most other reviewers do. Instead, I will tell you the real things you need to know.

Conclusion: This is a great live game, Dont get me wrong from my last revew I didnt rank all the stats correctly But this is a great game on live and there are always people playing online. I just cant belive it hasent sold more copies!Yes, this is the real deal. Buy it, Play it, you will be blown away by how Good this noname game is... its up there with Halo and Splinter Cell statisticly I just cant see why this game hasnt taken off and sold millions more than it should have.
Summary: For an image of the future of air craft technology after World War 1 but with out World War 2 happening. Being able to fly these super little responsive craft. Super little game. Well worth paying more for this little funster.
Summary: First of all, this is a brilliant game and a much needed flying game for the xbox. theres nothing really to compare this too? its just a really refreshing and original game, you play a pirate of sorts, not a nasty one but you have freedom to choose missions at your own pace, or you could just rob people...
Summary: This xbox game is absolutoly brilliant! You control a pilot called Nathan Zachary, in his cool fighter aeroplanes. The aim of the game is to complete the levels by helping your comrades by doing what they need you to do. Or, you just do as it tells you to do at the beggining of the level.Plus, you get to control turrets on certain points on a few levels.I rekon this beats heroes of the pacific by a mile!EXCELENT!
Summary: Not owning an Xbox myself, I am on the verge of buying one after playing this game at a friends house. Playing against a couple of mates is great, but playing ALONG SIDE your mates against another bunch of folk on Xbox Live is absolutely majestic fun. Playing this game on a large wide-screen TV or using a projector redefines the Crimson Skies experience, and the graphics are more than up to challenge.
Summary: I really enjoyed the 1 player experience but once you are in live this is just incredible. Dogfighting a load of others is so much fun and the fact you can take a friend on-line from your x-box as a guest makes it even better. The screen is split but it does not take that much away from the experience. A hint : once online get ALL of the free downloads to ensure you have no compatibility problems. They are free and take about 15 minutes to do.
