Crimson Alliance

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: There just aren't enough hack n' slash RPGs on the market these days. Sure, we have Torchlight and Dungeon Siege III , with Diablo III on the horizon, but there's room for more. Crimson Alliance hopes to scratch that itch a little bit, offering some traditional adventuring in a lighter, breezier...

Crimson Alliance review

GamesRadar
29 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Crimson Alliance draws in dungeon crawler fans with its Diablo-inspired cabalistic visuals and the promise of monster butchering coupled with arcane loot; what they’ll actually get is a reasonably competent hack-n-slasher that’s more akin to the classic Gauntlet arcade series.
  • Pros: Hacking and slashing monsters, Playing with friends, Arcade nostalgia
  • Cons: Vexing score multiplier, Deflated RPG mechanics, Awful voice acting

  • Conclusion: typical gamer should be able to complete the entire story of Crimson Alliance in about four hours, alone or with up to three others. But while Crimson Alliance lacks a long-lasting story mode, it has a very high replay quotient.

Crimson Alliance Review

  • Summary: " Crimson Alliance " is an odd one. A little bit too much like Gauntlet, it’s not a huge amount of fun to play by yourself. With some like-minded mates though, it becomes a far more palatable prospect, even if the game could do with a little bit more variety.

Review: Crimson Alliance (Xbox Live Arcade)

Diehard GameFAN
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Crimson Alliance has a very solid core with its responsive controls, four player co-op for both online and offline, and some satisfying hack and slash combat. Unfortunately, in their attempts to streamline the experience in order to appeal to a more mainstream crowd, Certain Affinity has managed to...

Crimson Alliance Review

VideoGamer.com
23 October 2011
  • Excerpt: If you've been able to get through the last 15 years of dungeon crawlers without being reminded of Gauntlet or its half-cousin Diablo, then I owe you a fiver. Decades after the fact, developers are still sorting out how to pull the magic out of a formula that was forged in the '80s, which is why to...

6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: With everyone focussed on October and November’s packed release calendar, Crimson Alliance is the perfect game to squeeze in before gaming gets busy again. It’s also a great title to return to when you’ve got fifteen minutes to kill, and kill you will.

Crimson Alliance

Defunct Games
28 September 2011
  • Summary: While there's nothing wrong with Crimson Alliance form a technical standpoint, it's a shame that a game with this much hack and slash action is so boring. The lackluster presentations, repetitive gameplay and generic story don't help anything.
