    Crimson Skies hooked me from the beginning and did not let go. Maybe I am a sucker for arcade flight sims. I mean, I was there day one when X-Wing released. I was there when Tie Fighter came out for my 486 machine. I pla... Read Full Review

    If you own an Xbox, you should own this game. Period.

    Equal parts swashbuckling pirating and dog fighting action, Crimson Skies is a unique action game from Microsoft that puts the joy of Grand Theft Auto on a prop engine airplane. Though the charm of the game will draw yo... Read Full Review

    Crimson Skies High Road Revenge is another example that shows why Xbox Live is so good.
