    First off, let me say that I LOVE this game. This is one of those games that toally suck you into the world in which they create and make you feel like your really amongst it. You are an air pirate in the barnstorming er... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Crimson Skies

  • Review Score:8.5

    A wonderful setting, really cool planes, and more fun than you can shake a stick at.

    The Crimson Skies universe is just plain cool. A huge dash of swashbucking and derring do but instead of boarding pirate ships you are shooting down crazy planes and blimps. Set in an alternate universe 1937, the story ... Read Full Review

    Fly the unfriendly skies. Or don't.

    What a great concept for a game. Set in an alternate 1930's world where pirates rule the skies in suped up aircraft, the narrative is unspooled through a newsreel look where the picture is scratched up and the soundtrac... Read Full Review

    Is it a bird? Is it a Plane? Well...yeah it is

    This game has a lot to offer people who like to play with old Planes. For myself though I found it a little more frustrating to fly around in an old fighter plane. The game is centered around Zachary and his band of P... Read Full Review

    Great dog fight game. A little dated now, but fun. It's too bad that there are no expansion packs or missions for the PC

    I had a lot of fun with Crimson Skies. The price is right now... You have to find it on EBay or with a game pack... It's a blast! Some missions are pretty straight forward and easy, while some of them are pretty difficul... Read Full Review

    Not the perfect game; but, very entertaining.

    Too many games attempt to be the PERFECT game. Very few succeed because only the packaging (graphics) really seem to change. My favorite games are still the ones in the vein of Privateer. Crimson skies is no match ... Read Full Review

    Old game but a good game...

    This is one of my favourite games. I only play on-line, it's to easy now on single play when you have been trained by many clans. While playing this game you will make friends quickly, the people on Crimson SKies (Cs) ar... Read Full Review

    An awesome dogfight that never lets up.

    If you want a realistic flight sim, you'll be dissapointed. If you want a combat flight sim, you'll be dissapointed. This is a CIRCUS DOGFIGHT, pure and simple. The action just keeps on going. There is nothing like shoot... Read Full Review

    Not your average flight sim...

    When people think about computer plane games they think, flight sim, when people think flight sim they think, extreme learning curve, difficult levels, lots of invested time. When trying to find an easier game to approac... Read Full Review
