A wonderful setting, really cool planes, and more fun than you can shake a stick at.
For it's time it had pretty good graphics. Definitely not a simulation. It had hints of realism but Crimson Skies is primarily a plain old arcade shoot em up fun. A combination of good old fashioned dog fights and stunt piloting. All in all great fun, except for one level where I had to fly through a gateway but crashed over and over again. But hey that's the only one minor minus in a hugely fun and addictive game!
