Crimson Skies : High Road to Revenge

Crimson Skies : High Road to Revenge
This aerial combat game involves an alternate universe - it's sort of like the 1930s, but with a twist. You get a lot of planes, fighting and nice graphics. Usually when we play games to review, we play them through and then are done. This is one of the few games that we loved so much that we replayed it many times.

It's sort of a swashbuckling adventure, like Indiana Jones, and the storyline really brings you along through the game. I love flying games, so it was great to have such responsive airplanes and such amazing graphics around you. When you're spinning in loops over a rippling ocean, with a gorgeous sunset overhead, it's hard to imagine anything much better.

I love the 3D strategy involved in handling attacks. I love the flying-through-canyon precise reaction flying involved. This isn't a "flight sim". You don't have to worry about flaps, landing gear, or anything else. Your ammo in your machine guns is unlimited. You just spin, fly, and shoot.

The sound is reasonably good - an action-adventure hyped theme playing that you can turn down if it's not your style. The Dames and Tough Guys all sound in style.

There are plenty of missions here to keep you entertained, and you can replay them at different difficulty levels to keep yourself challenged. Also, if you have XBox Live, you can in essence play infinitely against online players with a variety of really fun games.

Highly recommended!
