    i got it for pc..found it good..but lost intrest pretty quick..the live version looks to arcadey..not my cup of tea..a good flight sim is only any good on the pc really..at least you can have more controls.. i`d have thought the xbox pad would have been harder to control?.. still let us know what you think if you buy it.. please :smashin:

    it is just a port of the pc version?

    i'd imagine it has better graphics as the pc game is nearly 4 years old, but is there anything else in there (extra missions, more planes etc??)

    Hi All,

    My copy of Crimson Skies arrived from Tronix today. First impressions are very good - the handling of the planes is really intuitive, with controls that are easy to master. Mind you, if you hit the roll stick too often you can get quite dizzy!

    The environments are very detailed and you can also fly really high. Usually you find there's a ceiling with flying games - I haven't found it yet.


    The weaponry on the planes is pretty impressive - who ever heard of a plane mounted shotgun! Enemy AI seems reasonably bright. I'd guess they get a bit sharper in later stages.

    I haven't tried online yet and I'm also looking forward to a bit of 4-player split screen. One disappointment is that you can only go online with 2 players on one box - not the four I'd hoped for.

    All in all it's looking really good.

    I think I'm going to give it a blast. It will hopefully bring a bit of life back into live for me.
    Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast. :smoke:

    I've now had my first Dogfight on Live - it was pretty intense with 10 people. I think when a few more locals get hold of a copy it could be a real laugh. Quite please with my first performance - got 17 kills and managed to take the world 35th ranked player down a few times.

    The game only came up as a two or three star network connection, but there was no lag of any sort.

    Here's to seeing you all on there!

    Got mine this morning from Game, only played the single player mode. Damn good game a hell of a lot of fun, with some superb graphics + sound. I'll be on tonight trying out the XB Live games, if you want some easy kills come and join me.

    Why dont you get it from Game then when the amazon one turns up just take the Game one back Or just cancell the one at amazon and get it from Game. You could be waiting a long time as there doesnt seem to be an end to these damn postal strikes.

    Thats exactly what I've done. Saturday I caved in thinking the Amazon one could take another few days, so off to Game I went. Do Game bother checking any type of retail code to make sure it was 'the' game they sold you, rather than one you got else where?

    mine arrived this am from amazon.

    not entirely sure wether or not to open it.

    have heard some good reports, but all the guys i play with regularly have had this over the weekend and were already back playing GRIT last night.

    If its going to be a 1 weekend wonder (like MM3) i might send it back and get top spin instead.

    Any views?

    I have both as you know & i do like crimson but i fear it will get old real fast.
    I already like playing top-spin much more than crimson, but i do like sports games better anyway.
    I'll keep mine cos i have it now but if i had to pick one or the other.
    Top-spin would win hands down :smashin:

    I have my Crimson, but I haven't had chance to play it yet.
    I do know that a few of the guys in the forums team are getting rid of it for R6 on Friday.

    Just had my 1st go and I think it will take a while to get into, but still I have managed to form the opinion that this is not my kind of game.
    It's definately going back.
