Sounds like another great XB Live title review is up at gamespot Here
Its out next week.
Yep read the review looks like it'll be ace fun, i'll be getting it on friday for sure.
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
Got mine pre ordered for friday. Its a game ive been waiting ages for.
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??)
Read the Review - its a totally new game set in the same time/era as the PC games.
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.
hey pre ordered off amazon £29.99 bargin
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.
Had a little blast today looks & plays very good
When i first put it on i hit everything & i do mean everything
Took me about 10mins to get a feel for the controls but once i did it was class.
Well looking forward to this on live & obi if your against me you wont be back for breakfast.
Yeah Yeah, Where's me boomstick
I doubt I will be against you anyway.
I'll spend most of my time killing myself by hitting everything.
Chocks away old bean
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!
Managed to get a copy last night. Awesome game, but trying it on XB Live tonight and I reckon I will still be on it tomorrow morning.
Went into my local gamestation last night to pick this up and they said it had been delayed!
But obviously not if you're all frickin' playing it!
talking out their arse beng so go kick it
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.
picked up my copy today on live tonight as well
got my copy today - see you guys online for a dog fight....
Dunno when Amazon will get mine to me. Captain I hate you when you send me invites to it.
See you up there soon I hope...
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.
not a bad game good for a laugh
just cant get enough of moto gp 2 at the moment, total addict
i dont like this game and its going back next week for r6 but most people do like it but if you do buy make sure its from game so you have 10 days grace
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?
Just got my copy!
Must go and try it!.............
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.
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
jay - you are Mr X Box guru!!
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.
Yes getting rid of mine for R6 at the end of the week - I Love Crimson but no one i know wants to play it so no point keeping it.
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.
