    This game is great, if you don't actually want to play anything and just want to read an interesting story. The only "game play" is a mediocre turn based combat mode. Beyond that, you press A to change the story page, and that is all the "playing" you get. I love RPG games, but this was terrible. Don''t waste your money.

    Crimson Shroud is one for the hardened RPG players. The fighting system is good and the story is quite interesting, but sometimes hard to grasp. Add a great fighting system to it and you have a RPG you can enjoy for a long time.

    If you like classic RPGs and, most important, reading, Crimson Shroud will be your thing.

    A cult gem in the making. [March 2013, p.87]
