    A PS2 exclusive sequel to a game that was an Xbox exclusive. Nice one. The game isn't bad though, but in order to play you should tape down the fire button before doing anything. Lots and lots of revisiting the same map shooting the same aliens can get wearisome really quickly, does have some light RPG elements, Japanese weirdness. Didn't like the camera, but the game includes a half-hour's worth of FMV from the first Crimson Sea which you can watch whenever you like (good). Expand

  1. An eminently playable actionfest in which you play what seems to be a descendant of Dante—a thousand or so years in the future.
  2. A sturdy title for those who know and love their third person kill-fests. Those seeking anything of a cerebral nature should go elsewhere and many may find the harsh difficulty and heavy repetition something of a turn off.
  3. If you love the gameplay in "Dynasty Warriors" but are tiring of its setting, Crimson Sea 2 offers a refreshing change of pace with a familiar style of gameplay.
