    Crimson Alliance can be perfectly described as "just another dungeon crawler" since it does nothing new and everything has been seen before. The level design is good and the graphics aren't bad but repetitive enemies make the gameplay a little annoying. I can't tell you to buy this game since Torchlight is a better example of how this is done and it has the same price.

    There are plenty of hidden secrets and scoring/upgrading incentives to replay levels, especially on Xbox Live with a few fellow dungeon crawlers. That combines with satisfying old-school hack & slash RPG action in a dark, dank and deeply buried dungeon realm that's visually appealing along with a not entirely original but certainly captivating story for a completely entertaining XBLA adventure.

    Is it worth 1200 MS Points? When you and your friends join up to discover the treasure and mystery that abounds in these lands, then it is a steal.

    It's initially compelling, but starts to feel shallow as combat becomes a grind, and a nagging wish for more of RPG elements creeps in. [Nov 2011, p.110]
