  1. The game is long enough for RPG buffs to get into, and the game provides enough action for those that aren’t really interested in RPGS.
  2. If can forgive a few bad camera angles, and a shoddy sniper mode, than you will derive great pleasure from this game.
  3. One of those Xbox games that couldn't be done on another console without comprimising quality.
  4. Beautiful and challenging... A twisting, turning plot tops off the meal and this Sea, simply, demands to be bathed in. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.82]
  5. Differs from "Dynasty Warriors" in that it simply kicks ass. [Feb 2003, p.103]
  6. The varied missions -- 40 or so of them -- are a visceral blast, and even the simple waste-them-all-and-send-God-the-cleaning-bill slaughter sessions are wonderfully cathartic. [Feb 2003, p.152]

    If you can stomach the poor writing and the annoying camera, Crimson Sea has some visually rewarding intermissions and some decent battle situations to keep the action game fan happy.

    This game is really cool. If you like Final Fantasy this is like it but pure action and its for X Box. The only downs are some of the camera angles.

    I think this game looks amazing. the only thing holding it back from a ten, is the camera angles and how short the game is.

    The camera is pretty bad, but you adjust and get used to it. The enemies are a bit repetitive, but the situations you're tossed into The camera is pretty bad, but you adjust and get used to it. The enemies are a bit repetitive, but the situations you're tossed into aren't. The graphics and production values are top notch. The main character is a bit of a girly man, but not as bad as Tidus or Raiden. Expand

    Repetitve gameplay, a bad camera, and mediocre graphics combine and make for an unexciting game. Although there are definately worse games out there.
