Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 2

Product Description

Still reeling from a massive surprise attack, IAG Commander, Live-D organizes the remaining forces along with a rag-tag team of mercenaries and survivors.

From the Manufacturer

Millions of light years away, in the galaxy of Theophilus, a mysterious evil threatened mankind. In a instant, the unknown life form known as Menace invaded, driving Theophilus to the brink of destruction. Its ranks decimated, the IAG, the agency charged with maintaining order, was only sporadically able to battle against the onslaught.

The IAG's only remaining hope to protect the galaxy was the warrior Sho. But even with Sho's help, there was no break in the fight against the Menace. In light of the devastation, Sho searches for more help.

Then, one day during the seemingly hopeless war... Sho meets another Vipa who possesses a power that can stop the Menace. Her name was Feanay. What is the secret that Feanay is concealing? And what do the Menace want? Will Sho be able to exterminate the Menace and return Theophilus to peace?

Control space and time in a world filled with danger. Exterminate an enemy that swarms in and surrounds you. Crimson Sea 2 pushes you to the limits of tension and excitement, as one crisis situation after another unfold before you.

You accept your mission from the voluptuous Live-D, Commander at IAG Headquarters, and then head out to the far reaches of the galaxy to fulfill it. From simply exterminating hordes of enemies, to rescuing dignitaries, to completing objectives within time limits, the action progresses as you exterminate the Menace and accomplish your objectives.

Use guns and blades to shoot and slash your way through the swarming enemy. By themselves, your weapons are capable of massive shows of force. When you use the gun and blade together, or link attacks to perform an Overdrive attack, the weapons become capable of even deadlier force.

As the battle heats up, you can perform a Time Extend move. During Time Extend, everything in your environment, including the Menace, moves in slow motion. You, however, continue to move in the normal space-time continuum. While executing a Time Extend attack, you are able to hack your way through hordes of enemy Menace and inflict massive damage.

Then, there's the Neo Psionics attack, your deadliest weapon. By summoning up strength from within, you become capable of attacks of unparalleled force.

The action unfolds on 4 different planets in the Theophilus star system: Grarve, Agitato, Semplice, and the Crimson Planet. Each one has a unique environment, and different Menace lie in wait for you around every corner.

With non-linear game play and over 60 different missions, choose from among multiple missions created for each stage. Penetrate an enemy stronghold to gather intelligence, rescue a marooned political leader, or trip the switch on a machine and escape before it self-destructs.

In more difficult missions that you don't initially clear, you can explore the mission terrain and strengthen your character and weapons. Then, try again until you are able to clear the mission.

There are two playable characters in Crimson Sea 2: Sho and Feanay. Once you have satisfied certain game conditions, you can switch between characters in every mission. Sho and Feanay have their unique strengths; discover them in your quest to destroy the Menace.

In addition to the main single player game, Crimson Sea 2 now includes 3 two-player modes. Players can work together to bring down an enemy and clear a stage in "Co-op" mode, battle head-to-head "death match" style in "Versus" mode, or try to outscore their human opponent in "Competition" mode.

The blast of your weapon, the hum of distant machines, and the creeping footsteps of the Menace... Crimson Sea 2 takes full advantage of the sound processing capabilities of the PlayStation 2. Dolby Pro Logic II sound heightens the tension and fear and completes the total experience of Crimson Sea 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked sequel to an underappreciated game August 16, 2004
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When Koei switched systems for the sequel to its Xbox-exclusive action-RPG Crimson Sea, many people were surprised. The company probably felt that the PS2's larger user base would give Crimson Sea 2 more exposure, but gamers were concerned that the game might change too much during the system switch.

Worries are unwarranted. Crimson Sea 2 is superior in all aspects to its predecessor. Unfortunately, despite these improvements, Koei's futuristic hack-and-slasher seems to have gotten LESS attention on Sony's machine than on Microsoft's.

Gamers who missed out on the Xbox original need not worry. There are no major plotlines that carry over to the sequel. However, if you are interested in learning about main character Sho's heroics during the Ekdahl Wars, you can find out all about it via in-game conversations. The original cinemas are included for your viewing pleasure.

Either way, the story of Crimson Sea is anime-level bizarre. Sho is a Vipa, a superhuman soldier who uses Neo-Psionics to destroy an invading alien Menace that's turning peaceful people into monsters by inserting plugs into them. Your job is to kill em all. There are twists and mysteries along the way that will keep your attention, but the story is secondary.

Much like the original, Crimson Sea 2 is all about combat. You'll progress through sixty-odd missions, most of which are populated with swarms of icky creatures just begging to be destroyed. Luckily, Sho is more than equipped for the task. He has upgradeable guns and melee weapons, and puts them to fantastic use. New for the sequel are gravity blade, overdrive attacks, and Time Extends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Surprise... June 1, 2004
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2
I am surprised that this game hasnt gotten much coverage. It really is fun and challenging at the same time. Crimson Sea 2 comes to us from the makers of the Dynasty Warriors series and the new one, Samurai Warriors. Koei is known for having hundreds of enemies on screen at one time...giving the player an overwhelming sense of frenzied battle.
This game is set in the future with an alien race known only as the Menace threatening to overtake all mankind. All efforts to halt their advance have failed, and so one man, Sho is called in to save the day.
Sho progresses through the game being given various missions that he must accomplish. These missions range from simple seek and destroy, escort and even some retrieval missions thrown in.
Along the way, he can upgrade the power, range, and fire rate of his two guns...upgrade the gravity blade (sword) attacks and even upgrade his NeoPsionics (magic) abilities to become a one man army in all sense of the word.
The missions are short and not super-challenging at first. The player is given ample time to learn the controls with the addition of the training mode. Sho can target, strafe, slash, jump and teleport to amazing effectivness and ease of control. The button layout makes sense and feels effortless in its execution.
The only thing that is missing is the ability to guard against enemy attacks. While a seemingly petty thing to gripe about, in missions where you are graded on the amount of damage you have taken, it would make sense to have this feature included.
Other than that, this game is really fun. It is fast paced, woven into a awesome storyline and features many unlockables. All in all, its a good way to spend some time saving the universe from your living room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definite sleeper hit! August 22, 2004
By Kain
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is going to be a sleeper hit for the action-RPG people. The flow and feel of the game is a lot like a really great single player version of Phantasy Star Online, except the fighting is more like Ninja Gaiden/Devil May Cry. You also have a magic meter that builds up as you fight and take damage. Unlike most action RPGs, you will often find yourself fighting up to 30+ enemies on the screen at once; the sound and feel of slashing through such a large horde is definitely gratifying. There are experience points and weapon upgrade points as well as special moves that you can do in battle. Controls and camera are spot on!

I never played Crimson Sea on the Xbox, but I heard it was really bad. Supposedly, this version cleaned up a lot of issues that people had with the Xbox version. You can also view all the cutscenes from the first game in this sequel. There are multiplayer modes in the game (co-op, competitive), but they do not intersect with the single player mode at all.

If you are looking for a level treadmill game that requires some dexterity to play, then this should definitely be on your list.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect action game! February 27, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a very picky gamer; I finish very few games. I often dislike games that the mainstream press gives great reviews. However, this game instantly had me glued to the screen and hasn't let go yet. I'm about 16 hours into it and I'm ready for what looks to be another 14 hours of sheer greatness.

The Graphics- are fantastic. Scores of aliens will be onscreen at a time, yet there is no slowdown, and all of your attacks look fantastic. I haven't gotten tired of all the different attacks yet- they just look so awesome.

The Gameplay- there are plenty of games that try to do what this game succeeds at, but most of them suck. You face off against hoards of aliens while slowly upgrading a very broad array of skills. The game is accessible both to advanced and beginning gamers- old levels can be replayed to get more experience to beat the new ones. The game has 60+ missions, and to get a perfect 100 percent, you will probably have to play them multiple times to get all-S ranks. I'm not usually the type of guy to go for 100 percent completion, but for this game I'm making an exception.

The Story- The really cool thing is that this game comes with all of the cinematics from the first game- some 30-40 minutes. I have yet to find out how the good the story is for this actual game (halfway through), but it is safe to say that the story is, at the very least, solid and stands up as more than just an excuse to kill literally thousands of aliens. The cinematics definitely look nice, too.

The Soundtrack- This is another one of those games where I could see listening to the soundtrack elsewhere. I really hope I can find an import or something.

This is the rare action game that doesn't feel old even after 16 hours of play. Pick it up and prepare to be sucked in.
