Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Crimson Sea pits you against an unknown enemy that hides in the shadows. Vibration, sound, movement, everything hints at a presence that is slowly approaching. Where are they? Where will they appear? Experience the tension and thrill of the hunt. Then suddenly they're here--all around you. Thousands, tens of thousands of alien creatures fill the screen. Fear tightens its grip as you fire off burst after burst until gradually fear changes to the excitement of prevailing against overwhelming odds.

Fight for your life as you are surrounded by the hoards! A new and improved Group Control engine puts more than 1,000 enemies in your sights at once. Liquid aliens change shape as they attack. Watch as these enemies of unknown origin morph before your very eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars BG: Dark Alliance in 3D with guns and bugs and stuff. December 30, 2002
Gameplay:
Basically, this game plays like a combination of Dynasty Warriors and the aforementioned Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. The game basically has two segments: Quests and Hubs. Quests are the action portions where the real gameplay comes in, and Hubs are the various places you go in-between missions to train of purchase items or just chat with NPCs. These various play types do a great deal to spice up what could have otherwise been a rather repetitive game. There are some rather interesting facets to these levels that make them deeper than they appear.
In-between Quests you spend your time at the hub. Most of the time this is a large spaceship. In this hub there are NPCs that you can talk to, vendor droids that you can buy supplies or weaponry from, and training rooms that you can use to increase your fighting abilities. The hubs are the most "RPG"ish areas of the game, and much of the game's depth is exhibited in these areas. For instance, the game has a detailed weaponry system. Basically, you buy three weapon parts from the vendor, parts which you can combine to make different weapon effects: barrels, effectors, and generators. These various parts change how you gun fires (machine gun, bazooka, guided missiles, etc.), as well as how long you can use it for and what bonuses you get for using it. This system adds quite a bit of strategy to the Quests, as there is no really all-powerful weapon. Items, such as health kits, HP and BP (MP, basically) enhancers, and various other tools of the trade, can also be bought. Also, the hubs are the places that you learn new neo-psionic attacks.
Controls:
Control is actually one of this game's biggest problems. Control is sort of done in the style of Resident Evil. Left/right rotates you, up is forward, down is back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is it all that it can be? May 8, 2003
I'm an avid gamer and rpg's are my focus. After picking up the Xbox, my next goal was to aquire a rpg worthy of attention and detail... along comes Crimson Sea. At first glance, the artwork is wonderful, the levels are beautiful, and the characters actually have character. The hardest part of the experience was adjusting to the first person shooter feel. There are enough baddies to keep both you and the Orkin man quite busy. The game play is quite linear, and once a quest is completed, you can't go back to the area. You do have the option of selecting which quest to complete, but there are no side quests or freedom of movement within the game. There are a few annoying quests that deal with a timer, invisible critters, and a pushy IGA guard chasing you around... it gets old quick.
Over all, this game was fun to play, however it was quick to finish and is definitely a rental. I do look forward to more titles by KOEI and this gives me hope for future rpgs for the xbox

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying? December 22, 2002
By A Customer
This game is 50 dollars, its a good game to play to be honest very fun. But this game has many downfalls, its only 5-7 hours long and it doesnt have much of a plot, and the ending isnt very good either, this is an awesome rental game but not worth 50 dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games for the Xbox!!! June 29, 2013
By Raven
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game before and the graphics are to die for <3 They are so fluid and lifelike (unexpected for xbox. in my own opinion, this is one of those games where you pop it in, you will have a hard time shutting off your Xbox

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game,So Far August 6, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Crimson Sea,has so far,been a great game to play. At its core its really just a Phantasy Star clone,or to put it in not-so-harsh terms its the Xbox's Phantasy Star (the Xbox was supposed to get PSU,but it was canned and brought over to the 360 instead.)

Story wise you start out as a 'man for hire' named Sho. Sho gets a job from a mysterious lady who's willing to pay him big bucks to do it. Sho accepts and soon finds out he was tricked into joining a type of military force trying to eradicate an alien force,See sounds Phantasy Starish haha, The icing on the cake is that it uses an upgradable hybrid gun and sword that's laser powered.

Graphics wise this game looks pretty good,It was released in 2002 so don't expect the game to look like FF12 or Otogi 2.

Gameplay wise its Phantasy Star Universe meets Dynasty Warriors you get the PSU gameplay with the hoards of enemies like DW,surprisingly there is no slowdown that I have noticed.

All in all if you still own an Xbox,and have yet to play this game,I recommend you do! This game never received much attention in 2002,I think it deserves a second shot.

PS: I only say its been a good game so far because I have only played it for 2 hours ^-^.

5.0 out of 5 stars Futuristic DW3 With Great Graphics January 22, 2003
By A Customer
There isn't much more than I can add to other reviewers. If you liked Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Dead To Rights, Buffy, Max Payne, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, Baldur's Gate, Dynasty Warriors 3, or like Japanese games, definitely at least give this game a rent. Controls do get in the way a little, but not enough to make the game bad. I can't be overstated how fluid battling hundreds of thousands of enemies at once feels.
On the personal note. This was off the hook for me, and exceeded my high expectations. However, I don't feel everyone will have the same impressions. If you were interested initially, you probably won't go wrong picking up this game.
