STAFF REVIEW of Crimson Alliance (Xbox 360 Arcade)

Crimson Alliance Box art Welcome adventurer to the world of Byzan! We are a mighty empire on the edge of the Dead Sea, but we were not always this way. Please come and sit down and I will tell you a tale of seduction, betrayal, honor, friendship, love, and loss. Maybe hearing the old tales will help guide you on your way to fame and fortune in search for our land's treasures? A long time ago there was a young corrupted princess named Asturi who used her beauty to seduce the powerful wizard Magus. Through this deception this dark princess gained unimaginable power and ended up seizing the throne and out casted Magus and left him for dead. During this reign of demonic evil horrible things happened, there was experimentation on sacrifices, dark magic, and even raising the dead. Times were bleak as the empire that once flourished was torn to pieces and teetered on the brink of extinction. This is when out of chance our greatest heroes emerged to bring this empire back to greatness.

Magus, the once powerful wizard that was cast out to die, survived and while his memory may have been temporarily blocked his passion for this empire has never expired. Upon his journey he gains the support of two unlikely allies, Gnox, who is a mighty warrior and one of the deadliest mercenaries alive, and Moonshade, who has the reputation of being the most elusive assassin and one not to be taken lightly. These warriors all bring their own specialties as the wizard Magus focuses on ranged magic attacks, Gnox is a master of close quarter combat, and Moonshade offers a little of both. Together these three adventurers set out on a quest to banish the evil from the land and restore the great empire of Byzan.


During their quest, our three heroes came across sacred treasures from across the great land and they even came into artifacts that assisted them in their journey. Tales of blades that were made of fire, shields which were born of lightning itself, and magic so powerful that no enemy could resist it's force, reached the ears of the surviving humans and stoked the fires of hope and encouraged the desire to overcome this demonic evil. Legend tells that they came across items such as remote turrets, monster bait, throwing axes and healing totems that when used properly greatly assisted our warriors as they tackled the evils of the land. Using tactics in battle such as normal and strong attacks combined with stun attacks and dashing abilities this group of three had all the skills necessary to overcome any obstacle that stood in their way.

I'm sure now you are wondering what ever happened to our three brave adventurers and what happened that made the kingdom of Byzan the way it is today. That my friend will have to come at a price. Journeys start with a single step and if you wish to know more and how the story ends, then it is up to you. 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. So what do you say adventurer? Care to make a deal?
