OK I read the news that Crimson Skies 2 is a new project with little information about it at this time. The article said they were going to focus on making it like the first version that was out on CPU. To be honest I didn't like the Crimson Skies on XBOX, it was too easy to fly and manuver the plane(the push and click to do a snap roll) I thought that was cheezy. The Computer version was actually close to being a Simulation. I like the Idea of making it like this.

I think if they go toward simulation they'll lose a lot of potential buyers so I don't see that happening. I didnt like the first game anyways though.

I didn't like the PC game a whole lot, but I love the Xbox verison and part of that is due to the controls they just work so great.

I would buy the 2nd because it WASNT a sim. I loved how they made the controls so easy and so much more like an arcade game, like what they did with MechAssault. I wouldn't get it if it were a sim.

The last one on XBox was WAAAAAY too arcady. It had absoluly ZERO depth.

In a 16 player match - Spawn and fly towards big bunchy of planes way off in the distance. Try and get as many kills as possible. Die and repeat.

Damn it I can't wait for this game. I hope they add a co op mode this time round as well as bots in multiplayer. Playing with my brother felt boring. The controls were just right. I prefer using invert controls cos it felt like I'm flying a real plane, sort of.

Yeah, if they made it more like a sim it would actually take talent to get a kill when your playing XBL or regular multi.

This will be great. The first one was a blast. I am sure the second one will also.

I just think the game would be better if you had to manuver your plane. I think it would be cool if you could push a button for airbreaks to pop up and then you could turn sharper. That would be alot more fun.

I thought the first one was fun, but, that's about it...hopefully the second one will have a whole lot "more" of everything.

I loved Crimson Skies for the Xbox, i thought it was way better than the PC older version. I am getting hyped to see news on the second one.

I don't know if I'll be buying the 2nd one. I was hyped and loved Crimson Skies but it was just extremely short lived. I haven't even opened it for a long time. I really can't say why. Just not interested in it anymore.

I just want bots in multiplayer.

Thats one reason I didn't buy the Crimson Skies for the Box. I beat the whole game in 1 and a half days

Crimson skies for the xbox was ok..... Not great. once u blow up a zep or a plane you might as well have blown them all. its all the same, nothing suprising.

loved the first one. I'd like to see the next one achieve 60 fps.
