Crimson Dragon isn’t just a terrible for “free-to-pay” game, but also a criminal Panzer Dragoon game

Crimson Dragon is a boring, uninspired free-to-play title. That would be bad enough on iOS, but this is a game that’s sold for $20, and was sold as the spiritual successor to the Panzer Dragoon series. The result isn’t just bad, it’s downright heartbreaking if you’re a fan of the original games.

lol...and knack is even worse and it cost 3 times as much. Don't try and trow salt just because that other launch didn't go so well.

Knack has a higher metacritic than this game.

Deal with it

Knack is actually a fun game, so maybe this game is fun too. I don't know what is up with reviewers as of late but I find myself in constant disagreement with them. Kind of sad really, I remember being a kid and eagerly reading my copy of GamePro magazine or EGM. I would constantly read the same issue, back then reviews where on point and you could guarantee that if a reviewer said it was a good game than most of the time it was. Nowadays most of the time reviewers are just wrong 90% of the time.

It only scored 2 points higher...its just as bad xD except with crimson dragon you don't lose as much money.

Knack - 56 - $60
CD. - 54 - $20

Knack is the bigger fail here, use your head.

Have you played Knack or Crimson Dragon so as to make your own judgements?

As someone who's played all four titles with the Panzer Dragoon name under them I can say that from what I've seen CD that I don't like that they seem to talk all the time. That you're part of a group, could be anyone, instead of a single protagonist. That the game continues where Otra retread with PD 1 & 2 instead of expanding on the open world Sage introduced. But then CD is only a download title.

Pintheshadows1770d ago

Belking, have you actually played a game? And I mean ever. I really doubt that you have. Your opinions are just those of internet sites. You are desperately pathetic.

Mystogan1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Knack - metacritic 56 - $60
CD. - meta critic 54 - $20

Both are bad but I'd rather lose $20 than $60 xD

This passed yet the title, from the way I read it, makes absolutely no sense, what is going on here?

Ha, Sony Fans at their best, title isn't exact to the one from the article, yet no one noticed, no one pointed it out and no one reported the article, way to go guys!

But I mean, it insults Microsofts Exclusives so it must pass even if it doesn't hit criteria.


Just look again, try reading "Terrible for" on the original article, because it isn't there.

Original Article - Crimson Dragon isn’t just a terrible “free-to-pay” game, but also a criminal Panzer Dragoon game

This Article - Crimson Dragon isn’t just a terrible for “free-to-pay” game, but also a criminal Panzer Dragoon game

All these disagrees yet I'm right.

ThatCanadianGuy5141770d ago

1) This is the correct title.

2) This was written by Ben kuchera, one of the biggest MS apologists alive.Even more then you, if you can believe it.

But hey, blame it on Sony fanboys for some reason i guess.Not like you ever made sense before.Why start now, right?

MasterCornholio1770d ago

The Games terrible

Deal with it

Mystogan1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Knack is $60 and is just as terrible.

Knack - 56 - $60
CD. - 54 - $20

Deal With it

Removing "For" from the title does not take change the context of the message.

Fireseed1770d ago

This is very dissapointing, really wanted another good Panzer Dragoon game after I recently sold my copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga. Guess this one didn't make it through the grinder that was Micrsofts very toxic hands on approach with with exclsuives. Thankfully they've opened up as of late but a few didn't make it through :/

Crimson Dragon

R.I.P. Guys :'(

Godmars2901770d ago

"I recently sold my copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga."

Yeah, welcome to the club pal: I sold all three. Bought Orta along with the Xbox, and sold same.

Still have my Saturn though...

Fireseed1770d ago

Yeah it sucks being without them, but like you; I did keep my Saturn.

If anything this is making me wish more a new StarFox than for another crack at Panzer Dragoon.

True_Samurai1770d ago

Free To Play? ill give it a try

Godmars2901770d ago

Is this a $20 download title, a F2P title where you have "the option" to pay for continues, or a $20 download game you'll have to pay for continues at some point? Because the last especially sounds horrible.

Worse that its been a 360/kinect title in limbo for a few years and doesn't sound like it has much content. That's unforgivable.

Hicken1770d ago

In any case, it seems to be bad, all-around.
