Crimson Dragon review | Digital Trends

What is it with console launches offering up dragon flight simulators that aren’t nearly as awesome as that combination of words suggests? It happened on the PlayStation 3 with Lair and it happens again on the Xbox One with Crimson Dragon. (Crimson Dragon, Xbox One) 2.5/5

to be fair, aside from the showing on E3, even Microsoft themselves were not pushing for this game at all during their hands-on demos they organized a couple of times last month. they game is almost a no show despite being a launch title. so, this is really to be expected.

I wouldnt sweat it. game reviews and journalism is a cancer on the industry. Everything operates in a hive mind especially with the bigger sites. These opinion are actually copied summaries of each other based off of the trends that the community sets.

In short the gaming community are not checking for rail shooters, games like this and toss a little kinect in there, even if the game is perfect and the dev accomplished exactly what they wanted a game like this would score low.
These days the only way to judge a game is by experiencing it your self followed by lots of information about the game based on what the creators say. You have to deduce whether or not it will work for you. Reviewers are just random people with no real expertise. They could be completely missing half the game or doing something completely wrong that you wouldnt and there review will reflect what they like... not necessarily us.

I loved Panzer Dragoon as a series, this is the closest thing I will be getting to it, day one.

I was hoping it would be more kinect heavy myself like a Chid of Eden with dragons. The reviews havent really explained the control options well at all. either way day one.

Me too! I have to support it, but its clear it wont come close to Orta😢
Godmars290  +   315d ago
Why?

Never got the mentality of supporting something which is overall bad. If something bad sells well you'll only get more of the same.

They went from a Nausicaa Valley of the Wind theme where an individual navigated a post-apocalyptic bio-engineered world to a Squad basted Dragon Riders of Pern. A Pern in an early colonial stage yet with a competent understanding of the world while having all their tech at that. Doubt they're going to change back the gears.

And unless you've played the original three games, sorry, but you just don't know what you're talking about.

Orta was beautiful but pale and empty sequel.

Because Im sure Ill like the game on some level. Orta was fantasic, this is not that, but I still love the style and mechanics is brings. I need that PD type fix and been missing it for years.

Besides, Im not going to kill a dev just because they couldnt hit it out the park on their first at bat. I still believe in this team, and I still have hope that one day we will see a PD Saga style RPG. They will get better as time goes on I think.

My man...Ive owned and beat EVERY SINGLE PD game ever made. Orta was great. Yes, it lacked the depth of Saga, but compare to the other shooter in the series it was damn good.

Panzer Dragoon Saga type RPG? Why, yes. Yes, please coz we all know Sega ain't gonna do it. So somebody else should.

Edit:
Okay, so you've played all of the other PD and not just Orta. That just means we're two different gamers.

I'd rather an actual or "spiritual" sequel be more than something with a name slapped on it, and IMO Orta was exactly that.

Ps4 it is then.

Stop lying, just looking at your previous comments you would never get a Xbox One so stop trolling.

Crimson Dragon was your deciding factor of next-gen consoles?
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   315d ago
this pay to play/win formula is gonna be very problematic this gen I see. Anyway..was only buying forza and ryse so this still won't too bad of a pickup for twenty bucks. I would have paid twenty bucks for a remastered version of panzer dragoon orta though.
