Metro: Crimson Alliance review - in the red

The original idea for Crimson Alliance was to give it away free to anyone that bought all five of this year's Summer of Arcade games. For whatever reason that concept was abandoned though and instead it's now a free download - albeit it one where you have to pay to unlock the three different classes, if you want to use them in all the levels and for more than a quick demo in multiplayer.

It's basically the free-to-play model now so common amongst massively multiplayer games. But even though a full unlock costs 1200 Microsoft Points you still end up getting a larger demo than you normally would, so we're not minded to complain too loudly.

The story is too old to be commented.
