Hop into the cockpit and take to the blue yonder over the devastated landscape of a fictional 1937 America in Crimson Skies. Although well known for detailed, realistic flight simulators, Microsoft takes a slightly more arcade-style approach to flight combat in this release, with an emphasis on fast, furious dogfighting over the realistically sophisticated control schemes found in the Microsoft Flight Simulator titles.
As the notorious air pirate Nathan Zachary, players will defend their airspace from attacks by rival bandits. Zachary flies solo or leads his squadron of privateers through several objective based missions and is always on the lookout for new technology and fighter designs that will help to keep his team on top.
Up to 11 different models of aircraft become available to players over the course of the game. A detailed storyline, supported by mission-specific air chatter and cinematic cut scenes, fleshes out the plot and provides the context and motivation for Nathan Zachary's heroic exploits. ~ T.J.
