Have You Played… Crimson Skies?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Still the flight sim I think most fondly of, with the possible exception of Stunt Island, but you should probably bear in mind that I'm a dumb-dumb stupid-head without the patience or manual dexterity for full-fat flight sims. Crimson Skies lifts me into…

In this week's Gaming Made Me, Brendan Caldwell revisits a time when flight sims could have had it all - and a time when zeppelins still ruled the Earth. This is Zipper Interactive's 2000 alterna-history aerial shooter Crimson Skies, and this is why it matters. There are clouds above Hawaii. And there are monuments above the clouds. Who could have foreseen either of these things?…

Crimson Skies Flies Again?

Oh my, I really do hope so. I confess don't have much time for flight sims these days, but the greatest love I've ever felt for this most venerable of PC genres is divided equally between Stunt Island (a game I've been deliberating how to best write about for several years now) and Crimson Skies. The latter is a wonderful thing, a out-and-out joyous blend…
