Crimson Sea (2002)
Developer: Koei Co., Ltd.
Platform: X-Box
Purchase Date: 12/27/2002

Phantasy Star Offline.

The best way to describe Crimson Sea is that it is a Phantasy Star Online clone. Maybe it's better to describe it as a poor man's Phantasy Star Online. From the spaceship hub to the long range/short range weaponry and the sci-fi tinged storyline, the whole game reeks plagiarism. Still, it's actually a pretty decent game that contains a lot of interesting missions, over-sexualized characters, and massive boss battles. Adding an online co-op mode would have helped this game. It is always a good thing to see Koei doing something different than continually milking their Dynasty Warriors series though...

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
