Crimson Dragon is a competent arcade shooter, but its heavy grinding and weak presentation drag down the pace.

Read full review

Crimson Dragon's got other, bigger problems, though, and like the wave of games it was announced alongside - Diabolical Pitch, Steel Battalion, Haunt and Rise of Nightmares - it's a disappointment, even if it's one that was postponed to the new generation of consoles. It's a thin and troubled tribute to the original Panzer Dragoons, slim on the ambition, vision and art that made its predecessors what they were - and some way short of the invention and execution in the games they inspired.

Spiritual or not this is a poor sequel to the Panzer Dragoon games, and its tame and repetitive action will certainly not win the series any new fans.

The spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon offers a compelling on-rails experience, even if it feels a bit lacking in some areas. With multiple dragons to own and level up, as well as and addictive scoring system complete with leaderboards, there are a few good reasons to plop down $20.

Crimson Dragon might offer fans a few cheap thrills of rail shooters, but the repetitive gameplay grows old quickly

Crimson Dragon attempts to bring on-rails shooters into the modern era, but fails to recreate the genre's classic straightforward action in the process.

Crimson Dragon is a total misfire

While the premise of riding, growing, bonding and battling with a dragon is a cool concept, it's not fleshed out here. The game also recycles levels too much.
