DescriptionCrusader: No Regret is a direct sequel to Crusader: No Remorse, its events starting 46 hours after those depicted in the previous game. The protagonist of the game, a silencer known as the Captain, manipulates his escape pod into a WEC freighter heading towards the moon. There, WEC has established itself as the sole power, overseeing mining procedures and using the moon as prison for dissidents. The Resistance members are forced to work for WEC, extracting a precious radioactive component, Di-Corellium. The powerful corporation is not happy to see the Captain on the moon, and he has to use all his wits and skills to survive as WEC, led by Chairman Draygan, is trying to hunt him down.
The game looks and plays very similarly to its predecessor, being an isometric shooter in which the Captain can also jump, run, roll, and kneel to avoid enemy attacks. A few new weapons and death animations have been added. The game's structure is somewhat more straightforward compared to the previous installment. In No Remorse, the Captain was limited to carry five weapons; in No Regret, this limitation has been removed.

Cancelled sequelA third Crusader game was going to be released by Origin, but as it turns out the company diverted all resources to running Ultima Online and the sequel got cancelled. No significant work was completed on the so-called Crusader: No Mercy but some early screenshots got released (and can still be found around the net) that showcased one of the major additions the sequel was to have: multiplayer gameplay.
German versionBlood effects, gore, death cries and the possibility to burn/shoot corpses were removed. Some death animations were changed: fire, UV-9 Pulsar XP-5 Broiler and Disruptor. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).
ExtrasThe original box version includes 'Top Line', a printed edition of the Lunar Mining Cartel daily newsletter. Among the articles is the term 'iffies' which probably means interactive movies.
