Description

Three years after the original Crimson Skies, FASA Studio brings the game to the Xbox in an adapted version (not a port). Set in an alternate 1930s world of gunship diplomacy and sinister intrigue, Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge lets gamers pilot aircraft against nefarious air pirates and behemoth war zeppelins.

You take the role of the daring air pirate Nathan Zachary, leader of the infamous Fortune Hunters. The high-flying adventure's single player campaign is filled with escapes, defense/escort missions and dogfights. You can take on friends over Xbox Live! as well.
