IGN Pens a Crimsonland Review Dripping With Panache

The blood sprays everywhere and despite a few flaws, Crimsonland is a definite stress-reliever.

The blood sprays everywhere and despite a few flaws, Crimsonland is a definite stress-reliever.

The game originally released on the PC way back in 2003 and now, over a decade later, it has landed on the PlayStation 4. It’s ridiculously bloody and perhaps a tad outdated, but that’s no reason to give it a pass. If you’re looking for a total guilty pleasure and a fun way to pass a rainy day, indulge in the ultra-red atmosphere of Crimsonland.

But don’t take our word for it (thanks, LeVar Burton); check out IGN’s great review. Critic Colin Moriarty delivers a top-tier analysis of the chaotic title, which uncertain consumers should consider. After all, reviewers continue to provide a public service, so why not take advantage of that service?

Then again, maybe you’re already swayed by the name. Anything called “Crimsonland” just can’t be boring, after all. For the rest, we’ll let Moriarty explain in his well-balanced, well-written review.

Not like there's a lot of blood, or anything.

Why We Like It:

The review doesn’t wander or meander; it comes straight to the point, while still remaining robust. Has anyone noticed that when amateurs write reviews, the evaluation just continually heads off on unfulfilled tangents? This is an example of tight, professional writing.

— There’s a nice blend of personal preference and objective analysis, which is critical for any quality review. Feel free to offer that personal note, but don’t forget that readers come to you for your expertise as well.

— The critic doesn’t lose sight of the admittedly puerile purpose of the game. Well, of course it’s puerile but at the same time, that’s what makes it such a guilty pleasure.

Congrats, Colin!

Liiiiitle too much blood for me. LOL

This game was lots of fun back in the day, but I’m not sure it holds up. I’ll give it a try if I’m bored.
