Crimsonland (PS4/PS VITA/PC) - Video Game Review
It’s been a while since I last played a decent top-down shooter, and even longer since I last played one that felt as solid as Crimsonland. Though it has its flaws, mostly in presentation and variety, Crimsonland shines in its ability to deliver a gore-filled, arcadey shooter that will keep players hooked.
The main objective of Crimsonland isn’t a difficult one to grasp: survive the waves of demons filling the screen by blowing them to bits with cool weapons. Does doing this get old? Nope. Between the large array of 30+ weapons to use and the unforgiving amount of enemies that blow up oh so satisfyingly, it’s hard to pull yourself away from the gore-fest.
Unfortunately, a large downside to Crimsonland is its presentation. Neither the levels, nor the character models are particularly interesting, and the soundtrack is rarely more than some blaring metal music or cheesy rock tune coupled with generic sound effects. Some would argue that these are used to create a retro vibe to the game, but overall it feels like they could’ve made the game much more appealing to the eyes and ear while keeping the old-school look and feel.
It’s worth mention that though Crimsonland may not be incredibly gorgeous, the developers at 10tons managed to fit an astounding amount of enemies on-screen at once. Nothing drives the point of helplessness more than being backed into a corner with a swarm of hundreds of demons that want your head all coming at you. Crimsonland looks best when you’re near the end of a level and every inch of the ground is covered with the blood and scattered limbs of your enemies.
In terms of content, Crimsonland supplies enough to make it worth your dollar. Quest mode offers a large amount of levels with several unlockable difficulties that give you more than enough reasons to come back, including the ability to unlock several survival modes with unique twists as you play through the quest mode. If Crimsonland can hold your attention long enough, then you have plenty of content to last you.
I wouldn’t necessarily say that the gaming industry needs more games like Crimsonland, but retro-style games that are done well are more than welcome every now and then. Crimsonland provides a solid and all-around entertaining experience for lovers of top-down gorefests. Unfortunately, its overall poor presentation keeps it from being a very memorable game, but its strength lies in filling you with twisted satisfaction and fiery rage. That’s why Crimsonland receives a score of 73/100

One time Matt Damon guest starred on Arthur and he looked horrifying.
"so should we draw Matt as a human or as an aardvark?"
This is someone dying while having an MRI scan. Before you die, your brain releases tons and tons of endorphins that make you feel a range of emotions. Tragically beautiful.
