A follow-up to Microsoft's acclaimed PC title Crimson Skies, High Road to Revenge continues the adventures of crack pilot Nathan Zachary as he sets out to avenge the death of his best friend in alternate 1930s America. The game focuses on the action associated with flying a plane rather than the technical aspects of a simulation, so players will engage in dogfights using one of ten planes armed with napalm missiles, magnetic grapples, and sandstorm cannons. Each of the landscapes offer destructible terrain, allowing players to shoot down bridges, water towers, create landslides, and more to help in defeating enemies. In addition to the single-player story mode, up to four pilots can battle each other in a series of split-screen sorties. Less

The first online baseball game released for home consoles, Inside Pitch 2003 is the start of a new sports franchise by Microsoft Game Studios. The most noteworthy difference between Inside Pitch and its peers is the full support of Xbox Live for one-on-one competition, tracked won-loss records, viewable batting and pitching stats, and voice communication. Online functionality also enables players to download the latest roster updates or even completely new stadiums and save them to the hard drive for future games. <br><br>In addition to such traditional options as Practice, Single Game, Season, Playoffs, and the Home Run Derby, Inside Pitch features a mode called Championship Challenges, where players try their hand at re-creating or changing actual events culled from the 2002 season. Challenges include Barry Bonds' pursuit of 600 home runs, Derek Lowe's no-hitter, Craig Biggio hitting for the cycle, breaking the tie at the 2002 All-Star Game, and more. Completing these challenges earns players points for use on created athletes. <br><br>These created superstars can also develop their skills by participating in the Training Tracks, a competition offering a series of seven fielding drills, five pitching drills, and six hitting drills in a choice of stadiums. Other features designed to set Inside Pitch apart from similar titles include real-time scoreboard animations and on-field memorials dedicated to milestones achieved during the season. More than 300 player faces were scanned to create an air of authenticity to the visual presentation, and an assortment of signature stances and pitching deliveries were re-created in motion-capture sessions headed by cover star Nomar Garciaparra.<br><br>World Series broadcasters Joe Buck and Tim McCarver handle the play-by-play and color commentary, respectively, with over 25,000 lines of dialogue recorded specifically for the game. Inside Pitch 2003 also supports the Xbox's custom soundtrack feature for the music that plays in the stadium. Now players can select any of the songs stored on the Xbox hard drive, determine a starting and ending point, and have them echo through the stadium's PA System whenever their favorite hitters stroll out to the plate.

Good airlplane games have always been hard to find no matter what system you look on. Back in the old PC games all of the irplane simulators were so in-depth you really needed a pilot license to understand what you were doing. Later, more arcade style games of this genre would come out that were... Read full review »

Pros Tight controls, fun gameplay, nice graphics.
Cons Short in single player...more "fly through the canyon" missions.
Recommended it? Yes

Flight combat games have been one of my favorite niche genres ever since I'd played the original Red Baron on my PC. That thing must have been running at, like, 3 frames a second when there were 4 or more planes on the screen, but damn if I wasn't having a good time every 1/3rd of a second. I'd...
