YMMV / Crimson Dragon

  • Broken Base: Either people are happy the game is finally out, or wonder why it was even released for the Xbox One (instead of the Xbox 360 as originally planned) because the graphics are definitely not up to next-gen standards. Also, the online & pay-to-win elements have turned off people who were expecting Panzer Dragoon 5.
  • More Popular Spin Off: Crimson Dragon: Side Story, and for a good reason: it ACTUALLY came out unlike the main game which was once supposed to be Xbox LIVE Arcade Kinect game.
  • Tainted by the Preview: As the Spiritual Successor to Panzer Dragoon, fans were happy to see the series return in some form to the Xbox 360 for Xbox Live Arcade, until they learned it will only be exclusive to the Kinect and not support traditional controllers. Eventually, the game did get traditional controller support after high demand...until the game was shifted to launch alongside the Xbox One instead.
