Danday Reviews: Castle Crashers

Console: Xbox 360
Age Rating: 16+ (EU) M (US)
Publisher: The Behemoth
Developer: The Behemoth

Remember back the 1990's when we had awesome games like Streets of Rage or Golden Axe? Well, The Behemoth have decided to revive the genre with Castle Crashers. And only one word can express how I feel about the game; amazing.
You play as one of four characters, each with their own special powers, but there are other characters to unlock.
The controls are very fluid and responsive. It sounds like brainless button bashing, but it's like in Sonic Unleashed. There is more than meets the eye. As your character upgrades, you get more button combinations.
The game's soundtrack is really good. It reminds me of 300 for it's epicness.
The game's multiplayer is, however, very good if you have the right people, like all online games.
One downside is the price. This is too little game for 1200 points. 800 points would be a perfect price for this game.
All in all, Castle Crashers is one of The Behemoth's best games. It's fluid, funny and violent. Think a cartoony 300, and you've got it.
It's THAT good!

Score: 9.1/10
