    With its great sense of humor, exciting narrative, cool art style and fun stage play antics, you would think that Foul Play would be at the top of everybody's must-buy list.

Amazing handcrafted art, a large variety of combos, and a main character who looks just like the pringles guy. The gameplay is fast, intuitive and never really gets boring.

    The idea of an on-stage brawler alone is pretty genius, seeing the audiences reaction to your on-screen action is bloody awesome. The fact that Foul Play is good enough to going to keep me away from playing GTA 5 for the weekend should say something too, lol :)

    My english isnt that good, so ill just stick with the pros and cons:

    +graphics, handcrafted +gameplay, mechanics +level up system +unlockable goodies and combos //+rewarding button mashing +humour, dialogues

    cons: so far i didnt really find cons, though its too bad the game doesnt really have a voiceover. i imagine how amazing it would be to have the pringles guy aka Baron Dashforth with an english accent.

The gameplay is repetitive, you need to press the same attack button for achieve the best combo. The sound is repetitive, same music from stage to stage. It's not even original as an idea. I don't vote 0 because have a good design. Full Review »
