    I would like to say that I am not a big online player type of person, I prefer to play with friends who are right next to me. Not to say that I don't play online on games at all, just rarely that's all. Castle crashers is probably one of the best multiplayer games out there, it has just about everything a player wants in this type of game. Different characters, variety in weapons, and funI would like to say that I am not a big online player type of person, I prefer to play with friends who are right next to me. Not to say that I don't play online on games at all, just rarely that's all. Castle crashers is probably one of the best multiplayer games out there, it has just about everything a player wants in this type of game. Different characters, variety in weapons, and fun levels. All in all: customization. Of course this game isn't focused on a story because the story is simple: the princess has been captured go save her! Besides the great multiplayer, this games has some awesome bosses to fight. From fighting the annoyingly difficult Ice king, the acid inspired painter, and the necromancer with a jamming heavy metal soundtrack. With all this praise I do have some problems with the game. For instance I think that the characters don't have many differences from each other. Sure they may look alike and have a different magic, but that's it really. I guess it's just pick who you think looks cool, which is good because there's no dominant character. The game does seem repetitive, you only get to play the story mode, arena, and volleyball. The story is the main reason, it's the longest lasting part because the others are not long enough. In the end, this is an awesome game, and I definitely recommend this to any group of friends.

    the game is goofy and a lot of fun to play with friends, but I find that it often gets really hectic and I end up losing my character on the screen, which really takes you out of the game, and I wish the game had a bit more to it, because its pretty simple gameplay in my opinion.

    It's during the co-op play that this really hits its stride. [Jan 2011, p.121]
