  1. There's no way to break the curse on this staggeringly bad action game.
  2. Despite its many promises, this game falls short, with redundant gameplay, unreliable controls, and lackluster storytelling.
  3. There are clearly some talented people at Playlogic - notably whoever did the endearing cut-scenes, which play out like Hanna-Barbera doing The Matrix. How something so colourful and quirky became so bland is a mystery of the creative process.
  4. It's ugly; it's slippery; all of the enemies blend together because they're all the frickin' same... it's awe-inspiringly bad, really. Not since Superman 64 have I played something this stomach-wrenching, and at least in the end that was funny-horrible. This one skips by funny-horrible and goes right back to bad.
  5. As a hack-and-slash platformer, Fairytale Fights could have been a success. On top of a consistent and admittedly appealing theme, it has all the right ingredients to fit the genre: countless weapons, challenging levels and 4-player co-op. But with repetitive gameplay and unrewarding challenges, this title falls very, very short of becoming the next Castle Crashers.
  6. Dull and repetitious, Fairytale Fights is one of the worst products of this generation. Stupid Control System, iterative gameplay, creepy graphics are the main issues with the game.
  7. Decent combat, but 40 quid is a fairytale price for this sub-PSN effort. [Christmas 2009, p.88]
  8. While it can be briefly enjoyable and provide a few giggles and chuckles, it quickly becomes repetitive and boring. Co-op helps, but in the end, poor controls and lack of genuinely entertaining qualities will drive most players away.
  9. In fairytale terms this game is a poisoned apple and if it doesn’t kill you it will probably put you to sleep.

This is a horrible science project, that the only way to stop it was to, split it apart, burn it into disc´s, sell them to around the world. Full Review »

    Bad taste, bad gameplay, an immature take on a solid genre. Not worth a download for a few euros
