    Overall there is a lot CastleStorm has to offer with a reasonable size campaign and multiplayer options too. Minor control niggles aside, if you are looking for something to play other than Angry Birds on the Vita you could certainly do with picking up a copy of this to see you through those winter (K)nights.

    A tower defense game that challenges your intellect and convinces with a unique visual style. The castle editor extends the experience, though overall CastleStorm lacks the content to be anything more than a quickie while waiting for the next big title to hit the shelves.

    I haven't posted many reviews here on Metacritic in recent weeks, but I’ve had suuuuuch a blast with CastleStorm on my Vita, that I justI haven't posted many reviews here on Metacritic in recent weeks, but I’ve had suuuuuch a blast with CastleStorm on my Vita, that I just couldn’t resist logging in and shouting it from the rooftops!

    CastleStorm is one of those rare games that within minutes of booting it up for the very first time, you’re sucked right into the heart of the action…and it just gets better and better the more you play it. Highly recommended for fans of strategy, adventure and even physics-based puzzlers! Whether you’re after a casual pick-up-and-play experience or something more meaty with tons of depth, CastleStorm has you covered.

    I realise that I’m gushing a little here, but as far as I’m concerned, Zen’s latest PSN offering is right up there with the very best downloadables available on Vita today. Yep, *THAT* good!
