  1. If you have the capacity to overlook its technical issues and have a group of friends who like the genre, the game could be worth a download. However, until a patch arrives, the game cannot be wholeheartedly recommended.
  2. Overall, it's a good quality title that does indeed deserve at least a look at the demo.
  3. If you're a fan of Live Arcade games and you've got some MS Points burning a whole in your virtual pocket, then this should definitely be part of your collection. If you're a bit more picky about what you play though, try out the demo first.

    The problem is that. at press time, Castle Crashers is as glitchy as it gets. [Fall 2008, p.54]

    If you were that kid who was pulled away from the TMNT cabinets by an angry mum, who couldn’t wait for Golden Axe to appear on a home console, and who played Streets Of Rage 2 over and over, Castle Crashers is for you. [Nov 2008, p.103]

    Four-player joy, but lone gamers will find something missing. [Dec 2008, p.84]
  8. Castle Crashers is an entertaining brawler, but the replay value is chopped into little frustrating bits by a horrifically painful online experience.

    The grind-heavy mechanics may be for online obsessives, but solo players shouldn't bother. [Dec 2008, p.103]

It also has a lot of comedy in the middle of all of the fun gameplay. For example, as you are fighting through the forest and all of the animals are dying of constipation. The game lets you also play with up to 3 other players. As you can see, this game is loads of fun and can be fun with 3 other friends too. Full Review »

    One of the best action RPG games I've ever played on a console.
    Too much fun, full of interesting challenges and crazy enemies.
