    Fairytale Fights is a game that could and should have been great, but instead ends up a boring, bargain bin experience that I recommend passing on. It's got a great premise, take players on a bloody and maturely twisted romp through the world of fairytales with familiar faces and a mature sense of humor. The only problem is it never takes it's ability to be a maturely funny game farFairytale Fights is a game that could and should have been great, but instead ends up a boring, bargain bin experience that I recommend passing on. It's got a great premise, take players on a bloody and maturely twisted romp through the world of fairytales with familiar faces and a mature sense of humor. The only problem is it never takes it's ability to be a maturely funny game far enough, all it does is slap some blood and gore on it and call it mature humor. The gameplay itself is also a big disappointment, you basically hack and slash your way through seemingly endless waves of enemies in annoyingly long levels and fight a boss battle that drags on forever, it's all just really repetitive and boring, and it makes the whole game seem much longer than it actually is. The controls are a mess, you do get used to them eventually, however the combat would have been much smoother with a traditional control scheme. The camera is also a big problem it's either zoomed out to far or zoomed in to close making it hard to see yourself among the enemies in the more crowded levels. The game does have some good things going for like great graphics with a cool style and one or two cool levels, and online four player co-op (avoid the arena mode at all costs) but the game is just so boring I really don't recommend this to any gamer, which is sad because this could have been great, hopefully a sequel will be made that gets it right.

    The game has a great visual style, but repetitive gameplay caused me to never be able to finish the game. Fun, but not for small kids due to the gore and violence against bunnies.

  1. The moral of this fairytale is to avoid playing this game.
  2. 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.
  3. It is love and hate all mixed up when Little Red Riding Hood meets Dead Rising.
