    An absolute addiction, a thoroughly entertaining beat’em up. Despite its age (it was first released for the Xbox, four years ago), it’s a first class option for frantic co-op mayhem. [November 2012]

It has it all. Excellent fluid gameplay that stands up to multiple playthroughs. Humor. Difficulty. AND IT'S CHEAP AS DIRT. Now that's what an indie game should be. High quality oldschool gameplay for a few dollars. Forget all these boring cookie cutter art games coming out. I want to PLAY my games. Expand

    Castle Crashers was originally a console exclusive indie Beat Em Up game but now it's available on Steam for a decent price alongside its DLC. The game consists of a medieval style plot, with humor and a lot of blood and gore added to the mix with its Beat Em Up gameplay style that clearly will scream nostalgia for fans of Streets of Rage, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Battletoads and Final Fight it also includes a RPG Leveling up system which adds a bit more depth to the overall gameplay experience as you can increase your stats or learn new attacks. The game also provides a great multiplayer experience with up to 4 players who can engage in the main campaign which comes in two difficulty flavors or duke it out in a arena type PVP style mode.

My fiance and I loved playing this game through, finding all the secrets and using the unique mechanics. Despite the fun it gives there are a few things that could have been improved. Enemies take a long time and a lot of hits to kill which can be annoying when you just want to progress and waves of enemies keep flooding in. Leveling up is a chore. Leveling up takes longer than it should. Weapons are interchangeable and samey, most of the weapons look different and thats it. The animal companions are cute and sometimes helpful but most of them are usually ineffective and never deliver.
    Overall, this game is okay alone, a blast with a friend or two but after a fun 1st play through but i dont think you can enjoy it as much a second time.

    Este juego intenta parecer un RPG cuando en realidad tiene muy poco o nada de estas mecanicas. Los enemigos son muy resistentes y no hayEste juego intenta parecer un RPG cuando en realidad tiene muy poco o nada de estas mecanicas. Los enemigos son muy resistentes y no hay muchas mejoras por obtener. Tampoco podes personalizar a tu personaje, y si bien el multijugador es divertido, las mecanicas de juego no son del todo satisfactorias, siendo un machacabotones constante. Los graficos estan muy bien y la musica decente. En conclusion, juego divertido pero solo para pasar el rato con tus amigos. Puede llegar a ser muy tedioso y repetitivo, hasta aburrido. Expand
