Castle Crashers Review (PlayStation 3)
Castle Crashers Review Pros:
- Bright cartoon graphics.
- Platinum trophy.
- Has 4 player online/offline or a mixture of both capabilities
- Tutorial level (optional).
- You level up by killing enemies and can upgrade your stats
- You find animals that fly around with you that have buffs to aid you, Such as regen health, Find secret areas, etc
- Bright cartoony tongue in cheek humor game
- Simple controls and gameplay
- Has an Insane mode which is like a new game plus, With stronger enemies and more loot, The true challenge starts here
- Arena mode lets you fight it out against AI or against other players both online and offline in an arena gladiator-style setting
- Volleyball mode is a nice addition where you erm play volleyball and attacking the ball launches it over the net. Great fun with a few friends
- The campaign is laid out in a world map formation allowing you to revisit areas or move onto the next
- Meaty campaign content with over 6+ hours worth depending on skill
- They sponsored Breast Cancer Awareness and released a pink knight as DLC with most of the money going to the charity
Castle Crashers Review Cons:
- Boss battles can get very cheap and annoying fast, Especially low level and going solo
- Solo is no different from the co-op, Still the same amount of enemies making solo harder
- Lining up your attacks can be frustrating especially when you can hit them but they can hit you
- Once you max your player stats you still rank up but only to make life easier on insane mode
- Once you have cleared the campaign once, Nothing is different in the layout of levels making it in some cases boring especially solo.

- Fun Factor - 10/1010/10
In summary, it is a great game that is best enjoyed in co-op. It’s not to say solo is a no-go, It’s just going to be a longer ride and more frustrating experience. I still highly rate this game just for its simple yet addictive approach.
