Castle Crashers is a 2D side-scrolling, old-school, hack-and-slash game...and it...is...FUN! After playing the Xbox 360 version with my brother SO many times, the Steam version is no different. Your goal, playing as one of many knights of various classes, is to rescue the 4 princess whom have been kidnapped by a tiny evil sorcerer! This game by no means takes itself seriously and THAT is what makes this game FUN to play, more so than any other 2D game, including Mario Bros, I've ever played! From fighting a gigantic catfish, to being chased by a GINORMUS troll, to a vengeful armored cyclops who gives you a thumbs-up, to a feinting constipated owl, to an alien UFO (actually, it's kind of boring...or not), to fighting a dragon who's got a SOCK PUPPET on his tail, this game is full of unexpected twists that will make you want to come back and play more! It's clear Behemoth Studios put content first and everything else second because grinding to level-up should NEVER be the only reason to play a hack-and-slash game. But wait! It gets even better! You can play up to 4-PLAYERS co-op, multiplayer, whatever! Plus there's challenges so an All-You Can EAT buffet, arena fighting, vs. mode, mano-el-mano duels, Steam achievements, customizable controls, and the ability to use your Xbox 360 controller as a GAMEPAD (though mouse and keyboard are fine too, ya know)! There are TONS of characters to choose from and each one has their own unique magic ability. You'll be spending HOURS upon HOURS just to level up each one, but fortunately there are ways in the game to make them level up faster with Animal Orbs, weapons, collecting money, fighting enemies and bosses, or finding hidden items scattered around the various landscapes. This game has everything you want and TONS more with 2 DLC packs that are only $1.00 each (WORTH BUYING)! My ONLY VERY MINOR COMPLAINT I have with this game is that, even when you're playing with a mouse and keyboard on the Steam version, the button prompts use the Xbox 360 interface instead, which confused the heck out of me at first and I had to go to the control options just see which buttons did what. Also, the graphics may be a bit like they were drawn by a 12-year old, but DO NOT let the 2D animations fool you. This game's humor and charm REALLY compensates for that and it's what EVERY 2D game should have in this day and age of "serious" gaming whether 2D or 3D. 2D games are making a comback and I am proud to say that this game is one of those games that takes a stand to say "2D gaming is dead? YEAH RIGHT!"
