Больше всего Castle Crashers похожа на игру с картриджа «999 in 1», которую пустили в эфир канала Cartoon Network. Поначалу тут, казалось бы, все нормально. Карикатурные рыцари с неожиданно крупными головами бегают по двухмерным лугам, лупят варваров, практикуют магию и спасают принцесс. Через десяток локаций в игре что-то щелкает, и на поле спускаются гигантские пчелы.

Castle Crashers is a seemingly steep 1200 points ($15) on Xbox Live Arcade and it's one of those games that's a chore to get working with online play, but overall the game's still well worth your cash.

Castle Crashers is a fantastic addition to XBLA, and a must-have for your collection. There are few games on the service that can match the depth here, and those that come close do not offer Live co-op.
Castle Crashers takes such a tradicional genre like the Hack and Slash, and manages to turn it into a fresh and delightful experience thanks to its great sense of humour and lovely treatment. The best part is the steady pace of the action and the possibility of playing it in team mode. It's a fabulous game.
Stretch your fingers and invite three friends if you want to play Castle Crashers, because the game is literally a multiplayer button-bashing frenzy. The gameplay offers not much more than pressing the buttons as quickly as possible, but the humor and the fun of wreaking havoc with three friends makes the game worth the buy.
