A fun experience from the creators of Alien Hominid and those who later made Battleblock Theatre, and the upcoming Pit People. This is a great beat 'em up, with minigame updates coming as of recently, showing there is care for this game to this day, and the multiplayer experience is fun, although you are likely to come into contact with some who may have cheated for their levels.

One of the best beat em up games ever known
pros;
Amazing combat system
decent cartoony Characters
Humor
Really fun to play with friends
Not bad to play alone
funny adventure
satisfying sounds
has an insane mode for hardcore players
leaderboards to beat in online mode
If you have friends most of the cons i have stated are nothing for you to worry about

cons:
Not many people on multiplayer
Constantly reminds you the you lack friends
Constatly reminds you that you have no girlfriend
The enemies can be ♥♥♥♥♥ in the casual mode i can't get a hit off this ♥♥♥♥er and im still trying
The skill trees are not very good in fact the game starts reducing the amount of skill points once you are above a certain level its terrible.
the bosses can be hard sometimes because you forget you can use a shield
i have been trying to hit this ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ for weeks and i still have got a nick of him just a tap is fine just GIMME A HIT AND STOP THROWING ME!!!!!!!!!!

Castle Crashers® is a 2D Beat 'em up set in a medieval fantasy world.

You're a... Let's be honest, we're not here for the story, we're all here for a glorious pilgrim full of enemies, princess’s kisses, pvp, playable characters, pets, weapons, magic, archery, evil wizards, dark humour, cool easter eggs and a great time with friends. If you're looking for all or a single one of those, this is a game you have to play.

Such a great beat'em up game. My first game on Steam and this really was worth the $15 paid (I know, I'm an idiot for not buying during 'SALES'). Extremely recommended, especially since the HD update a while back has made the experience more breathtaking!

Gameplay is pretty fun (specially with friends) and it's also pretty diverse!
_
story...well these kind of games don't need a very complicated story ... "just go save our princesses" will do just fine!
_
graphics are cool , very colorful , no bug (!) , wont make my eyes tired ...(didnt expect more from a indie game)
_
musics are absolutly awesome imo , specially when you're in the map or near the blacksmith (some super funny musics)
_
so... yeah... go get it... trust me you wont regret it :)

Imma tell a story. So my cousin, brother and I we're goofing around on the Xbox then my cousin said while browsing the xbox store said this game looks cool lets try it! We bought it downloaded it and launched it. I was the Blue Knight my brother was the orange, and my cousin was the red. we got to lava world then me and my brother had to go. My brother and I pleaded our father to buy it too. We ended up convincing him, so we all three of us played it til wedding crash then my bro had to go. and me and my father got to Full Moon, then I had to go to my mom's. the next weekend I went to my dad's I convinced my little sister (5 at the time) To play castle crashers. And since then me and her played it soooooo much. then came when my brother got back into it, me and him were fire and ice like before, but im lvl 58 and hes lvl 61 we both played to the final boss, turned out we were overleveled and it was too easy so we went to insane mode to die to the barbarian boss multiple times. He gave up on it, so I continued to play it alot with my sister. she now has lvl 70 posion knight and rn on the xbox cc im 98 ice knight. 3 Years later I got steam, and played it alot. And when I figured out Castle Crashers was on steam I freaked out. I've played it alot ever since, and still play it. This is my favorite childhood game 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000/10 I need friends to play this with that have skype please. XD :3

Game is great fun with a group of friends. Cartoony, casual, and somewhat challenging at times, Castle Crashers is a good purchase for its price. Recommended

This game was A LOT of fun. But sadly when trying to catch a multiplayer session online, there doesn't seem to be too many people playing. It's a great game for a local get together party if you wanna have some fun with a group. Solo it's fun, but it's just not as amusing. I'd give it an 8/10
