One of the best beat'em up games avaliable. You can join local, online COOP with up to 4 friends and bring destruction upon your enemies. There're lots of unlockable characters, the game is really fun, and has a great replay value. Making it perfect for an ocasional casual night of gameplay with friends.

So , this game is just epic , I have to say , it worth to buy it , I recommend you to play it with some friends .
The story is fun , the gameplay as well , it also has a lot of Boss battles ( and some of them are funny )
And you can unlock a lot of characters , it's not just the 4 Brave Knights , you can play as a Villain , the King , and other Allies. Each character has different magics .

I recommend you to buy this game now , and tell your friends about it !
:D
