Very fun and addictive game. The bad parts are some lacks in with the auto-saving and multiplayer system, make that game only playable in Solo or with true friends. Or with that group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Insane_Castle

Game is very good, played it back when it was first released on xbox360 days, and also, it runs very well with no lag, don't know why people with the negative reviews are complaining, but the online multiplayer does take a while to connect with someone, and even when it does, it cuts out, probably internet connection, but do play with a controller instead of using a keyboard for castle crashers. Also there are some bugs to the game, but it's barely noticable to see it anyways.
Ps- This is my very first review to do.

A nice beat'em up. It's awfully good to let out frustration.
However careful, because the NG+ is also awfully good to make you frustrated.

Loved this game on xbox 360 and the steam version does not disappoint. Once you get past the 2-D fight style you will recognize what a gem this game is to play.

Long story short, fun game, but wouldn't pay full price. It does install in like 30 seconds though, which is pretty cool.

This game is well worth the 15 dollars. This is the best beat em' up I've played ever. There are many different characters with different abilities and weapons, and each time you beat the game with a character, you unlock a new one. This is one of the best games I've bought on steam.

This gmae is a fun game. This game is best when playing with outher people but playing it alone is good to. The levels in the game are very good and the boses are always fun to fight against. I personaly really like the music in this game.Also the end is really funny.

Absolutely amazing game. It has great gameplay with some amount of crude humor causing a overall more casual atmosphere, perfect for a couch co-op session. Some have called the combat repetitive and stale, but in my opinion, with great co-op games becoming rarer and rarer to find, sometimes a simple hack n' slash with some friends is really all you need. The game can get tedious in a journey to grind to 99 and obtaining all collectables, but coming back to the game every once in a while allows the enjoyment of this magnificent title to be stretched out as long as possible. One of the best co-op games out there.

sidenote. Friends not included.
