It's ridiculously fun! From the gameplay alone with the environment in the game you have tons of hours of bashing through enemies with an array of weapons. Play with friends to multiply the fun!

Castle Crashers is a great sidescrolling beat em up with top notch, hand crafted visuals and hilarious bosses and gameplay. Tons of pop culture references, ridiculous weapons and lots of multiplayer options as well as a decently lengthy campaign make this a great beat-em-up to play by yourself or with friends.

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.

I had this game on Xbox for the longest time and when i transfered over to pc i loved it just as much. It was a bit confusing for me at first because the weapon selection format is a little different. Overall it is just as fun, would recomend.

Its a Beat'em up mixed with an RPG. With Sandwichs and even Hidden Characters. Some are unlocked through playing the game, and others are unlocked by buying other games made by Behemoth. ( a.k.a Battle Block Theater.) If you're in the mood to kick butt, shoot arrows, eat sandwichs, and kill stuff. This game is for you!



And I just realized that I also described another game on Steam... Thats free.... And is a Hat Simulator....
