It's hard for me to place this game into a genre. Parts tower defense, strategy, RPG and action. This game strives to achieve a hefty goal. I can say it achieve that goal on many levels. Despite the story and what some may consider short campaign mode, this game offers plenty. There are many modes to it, the art style is very eye catching and the humor kept me in. I loved that you could upgrade magic, projectiles, soldier types and the castle itself (It isn't "CastleStorm" for nothing). The balancing one has to do to achieve their own gameplay style is unique with the castle building. I won't go into detail, but it is a nice and fresh take on it.
*If I could make any improvements, longer campaign, more variety in soldiers or at least a 3rd faction.
All in all, I found this game a wonderful time had. Glad I purchased it. I needed a fix like this that I didn't know I wanted.
** They may have added some in the DLC for the game, which is very cheap and probably worth it, but I had not purchased it as of this review, I wanted to review what I had played.
