Beaucoup trop répétitif !

Foul play est un beat'em all 2D à scrolling horizontal très classique qui se joue finalement avec seulement 6 boutons: Coup Faible, Coup puissant, Saut, Esquive, Parade et Spécial. Le problème c'est qu'on en vient très vite à toujours faire la même chose encore et encore à toujours spammer les deux boutons d'attaque le plus vite possible, mais là où est le vrai problème c'est sans aucun doute au niveau du bestiaire. TOUT les ennemies du jeux sont identiques, le skin change mais ils ont excatement les meme coup avec les même mouvements de ce fait à peine arriver à la moitié du jeux on s'ennuit déjà car on trouve le jeux trop ennuyeux à cause de cette répétitivité beaucoup trop lourde.

La seule chose qui rattrape le jeux du naufrage c'est son humour et son univers qui certes sont vraiment pas mal, l'idée que ce beat'em all ne soit qu'une pièce de théatre et fort sympathique mais c'est au final la seule chose de bien que propose ce titre et pour 14.99€ ça fait chère la blague.

What you have stumbled upon, Gentlemen, is a most nefarious plot of chivalry and woe, fit only for a stage whose grandeur and acoustics are rivaled only by the spectacle that will unfold within it. Speaking of spectacles, your monocle'd mainstay, Baron Dashforth, will awe you with athleticism, respire you with reveries, jaunt you with jocoseness...well you must understand by now, chap. The ballast of the Act teeters precariously, as unfathomable daemons, a clumsy custodian, and ghastly ghouls will relentlessly chase the utter annihilation of the prodigious protaginist. Procure yourself this gentleman's guide. If not for yourself, my languorous lad, then for the feeble scamp in the front row!

If this game was a spoon, it would be a good spoon.

My my, glad I got this - a very funny platformer.

If you have previously played Castle Crasher, this game is similar but more action-oriented.

So what, we control a character that's supposed to perform a... foul play. While we're performing our play on the stages, we move forward, beating enemies and pleasing our audiences with good performance.

The campaign is divided into five acts, each acts have five levels, each levels is approx ten-fifteen minutes long, a bit longer if you're into boss battles. The objective is simple, you just need to beat each enemy waves with style - be it by performing chain combos to fill and maintain the meter gauge (audiences' mood). Don't let it get too low or the curtain will close and game over. A bit lacking aspect, though, is that the campaign is incredibly linear - you have no option to do anything else and can only follow the direction the game wishes you to. You can, however, replay earlier stages from main menu to achieve higher scores.

The combat mechanic is very simple, chaining normal and powerful attacks while deflecting the enemies or throw them against each others. And this what differentiates from Castle Crasher, it offers more lively battles and flexible ala Devil May Cry DMC but in 2D. By chaining you'll be increasing your scores and earns stars that'll be calculated at the end of each level. As you progress, you'll unlock more abilities/perks to use in game. Use these to... chain more enemies. Heh.

And of course, playing coop is much more fun than alone. It's hilarious, really, to have a messed up battle on the stages.

Graphic wise I'm incredibly amused. It really is that great - suitable for this game - colorful and innately bunch sense of humor drawn into the art and character designs. Special effects don't distract you from the battles and carefully blend with the stages, movement and attack animations are not sluggish and feel natural. FPS throughout the level is stable enough even during chaotic battle. Some minus points though, there are no deep customizations like AA or refresh rate and some commonly supported resolutions are not supported. But overall, I'd say the job well done.

And lastly, controller support is great - and I expect it so much because this is a platformer. I wouldn't even give the game a damn great review if it had poor support, but this Foul Play is just apt at adapting controller support. Dinput and Xinput are both supported, moreover each buttons can be customized in game. No complaints from me on this aspect really.

Funny thing is, metacritic user score gives this 69/100. Don't listen - it deserves more. A recommended game from me.
