Funny beat-em-up made in theater setting with humorous storyline. It's nice in co-op and pretty interesting in single player.

This game looked really fun. It was recommended because I was playing castle crashers and I love castle crashers. So I was kind of looking forward to playing this game. I played it with my best friend when he came over. We played around the first 2 missions trying to make it as fun as we can with combos and voicing over the characters but we both realized something after the 2nd mission. It was really repetitive. all you really do is go around the screen and punch people around in the same environment. No power ups, lives, extra moves just punching the same people around the same environment for that level. This was a really big disappointment for me. The game play is there it's just I can't recomend it.

Got a ride from a chariot
I ask "Are the villagers ok?"
Chariot stops
I have to go on without it
Villagers attack me
Werewolves attack me
Chariot driver turns into werewolf

All while this cheeky little kid in the audience is cheering me on

Great game that requires a fast reaction time and has same screen co-op on PC which is rare.

This is a great game! The coop is fun and challenging. A steal at the low price. It has a unique Crowd cheering gauge. If it gets too low you lose the level. You need to keep them happy with Combos and action. Hours of fun with my kids as it is child friendly. Only complaint is you can't seem to skip the dialogue between scnece without constantly pressing the A button which can get a bit tiresome.
At this price it's a steal!
