" At heart, Foul Play is a solid, combo-based brawler. While the game may seem “easy” given that you cannot die, getting the top rating on each act will likely require a lot of practice and replays. Visually, it is a treat, and the humour running through the game is key too. The game is looking to create the idea of an evening’s entertainment on stage, and in turn creates several hours of entertainment for the player. "
