Dragon's Crown Review [Plus XP]

Leon from Plus XP writes "When I was growing up, the side-scrolling beat-em-up was a pretty standard thing in gaming. I grew up with games like Golden Axe and Knights of the Round, while others I know played Streets of Rage and Battletoads. The arcades were full of them, too – including Dungeons & Dragons, X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Simpsons. However, recent years have seen a decline in the genre as consoles have moved heavily toward 3D graphics, with only the odd digital re-release and rare gems like Castle Crashers bringing anything to the genre." (Dragon's Crown, PS Vita, PS3) 78/100
