NZ Gamer reports:
''Being a long-time fan of classic brawlers like Streets of Rage, Double Dragon, and Guardian Heroes, I've been looking forward to Castle Crashers for quite a while now. And if you're also a fan of the aforementioned games (well done!), you'll no doubt be interested in hearing whether it's worth going gaga over.
Let me put it this way: this is the game you've been waiting for.
Castle Crashers updates the side-scrolling beat 'em up genre while retaining what made it so awesome, and adds generous dollops of humour, originality, and sheer fun into the mix. It's not perfect, but it's a shining example of multiplayer mayhem that will keep you and your mates entertained for hours.''
