    My friends all raved about this game so I decided to humor them and drop 1200 MS points. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. The game doesn't take a very long time to beat, but it has enough...

    Best arcade game I bought yet.

    Castle Crashers is beautiful, hilarious and action packed. It is quite possibly the best download only game ever.

    Rated on May 18, 2012 by EpycWyn

    Castle Crashers did everything right. Music in this game is original and greatly adds to the mood of the game. All of the art and graphics in this game are very cartoony but also well-made. The plot o...
