A fun, button-mashing romp that never lets up.

A lot of buzz was surrounding this one, so I decided to download the demo and check it out for myself. After loving the Demo, I went ahead and got the full version. Although it is a bit pricey at 1200 Microsoft Points (that's almost roughly $12), I can assure you that it's worth every point and penny. I'm a sucker for button-mashers, and this game does not disappoint. The visualization is stunning and charming in all its cartoony-glory. As violent and crude as it is, what with the blood, gore and excrement being splattered around, the overall charm is never compromised. I also like how you can develop individual characters; in a sense, this game reminds me an awful lot like the Sega Saturn classic Guardian Heroes.
You want to talk about boss battles--Castle Crashers has some of the most exciting and unbelievable boss fights ever seen in any game. Some of them are HUGE--almost taking up the entire screen and never skipping a beat. And, of course, if you tire of the adventure mode, you can test your mettle in Arena and Quaff modes.
Overall, if you're looking for a good button-mashing romp, I strongly recommend this.
