Excerpt: Xbox LIVE arcade games are usually short quirky affairs that focus on one or two features and provide around five hours of entertainment. But then there are games like Castle Crashers that just overflow with content and keep you busy for hours without end.
Excerpt: Ultimate Fighting Championship. A fighting institution that by acronym alone brings to mind the brutal fighting that takes place between two trained fighters, fists and feet flying in quick succession with the one strike being the difference between the victor and the loser. Submissions. Throws. Pinning the opponent to the mat.
Conclusion: Despite the best efforts of Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom it only manages to feel mediocre. In fairness, there is nothing technically wrong with the game and it will be brilliant for younger kids to play, as it is still quite a charming experience. The problem is that it just feels like a mash up of things we have seen and done before (I have a detailed list) and there is nothing in the game that struck me as innovative.
Conclusion: There are some other online modes which are fucking dull and not worth playing after getting the achievements, although there is a special chance to make randoms really angry by going in to ranked "all you can eat" matches and using a turbo controller. Oh, and there is a deer that shits itself. In summary; 11/10. Game of the year. Last year, this year, and next year. And all following years.
Conclusion: heroes and the seemingly endless slots for both your animal buddies and your collected weapons. There are two other modes other than the main adventure mode, one is an arena mode which sends waves after waves of enemies at you, this can be a laugh for a few minutes but you really get more satisfaction from replaying the levels of the main game. The other is a mini-game in which you have to tap X and Y continuously to eat as much food as you can against other competitors.
