CastleStorm PS Vita review: a cornucopia of gameplay elements

GameZone
24 March 2014
  • Excerpt: It's hard to describe CastleStorm . I'll start with this: when I look for a game on the PS Vita, I either want one that has some depth but is still a short session title, or I want something that will allow me to play for hours. CastleStorm is a little of both. Zen Studios CastleStorm is a hybrid of tower defense, RPG, strategy, troop management, hack-n-slash, and throws in comedy.

Castlestorm

  • Conclusion: For a company so well known for it’s console-spanning pinball franchise, Castlestorm is as beautiful and precise as any one of their fantastic tables. It’s easy to use mechanics serve to make every skirmish a mix of fun and stress, but it’s the personality of the individual units, and the multitude of options for both offense and defense that really make this diamond shine.

Review: CastleStorm is a polished game that doesn’t know what it wants to be

GameZone
5 July 2013
  • Excerpt: If the genre of “hardcore medieval-inspired arcade action strategy games” exists, CastleStorm , the newest offering from pinball kingpin Zen Studios, falls right in line with it. It’s sort of a tower defense game, but not really. It’s sort of a 2D action game, but not really. And, oddly enough, it’s also very close to Angry Birds in some ways, but again, not really.

CastleStorm (Xbox 360)

ccgr.org
21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: CastleStorm is a fun physics strategy game where your goal is to typically destroy your opponent’s castle with your ballista.  Your ammunition varies from javelins, garbage, chunks of ice, maces, sheep, boars, bombs, laser crystals and more.  Alternatively, you can send your troops and bring their flag to your castle to clinch a victory.  If you’re the kind of person who likes to get their hands dirty, you can momentarily spawn a hero into the fray to crack some skulls.
  • Pros: Fun concept with multiple paths to victory.
  • Cons: Some levels are challenging, but they make you stronger in the long run.

Castlestorm (Xbox 360 Arcade) Review

411mania.com
11 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Castle Storm is, at it's core, a tower defense game. And upon starting the game, I honestly didn't much care for what was taking place on my screen. The Ballista controls were just horrid, and the games humor seemed to be aimed towards a younger crowd, despite the T for Teen rating. I even sent a text to one of the other writers here telling him how bad it all was and that he owed me something for playing this for all of you.

CastleStorm

IGN
3 June 2013
  • Conclusion: CastleStorm draws from a seemingly unmanageable array of inspirations including real-time strategy, tower defense, and Angry Birds, and does so with remarkable virtuosity and humor. Touchy ballista controls may mar the gameplay on occasion, but the charms of CastleStorm 's multiple gameplay modes, varied campaigns and units, and quirky presentation keep the action on track.
  • Pros: Intense strategy, 2 strong campaigns, Fun multiplayer modes
  • Cons: Poor ballista controls, Cramped splitscreen
