Fairytale Fights

Thunderbolt Games
16 January 2010
  • Excerpt: If there’s one thing that isn’t associated with fairytales, it’s the dismembering of limbs. If Little Red Riding Hood had a hacksaw hidden up her sleeve things would have been very different. In an outrageously gruesome affair, Fairytale Fights puts you in a wonderful land of vibrancy and lush colour; most of which is coated in blood. It’s not every day you get to suit up as Jack of The Beanstalk, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood or the Naked Emperor.

Fairytale Fights Review

  • Excerpt: A series of famous fairytale characters were transported to a beautifully animated world, whilst there they came across a variety of evil enemies. Unlike any other fairytales this one saw the characters hell bent on causing as much carnage as possible…..Welcome to the world of " Fairytale Fights " !!!!

Viking: Battle for Asgard

Square-Go
19 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Hack n’ Slash games have been around for several years. Their roots lie in old school legends such as Final Fight and the genius that is Streets of Rage 2. Yet back then it was apparent that it was a linear formula. Move from one side of the pre-set level to the other, fighting thugs and other stereotypes, picking up freshly prepared chicken along the way for health (who cooks these things??).

Fairytale Fights (PS3)

The Review Busters
17 December 2009
  • Conclusion: I was so looking forward to this game being another sleeper title of 2009. It looked promising and the early footage looked good enough to raise a few dozen eye brows. What I want to know from Playlogic is what happened? This title at best should have been a download at higher price (around $30). If you have to buy this game you better make sure to have enough money to drink too because you are going to need it.

Fairytale Fights

Gaming Evolution
6 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Fairytale Fights is a decent game. It is not as great as I thought it was when I saw the demo at E3 back in June. The hacking and slashing is good but repetitive after a while. The game design is also poor in that they repeat levels instead of designing new ones. The camera, shocking as this is, gets in the way of the game and doesn’t help it to be impressive as it can be.

Fairytale Fights

Defunct Games

  • Summary: Fairytale Fights has one of the very best set-ups of any game this year, yet it's marred by repetitive gameplay, annoying combat, levels that go on forever and bosses that stand out for all the wrong reasons. Not only is this game a huge disappointment, but it's also one of the least enjoyable games I've played this year! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Conclusion: This game is fun while it lasts but the constant stream of deaths just makes things more frustrating than entertaining. Throw in a barrel full of glitches and the exact same levels time after time and you will probably have had enough after one playthrough. A rental only and, frankly, the much better Castle Crashers is probably a preferable option.

  • Conclusion: The amount of ice needed for my right thumb after two hours.
  • Pros: Skewing classic fairytales is a great premise.
  • Cons: There is absolutely no depth to the gameplay.

Fairytale heroes as serial killers in farcical bloodbath.

Common Sense Media
13 November 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that, despite the cute appearance of Fairytale Fights' familiar characters, it is not meant for kids. There are buckets of blood in this extremely violent hack 'n' slash platforming game. There's nothing real about the game, but the concept of fairytale characters becoming serial killer-like murderers would probably disturb anyone under the age of 17.
