DLC TLC: Castle Crashers

This is a new monthly article where I spotlight  Downloadable games on the Wii, PS3, or Xbox 360.

This months DLC is Castle Crashers, an extremely entertaining side scroll beat em’ up. I bought Castle Crashers at the request of multiple friends and I must say, I love it. Castle Crashers uses that old school formula of bright colorful characters and funny action that made Battletoads or TMNT games so fun.

Content: Tons! There are many weapons and animal orbs to collect throughout the game and your character leveling up is done by you. Combine this with the fact that there are a whole mess of unlockable characters to max out and you have a game that can last you a while, and that doesn’t even include the two DLCs that gives you more of all of this!

Cost:1200  Microsoft points without the two 160 points DLC to extend the game even further. That’s only 1520 points total, less than $20 U.S. Well worth the cost when you take into account the amount of $50 games that don’t give you merely enough value.

Overall Rating: 10/10. Hands down the best DLG on Xbox it lets you play with up to four players and has replay value with all the different characters. A must buy.
