Fairy tale Fights is a great game with an amusing story line, amazing graphics, & high quality sound effects. There is good music playing lightly in the background throughout the game, & has online and offline multi player features. Although the camera can get annoying, & repetitive fighting is prevalent, this is still a great, fun, amusing title. Read More

Review Just under a year ago I was enjoying one of my favorite Nintendo DS titles of 2008. The unknown and underrated Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ was a simple, yet satisfying arcadey shooter that pitted a shotgun-toting Little Red against swarms of flesh-eaters in twisted fairy tale settings. The gameplay was straightforward run-and-gun stuff, but the dark humor was irresistible, especially to a self-described Disney geek who also happens to possess an insatiable hunger for mowing down undead menaces. So, when I heard about Fairytale Frights, a similar gaming mash-up of storybook fantasies and over-the-top gore, I was intrigued by the potential to once again paint candy-colored environments with the bloody innards of freaky fantasyland inhabitants...A selection of over 100 weapons further complements the fairytale-gone-bad concept. Ranged muskets and slingshots as well as countless melee items, liberally littered throughout the title's 22 chapters, ensure you'll never have to maim, behead, disembowel, or eviscerate the same way twice. Standard swords, knives, chainsaws, and bats serve your blood lust alongside more creative killers such as swordfish skeletons and beavers on spits. Even cooler are the death dealers that really embrace the twisted presentation; there are love potions that temporarily daze enemies, giant jagged edged lollipops, and jawbreaker-spitting guns. Using some of these more inspired weapons yields some great animations, too, like tiny pink hearts spinning above the lovesick potion swallowers, and crumbs flying as you beat a gingerbread man with a candy cane...The lackluster execution could be partially forgiven if Fairytale Fights were an Xbox Live Arcade title. But as a full-priced retail release it feels like a missed opportunity. In fact, Castle Crashers, a title that treads much of the same ground, only much more successfully, can be purchased over XBLA for a fraction of the price. An inspired presentation, some solid dark humor, and an imaginative concept kept me playing Fairytale Fights till I sliced and diced every last cute woodland creature, but its flawed gameplay -- even with the appeal of 4-player online co-op -- keeps it from being much more than something I'd recommend scooping from the bargain bin a few months from now.
