Fairytale Fights Review
Review copy provided by the publisher
Fairy tales are lovely stories that have a happy ending… or so we all thought. They can consist of giants, gnomes, wolves, goblins, enchantments, and many other imaginative creations. What you probably did not know was that fairy tales can also mean just about any far fetched story. And this game, was very, very far fetched.
Fairytale Fights is about four fairytale characters, some which we’re all familiar with, like Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and Jack (Beanstalk Ja
The stages were extraordinary. It was everything that I would expect to see in a fairy tale. Everything was entwined, as you made your way from forests, to castles, and back into nature. The slight blurry effects in certain scenes made
I thought bulls only had a thing for the color red. Now I understand how they feel. When it comes to fighting in that game, the lovely fairy tale creatures aren’t so friendly anymore. Sure the poor bunnies keep getting sodomized with knives for some reason in the game…but you’ll see what I mean when you play it. It’s just endless bloodshed. Once you punch, push, or stab someone with a weapon, blood will just start pouring out of your enemies. We’re not talking about a little pint of blood, we’re talking about gallons of blood all over the floor which you can continuously slide on, degrading your enemies even further. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Killing an enemy with a soft pillow was something I always thought about. Suffocating, no, how about just bashing them over the head with it until it stops the blood from flowing. It was hard to do, but yet it was fun to watch them go down with shame. There are over 160 weapons in the game, from
One major setback I found when reviewing the game were the controls. I am not saying the controls themselves were bad, just the way it was handled in the game were horrid at times. Sometimes I was saying to myself, “No don’t attack him, attack that guy with the gun” or “If I knock a guy off a cliff, why do I have to fall off the cliff as well?”. One certain slip of the finger and it could lead you to your doom or the loss of a great weapon, you can’t get them back if you drop it somewhere you can’t get to. I died over 35 times in one stage because I realized the camera angles sometimes did not work in my favor, and the A.I. were douches to say the least.
Besides the downer of the controls, there were many other things to look up to. The co-op mode was fantastic. The game was begging me to play with three other people. More people equals more bloodshed, even between ourselves. You could choose to turn friendly fire off, but I rather push my partner off a ledge “accidentally” and laugh at them when they revive. Speaking of reviving, there are no life limits; you could keep dying as much
Overall this game was fun to play. If you enjoy endless bloodshed and not being afraid to die, the slicing and dicing, and of course, fairy tales, this game is perfect for you. I prefer the sliding on my enemies’ blood, but that’s just me. This is at most the most adulterated version of a fairy tale I have ever seen in my life, so far. I hope Playlogic is thinking of telling us another story in the not so distant future.
