Castle Crashers! Woot!

We discovered this game at PAX, and my roommate just bought it yesterday on XBox Live. Castle Crashers is amazing.

At first glance, it's just a normal sidescrolling beat-'em-up. Actually, at first glance it's frickin' adorable. Your characters are these cute little guys in adorable flat-topped little helmets. Everything in this game is tiny and cartoony and cute, even the big baddies.

So, yeah, sidescrolling beat-'em-up. Castle Crashers also has great graphics, amazing controls, and tons of re-playability. Although re-playability assumes that you can put down your controller in the first place - this game is addictive.

It's also really easy to pick up and start playing. I almost never play video games, especially beat-'em-ups, and I got sucked right into this one. It helps that it's so damn cute, but the controls are so good and easy to figure out that I just kept on going. I think my little green poison-power guy is already at level 7.

If you've got an XBox, go on XBox live and pick this game up. It's well worth the fifteen bucks.

P.S. Did I mention that the soundtrack is really great, too?
