Fun diluted by frustration. 0

Mmm. Graphic. Unnecessary caption. There are a scarce number of games today that are capable of substituting for the beat-em-up arcade machines of old. Castle Crashers is one such game. It has been billed by some as the game to fill in that gaping hole of side-scrolling hack-and-slash goodness. In this regard, it is both a resounding success and a debilitating failure.             Combat is obviously the focus of the game. In a word, it is delicious.

Just like the TV show, but neither satisfying nor creative. 0

Lost is the first and only TV show that I currently faithfully follow. I love it. I read about it. I'm interested in anything to do with it. As such, I was skeptical about that game from the start, as any gamer would be of any kind of movie/TV show that is shoehorned into a videogame. I didn't buy it on release, but after reading up on some reviews, I decided to rent it. This was a very good move, and if you are considering playing this game, before you read any further please note that I stron...
