    Wondering which i should get with my 1200 points, any suggestions.
    i cant split myself between castle crashers which  seems like it would be fun.
    and with toy soldiers , i tried the demo and it was pretty fun.
    and then perfect dark , i had goldeneye and liked it so im woundering if it would be just as good.

    Castle Crashers is the most original experience of the three. Its humor and art style is really fresh. I'd go with that.
     
    Perfect Dark feels really aged. Which is alright if you're into that sort of thing. 
     
    No word on Toy Soldiers.

    Castle Crashers! Then you can add me and play with me! 
    The game is pretty long. Havn't finished it yet.
     
    If you're into Tower Defense type stuff, toy soldiers is good. 
     
    As for Perfect Dark, i liked goldeneye too, but i don't think this really does it for me. It just doesn't feel the same.

    Perfect Dark gets my vote. The game still feels so awesome, I actually think I like these controls better than the originals.

    Castle crashers has a great art style and personality and its a blast with four people so that gets my vote.
     Toy soldiers is good if you like tower defense games and 1920s music 
     Perfect Dark is still a fun game even if it hasn't aged like a fine wine.

    Castle Crashers, I played that game trough 15+ times. Most of  it was to unlock the characters, but still fun and great to bring friends in and play it. Controls are simple so you can pull anyone in.

    I really enjoyed both Castle Crashers and Perfect Dark, both have tons of content but I would highly recommend them in a multiplayer capacity. Both games are good on your own and pretty challenging to boot, but with 3 other people is really where it's at. PD is only 800 points, mind you I'd still have to flip a coin.

    Perfect Dark. I played the demo of Castle Crashers and failed to see what all the fuss was about. Just seemed like a really dull, generic 2D game. I felt the same way about Alien Hominid, though. I just felt like there wasn't really any depth to the games.
     
    I don't know much about Toy Soldiers. I skipped over a review on IGN but forgot what it said.
     
    Regardless, Perfect Dark is a legendary game. It may be a bit older now, but you did like Goldeneye, so if you can adjust to the fact that the game is aged, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Castle Crashers. I love Goldeneye and at first I really liked Perfect Dark (I never played it back in the day) but it's way too open and easy to get lost. It get's very frustrating.

    Toy Soldiers is just about the best Tower Defence game I have played. It's also very high on my list of favourite Live Arcade games. It really is that good.
     
    Castle Crashers I played a little of and didn't care for. I have no opinion on Perfect Dark.

    I love Toy Soldiers.  Perfect Dark is fun, but there's something about it that doesn't sit right with me.  I've only played the demo of Castle Crashers and I didn't really like it.  Toy Soldiers gets my vote.

    Of the three I've only played Castle Crashers, and it's an enjoyable experience, though it's gets somewhat monotone near the end. You should also only buy it if you have someone to play it with. 
     
    Toy Soldiers looks like a really cool game.

    I personally loved Perfect Dark on the N64 and didn't even hesitate to buy it when it appeared on the marketplace.  Has brought back a lot of good memories and has a surprisingly good multiplayer mode with a TON of options.  That would be my recommendation although each to their own.

    Perfect Dark as it's better for value and only 800MSP. And a great FPS.

    I love Castle Crashers. I played through it multiple times with my girlfriend and my roommate. It's probably the only game that me, my roommate (who mostly plays shooters and action RPGs), and my girlfriend (who barely plays anything) all love and enjoy and can play over and over again. It has online play, but it really shines as a couch game. Anyone can pickup a controller and play alongside you, for 10 minutes or 3 hours.

    If you have friends to play with, Castle Crashers.

    Castle Crashers.  As others have said it becomes exponentially better with local multiplayer co-op.  I must admit my experience with the other two choices is lacking, but I had a blast with Castle Crashers for months.

    I think it's clear that the time is right to crash some castles.

    Be sure to play the demos before you decide on anything. I'd recommend Toy Soldiers, 'cuz I had a blast with the demo. Perfect Dark is - meh - just an upgraded port of the N64 version. And I haven't tried Castle Crashers, but I've heard good things. 
     
    Toy Soldiers was a blast though.

    I can't give opinions about the other two, but Castle Crashers is a fun time IF you have people to play it with.  If not, I'd recommend something else.
     
    And, as always, judge the games for yourself through playing the demos.
