Fairy tales have been lying to us all. Popular myth and folklore would have us believe that Red Riding Hood or Sleeping Beauty were pure and innocent, when in fact FairyTale Fights proves they were murderous and borderline psychotic. It starts auspiciously; the Naked Emperor and Jack (of the Beanstalk variety), along with their friends above, are dismayed that their fame has diminished in favour of a new fairy tale star, and go on a journey to kick some arse in the hope of regaining their status as fairy tale legends and heroes of the people.

What this roughly entails is several levels of hackandslash action which fall half way between the comical stance of Grabbed by the Ghoulies and the side-scrolling action of Sega classic Golden Axe, all wrapped in a healthy dose of satire straight from the Shrek school of design. There's a certain level of sadistic charm to it all, seeing Sleeping Beauty beat her way through hordes of sinister axe men using a (surprisingly dangerous) carrot as a weapon.

The combat system feels a little unsophisticated - it uses the right analogue stick to direct attacks, but lacks precision or finesse as a result. It allows players to execute interesting-looking attacks, but at the same time is more than a little distancing from the action. The variety of enemies is quite broad, covering a fair range of the standard Fairy Tale cliches, and there are occasional bosses including the giant from Jack & The Beanstalk and the Big Bad Wolf.

You can take the game online for up to four player co-op, but unfortunately in the few days spent with this game so far I've only found two others online, and was unable to connect with either of them.

I quite liked this game, however its really only a single player. As there are hardly ever anybody online on the multiplayer aspect.

The single player is pretty simple, you travel through some really beautiful worlds hacking ans slashing everybody in your path. That's about it too, there are no difficult mechanics to the game, there are no special moves, just slash.

Is it worth it? well, if you can pick it up for next to nothing, or really cheap then maybe. However its more of a weekend rental during the summer really.

By Ashtree TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Jan. 2010
It's a fun idea. Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Jack or the Naked Emperor, setting out through fairytale-land, slashing, clubbing and shooting everything that gets in their way - and leaving a copious trail of blood (which they can skate through for a burst of extra speed during combat.)

I really didn't like this game, but that might be down to personal taste. I've no doubt that other people will love it for *precisely* some of the reasons that I don't.

The game is driven by the unreal engine, but I bet you've never seen it used in this way before. The fairytale world is done in such bright vivid colours that the game should probably carry a 'headache' warning! I really disliked the chunky style of animation (all the figures are slightly reminiscent of the characters from Lego games).

And I have to admit that the combat system drove me crazy, and is the reason I didn't bother to finish the game. Attacks are all done by wagging the Left analogue stick - I found it quirky (not in a good way) and it made it impossible to have the type of precise control you'd probably like in battle.

The combat system and simplistic level design meant that I lost interest before I finished the game (this is very rare for me - I normally slog on to the bitter end, even when I hate games. But this just got TOO repetitive and tedious.)

The bottom line, for me, was that it felt a bit like a game designed for pre-schoolers and young kids, with massacre and gore tacked on, to make it a 'grownup' game.

Didn't work for me. Sorry.

But... YOU might love it! Even more so than most games, I'd recommend trying a demo of this before buying. Or wait a bit. I predict a major price drop, or VERY cheap copies appearing 2nd hand.

As soon as I saw the front cover I was interested in Fairytale Fights. Classic fairy tale characters covered with blood and huge weapons? Their fame thrown from them? Really angry characters wanting nothing but revenge? Sounds like fun, I bought this not expecting much as games that are like these usually aren't very playable.

However I have to say I really enjoyed Fairytale Fights. My brother and I had a great time playing these and could not stop laughing at the badly tasted jokes and the pure violence (nothing beats walks through a Candy Castle killing Gingerbread Men shouting "FIGHT!" while chopping off the legs of a few innocent children who just happen to be in the right place at the wrong time). The gameplay though repetative is fun and easy to understand. While short, the game's levels espeically the Candy Castle are long and can take some time to finish and have lots of treasures and hidden items to find with lots of enemies and traps to keep you occupied.

Though a good game it really does have a lot of flaws and some being quite major. One is the player's death. There are a lot of hazards that you can easily die from and due to controls being quite flimsly at times you can get frustrated trying to cross a pool of cooking oil while jumping from platform to platform. Plus when you die you can get killed immediately once revived leading to you losing nearly all of the riches you have collected in the level so far. The battle system hasn't been properly designed with some combos being hard to pull off with the analog stick control such as the air combo.

Though it does have its flaws, Fairytale Fights is a fun game and with the prices its selling at right now it is value for its money. Though it won't appear to everyone I would recommend it to anyone who just wants a fun game or a good laugh. Fairytale Fights wasn't designed to be taken seriously, so it really shouldn't be viewed that way.
