The stories we once heard as children, are what PlayLogic has offered us through Fairytale fights...with violence, sarcasm and , sometimes, even humor, as it tries to put us the shoes of Little Red Riding Hood, the Naked Emperor, Snow White or Jack as you work through the land of Taleville while trying to restore your name to fame. How? - By doing all sorts of pointless, violent things, like killing anyone or everything that stands in your way.
With cartoon violence much like the type you'd see in Happy Tree Friends, the buckets of blood are just about everything there is to like about the game.
The combat itself is no splendor to behold anyway. Random button mashing usually gets the enemy or enemies dead faster than using any specific combo move.
What's even more frustrating is that
ranged enemies have the advantage to hit you over and over again, leaving you without any time to advance and attack. You'll probably die this way more often than you'd think.
The art and visuals are good, but not impressive and when the camera zooms in on a character and you get a good look at the character design, you see how uninspired and bland it really is. Some levels even look copy-pasted with small changes here and there, and aside from a few puzzle-type segments, the game bores you to death in no time.
Many boss fights may seem entertaining in the beginning but they suffer from the same illness that drags the game down: being too repetitive. It almost seems like the bosses were designed to outstand 1000 hits or something.
A major problem at this point is the camera being set too far and the complementary blood splatters aren't that much help either. And since blood is omnipresent, "enjoying" the game is relatively difficult.
The fact the game has an Arena mode with co-op in the story mode does not bring much hype back to the fighting. No new elements are brought, just straight-forward trashing and cartoony-blood spills.
Over-all, the copy-pasted bits and boring game-play make for a poorly designed game and if you'd have anything to do with your money, don't spend it on Fairytale Fights...that is if you're not a huge fan of mindless cartoon violence.
