Fairytale Fights

Fairytale Fights is a hack and slash action-adventure game developed and published by Playlogic Entertainment for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Fairytale Fights allow the player a chance to reclaim the fairytale status of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Jack, The Naked Emperor and more.

Fairytale Fights received mainly poor reviews, with a 51% average score on the Xbox 360 format on Metacritic. Some critics were more positive about it, such as Games Master magazine in the UK, which called it "a likeable, if slight, slice of gory Brothers Grimm gaming". However, many sources were considerably more scathing. IT Reviews said that "the dodgy controls combined with some awkward camera viewpoints, plus the overly repetitive levels, slowly sap much of the joy from the experience". GameSpot went further, criticising the game's lack of pacing, lousy boss fights and "shallow, repetitive combat".

A considerable number of glitches marred the Xbox 360 release in particular, leading to less than positive reviews before the much delayed patch was eventually released. Until the game was patched, several achievements were unobtainable and multiplayer was severely affected, something which has now been remedied.

Andy Eddy of Team Xbox also added that Fairytale Fights's "annoyingly bad game design" held it back from being a better game. Eddy went on to say "Sadly, gimmicks arenít strong enough to maintain the game across its entirety."
