Critic Reviews for Foul Play
Foul Play is a novel idea which takes an age old mechanic and twists into something new and unique, and its great theatre aesthetic and witty humour are both enjoyable to behold. However, repetitive combat plagued by difficulty spikes, and constant saving issues, left a slightly sour taste in the mouth.
If this was released in the 90s, it would be a superb addition to the stack of truly memorable arcade titles. Today, though? Compared to titles like Castle Crashers, it comes up a little short. The design and aesthetics are fantastic, but ultimately, they alone can't carry the title. The repetitive nature of the combat, the low level of difficulty and lack of extra features or unlockables to expand the lifespan make this one just average.
