Fairytale Fights
Fairytale Fights Demo to Drop Today, RRP Slashed
Written Friday, December 04, 2009 By Dan Webb

Playlogic just sent word that a demo for their recently released Fairytale Fights title would hit Xbox Live sometime today.

The demo is set to feature a "90 second countdown timer, offering players the chance to experience firsthand the blood stained mayhem and visceral thrill of carving up enemies with a range of weaponry and glory attacks!" Surely they can't mean a 90 second demo? Looks like we'll find out later.

Playlogic also noted that they were slashing the RRP of the title just in time for the holidays in both North America and Europe. No word in the press release regarding the new price, but cheaper is always better, right? Whether it'll be worth that new price, well, you'll have to check out our review to find that out.

Heyyy, finally a demo for it :)

The reviews did not sound too encouraging for the game, but a demo will at least allow me to try it firsthand...

Now if only AC2 did the same...

I always thought this game was a joke, then I saw it at the store. Will give the demo a try, but not interested in buying.

Great, but where the hell is the patch?!?! The game is crippled, with at least three achievements being unattainable, and others are glitchy as hell, almost to the point of being random.

I know that I am in the minority, but I loved the game... but they need to patch it now.

It takes longer to download than it does to play? Not even worth it.

slashing the price only a month after a release is great for those who don't have the game....but there a couple of us who may have paid full retail.

Early adopters should be given more than just the free DLC that anyone could sign up for.

I got the game when it was first released for $20 (had some dough left from Gamestop's trade-in special). It's a fun hack n slash for those who like or love hack n slash. Very glitchy, but still fun. Throw in some fun platforming segments and loads of blood and gore and it makes for enjoyable time. I can see people wanting it to be cheaper though.

Bought this 3 weeks ago for £18 because the wife thought it looked like a fun game we could enjoy together.
It's not even been unwrapped yet.

I was really looking forward to this game when I first heard of it in the Summer - but when I got my hands on it at the Eurogamer Expo I was very disappointed by it.

No wonder the price has been slashed. To be honest I wouldn't pay anything over 20 quid.

This game is the disappointment of the year for me. It could have been a lot of fun, bloody mayhem with a lot of humor, but it's terrible. I wouldn't play the game unless Playlogic paid me . . . if then.

That might be the poorest excuse for a demo I've ever played. An actual level or part of one would be nice instead of just randomly hacking and slashing for 90 seconds.
