Castlestorm II 

 

Here we are in the busy time of the year and Castlestorm II came into Family Friendly Gaming. We were given a digital download code for Castlestorm II on the Xbox One. This downloadable only video game is also available on the Nintendo Switch, PC and PS4. I played a lot of Castlestorm back in the day. I had a lot of fun playing that game and enjoying what it brought to the industry. I was a bit shocked when I started to play Castlestorm II.

What shocked me about Castlestorm II? The gameplay has changed drastically in some regards. We now play a city builder to amass our strength. Then when we get into battles it is the 2D side scrolling battles. So the battle elements stayed the same. Zen Studios added some content and gameplay I was not expecting. It actually makes sense and I appreciate Castlestorm II all the more for it. It just shocked me at first.

I found the controls are a bit harder to get used to than the first game. Castlestorm II does let us turn the blood off which is a fantastic option for families. I love it when video games include modes and options that allow us to play them in a more family friendly nature and setting. There is still violence, language, lack of attire, enticement to lust, and some humorous content that may offend some families. We also deal with the undead in Castlestorm II.

We can play Castlestorm II in campaign or arcade. Castlestorm II allows for single player or local multiplayer. We can play both sides of the campaign in Castlestorm II. Meaning we can be the hero and/or the villain to see the story from both sides. We can choose to play as the heroes or commanders in Castlestorm II. I loved getting to summon the heroes in Castlestorm II since they are so powerful. There is friendly fire in Castlestorm II.

When I think about sequels I want the franchise to grow and expand. Castlestorm II does just that. Castlestorm II adds a lot of new things and features that will please Castlestorm fanboys. Expect some things that were not in the first game. Hopefully you will react positively like I did. Castlestorm II is 3.19 gigs in term of memory size. It was a pleasure for me to play and review Castlestorm II on the Xbox One.
