Bright, brilliant colors are to be seen everywhere, the stones and pigments undimmed by the passage of decades. The floor of the corridor is a colorful mosaic of stone, with a distinct, winding path of red tiles about 2' wide.

Okay, I have heard some good things about both games. If you had to choose one to purchase, which one would you buy? Incidentally, neither is an option, but you gotta say why.

For 2P, I prefered the Castle. Why? Don't know, really. If I had to say, um, well, I don't know. Maybe it's just that I learned it first?

I enjoyed the City, though, and that of course does more than 2P. If you play more than 2 a lot, I'd go for the City. If you will play 2P most often, I'd go for the Castle.

I hope that helps, but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't......

Get the City.
Castle is...well a term that I can't use as there are children that use this site.

I pawned my copy of The Castle off to a friend. He isn't my friend anymore. Because of the game. No, seriously. He stopped talking to me because the game was that bad. Just don't do it.

The City wins, hands down. The gameplay is deeper and, IMHO, a much more fun game. The Castle sucks.
