Because BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is an anime fighting experience that allows for constant aggressive offensive and defensive reads, wrapped in accessible execution that makes slightly complex mechanics easy to grasp. If this can add more fresh competition to your world, embrace it.

BlazBlue Cross-Tag Battle is a fantastic fighting game for newbies and veterans alike. Despite some questionable DLC practices and a market saturated with other great fighting game titles, it deserves to be played, practiced and played again.

Nintendo SwitchNintendo Insider (Jun 26, 2018)
All in all, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a great 2D fighter that has plenty of depth with easy to learn mechanics. Believe it or not, the simple five button input system is intuitive enough when using a single Joy-Con for some quick on the go rivalry. The game looks lovely on the portable home console’s small screen too, making those table top matches feel even more like a coin-op experience. Even the net code for online play is outstanding, with a well thought out playground-style lobby system to boot. Just remember that if you are new to fighting games, don’t go in expecting to body the online world. It is just not going to happen. Well, not until you put some work in at least.

Whether playing through the story mode alone or against hardened opponents online, Cross Tag Battle is an absolute joy with a surplus of possibilities within its wide roster and versatile fighting system. Even with all the ridiculousness of the overarching plot, I reveled in the charm of my favorite characters and embraced the many moments of fan service. It's a masterful unification of styles and mechanics from four different universes that compels you to dig deeper and dedicate the time to getting the most out of the beloved members of this cast.

Nintendo SwitchNintendo Life (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is an utterly accomplished 2D fighting game. Bursting with content and featuring the visual spectacle of combat that uses up every single trick in the book while doing so with the possibility of calling up a second character into the fray on demand sets Arc System Works title as the de facto current generation game fighting game to own on the Nintendo Switch. While we certainly appreciate the likes of Capcom and SNK (via HAMSTER) safely releasing previously proven hits of the genre, we were beginning to wonder when companies would notice that Switch is more than able to accommodate current generation titles as well. A few strange decisions aside it is very hard for us not to recommend you make this title a priority among your future acquisitions if you’re a fighting game fan. Even if you're not a fan of any of the franchises represented in this game, you most certainly will be by the time you're done with this stacked fighting package.

Nintendo SwitchThe Loot Gaming (Jul 03, 2018)
As a whole package, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a great experience for both those new to fighting games and to veterans of the trade. The game looks great and runs even better, the music is a collection of the best tracks of prior entries in the franchises represented, and the online runs as smooth as butter. The story mode isn’t some of the best, it’s serviceable at best, and the DLC practices are Capcom level of shadiness. The social aspects of this game are great and it’s easy to see that the online components were the priority, but this also means that primary single player gamers have been left without an arcade mode. When it comes to the fun factor, this is where BlazBlue shines the brightest. Arc System Works has crafted a fighting game that is an absolute joy to play. The game is so fun that I lost track of time way too many times and I definitely recommend this game to everyone who either likes fighting games or has been looking for a title easy to get into.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle might be rough around the edges and have some questionable DLC choices, though it doesn’t stop it from looking great or being fun. The number of tutorials are great, with there being an okay amount for players to do. Sure, it isn’t the most jam packed game Arc System Works has ever released but if you’re looking for a new fighting or just enjoy the series included, odds are you’ll get your moneys worth out of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.

Nintendo SwitchSwitch Era (Jun 05, 2018)
Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is an excellent fighting game that I have been enjoying a lot. Its offline/single player content is lacking, but Arc System Works knock it out of the park where it really matters and deliver an excellent fighting system with great online (I think the fighting system is better than DBFZ). $49.99 for 20-25 characters and then $70 for 40 is a great price. Even if some of the practices are heavily frowned upon and they should've known better. If you are looking for a fighting game on the Switch look no further. Blazblue Cross Tag Battle puts up a fierce fight and will surely please fighting game fans on the Switch.

Nintendo SwitchNintendoWorldReport (Jun 05, 2018)
I ended up really liking BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. The hectic gameplay, cool visuals and robust offline and online experiences make it one of the better fighters out on the Switch right now. It’s easy to get lost if you’re diving headfirst into the series, and to be really good probably takes a lot of practice. But it captures everything that makes tag battle games fun and delivers in one visually striking package.

PlayStation 4PlayStation Lifestyle (Jun 05, 2018)
Chances are, you already know if you’re in Cross Tag’s intended audience. If you’re an avid anime fan, understand fighting games, and know one or more of the included series, you’ll love everything here. Even if you fall into only one or two of these subsets, this may be up your alley. The mechanics are solid, and mostly provide the perfect environment for beginners to transition to the more complex styles introduced in other Arc System Works games. I’d say it’s also just complicated enough to intrigue fighting veterans. Setting aside the DLC-based blemish, the roster is packed with unique, fun-to-play fan-favorite characters. The Episode Mode delights, and successfully hones the panache of all four franchises. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle offers a little of everything for everyone, and does so in splendid fashion.

PlayStation 4God is a Geek (Jun 05, 2018)
If you’re a fan of either of the universes here, this is well worth your time and money. I’m not happy with the pricing when they could’ve just done $60 for everything instead of doing $50 for the base game and $20 for nearly half the roster. Just a $10 reduction in base game price isn’t really worth much in terms of lowering the barrier of entry when fans will want all the characters which ends up costing more than a full priced fighter. Price concerns aside, I’ve enjoyed my near 50 hours spent across both PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Cross Tag Battle over the last few weeks. Since the game launched in Japan last week, online has been active as well.

Nintendo SwitchGaming Age (Jun 25, 2018)
With BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Arc has delivered yet another enjoyable experience which cements them as a premier fighting game developer. The game manages to be simple enough that beginners can enjoy, but supply enough systems to sate veterans of the genre. Unfortunately the Switch is not the hardware where you would get the most out of this title. If you have your eyes set to the road to EVO, perhaps consider picking this title up on the other platforms it is available on. If you are not set on finding FGC fame, then as long as you are willing to invest in a better controller you will find a perfectly acceptable addition to Switch game collection.

Nintendo SwitchNintendo Wire (Jun 05, 2018)
At the end of the day, I’m still satisfied with what I’m getting out of the game. While there are shortcomings in the Episode Mode and some popular characters are DLC to be, the core game has been a treat. It’s been a while since a fighting game has managed to strike a balance between accessibility, style, and pacing, but BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle brings these parts together with no trouble. Add on well animated sprite work and a full, fantastic English dub, and it all crosses over into a game I can’t seem to put down.

All in all, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is an excellent fighting game. Thanks to gorgeous presentation, robust mechanics, and an entertaining story mode, it stands out as one of the better, if not the best fighting game this generation. It might not have the lineage of its competition, but it’s got more than enough to warrant a purchase.

PlayStation 4Common Sense Media (2018)
If there's a downside to the game, it would be the cheesy dialogue and writing. Cross Tag Battle doesn't have much of a story, but what's included is pretty light and somewhat ridiculous. For a game that combines four separate franchises, you'd hope that there'd be a stronger plot that fully used each character in a clever, entertaining way. But most players won't be interested in the story; instead, it's be the action that will keep them coming back. Fortunately, Cross Tag Battle has great-looking graphics, upbeat music, and responsive controls. The game also offers many solo and multiplayer modes, with a surprising amount of content to unravel. Overall, fans of the BlazBlue series or the other Japanese franchises included in this game will love setting their favorite characters against each other in battle.

Por desgracia no todo es bueno y es que en el modo televisor se aprecian más los dientes de sierra y el hecho de que el plantel de personajes haya sido recortado y haya que pasar por caja para conseguirlos todos, seguro que no gustará a la mayoría (aunque también es cierto que el juego sale a precio reducido y su plantel base es bueno), pero más allá de estos detalles estamos ante un título muy recomendable y que sin duda tiene potencial para hacer disfrutar a todo aquel al que le guste los juegos de lucha y esté dispuesto a darle una oportunidad.

El título es muy vistosoa nivel audiovisual.Tanto el diseño de los personajes como los escenarios, que son la mayoría de ellos icónicos de las franquicias que nos ocupan (y que ya hemos visto en juegos previos) tienen un alto nivel de acabado. Las animaciones funcionan de manera fluida y a toda velocidad, con efectos especiales por doquier. Mención especial para las secuencias tipo Astral Heat: espectaculares. El título luce bien en todas las plataformas, incluido Switch donde es cierto que tal vez el trazado en dock no es tan limpio y fino que en PS4, pero que mantiene el tirón perfectamente sobre todo en framerate y fluidez. La banda sonora sigue el mismo camino, con melodías de cada una de las franquicias.

Nintendo SwitchGod is a Geek (Jun 05, 2018)
Overall, the Switch version is fantastic for everything but online play. The lack of anti aliasing is only really noticeable if you play with RWBY and other characters together thanks to the new sprites versus the older ones. I had no performance issues at all. This game runs like a dream in portable and docked modes. I can’t wait to see them bring more fighters to the platform after this. I just hope a patch improves the online and blocks skipping intros to have better sync between players. Arc System Works has a chance to be the defacto fighting game developer for the Switch right now and I hope they add the Switch specific features like Local Wireless soon.

PlayStation 4Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle doesn’t do anything to revolutionize the crossover tag team fighting system, it simply sticks to a formula that has worked before and does a great job with it. The single player experience is enjoyable, though not as robust as we have seen in some other fighters as there is no arcade mode and the Episode mode is more cutscene than gameplay. As one would expect with the genre, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle excels when playing against another person, and that experience is just as enjoyable either on the couch or online. The initial roster of twenty fighters is respectable, but that will eventually grow to forty through DLC. While the single player content alone might not be enough to warrant the purchase, there are countless hours of fun to be had playing against other people.

PlayStation 4Destructoid (Jun 05, 2018)
Yet, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle pretty much speaks to everyone, even if a few of its core mechanics aren't as refined as several of Arc's other works. It has a wide array of cast members from several universes, a pointed 2v2 focus, and a sufficient amount of stuff to do if you aren't the online competitive type. I sincerely hope this sets the stage for more experimental "all-star" types of fighters from Arc, as they have a seemingly limitless well of ideas to draw from.

PlayStation 4WCCFtech (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a fantastic fighting game, marred by what feels like suspicious DLC practice and very familiar assets. If you can see past that though, you're going to massively enjoy this intense and intuitive anime fighter.

PlayStation 4Cultured Vultures (Jul 05, 2018)
We’d like to focus on how deep and intricate the game is, or how much fun it can be learning different characters, but the way Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle handles its DLC and roster can’t be ignored. Take 2 points away if you hate DLC, more if, like me, you hate the fact Enkidu from Under Night isn't included.

PlayStation 4Worth Playing (Jul 23, 2018)
Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle isn't Arc System Works' crowning achievement. The graphics could use some cleaning up, especially on the characters, and the reduction in modes for offline play will hurt those who are used to the series being rich in that area. The fighting is solid both online and offline, and it's easy enough for players of all skill levels to enjoy. It really is the DLC plan that's a big decision point for players. With no timetable about when all of the fighters will be released, the smart move for the more casual set would be to wait until everything is out first and see if the company will release a more complete version later on. Otherwise, if you can't wait, you're in for a solid fighting experience.

PlayStation 4TechRaptor (Jun 23, 2018)
While it doesn't revolutionize fighting games as a whole, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a fun 2D fighter sure to appeal to fans of any of the crossed-over series as well as those who just love a good match.

Nintendo SwitchEveryeye.it (Jul 01, 2018)
Un gioco di combattimento leggero e piacevole, pensato per i neofiti del genere che si avvicinano per la prima volta agli anime fighter. Nonostante l’eccessiva semplificazione gli utenti più smaliziati troveranno comunque abbastanza elementi da approfondire, soprattutto sul fronte delle meccaniche difensive. Si tratta di un piacevole cambio di direzione rispetto al mercato, che tende a valorizzare sempre di più la parte offensiva a discapito della varietà di opzioni in difesa. La grande mobilità generale e l’allungo notevole di alcuni personaggi (in particolar modo di quelli provenienti da UNIEL) trasforma gli incontri in intense battaglie di "poke" dalla lunga distanza, da convertire poi in combo letali grazie anche al contributo degli assist.

PlayStation 4Jeuxvideo.com (Jun 21, 2018)
Malgré un modèle économique un peu étrange et un contenu finalement assez limité, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle est un jeu de combat particulièrement divertissant, grâce à ses mécaniques bien pensées. Le jeu en équipe prend ici tout son sens et l’on a été surpris de voir à quel point le jeu peut se montrer technique, quand bien même il se prend très facilement en mains. Rien d’inoubliable mais de quoi passer de bons moments cet été !

PlayStation 44Players.de (Jun 26, 2018)
Obwohl die Voraussetzungen für BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle eigentlich nicht besser sein könnten, springt der letzte Funke nicht über. Zum Teil liegt es daran, dass das Gesamtpaket es nicht schafft, an das famose DragonBall FighterZ anzuknüpfen, bei dem sich Arc System Works sowohl hinsichtlich des entschlackten sowie sehr eingängigen Kampfsystem als auch der Team-Dynamik freizügig bedient. Doch bereits bei der Story gehen die Probleme los: Hinsichtlich der Inszenierung zu altbacken, wird die eigentlich interessante sowie häufig witzige und neben dem japanischen Original wenigstens auf Englisch verfügbare Geschichte durch die statischen Einblendungen der immergleichen Figuren torpediert. Die übrigen Modi hingegen sind nur kurzzeitig interessant, wobei zumindest die Matchmaking-Probleme der Online-Kämpfe mit zunehmenden Spielerzahlen relativiert werden könnten. Dazu kommt, dass das Artdesign extrem untypisch für Arc System Works einen uneinheitlichen Eindruck hinterlässt (...).

PlayStation 4GameSpew (Jun 20, 2018)
Overall, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a mixed package. While its character roster feels anaemic, its gameplay entertains in all the right ways. The hub in which you find yourself every time you play the game is a bore, but otherwise the game’s audio and visuals are colourful and lively. And while there’s no simple arcade mode, something we’ve come to expect as standard, it does feature enough modes and options to keep you fighting for a long time to come. Ultimately then, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is by no means essential, but if you don’t mind its price tag you’ll have plenty of fun with it.

Nintendo SwitchGearNuke (Jul 09, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is an incredibly fun and varied fighting game with some great combat mechanics. It is the lack of content and a poor character roster for a fighting game crossover that makes it an overall disappointing product.

Nintendo SwitchPocket Gamer UK (Jun 25, 2018)
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle makes up for its lacking content with the kind of ridiculous, fun fighting that only Arc System Works can create.

PlayStation 4Way Too Many Games (Jul 08, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a good fighting game, without a doubt, but I surely expected a lot more from an Arc System Works title. Its excessive focus on DLC and subpar single player modes severely tarnish what could have been a much better fighting alternative for the PS4, especially since its simplified control scheme is a welcoming way to introduce newcomers to the franchises included in this disc. As of now, getting any Guilty Gear game for the PS4 is a much better (and cheaper) option.
70
PlayStation 4Darkstation (Jun 05, 2018)
I’m torn between the amazing gameplay and the lack of content. Fighting feels fantastic but there's too little where to put it to use. What is this alarming trend that fighting games are put out without their traditional content? One can only hope that three non-functioning arcade cabinets standing abandoned in the game’s 3D entrance are a promise of arcade mode coming sometime in the future – as long as it’s not paid DLC. Then again, locking the characters who already show up in the episode mode behind a paywall as future purchases, is absurd so I doubt anything good comes for free. Greedy business model and thin content eat up the game’s appeal. Too bad as the featured gameplay is so damn satisfying.
70
WindowsOPNoobs (OPN) (Jul 18, 2018)
BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is an excellent release for fast-paced fun that incorporates characters from other series. Beside the problem with the ranked lobby on one occasion, the application proved rather stable. Those not interested in the competitiveness of online play can enjoy a somewhat relaxed experience offline (depending on at what difficulty you set the opponents). Fans of the fighting genre, especially those looking for this style of artwork or an exciting and rather funny story, will find what they’re looking for here.

PlayStation 4TheSixthAxis (Jun 20, 2018)
There is an incredible core set of mechanics and gameplay at the heart of Cross Tag Battle. It is fun as hell to play, and addictive and rewarding to try and master. Unfortunately, the package that this gameplay ships in is embarrassingly sparse, especially by Arcsys standards. Offline modes and unlockables are kept to a bare minimum, and the big story mode fails to fully embrace the magic of this bizarre crossover. Worst of all is the shallow and incredibly lopsided character roster. Arcsys has made a habit of releasing updated, 2.0 expansions of every fighting game they make, expanding the selection of modes and characters. In the case of Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, this is a game that feels like it desperately needs one.

PlayStation 4Push Square (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is an incredibly entertaining fighter that hinges on some brilliantly crafted team mechanics, so it's a real shame that the overall product is cloaked in controversy. Accessible yet open-ended and deep, Arc System Works' latest is slick and expressive, but it's the questionable DLC practices that ultimately muddy the waters.

Nintendo SwitchSwitch Player (Jul 28, 2018)
Feature-light and shady DLC practices aside, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle isn’t a particularly bad game, but its lack of content will struggle to keep the attention of fans of the represented series, who may be expecting more.

PlayStation 4GamersHeroes (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle has got the fanservice down, but it feels more like a tribute to Arc System Works’ other games than its own unique beast. Its simplified fighting game mechanics, along with its reused assets, makes it only worth it for the most diehard of fans.

PlayStation 4PlayStation Country (Jun 21, 2018)
Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle is a fun yet ultimately flawed fighting game. It manages to make more complex anime fighters into something more accessible, However the DLC-locked character roster and story mode sour the overall experience.

Nintendo SwitchUSgamer (Jun 05, 2018)
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle has some great ideas, simplifying the mechanics of BlazBlue for newer players and bringing in characters from Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In-Birth, and RWBY. The core of the fighter works well, but the character roster is a bit small until you get into a mess of downloadable content. The additional modes also feel a bit dry and threadbare compared to Arc System Works' past efforts. This crossover is solid, but could use some tightening up as a full package.

„BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle“ ist ein schwieriges Spiel. Das rührt in diesem Fall nicht durch das Gameplay, das einfach viel zu simpel geraten ist, sondern durch den Fakt, für wen der Titel wirklich geeignet ist. Es fehlt an Modi, die Geschichte, der Hauptpunkt des Spiels, ist sehr durchschnittlich, der Online-Modus geplagt von Lags, die Kämpfe sind viel zu schnell zu Ende und die Charaktere auf ein sehr einfaches Konstrukt heruntergebrochen, wodurch sich jeder gleich spielt. Egal ob Fans der einzelnen Reihen, Arc System Works-Anhänger oder komplette Neueinsteiger, jeder wird am Ende das Gefühl nicht los, das hier einfach mehr drin gewesen wäre.
