BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a good Fighting game but if the arenas and gameplay had more depth, the game could be categorized as a really great fighting game. Tag system is so much fun and combos are amazing, but in other hand story and story telling are awful. In the End i must say that if you are fan of fighting games and don't care so much about story-telling, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a good choice for you to play with its fun gameplay and amazing combos.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is not a bad game; It's fast, fluid and entertaining. But in the end, enjoying it depends on players' taste. If this is your first time trying a fighting game or you don't want complex mechanics, then you will have a lot of fun. But if you prefer technical controls and the same amount of content and quality that was available in the past BlazBlue titles, you will be utterly disappointed.

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.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is a fun casual fighting game with an excellent network code, bright characters and nice effects, which suffers from a boring plot, lack of arcade mode, so-so graphics and a small number of heroes from the presented universes.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle is an awesome entry to the anime fighter and crossover genre and ambitiously bring together four beloved franchises. It holds its own as being unique and fun to master, but it suffers from a more desirable story mode and unfortunate DLC model. On the other hand, it is beautifully animated, and the crossover has appealed to me enough to want to check out the source material for all the franchises. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle was able to captivate me successfully; if you enjoy fighting games and are a fan of any of these titles, then this is a game you certainly want to give a swing.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will fill a gap on the Nintendo Switch catalogue for those looking for 2D fighting games with an anime aesthetic and it's a very welcome return of the BlazBlue series to a Nintendo platform. The game's biggest strengths are its gameplay, which may be simple but it's involving enough to keep the players focused on their fights, as well as its very appreciated online system. Despite the game's exaggerated use of downloadable contents, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is an added value to any fighting fan's collection.

Overall, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is a good fighting game. It’s not great however which is a shame considering there’s actually a fair amount of competition on the Switch these days. I found the story mode to be fairly poor unless you’re really invested in the characters and my rough experience online did notch it down for me. Still, there’s a decent, approachable fighting game here with a nice tutorial for newbies. It looks outstanding and sounds great too, so it does have plenty going for it but it’s probably not going to be a top tier fighting game for fans of the genre especially because of the simplified nature of it.

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.

There is no arcade mode here, which only means that this will likely get an improved version later down the road with it included.

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.
