All-in-all, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle delivers an excellent fighting-game experience whether you’re a fan of the four series included or just looking for a new 2D fighter to beat your kid brother. It doesn’t revolutionize the genre, and it’s unlikely to appeal to those who aren’t fans of the fist, but the story and characters are engaging enough to make me wonder how I missed out on Under Night: In-Birth and want to go learn more about those guys.
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.
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.
