As a platformer with beat-em-up tendencies, Battleblock Theater is a rousing good time, alone or accompanied, and it weaves a charming tale throughout every challenge. It's a shame that the campaign doesn't support more than two players, but even so, the game is much less about cooperation and much more about thrashing your friends. In that regard, Battleblock Theater excels.
BattleBlock Theater is a fine little game, and though it has charm and pizazz, it also comes of feeling a bit of a sideshow, just something to pull out on a rainy day for a fast fifteen to buy a new head, play a quick match, or toy around with a level idea. You’ll get your mileage, and scratch that itch to run, jump, and punch with wild abandon, which for fifteen bucks is A-OK.
Castle Crashers was truly amazing for me, but this, this feels like more of the same, which I suppose isn’t necessarily a bad thing. That said, this game is one of the best titles available on XBLA right now, and for a mere 1200 MS points, Battleblock Theater offers a huge amount of content. With an extensive single player campaign, hundreds of items to collect, numerous multiplayer modes, and community created-uploaded levels, BattleBlock Theater gives you a lot of bang for your buck making this pretty much a no brainer purchase.
