Review: BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle (PS4 Retail) (PAL Region)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Interdimensional Tag Battles Ahoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under arcsystemworks on WiiWareWave 900x

Developed by Arc System Works and published by PQube in the PAL region, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is a great game in many ways, but is somewhat marred by an overabundance of paid dlc, is this enough to affect our opinion of the game? Yes, but it's still well worth purchasing and here's why:

The gameplay in Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is pretty standard stuff for the Blazblue series, but with only a couple of notable changes, which honestly isn't a bad thing given how tight Blazblue's gameplay has always been. The combat is fast-paced and has tons of action, while there are a few technical fighters in the roster most characters are easy to learn how to use.

The game focuses on online modes with the only noteworthy single player mode being story mode. The online modes are pretty good and the online servers "at least the European ones" are very active and quite stable so don't expect many disconnections during matches!

As for the gameplay additions to the formula, the  primary addition is the tag system which allows you to not only switch characters on the fly, but also perform cross combination technique between you and your tag partner which is a blast to do and a must to win online battles, other than that most of the changes are mostly to balance the game, however that one major change makes the game so much better than it would otherwise be!

The controls are very responsive and fairly easy to learn which is always a must in the fighter genre while the difficulty is perfect for players of all skill levels! The only gripe we have is that the game reuses a ton of assets from previous Arc System Works fighters, but it's not a game breaker for us.

The audio-visual presentation is fantastic, despite mostly reusing assets from various older games, everything goes together quite well. The character models look great, the stages are gorgeous, and the special effects look amazing as well! The music is fantastic, especially the RWBY season one theme! It's hard to find anything to dislike in the game's presentation.

Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, excellent controls, and an amazing audio-visual presentation, Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle for PS4 is an amazing game that any fan of the fighter genre should enjoy. The only negative is the overabundant dlc, but otherwise the game is flawless as a result we give the game a good to great level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★½☆ 8.5/10

Review: Under Night In-Birth Exe LateST (PS3 Retail)

An Old Fighter Has Been Reborn!

Topics tagged under arcsystemworks on WiiWareWave 900x

Under Night Latest is an enhanced version of Under Night with enhanced gameplay, new characters, and a plethora of new game modes, but is that enough to make the game feel fresh and exciting? We think so and here's why:

The core gameplay modes, practice, arcade, and story are all there though the new chronicles mode is far more detailed and plays out like a mini visual novel which adds a lot of depth to the game's lore and world. There is also a new tutorial mode for new players which can definitely even out the playing field and gives newcomers a chance to quickly improve their skill level in the game!

There are several new characters most of which have a very unique play-style so expect a lot of variety from the new content! The core gameplay is mostly unchanged so old pro's will be able to fight with the best of them right from the get-go! The controls are also quite intuitive though it can take newcomers a short while to get used to the game's unique mechanics, but overall the learning curve  for the controls are definitely better than you usually see from your average fighting game!

Visually the game looks great, just as the original did. There's nothing that'll wow you, but everything looks vibrant and detailed with little to no performance issues which is always a good thing. The sound-track and voice acting is also superb and fits the game like a glove, but as always an English voice option would have been nice.

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, intuitive controls, and a top-notch audio-visual presentation, Under Night In-Birth Exe LateST for the PS3 is a fantastic game that any fans of the fighter genre should enjoy, while the massive amount of new content should make the game a worthwhile investment for players who own the previous version of the game as such we give Under Night In-Birth Exe LateST a good to great level of recommendation!
