BattleBlock Theater Review
30 April 2013
Summary: " Battleblock Theater " unfortunately fails to capture the same spirit and magic of Castle Crashers. The brilliant art style, funny plot and multiplayer focus all remain part of the game, but it feels like some of that ‘special sauce’ is missing to elevate the game amongst the masses.
Excerpt: Developer The Behemoth seen its rise to fame in 2004 with the release of Alien Hominid for PlayStation 2 and Gamecube, and the team followed up the success of that title with the release of Castle Crashers for Xbox LIVE Arcade that has held numerous records for the downloadable platforms since its...
Conclusion: BattleBlock Theater is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Violence, and Crude Humor. While your character can explode into parts, with heads and bones flying everywhere, I didn’t see too much copious amounts of the red stuff.
Conclusion: The cuddly charm of BattleBlock Theater tells only half the story – the game boasts a horde of smartly designed puzzle platforming stages as well as a multiplayer suite goofy enough to raise some pure and honest laughter.

Summary: Never mind about the meticulously plotted cube levels, their platforming quirks, the serviceability and occasionally ingenuity of their puzzles, or their deliciously brief pace of consumption.
Pros: Facilitates competition within cooperation, A concise platforming language, Trademark Behemoth humor, Versatile level editor and multiplayer make for a community-focused game, Tons to unlock
Excerpt: Flight sims belong on the PC, or at least, that’s the general idea for fans of the genre. Still, Gaijin Entertainment has dared to make a console version of the much-praised realistic WW2 flight sim IL-2 Sturmovik.
Excerpt: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey hasn’t gotten a lot of spotlight since it was released, thanks to in part to several big ticket titles that launched around the same period. But don’t let the lower profile fool you, Birds of Prey is an excellent video game and the best flight themed titles on the X-Box...
