BattleBlock Theater Review: A Simple Game from Creative Developers l Entertainment Fuse

When Castle Crashers was released close to five years ago it spawned a legacy of stellar arcade games that would ultimately capture the hearts (and Microsoft points) of millions of players around the globe. The game’s eye-catching cartoon aesthetics, riotous cooperative play and earnest attempt at recapturing the joys of 2D-beat-em ups culminated in an outstanding and hilarious romp. Cut to half a decade later and eerily scarce marketing, the creative minds of developer The Behemoth are back with BattleBlock Theater – a 2D-platformer alluding to the likes of Super Meat Boy and other greats within the genre. Boasting plenty of fart jokes, tight controls, challenging level design and a plethora of content, BattleBlock Theater is a thoroughly entertaining, albeit a slightly unremarkable platforming opus. (BattleBlock Theater, Xbox 360) 7.8/10
