    Quite frankly, this feels like a Flash or Unity game, that someone decided to greenlight as a full console release.

    My gripe in this case is that there’s just so much lost potential with Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers that between it’s brief 6 hour run time, it’s boring gameplay, and it’s seemingly soulless presentation that it’s hard to lend praise to this game.

    Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is the worst type of licensed dreck, soullessly designed with absolutely none of the charm or creativity of the shows it depicts.

    Seriously, though, this budget-priced cash-in should be avoided at all costs, even if you're a die-hard fan of the shows. And parents, please don't ruin your kids' childhood by buying them this piece of trash. Instead, just loudly have sex in the next room over. Trust me, that one leaves a mark.

    I love cartoon network as I have been watching the television channel for quite a long time since when I was a child, so most of its licensedI love cartoon network as I have been watching the television channel for quite a long time since when I was a child, so most of its licensed games are fun for its nostalgic flavor and time honored traditions. It allows me to battle with my other favorite animated characters and shows, and furthermore I can crash into their vehicles and cause mass destruction. It is such a violent interpretation of a kids show and I hope i can dismember their body parts and feed it to the grinder. Expand

    Cartoon Network Battle Crashers
    Repetitive Grind Fest
    Battle crashers is a side scrolling brawler game featuring 6 different cartoon network show worlds and characters. You have Clarence from clarance, Jake and Finn from Adventure Times, Gumball from the amazing world of Gumball, Rigby and mordecai from the regular show, Steven from Steven universe, and finally the cause of all of this Uncle Grandpa from Uncle Grandpa…
    You can play this game with 4 player cop, locally.. Not online... and each of these 6 characters are unlocked as you play the story... 4 of them being unlocked in the tutorial level, the other 2 later on and they all feel unique from each other..
    Some noticeable weaker and frustrating to play as…
    The concept of the game is simple... kill everything on the screen and collect gems to level up your character… much like that ghostbusters game from earlier this year… thankfully this game is better than that game, but it has many of the same issues…
    There’s a large focus on grind here…
    This game consists of 18 levels… 6 of those levels being boss battles that take about 3 minutes to complete… The boss battles feature villains from the shows and are a decent change of a pace from the combat… but is just your basic dodge attacks and hit when they’re vulnerable bosses…
    The other 12 levels take anywhere from 6 to 9 min to complete... so for fun let’s just say on average this game if it were straight forward would take a little under 2 hours to complete…. Considering the type of game this is... multiplayer focused... the fact that there are 4 difficulties to unlock… throw in a dash of story... some satisfying and fun to play through levels and you have yourself a worthwhile game…
    This isn’t what we get though…
    A run through this games campaign is going to take you around 5 hours playing alone…
    Enemies in this game take way too much damage and dealing with waves upon waves gets exhausting after an admittedly enjoyable first hour…
    But nothing changes as you progress… what you see in the first levels is what you see in the other 12 minus a theme and an occasional gimmick like antigravity in one of the levels…
    And to make it worse, this game forces you to replay levels you already completed to get an item to progress… this time with even more enemies to drag the game out… and before the final boss you have to replay 4 of those levels for shards… and before a regular boss you have to replay 2 levels .. Literally almost completely doubling the amount of levels here by forcing repeats... When again there’s plenty potential here on its own to get players to choose to replay levels... 3 extra difficulties that have to be unlocked by beating the level on the difficulties before… an xp system to get us to build on our favorite characters stats and working to unlock even more special moves to maybe alter each character to your own personal playstyle…
    But the developers of this game opted out and chose game length over game quality…
    The grind of having to kill the same enemies that take way to much damage to defeat is ultimately what hurts this game the most.. Even more than the forced replay…
    If you don’t plan on playing couch co cop, there’s no reason to touch this one…
    I give Cartoon Network Battle Crashers
    a 5/10

    It's just as bad as people say it is. Takes about 3 hours to beat, very repetitive and the animations are absolutely disgusting. Very simpleIt's just as bad as people say it is. Takes about 3 hours to beat, very repetitive and the animations are absolutely disgusting. Very simple flash animation with tweaking. The art itself is pretty nice to look at, but that won't help when you're bored to death by the game itself. It has some great franchises mixed together, but this feels more like a 1$ phone game than something you would've played on a console Expand

    The laziest, most pathetic excuse for a console video game I've ever played.
    Cartoon network can do better than this, I hope.

    Lazy put together, terrible story, terrible gameplay, infuriating backtracking. If you want a cartoon network crossover game, play Punch TimeLazy put together, terrible story, terrible gameplay, infuriating backtracking. If you want a cartoon network crossover game, play Punch Time Explosion XL. If you want a current gen cartoon network beat em up, play Ben 10 (2017). This game is worthless. Expand
