BattleBlock Theater coming to PC, beta starts this month

The Behemoth's long-awaited follow-up to Castle Crashers was BattleBlock Theater--a game that our review says "may have bitten off more than it can comfortably chew." Still, the ambitious platformer is large enough that players can "enjoy its likable, zany sensibilities throughout."

BattleBlock Theater review: battles blocked

BattleBlock Theater review: battles blocked
