    A great meshing of different types of gameplay styles that I love.

    Double Cross is great when it’s all about platforming, but the detective sections and the combat make it much less enjoyable. A sequel with some adjustments and a more appealing art style could be fantastic.

    I had a great time with Double Cross. Its wonderfully done combat and visuals, along with the creativity behind its multitude of worlds, all come to fruition in what is genuinely a fresh, exciting game.

    Double Cross is almost great. With all the different ways to use the proton slinger in this game, I definitely had a blast progressing through the levels. Unfortunately, the investigation and combat sections make for such dull interruptions that at least a third of your time spent as an agent of R.I.F.T. will be a forgettable slog.

    Double Cross could be a great game. The ideas are fantastic, but it's riddled with missed chances. The levels are good, but there should be more. The gameplay is good, but it lacks depth and challenge. In the end the game is good, but nothing more.

    Had Double Cross opted to focus more on its strength--fun physics platforming--and de-emphasized things like combat and the tedious mystery-solving element, the game would have been an easy recommendation. But the weak parts of the package drag down the whole, and Double Cross winds up feeling like it's a somewhat undercooked mash of ideas.

    Double Cross ultimately plays things too safe to its own determent with mechanics that can be found, and are done better, elsewhere.

Another good game that may get tanked because of critic reviews. I really like this game. I like the bright and festive artstyle, I like the characters and I love the swinging/slinging mechanic. The combat is as you would expect from a 2D platformer focused on platforming. It reminds me of Shantae in that respect. Punch, kick, take out the bad guy. You have some extra moves you can acquire as you play. The mystery aspect of the game is unique—it makes you engage in the story apart from just watching a cut scene. It looks great on my Switch in portable mode and the levels are nice and bite sized. My only gripe, which I have become accustomed to, is that there is a small delay in moving the character when I move my left joycon stick. It may just be my joycon is old, I cannot say. But, it is not an issue, I simply got used to it. In short, this is a fun game and worth playing if you are into Shantae. Enjoy! Expand
