Excellent platforming action elevates Double Cross, but weak combat and a half-baked mystery-solving element keep it from reaching great heights.
Double Cross is an up and down ride, but I can’t shake the feeling that there’s another dimension out there.
Definitely not the best game, but definitely not the worst, at least you wouldn't wind up being doubly cross after playing this.
With some better combat choices and animation this could have been a revolutionary release from 13AM Games, but even without that lofty goal it's a definite safe buy for anyone wanting a great new platformer.
Double Cross is a pretty good platformer with an interesting story and stage mechanics, but the game itself feels a tad too easy and short.
While the ending was predictable early on, the journey to get there was captivating and fun, and the various unlockable abilities will surely make each players experience a unique one.
Double Cross suffers from underwhelming combat and bland levels but makes up for it with a good story and fun platforming.
Double Cross on the Nintendo Switch is a game that tries to check too many boxes. It gets the job done on some instances, namely when it proposes an action and platforming experience, but it ends up becoming too dull and lacklustre when it comes to its combat and detective components. While some gameplay mechanics are well implemented, others turn out to be too stale and performance issues don't help to the overall experience.

As it is, though, there's too much in Double Cross that either bores or frustrates for the quality moments to be worth struggling towards.
Double Cross for PC and Nintendo Switch feels quite unoriginal and bland despite coming from the team that gave us the excellent Runbow.
