The tale of Ubisoft's Battle Tag has to be one of the strangest/dumbest stories to accompany any blaster release since I've been blogging about toy blasters. Launched to a very confused audience initially at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in 2010, initially released in a few stores mainly in Canada but as far as the US goes only in Texas; then a rather quiet full release that died in the butt within months to the point Ubisoft seemed to stop supporting it and even removed the official forum to discuss the line.
It's a real shame because to be honest, it's bloody brilliant. In fact, I'd go so far as to say Battle Tag is the Kurt Cobain of the laser tag world; young, brilliant but troubled, so much to offer and well before its time before it was taken away prematurely. And straight off the bat I'll say it's THIS close to toppling the Phoenix LTX's as my fav. home laser tag system. WHOAH! Gather round younglings and read on as I tell you why...:)
