GP: "When rumors began circulating about a PlayStation-centric mashup fighting game, many became excited. As the rumors were finally announced to be a real thing then the gaming population seemed to split into two camps. There were those happy for a new fighting game featuring their favorite characters and others were quick to call it a Super Smash Bros. (SSB) ripoff.
Although SSB was not the first party or mash-up fighting game, it is certainly the most successful and well-known. In many ways PS All-Stars does follow Nintendo's blueprint but not completely. Does the game manage to be something else noteworthy or is it simply an inferior product?"
