PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – Preview [GamingLives]

GamingLives gets hands-on with All-Stars Battle Royale at this year's Gamescom.

"As much as it initially appeared to be a massive Smash Bros. ripoff, my problems with this game are more than skin deep, and I can’t help but feel that maybe PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale would have been any fun to play if it had stolen more from the Nintendo brawler." (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

I have the beta and i disagree with pretty much everything the dude in the article states. I'm actually more of a nintendo fanboy; at least more nintendo than Sony, and I gotta say, after about 24hrs of the beta, it'd become better than smash bros to me. It's not a copy nor a rip off. (Copy would mean it's 'exactly the same'. That's the definition of 'copy'. I'ts not a rip-off either. That would insinuate it's of lesser value.)

I can easily say this game is it's own game and feels like one despite looking like Smash. After playing the beta, I'd realized that it has many MANY more differences than similarities. And no, it's not always clustered. It's VERY fun, and I've come to like the 'Supers'. Before I played the game, I'd HATED the idea of supers. I wanted something smash-eque. But I honestly think I like the idea of Supers better than smash's gameplay. I used to live off smash (literally...) and after playing this, Smash doesn't seem so amazing anymore. And that's after only playing the beta!

Despite being a Nintendo Fanboy, I'd say, in my HONEST opinion, that this game takes the cake. Love it! And it's only in BETA!
