Playstation All Stars Battle Royale Beta Impressions. An emulation of a classic |

Playstation All Stars Battle Royale beta is open for PS Plus members and PS Vita owners. The beta will be open for everybody on October 23rd.

We had the chance to download the beta and play on the PS Vita. I was a little worried because for a game like this, I didn't particularly think playing it on the PS Vita would be so much fun. I'm a huge fan of Super Smash Brothers, I've owned them all and even competed in a tournament or two back in the day. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

I've been getting more excited for this game. Really looking forward to playing it!

Heed my warning

I hope you guys don't think this is a smash rip off. If you do you will be sadly dissapointed. This plays completely 100% unique to smash. I recommend you play it as if playing a completely fresh fighting game franchise.

Once you accept what I said, you will like the game a lot more. Take my advice.

Yeah, having a lot of fun brawling and bashing : ) I've always been a Super Smash fan so there is no way im going to let this slide.

Good to see a Smash fan trying the game! If only other Smash fans had your enthusiasm and not scream RIP OFF for the billionth time :L
Abojooj  +   1205d ago
Well yeah that was my first impression. But I had this useless Vita laying around and i thought, what the heck. For the most part it was pretty amusing. I've added my impressions in this piece if you'd like to know more, enjoy.
Nerdmaster  +   1205d ago
For me, the main problem isn't that it's a rip off (even though it is), but that I don't like any of the characters besides Parappa. If it's so like Smash, why would I spend money to play the same thing but with characters that I don't care?

If there was a Sega Smash Bros, I would pre-order it. But this Sony Smash Bros, I downloaded the beta on my Vita and didn't even bother to play it yet.

Sega smash bro's over playstation all stars? Really? The character roster would just be Sonic and the guy from Shenmue. Give me the all stars characters anyday. Also, you just admitted you haven't even bothered to play it yet, why would you judge a game you haven't played.
It's not just about your favourite characters anyway, with Super Smash Bro's I didn't even know who Marth was before I played that game, and after I played with him I used him all the time.

As for the beta im really enjoying it, I'v been owning with Sly. Got a nice little set of moves going of the ground pound, lightning slide to lightning ball thing and when anyone uses a level 3 super I can turn invisible and hide in the corner lol.

I'm judging the characters. I don't need to play the game to say that I like or I don't like the characters in this game.

On Smash Bros there are some characters I didn't know, but there were ten others that I really liked. On a possible Sega Smash Bros, the characters from All Stars Racing would be enough for me to buy it.

About the game itself, seing gameplay videos and previews and whatnot, everybody says it's almost identical to Smash Bros, so for me to be excited about this game and buy it, the characters would have to draw my attention. But they don't. I will eventually play the beta, of course, but for my brawling needs, I'll keep playing the real Smash Bros.

Haha awesome! Always nice to see a SSB fan giving good impressions on this game, and not ignorantly bashing it. I'm a SSB fan too (well, who isn't?) It's a unique game, and fans have been clamoring for a game like it but with Sony characters, and now we're finally getting it! :D

Please don't be ignorant and be all like "This game doesn't have MY OWN PERSONAL FAVORITE character, therefore, this game sucks and I'm not getting it!!!11!!!1!". Not every game caters to everyone, and not everything you want will be in a game. The way you responded sounded like you're a whiny, inconsiderate brat, who only cares about themself, directly saying "I". I don't like R.O.B, Ice Climbers, New Dante, Phoenix Wright, and other fighters, and would have rather they get someone else, but it didn't stop me from buying MvC3, SSBB, and PSASBR (well, at least the beta).
I like both Playstation and Nintendo characters, so I have no problems if one or two of my favorite characters don't appear. And with this "copy", I get to experience something like Super Smash Bros this year, which takes forever to come out, but are worth it in the end.
Nerdmaster  +   1205d ago
I'm sorry, but that's... really, really stupid. I was stating my own opinion about the characters. How in hell could I do that without saying that "I don't like the characters"?

What I said was completely valid. "It looks like Smash Bros, but I don't like the characters, so I don't think I'll buy it". Simple. Why would that offend you or anybody? You're the one behaving like whiny, inconsiderate brats because somebody doesn't like the same games you like.
AznGaara  +   1205d ago
This game is fun but I wished they would've put more option in. This BETA is equivalent to playing Smash with just the time, which isn't bad, but I always play Smash with stock/lives and wanted to see how this game would play with lives too. Aside from my nitpicking I'm really enjoying this game. The combo system is really fun and the fact that you can only gain super meter by attacking ensures that its a more offensive game.
Abojooj  +   1205d ago
yup Azn, couldn't agree more
youndamie  +   1205d ago
uhh yea the beta, more options will be in the main game
SageDivinity  +   1202d ago
The stock mode has already been confirmed by Superbot, there will be more to come the beta only featured the tutorial and timed modes

Hate it, deleted it within 5 mins

What didn't you like about it?
killasder  +   1205d ago
He didn't like the fact that it's not coming out on the xbox 360 O.o
ronin4life  +   1205d ago
He owns a PS3 or a vita or else he wouldn't.have downloaded it... your comment makes no sense.

Unless you are being sarcastic... or just plain jokey(as your emoticon implies) ^,^;

If video games had feelings, i'm sure Playstation All-stars would hate you too.

5 minutes doesn't even give you enough time for 1 match. Meaning you didn't even give it a fair chance. So either you're one of those "I hate this game it has no monkeys & plumbers". or killasder is right.
Blastoise  +   1205d ago
"I hate this game it has no monkeys & plumbers"

Lol xD

It does have raccoons and clowns though! what more do you want?!

6 characters in the beta, the final game will only have 20 characters, so we already get about 1/3 of the game! why would I spend $60 on this now ...
Zechs34  +   1205d ago
For the same reason I got it from Newegg for $48 for the PS3 and Vita versions combined. It is a fun and frantic game that True PS fans have waited for years to play.

So I've played enough of Halo or CoD or Dust 514 in beta form so I must not need to try the actual games.

You don't like the game? Fine. Don't presume to know that others see it your way.
Nerdmaster  +   1204d ago
It's funny that he never said everyone thinks like him, he was only stating his opinion. You're the one that presumed that because he thinks one way, he's saying that everyone thinks the same way.

In #2.2 that guy whined that I said I don't like the characters by calling me a "whiny, inconsiderate brat, who only cares about yourself".

When someone states an opinion that differs from yours, you may create arguments for why you disagree. But saying "do you really think others think like you?" or "OMG, you only care about what you think!" is stupid.

Me - "I like rain..."
You - "Don't presume everybody likes rain because you do."
GenericNameHere - "Stop being such a spoiled kid who only cares about what you like!"
FunAndGun  +   1205d ago
lol, so if the beta only had 2 playable characters you would be buying it?

that thought pattern is rather broken.

Never seen someone disregard a game because the beta gives you TOO MUCH of the full gaming experience.

Because the beta lasts forever.....
Godchild1020  +   1205d ago
If you played the beta and used 3 or more of the characters, you would know each character has a different play style. You would also know that each stage is different and play to you style in different ways.

I played the beta on my Vita, haven't touched it on my PS3 yet, but I know I enjoyed it completely and can't wait for the full game. I have played with 8 of the characters so far and can't wait to play with the other 12 and play the other modes in the game.

To each their own.
SageDivinity  +   1202d ago
Well than take into account the extra stages, unlockable items, unlockable costumes, unlockable intros and outros, unlockable victory music, more game modes, dlc, and possible patches. Does this help?
imXify  +   1204d ago
It's not bad, I just don't like how weapons are glorified.
SageDivinity  +   1202d ago
You mean the items, or how a marity of the characters utilize a variety of weapons? Im sure items can be turned off in the full game but I can't onfirm that. The fact that the characters use lot of weapons is unavoidable because they those weapons in their respective games, so taking them out would hurt lessen the nostalgia factor on those characters.
