Where’s the PlayStation All-Stars Review?

IGN - Tuesday, the wait is over. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale arrives in North America, and you get to tear it apart – to climb the leaderboards as your favorite character and leave the competition broken in your path. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Review scores are really meaningless to me, I loved the beta so I dont need to wait for reviews to get my copy tomorrow
Godchild1020  +   1102d ago
Same. 9 O'clock in the morning I'll be at the store and then off to work as usual.
blitz0623  +   1102d ago
I got a shipment confirmation already but I have to wait til 7pm tomorrow to play it cause of work :(

As for IGN's review... Don't really care what they give it, but I expect somewhere between 80-85. The impressions of most websites on the Beta didn't sound so good though, and if the final product is similar to it, the reviews won't look good. Won't matter to me though, as I thoroughly enjoyed the beta.

Sorry godchild, i'm going to have to let you go.

But it's all good, you'll have more time for your gaming:)

Pre-ordered mine:)

Screw the review I just want the game... And this website isn't giving me the game so why waste my time on it cause I want it now!
b_one  +   1101d ago
in Poland we have this game on shelves for a few days now :)
Godmars290  +   1102d ago
Yeah, but when they hit, good or bad, that's when the flamewars start.

Kind of odd Ign's asking a question they themselves could answer.

What's really damn suspicious - and I'm saying this as a PS3 "supporter" - is that they're holding special event and *then* seem to be putting up their review. Really can't see them saying its a bad game under those conditions.

Well, it is IGN... they are bipolar at times.

Can't wait to get my copy tomorrow.
Godchild1020  +   1102d ago
They told Omar (The development from SuperBot) that they did a good job, so they have nothing to worry about. That was on the live stream last week.

I thought the review was coming first then the special event where they play online with others.

***" Really can't see them saying its a bad game under those conditions."***

No conditions required. Anyone that has played the beta (with an open mind and not comparing it to smash) should know that the game is solid and by no means "bad." I'd give the beta an 8/10 myself and that's just with one game mode and 6 characters. The final version can only be better. I expect around 7.5-8.5 from IGN(I'm leaning toward 8.5).
Hanso  +   1102d ago
same for me
also CROSSBUY !!
cpayne93  +   1102d ago
Came here to say the same thing. I had so much fun playing online with friends in that beta, I'm getting that game even if ign gives it a 1.
jakmckratos  +   1102d ago
you do realize IGN is going to give this game a decent score right? THey LOVED it and did a live stream with the game director. I bet you the only thing they find wrong with it is the shallowness of the single player arcade mode. But it's SO addictive and there's even more awesome characters now. I expect at leas a 9 from IGN
pixelsword  +   1101d ago

...IGN is double-minded, as well as double-crossing; I don't trust their reviews good or bad.
siavm  +   1101d ago
Most games don't get betas and some games don't get early demos, so reviews do have a purpose. If something got a 1 out of 10 you would not want it.
SilentNegotiator  +   1101d ago
IGN's pre-review articles are meaningless to me.

It's even already up:

Gamer1982  +   1101d ago
Like with other games most reviewers are expecting smash brothers and thats why the low scores.
Blastoise  +   1102d ago
It's so awesome they can't stop playing it long enough to write the review :P
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1102d ago
Awwwww yeahhhhh!

This game is gonna be awesome.
Lord_Sloth  +   1102d ago
Blastoise beat me to it. XXXD
majiebeast  +   1102d ago
No review is gonna sway me from buying it played the beta know its good even with 6 chars.
Relientk77  +   1102d ago
Can't wait to kick some @ss with Nathan Drake, Ratchet & Clank, Cole, Sir Dan, and more
Miguelitons  +   1102d ago
The game will be awesome, already pre-ordered the PS3 version with the cross buy version for my PS Vita, can't wait to play it!
Hanso  +   1102d ago
Yup will be fun :)
ForgottenProphecy  +   1102d ago
I only watch reviews because they get me hype for a game.
Y_5150  +   1102d ago
Yeah right after I watched the first review of the game inFAMOUS. I was running towards that car!
terrorofdeath  +   1102d ago
Ign gives an 8 "that's too low"
Ign gives a 9.5 "reviewer was paid, game is not that good"
Ign gives a 9.0 "Thumbs up :D"
KingOptimusAscend111  +   1102d ago
Knowing IGN they will give it 7/10.
PersonaCat  +   1102d ago
There was an open beta not to long ago. If that didn't convince you whether or not you want this game, I don't really know what will.
Kingthrash360  +   1102d ago
Ign's will give it a 8.0 on ps3
Then will give a 5.5 to vitas version, just like they did SFxT.
They're reviewers lost my respect... Love the site tho
Omar91  +   1102d ago
I think this game will get better reviews then what people expect. Ign for sure will give it at least a 8.5. they loved the game. as for other sites like gamespot? I'm not sure. Maybe a 6.5-7? Either way Im going in between my break from classes to pick this up, buy some angry orchards and have some fun!
BigDollarZoe954  +   1102d ago
Ordered In the PSN Waiting on 12:01pm saving myself a trip love the digital download make things much easier
Smokingunz  +   1102d ago
This fake wanna be smash bros! This game is so wack! I hated the beta! The game is terrible. Unbalanced characters, dumb level design, stupid gameplay and the characters are too small.
garos82  +   1102d ago

Do we really need IGN to constantly publish "Where is the _____ review?" articles about every game, now? They've been doing a lot of these.
pixelsword  +   1101d ago
That's because they're stupid; they could use that same article to make a "Here's the first _______ review".
saimcheeda  +   1101d ago
PS3 games hardly get reviews anyway
Even for multiplatform games its the xbox 360 reviews that come first!
TristanV1  +   1101d ago
review embargo till NOV/20
psvitamanfan  +   1101d ago
