Gamesradar-PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale review

GR:Sweet Tooth, Dante, and Sackboy are now co-stars in the same game. Let that bizarre reality sink in for a moment. In PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, Sony and SuperBot Entertainment take a crack at the four-player, item-centric fighting game genre, popularized by Nintendo's Smash Bros. franchise. This mega-crossover incorporates characters from a wide array of PlayStation franchises (you can read the entire roster if you want), ranging from the hotly anticipated (Metal Gear Rising, DmC) to the pleasantly obscure (MediEvil, Ape Escape). But be warned: If you’re expecting a one-to-one facsimile of Smash Bros. with Kratos and Parappa in place of Mario and Fox, you'll be both pleasantly surprised and mildly disappointed. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3) 3.5/5

I don't agree with this review score but oh well not everyone has the same opinion.

I would think "Not everyone has the same opinion" would be impossible to disagree with. I mean, if you do disagree you don't have the same opinion.

Silly N4G...

I don't agree with the score either, btw.

It's the same score they gave Resident evil 6.

Come ooooooon :( that game was a disaster

This game so far ranges from 6/10 to 9/10, reviews are becoming more and more unreliable, hell even Halo got a 5/10. Best thing to do is if you want a game just get it and make your own opinion, to hell with review sites.

I love mixed review, it show that gamer has to decide to play it on his/her own.
360ICE  +   600d ago
True, because if all the reviewers agree, they choose whether or not you can play it for you.

"Damn, I wish I could play Too Human, but the reviewers have decided that I have to play Uncharted 2 instead."

The 9's are mostly from Playstation sites.

No Crash and Spyro in this game is definitely a turn-off.
NastyLeftHook0  +   600d ago
probably dlc later.
Sizzon  +   600d ago

i don't care or even criticise that this is a "rip-off" of super smash bros because i think it's great that playstation owners get to play a game with such a great concept and fun factor. however it's sad to see that they have failed, at least from the previews (an average of 77/100 on metacritic so far). i haven't played it, so i can't really judge it of course. comparing it so super smash bros brawl which got a 93/100 on the same page though it's hard to keep thinking it might actually be somewhat as good as nintendo's equivalent...
also it's a bit disappointing that crash and spyro aren't in the game (so far) as they would fit perfectly in a game like this, especially when a lot of the other character don't fit just as well into this kind of game...
