PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review | VideoGamer.com

For all of SuperBot's noble efforts in creating an accessible yet technical fighter, you can't play PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale without ever feeling like something crucial is deeply lacking. The weak roster and poor presentation actively works against the title, and while there's enjoyment to be found this is a game that's highly unlikely to stick in your mind or, more vitally, ever be asked for at parties. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3) 6/10

i feel like he spent half the review complaining about how it's advertisement for upcomign games (MGS:R, Bioshock (does that even have Big daddy?) DmC).

IDK I don't have an issue with who's in the game, just who's not. I'll admit, the main arcade did seem a bit flat even with the ending boss (actually found that t be the msot disappointing about the game).

Otherwise for me it's def an 8.

i agree, i would give it a 8.

edit: below, they will probably add them as dlc later.

That's a problem imo. Like Sony has so many damn characters. Why on earth would the chose some of the characters they did? Why a big daddy, Raiden or even the new dante? Why both Coles? I think they missed an opportunity to dig into a war chest of mascots. It would have given the game more personality, and I could definitely feel that it needed more of that while I was playing.

lol a 6/10? Wtf, okay mate, hope you enjoyed your rant; perhaps write another review WHEN YOU'VE PLAYED IT! :P

Are you talking to me?
Pozzle  +   1099d ago
I get why Raiden, Big Daddy and Cole are in the games since they're practically Sony staples at this point...but I do agree that the addition of new-Dante seems like nothing more than a promotional tool for DmC. Because regardless of whether you like or hate new-Dante, there's no denying that he isn't as memorable or iconic as the old-Dante. Heck, new-Dante only appears in one game (not counting All-Stars) and it isn't even out yet!

I actually agree with this review and what he is complaining about. Too reliant on 3rd party characters and to make matters worst, those 3rd party characters don't define the playstations golden ages from the ps1/ps2 era. My thoughts are exactly what he said, its just a big advertisement for upcoming 3rd party games. When you really look at it, this game is not fan service for us PlayStation owners who supported Sony since the ps1 days...
I personally don't think superbot put enough effort into this. Allstars could easily have at least 40+ with first and 3rd party combined which is why I'm very disappointed with the 20 characters in the final game.

Weak roosters? Dafuq? "

Dante instead of Crash is a no weak rooster? Weak roster, and bland gameplay. Honestly they have really missed a great opportunity here for put a better characthers.

big ouch.

such a crappy score.
glad i did not pre-order this garbage

It's a better fighter mechanically then Smash Bros is. It's just some of the roster choices and a general feeling of sterility that hold it back. If I had a PS3, I would still buy it, based on my experience with it.
krazykombatant  +   1099d ago
How can it possible be a better fighter than Smash Bros???? You can't even get people out of the map you gotta grind the fight out to use your "special" to kick them out! What a joke.
Chuk5  +   1099d ago
It's more mechanically nuanced. I love smash bros, but it's pretty simplistic in comparison. I still prefer smash bros when all is said and done.
TheEnigma313  +   1099d ago
You probably don't even have a ps3.
moegooner88  +   1099d ago
So it is safe to say we won't see you commenting in any of the 8 and 9 scored reviews
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1099d ago
So this is the end all be all score for you lol?
despair  +   1099d ago
I couldn't read past the first 2 paragraphs, this guy just wants to hate on the game because of the 3rd party characters. His asinine commentary has nothing to do with the game and if the only REAL point I got from 2 full paragraphs in a review is that "there are not enough first party characters" and a whole lotta moronic venting, then I put as much stock in this review as the minute and a half it took me to write this comment.

why reviews are dead to me: reason #3(a) ranting most of the review while not actually giving much useful information about the game under review.

Weak Roster? If i recall the original Smash only had something like 12 characters mainly containing Nintendo 1st party games.

For a first game in what i believe is many more to come the roster that is within PSAS is very solid that has the ability to expand with DLC. Just cause you think that characters that does not entirely make you think Playstation like Big Daddy does not mean you do not use them if they are offered to you.

This review i understand is the person's own opinion but it felt like nit-picking to me.
CalvinKlein  +   1099d ago
smash brothers came out like 15 years ago bro, and yet it still had more interesting levels, and cool weapon pickups. ohhh and ALL those characters were nintendo's on the original smash brothers.

I keep hearing sony fanboys say not to compare this to SB, yet you wnat to compare it to a game that came out 15 years ago to try and prove its worth. The fact that it cant even live up to the first smah brothers that came out on N64 says it all.
izumo_lee  +   1099d ago
All games get their start from somewhere & yes they do need to prove their worth, cause if they don't we will probably get trash all the time.

I like to think that PSAS should not get a free pass & that it should earn the respect & $$$ from players just like SSB earned that respect.

So what if some of us prefer games on Sony platforms, or so what if some of us prefer games on Nintendo or Microsoft. I like to think that the majority of us are 'Gamers' first and formost.

*also of course SSB had only Nintendo characters cause back than Nintendo's relationship with 3rd party were rocky. Why do you think they are trying so hard to gain that trust back with the Wii U?
