Review: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale | PSNation.org

PSNation:

My best advice is to ignore your preconceived notions based on the obvious initial similarities to the ‘Smash Bros’ series and what you may have played in the beta. I seriously considered having someone else do the review for PSASBR, but I’m glad I didn’t, because it’s a fantastic game that not only exudes a deep love for the history of the PlayStation platform, but also brings a deep fighting system while still being very accessible to everyone else. Give it a try, you may be surprised like I was. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3) A/A+

i agree, it has its own identity and it should be seen that way. ;)

"Visually, it is definitely similar in the fact that playfields are arena’s that (mostly) exist in a single screen environment. Thematically, the game consists of characters and levels from the consoles past, present, and future franchises, and you have four fighters in the matches at the same time. That’s really where the similarities end though."

There you have it. For all the haters out there who label it a clone, do your research next time. For a studio's first outing with this type of game, they've done a fine job. I'd like to see where they take the series after this, just like I enjoyed seeing Smash Bros grow. Remember Smash wasn't truly amazing until Melee.

So it's a shame people can't get past their pre-conceived notions about All-Stars and use all sorts of excuses to justify why it's not good, when in fact it's very good. 8/10 territory.
