Comparing PlayStation All-Stars and Super Smash Bros.

IGN - IGN PlayStation and IGN Nintendo get together to compare and contrast the two brawlers. And their conclusion may surprise you.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why not enjoy oth since both are exclusives to their respective consoles so both will have different characters from 1st party and different play style

PASBR is more of a fighting game where SSB is more of a get together party game. But are worth owning and enjoying

So everyone needs to stop freaking out about rip off this and rip off that and enjoy the game. Games like SSB existed before they Nintendo made me so stop acting like they were the first ones to do it

Nice try bud your Sony fanboyism is shown here even if you try to cover it up. Ssb and pasbr are both fighting games don't try and baby Ssb by calling it a together game. I've played both if anything brawl is the much more depth fighting game. And games like Ssb existed before Nintendo? I please tell me about another game where you knock opponents off the screen?

came before SSB there you go

you sound more of a butt hurt nintendo fanboy than anything else. go read ign's review it even says that PASBR is more of a fighting game where SSB is more of a beat em up style game

while PlayStation All-Stars is clearly inspired by what Nintendo has done with its famous brawler, the comparisons end on the periphery. Smash Bros. is its own thing, its own unique take on heavily competitive, fun and accessible multiplayer madness. It totes a well-earned legacy because it’s a phenomenal series.

PlayStation All-Stars, on the other hand, is a bona fide fighting game, and its maiden foray on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita attempts to carve out its own, more technical niche. The game’s developer, SuperBot Entertainment, was specifically created to make this game, and the team – with some help from Sony Santa Monica -- succeeded in making a fun mash-up catered to the legions of PlayStation fans out there

maybe next time do some research before opening your mouth

Very nice man I love being proven wrong, it teaches you something new. although I will say you are really stretching hard if you're going to compare Poy Poy to brawl. Also a fighting game is something like street fighter PASBR is more like brawl then it is street fighter. I'm ok with you saying brawl is a bet Em up game. I but that's not what you said you said it was a together party game. Brawl is a much more in depth fighter then PASBR. So by your words PASBR is a party together game because if you honestly thing that PASBR is more like street fighter then it is brawl then I'm going to have to call you delusional.

Brawl may appeal to everyone but go look at the tournaments. Tell me that the amount of technical skill they show in that game is something an average pick up and player party gamer can do.

They were not asking which one you should buy, they were just comparing them becuse they are almost identicle.

Smash Bros wins for me.

Also am I the only one who wishes Sony had made a serius fighter? something like Mortal Combat, Street Fight or Blaze Blu.

I understand the need to cater to the casuals and little kiddies but I though this was a Playstation fan tribute and all PS1 and PS2 are now passed the legal limit to drink :) so bring on the bloody violence and hardcore graphics.

I hate democratic responeses so much. Why can't someone like one thing more than the other. Everything isn't great.

considering its play stations first attempt. It's really good

NBT911731d ago (Edited 1731d ago )

Yeah, I think that a lot of the points discussed in the IGN video were interesting and I agree with the overall conclusion. The point that Smash has a more recognisable cast thanks to things like Pokemon and Mario which are like so recognisable that people who do not even play games know who they are but that can not be said for Parappa or really any of the PSAS cast.

I think the best thing they could do with it, is just advertise, let people know it exists and then get right to work on a sequel that takes the idea and does what Meleee did for the Smash series. I.E if it is going to be a proper fighting game with PS cast, make it so, with more combos, emphasis on defence and countering etc... Focus on the combat more than the arenas and weapons.
But if it is gong to be an OTT fun pick up and play game like Smash, then make it so because the reviews seem to indicate it is kind of a mix of both at the moment which some people are finding a bit weird.

When you literally copy almost everything your competitor has been doing for years, right down to the menu designs, its really hard to screw up.

eferreira1731d ago

Play the game and you'll see it's very different. This game requires strategy. Plus the online is flawless.

AWBrawler1731d ago

Lol you think SSB doesn't require strategy?

cpayne931730d ago

They require a different kind of strategy then smash bros, they do feel different.

Luke_fon_Fabre1731d ago

I've only played the Beta on my Vita. It seems great, but it just could never be as good as Brawl.

J86blum1731d ago

...is like comparing granny smith apples to delicious reds. both are good, everyone has their preference.

DigitalRaptor1731d ago (Edited 1731d ago )

This is what I mean.

You don't have to compare them, but if you do, you don't need to pick a side. Good job IGN in giving merit where it's due.
