IGN - IGN PlayStation and IGN Nintendo get together to compare and contrast the two brawlers. And their conclusion may surprise you.
why not have both? mario is awesome and so is kratos!
There can only be one! - Highlander 1986
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?
Sammy112 http://www.giantbomb.com/po... 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
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.
Play the game and you'll see it's very different. This game requires strategy. Plus the online is flawless.
Lol you think SSB doesn't require strategy?
They require a different kind of strategy then smash bros, they do feel different.
I've only played the Beta on my Vita. It seems great, but it just could never be as good as Brawl.
...is like comparing granny smith apples to delicious reds. both are good, everyone has their preference.
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.
Both are good in my opinion. Its good that both Nintendo and PlayStation have something like this.
Just waiting on MS version now. Oh wait, Halo came out already. Sorry carry on. Lol...just playing guys.
Both are good games brawl just feels more in depth to me the all stars like I said though both are good
Lets be honest here. No matter what Superbot did or does in the future it will NEVER be as good as SSB.I mean people are giving it lower scores because it doesn't have the characters they want? SSB was missing several characters that I thought it needed as opposed to others? Because the background attacks don't hurt enough? I don't remember background attack harming you to any huge extent in SSB. Because the weapons don't FEEL right for some reason? What does that even mean? What did they expect it to feel like? Because the story doesn't have enough depth? What was so deep about SSB stories? Because you get lost in a scuffle? When I played SSB in a scuffle I found myself punching air several times when I was either not close enough or facing the wrong direction.Because it's weird to see violent characters hitting cute ones? So what was Ganon,Snake and Samus shooting and punching Pikachu, Kirby and Jigglypuffy? I mean are there different rules when reviewing Sony games or something?
IGN and Destructoid are the only ones who I've seen thus far review the game on it's own merits, and Kudos to both of them. The majority of the industry needs to revaluate their reviews and do them over if you ask me, because they're not reviews but a compare and contrast report of Allstars and SSB. The game is a 7 / 10 at it's worst, and 8.9 / 10 at it's best.
Well I don't know how to explain it but its more natural looking to see Gannon fight pikachu than it is to see kratos beat on parappa. The zelda universe does have tingle and some goofiness afterall.
I like the fact they said its as complex as street fighter.
