PlayStation All-Stars Vs. Super Smash Bros.

Escpist: It's no secret that PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale bears more than a passing resemblance to Nintendo's famous brawler with a similarly long-winded title, Super Smash Brothers Melee. Even so, Sony's entry to the genre deserves to be judged independently, and for that, you can read our review right here. But while the merits and flaws of PlayStation All-Stars are its own, there's no question that some of the most curious about this title are going to be SSB players. After all, it's been over four years since they've seen a new title, and over ten you go back to Melee, the last to bolster the cult following for which the series is famous. Many of those players are a pretty serious bunch, and with PlayStation All-Stars positioning to be the first direct "competitor" on the market (albeit for a completely different system), it leaves one simple question on people's minds: If I liked Super Smash Brothers, will I like PlayStation All-Stars? (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Super Smash Bros., Wii)

Hopefully it won't be as bad as the mw3 vs bf3 articles that came flooding in by the billions.

Simply loving the characters a game has is, I don't think, reason enough to choose one game over the other.

I've enjoyed many fighter games without even knowing who the fuck the people fighting in those games were.

PSASBR doesn't even come close...

In what way? Or is that an opinion based on no experience, like so many people around here do?

Edit: Not as deep? The fighting mechanic is FAR deeper in PSAS than SSB. The variation in levels and how they evolve is on par, if not better, and the roster is as varied and large enough to be comparable.

And this IS the first game; SSB's first entry wasn't NEARLY as robust.

It's just not as deep as Smash Bros. Or varied.

@Hicken,
"The fighting mechanic is FAR deeper in PSAS than SSB."

Hahahaha, this is coming from a person who has admitted to never playing SSB. How do you know PSAS is deeper.

You are the biggest hypocrit to ever grace this site.

That is your opinion but you have to take to account that SSB took 3 games to become the quality game that it is now.

To simply disregard PSAS after just one game is assanine & pointless. So lets see what happens once PSAS also becomes a franchise than the comparison is justified.

deep? there is no strategy in smash bros. Its a good game but its def not deep. Also All stars has online that works.
