Original Gamer Review - Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Original-Gamer.com: "Following the success of their competition's famous Super Smash Bros franchise, Sony has released Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. Part brawler, part competitive fighter, it's an all-star clash, but is it an all-star title?" (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3) 4.0/10

This is a joke review. But the opinion is respected. How can you question the use of items and say they don't do anything to change the battle. You can use the fish and build your AP faster and send the opponent that is hit across the stage. There is an item that stuns your opponents and another that takes AP from them when hit. The items, when used correctly help sway the fight.

It also sounds like he doesn't know how to use Toro and that made him upset. I understand some characters are stronger and build AP faster and that is getting fixed with the next update. Just because you can't use a character, that doesn't make it bad. Try another or head to the training mode to learn how to use him/them..

an example of how bad gaming journalists are these day in current generation of gaming industry. everyone are entitled to their own opinion of course. but reviews should not be done from a personal opinion stand point. that is what that makes it hard to be a good gaming journalist. which unfortunately in this generation the industry only have very few of such quality ones to be found.

Reviews are pretty much always personal opinions. It's very difficult to write anything like, say, an objective product review when there's isn't really any objective standard for what makes a game good.

It is, however, possible to emulate perspective. Which means that a reviewer who, say, hate driving simulators, will take his hate for the genre into consideration when reviewing a game like GT5, and try to review it for the people who like the genre. That too is difficult.

But yeah, I'm totally for personal reviews, and personally don't agree with this one.

Also, all respect to the reviewers who don't open with "Following the success of Super Smash...", what is this like the 30th person who does that? Everyone has gotten that long ago!

I know what you mean, I use Toro and I beat Raidens, and Kratos online all the time.

Everyone needs to stop caring about reviews do yourself a favor and judge the game on your own. If your able to rent a game or maybe you have a friend that owns that game play it for yourself or watch videos on that game, serious reviews are overrated find a way to try that game that catches your eye.

I don't agree with this review but what’s the point in giving a good mark to a exclusive, no one looks at the good reviews. This site is now guaranteed to get hits.

Toro doesn't need a buff, just so people know
I know a 150 AP combo with Toro.

dive kick, forward.jump neutral.square dive kick, forward.jump neutral.square dive kick, up.circle canceled into triangle, forward.triangle

you start in afro form, end in karate. its a loop of dive kicks to a jumping attack that can cancel into a dive kick again. The tricky part is that you have to press forward and jump then let go of forward so you don't do a forward+square attack.

If that all sounds complex, its because it kind of is. This game goes much deeper than some people think.

stupid review

lol major sites gave the game 7.5 + 8.0

calibann  +   972d ago
stupid review because it didn't give the game i've been anticipating all year a 10/10
Hicken  +   972d ago
Stupid review because it's stupid. It loses points for not having characters he wanted? Because he couldn't use items well? Because it's just like every other fighter out there and isn't perfectly balanced?

Stop being so quick to pull the "fanboy" card and actually pay attention to the content, for a change.

It deserves a 7, hate some gameplay choices they made.

BS.Even if you are a hater there is no way this game is a 4/10. I played it and it way above average especially if you play 2 vs 2. I reminds me of the absurdly low score someone once gave UC3 and it wasn't justified at all. The game has flaws that they can address in the sequel but don't bring that nonsense score in here.Do pretend that people give it an 8 and somehow you managed to find a way to jump four points down? BS I say. And the only ones more pathetic then reviewers like this are the pathetic people who try to defend the stupid score. It may be someones opinion but that doesn't make it right.My opinion might be that humankind should die a quick death. Does that make it automatically right because it is my opinion?

As much as I like the Playstation as a brand I must agree. All Stars doesn't quite strike my interest. I'll tell you why.

Sony as a property is founded on such a diversity of products that bringing all of them together seems somewhat foreign and incompatible.

To be more specific Sony can't be everything to everyone and then bring it all together and still make it work. Not many people are going to be interested in a match up between an onion and a god, a fat woman and a cat, or a man based on real life vs. a cartoon character.

It somewhat works with some of the matchups like Heavenly Sword vs. God of War. Why? Well because there is a foundation for similarity and a competitive comparison. You see, with Nintendo, as a brand, all characters seem to mold into a cartoon-like fantasy base...making all characters conform to the same expections and standards. At least it commits to an extent. With AllStars, however, the standards are as wide in difference as their are genres. I just don't see how anyone could be interested in the "who would win" concept because nearly every matchup can be determined through common sense.

Though Sony gets unrealistic by adding/forcing powers to the perceived weaker characters (I don't care what anyone says...a fat woman can't fly across the screen) over-the-top abilities. What really gets me is the fact that most of these character abilities weren't even present in their original games...even if they were they weren't used in the same concept of causing damage like they put in the fighting game.

A mortal man like Drake vs. a god like Kratos. It just doesn't fit to me. Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris? Absolutely. I just can't see it much here.

Its called a game for a reason. If you want realism i guess fighting games aint for you.
ACEMANWISE  +   972d ago
I guess not then. Though I don't remember a time when I wanted a last ranked fighter to fight the heavyweight champion of the world.
CrimsonSquall  +   972d ago
Okay, Im not going to be the one to change your mind, but at least understand the idiocy in some of your claims. To start it off, no there is no onion as a playable character, master onion is an npc for the dojo of parappa the rappas world. To be so ignorant and just all around douschely enough to question why anyone would want to see these characters fighting is just stupid. We didnt buy the game for the story, we bought it for the fighting gameplay and the characters weve grown up with. I mean do u honestly believe ppl who play brawl are like omfg and go nuts over the story? I mean cmon snake was in brawl, how does that fit with your cartoon realm? Just give it a chance, the gameplay is actuallly a bit deeper than SSB and more rewarding during 1v1

Ive seen quite a few reviews that look like they were PISSED at sony for "ripping off smash bros " and are giving it low scores for that reason alone. The games may be similar in some areas, but the there are also a lot of differences that separate them.
CalvinKlein  +   972d ago
You ps3 fanboys will be surprise to hear me say that this is too low a review for this game. I played the beta and it was at least decent, like any rating between 6 and 9 I could see it getting.

This happens to all games now tho. I dont even have halo 4 but thought it was lame that someone gave it a 7 only because it wasnt like COD, but then someone gave it a 2/10 and that is just funny. Same with this game, 4.0 is pretty low for this game from the beta I played. He probably was gonna give it like a 7 because he thought it was OK but then decided to lower it a few points for extra hits.

LOL. So you hate Sony, why not be honest?
DivineAssault  +   971d ago
i will never read a review from them ever again.. Theres just no way in hell its a 4/10 unless it had major game breaking flaws. Oh n the fact its cross buy makes it amazing.. i hope more games i want have that.. Ill need to buy more storage for it but hell, with PS Plus & cross buy, its definitely a good investment.. Cant wait til im off work tonight to open my copy.. I dont know which to tear open & play 1st; This or Persona golden
