Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale | Good Game Review

It's not a bad game by any stretch, but ultimately it's a jack of all trades. It can't match Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. for accessibility, and at the same time it falls short of the deeper combat subtlety of serious brawlers like Street Fighter. It's not terrible, but it's not amazing.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol... Street Fighter a serious brawler... Hadoken! Hadoken! Hadoken! Hadoken! Yep...

No offense to those who like it, but all you do is the same thing over and over again. It was a wonderful series back in the day, but the new one feels overrated.

The people who do the same thing over and over again are the people who suck, hence why they need to spam energy balls to even stand a chance of winning. Watch two professionals play head to head in a tournament and you'll see that SF is MUCH more complex than you may believe.

I don't see why you are getting disagrees Logic is pretty much spot on. Spammers generally are the ones that use that to dwindle the person down, but in comparison to those who play at Evo or even just streaming from Team Spooky or something of the sort those are pros. A Hadoken is generally mainly used by them to apply light pressure to either get in or put a bit of distance.

This video disagrees with you (even though there's a few HADOKENs in there!):

Ways to counter a poorly timed Hadouken in SFIV (top of my head):
Blanka: slide, ex ball
Chun li: U1
Sagat: U1, U2
Bison: headstomp, ex scissor, U1 (close), U2
balrog: headbutt, U1, ex dashpunch, TAP
Ibuki: ex slide
Akuma: demon flip
Ryu: HK tatsu, U1 (close)
Ken: U2 (close)
Seth: U1
If you still fear hadoukens, then I don't think you qualify to talk about what is or isn't a serious brawler.

The fact of the matter is there will be those reviewers and those on forums who will disagree with our own take on games, movies and so on. We may not hold their reasons valid, but I think it's a simply matter of accepting our differences of opinion. I don't play fighting games too much (I get blisters within 5 minutes of playing SFIV), but I do enjoy PSABR. While not the greatest fighting game, I do believe it's pretty good for it's first entry and I give it a solid 8-8.5/10. I prefer to play it on the Vita because I can play it in short burst, and have fun (even though I've lost all my matches so far). It's more intimate to play on the Vita.

The day i consider reviews from abc will be a cold day in hell.

LOL at the disagree. I'm sorry apparently I am wrong in saying that people may have differences in opinions and how I like to play PSABR. I clearly must be wrong. What I find interesting about people on these forums is they cannot accept people's difference of opinion on games whether pro or con. If it's an outrageous score where you think it deserves a 9 and it gets a 3 then quite understandable. Yet the personal attack such as name calling is praised amongst our peers. We name call and get agrees without any attempt of explanation for said name calling; although if you're an adult there really should be no need for name calling. Let's use our intelligence to have a friendly debate to see where we may agree or differ and not resort to trivial name calling, because as much as people may get agrees for calling someone an insult, it merely shows the immaturity, which may lead one to believe they lack the maturity and articulation to express oneself in an articulate manner.
