Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Review - Midlife Gamer

Derek "digi" McRoberts says:"PlayStation All Star Battle Royale is Sony’s latest release to bring family multiplayer to the masses. Reviving 20 “All Stars” from the Sony family such as Sir Daniel Fortesque, Parappa and Nariko. Pitted against each other in a winner takes all brawl.

The comparisons can obviously be drawn between PSABR and Nintendo’s Smash Brothers, and while the gameplay is identical, Sony brings its own take on the medium, with the way it has designed the characters. Where Nintendo focused on the brawling close combat of their warriors, Sony’s characters have far more of a focus on the ranged combat abilities of their stars. That said, the balance is sufficiently robust and comparable for each selection to never put any choice at a disadvantage, but distinct enough to make each feel unique." (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3) 8/10
