Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale PS3 Review [Capsule Computers]

Joshua Spudic of Capsule Computers writes:

"Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale pits twenty characters from the Playstation universe in four player battles to see which character is supreme. A concept as old as video games themselves (well, not really), the crossover genre brings in a new challenger, one worth inserting into your Playstation 3. Solid fighting gameplay that offers hours of content for both the single and multiplayer in all of us is just one ingredient in this excellent game. Fantastic visuals, a soundtrack that is heavenly to the human ears and an excellent roster elevates PS All-Stars to the rank of a must have game." (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3) 9/10

Tried it on my friend's Vita yesterday. I was really surprised on how smooth it felt. Vita's console is very powerful but it really need AAA games that can fully utilize it. Definitely gonna buy a Vita when that happens.

I'm not quite sure about All Stars yet though. I was sure it would include many modes, extras, cutscenes with interaction with the different characters and unlockable characters but when it didn't I felt a bit disappointed. I see no reason in playing it alone like I could with SSBB. I'm not saying any of the games are better but All Stars need more extras in my opinion.

The Vita needs games, and not old rehashed/chewed-up franchises. New IP's or die.

I really wish I could see your psn id so i could see how many of the games you bash you've actually played.

you prolly won't find his id but you can find mine!
I agree the game deserve a 6 at best! this game is over rated for it to get a 9!
cpayne93  +   741d ago
You say I can find yours but I don't see it... it isn't on your home page.

j-blaze attacks a bunch of games that i'm pretty sure he's never played. haven't seen you around much but it's hard to trust a guy who's status is "im not the good guy". sounds like a account made for trolling to me.

This game is great,its amazing tho how much hate this game received. I don't see why haters are soo strongly against of the idea or the thought that other companies can't and shouldn't do their own take on a ssb game.

The source of the hate is just ignorant Nintendo and Sony fanboys that have only played one of the games.

-Nintendo fanboys hate that Sony makes a game that looks like Super Smash (but in reality plays completely different)

-Sony fanboys is saying that Super Smash is stupid and All Stars is ten times better.

People is saying that's just their opinion but you can't base a opinion on something you have not tried or watched. Hate the hate.

And in short, there's no middle ground...
RustedMan  +   741d ago
no. actually, I love SSB and have a ps3.
I -want- a SSB clone.
in other words, there is a middle ground, cater to the needs of those who wish to have a brawler on the ps3.

Hell the lead designer on All Stars SAID that this game was SPECIFICALLY meant for those who want SSB-like experience on a different console.

As I asked before, Are you guys happy about All Stars as it turned out? or were you expecting something different?

@Mykky and Bxbomber
the source of the hate comes from gamers who generally thought this game would be good until they played the game!

2.) this industry as of now is a bunch of copy and paste and sequels, so saying its like smash bros. is not even the tip of the hate.

3.) its quite obvisous that this game was suppose to be Playstation smash bros. and instead of following the idea and adding more to the style of genre, they cut short.

4.) if they didnt want to be compared to smash bros. why would they make a mash up like this anyway? if this game is so damn near perfect what do you think about digimon rumble arena? both digimon and PSASBR have damn near identical game play.

a 9 is too much...

Best review I've read for the game so far. Very in-depth, and OBJECTIVE, the way a review SHOULD be.

Anybody else notice how you could easily tell the difference between how he personally felt(such as on the roster choices) and his professional opinion?

THAT'S how you do it.

... though Parappa was spelled wrong, lol.

Edit: lol @ the usual suspects trolling while having ZERO experience with the game.
