everybodyplays.co.uk: OK, we’ll admit it. When we first heard about Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, we were a little bit sceptical. The unfortunate owner of one of the most unwieldy titles ever created (right up there with Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing and Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness), at least initially, the leaves weren’t reading all that kindly. A four player brawler starring a collection of Playstation characters, Sony was planning on walking down a well trodden path - a path Nintendo had practically built from scratch with its own beat 'em up, Super Smash Bros. But as Playstation All Stars Battle Royale proves, you can't judge a book by its cover - or its exceedingly long name.
