PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review - Gaming Nexus

From the review: "DO NOT call PS All-Stars a Smash Bros. knock off, it is actually anything but a copy or clone of Nintendo’s fabled fighter. SuperBot has taken the most basic premise of that series and crafted a full-featured fighter that delivers something beyond the casual experience and that crosses over into the competitive fighting realm."

Everyone has such a hard on for this game... except consumers. We have all grown tired of this media storm around this.

I don't know where you're looking, but the general reaction seems to be mixed. Most opinions seem to be 1 of the following...

1) Not exactly a fan of the combat and felt the game was rather lacking in content or could have done many things better.
2) Loved the combat (or thought it was great for a first attempt) and writes off most of the other problems as them "focusing on what matters".
3) A very small and very vocal (esp Smash on N4G) group that believes the game is impressive given the fact they were a new studio and were able to make a fighting game "this good" despite no formal experience (no prior Superbot game). Unlike the first 2 groups, they tend to make excuses for Superbot (justified or not) and gives Superbot the benefit of doubt 100% of the time. (Failed to get Dante's original costume, most if not all missing characters were the respective publishers fault [Activision asking too much for Crash / Spyro, Square preventing them from having Cloud, etc], etc)

4)A larger and equally vocal group that believes the game is crap for any number of reasons. Sometimes, it's because it's not SSB. Other times, because it's TOO MUCH like SSB. There are those who have the opinion that the game is garbage because it's a Sony exclusive, and all such games are overrated.

Funny how you add in a lot of speculative things only on the third group, but treat them as if they believe them 100% instead of suggesting them as possibilities.

All that stuff you added at the end is stuff we know nothing about, but things that are not outside the realm of possibility.

Overall, interesting that you left that last group out completely.

Edit: Actually, some people just like to be really thorough; to me, half-assed speculation is pretty worthless, so if I'm gonna do it, I might as well be as in-depth as possible.

Doesn't matter. Believe what you want.

@ Hicken

I don't know many people that write long winded posts in defense of something, without actually believing what they're saying. If they wanted to merely suggest the possibility, then they would do so in a single paragraph, since these aren't impossible to believe concepts. Here watch how simple it can be...

"Contrary to what some people believe, Superbot needs permission to use any character in their game. For all we know Superbot fought to get Snake or classic Dante in the game and merely took what they could get (Raiden / DmC Dante)."

Really? Because I haven't met anyone that actually played the game that hasn't enjoyed it.....

Only people I find bashing it are the "its a Super Smash bro wannabe!!!" Then I ask if they actually played the game and suddenly they don't become as vocal.

Great game. Not without it's flaw's and definitely has room for improvement with a sequel. But still, it's a lot of fun
