Oprainfall Review: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Oprainfall writes: "PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale had a lot of potential but it just seems mediocre at its core. There is nothing broken but there is nothing that makes it really stand out either. The cast of characters are interesting and each brings their own unique style of fighting to game, which is what a good fighter should do. The combat itself is just complex and fun in small chunks but, in the end, you will find one or two moves you like with each character and spam the hell out of them. Even on the highest difficulty you can still win in this way with little to no problems. When playing with human players online, the game feels much better in this regard as human players will not fall for the tricks the AI will. It is a decent fighting game at best but I can’t recommend this one at full price. If you catch it on sale, you may want to pick it up for a trip down memory lane. But beyond that, I would save my cash for something else." (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3) 2.5/5

...

Reviews that give this score or lower are ridiculous.

Having played the game myself, and having many (and I mean MANY) friends who had played this game, or have it themselves; I find it REALLY hard to believe you've actually played the game. Or, maybe you're just bad at it....

ugh.

You can't expect everyone to love the game just because you do.

That coming from the power ranger that got a lot of hate...

On a side not I had a dream Marvel characters and Power Rangers were released as DLC for this game

"ugh."
Yeah, that's what I said to your post. Fanboy much?

Actually, you can expect everyone to love the game. Everyone DOES love the game. Until I actually hear someone who has played the game say that they don't like it, I have no reason to believe otherwise.

I've let everyone I know play it. 100% positive response, so far.

Bad score from Operationrainfall.com....
big surprise /s
Tired of the hate this game gets when it's a solid fighter despite what people like/don't like about it.
If they had given it a 3 out of 5 then fair enough but a 2.5? what the hell?

What is with people saying 'haters' these days? Are we all Justin Bieber fans? Maybe impartial is the correct word. Stop all this 'hater' nonsense. It's fucking stupid. And yes, I HATE it.

Besides, until there are proper standards in gaming journalism as a whole, expect reviews to be sporadic.
CrimsonSquall  +   872d ago
You basically just said exactly the same thing as me, just w/o the word "hater"
jakmckratos  +   873d ago
Ah a review that came 2 months after the game was released that gave a much lower score than the other, more reputable gaming sites. Seems useful.

I haven't met a single person who doesn't either really enjoy or LOVE this game. I've even had a few friends who can't go back to Smash Bros., like myself. Smash Bros. is just too simple now. There isn't enough depth to the combat and the balancing issues make it unplayable for serious fighting fans.

All-Stars may be a brawler, but it was made by some of the industry's top fighting developers/gamers. They know what they're doing when it comes to combat.

This game isn't that bad. The graphics are outstanding, arcade mode is fun, there are a ton of unlockables, and the nemesis system is amazing. it runs very smooth too! anything below a 7/10 is ridiculous.

In your opinion.

Fixed it for ya.
