Review: Playstation All Stars Battle Royale (New Gamer Nation)

Let’s get the most obvious comparison out of the way first. Yes, this game is very similar to the Super Smash Bros series. And while that’s true, Playstation All-stars Battle Royale is different enough that it doesn’t feel like a rip-off. Although differences are definitely good, they don’t automatically make the game itself good, and this is the case with Battle Royale, as it falls a little bit short of what could have been amazing. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3) 7/10

why can't characters sprint?

pushing the analog stick all the way in one direction is sprinting. Not pushing it as much in that direction is walking. Why can't people grasp that concept?

Who needs a sprint when almost every character has a move or two that enables fast movement across a level

Sony's Smash Bro's clone didn't work. For one, it is designed in the west, but the Japanese make fighting games better. And two the characters are not a big selling point.

Sony makes great games, they shouldn't have fallen for this quick cash-in. How about they finish the last Guardian?

Just out of curiosity, have you played it? Or are you basing it off of the wide ranging reviews of others? Not condemning, just curious.

I don't know why these characters would be less of a selling point as fighters than, say, the Smash Bros cast. They have a good stable of iconic characters, that of course have a few shortcomings in terms of pleasing everyone, but it is solid. In my experience with the game, and the Vita version at that, I can tell you this was no quick cash-in. It is a quality made game. It offers a different fighting experience than more of the hardcore and more abundant Tekken and Street Fighters. I think it is a good game, 8/10 material. Not sure where the general disdain for the game comes from, but to each his own I suppose.

That aside, I agree. They need to give us the heads up as to what is going on with games like TLG. Silence only infuriates. I almost have to imagine at this point that they decided to make it a PS4 title, because with a title that they gave so much coverage to and so much press presence at different events, the thing can't be scrapped. But if it were coming out, they would have to be dropping us breadcrumbs about it to some degree. This generation is coming to it's end. Perhaps a PS3/PS4 title. Kind of curious how many titles will end up going that route in the beginning, supporting new hardware while not being able to ignore the juicy install base of the previous generation.

TLDR: PSASBR is a good game, don't get the general bashing. Also yea, The Last Guardian...give us some info already.
