Playstation All Stars Battle Royal is an amazing fighting game wrapped in an idea we have seen before. When it comes down to it, what makes a great game in any genre is balance and All Stars has it in droves. Although some will never see its brilliance, I would maintain that once played it could change the mind of many a sceptic. Add to this a return for some of Playstation's well missed characters and awesome value for money in Cross Buy and you have one of the most refreshing fighting games in years.
A tribute to the PlayStation fans that have supported the brand over the years, and whom have been eagerly awaiting a game like this since the advent of Smash Bros. SuperBot has delivered a game that embodies everything these iconic PlayStation franchises and characters offer, and it will surely make PlayStation fans proud.
With a more deliberately-designed fighting system, Battle Royale strives for the sort of cred you'd sooner find in an arcade than a living room get-together. The end result is a serviceable party game that shoots for the stars but ultimately comes up short of its competitive aspirations. In its attempts to take its format in a different direction, it has inadvertently skewed itself away from the fundamentals that would make it work. In the end, you can safely say that Battle Royale is indeed not like Smash Brothers, but it might have been better if it were.
This is an amazing game! At first, it may look like a Smash Brothers, but if you really play it, and see what it is trying to do, I guarantee that you will love it. The gameplay is fast and frantic. The AP Meter is an amazing concept. The game is pretty balanced for the most part and overall, i would definitely recommend this game for anyone
Un videojuego de lucha inspirado en el Super Smash Bros, donde el rooster de personajes son diversos personajes iconicos de Playstation y algunos invitados de otras empresas.
El apartado artistico según el escenario que se escoja varia para adaptarse a como es el diseño artistico de la frnaquicia de la que proviene, lo que es un buen punto, pero la cantidad de escenarios disponibles es muy justo, hubiera sido mejor tener un par más de escenarios.
La lista de canciones disponibles del videojuego posee canciones originales y otras de algunas de la franquicias que aparecen en el juego, y al igual que los esenarios, la lista de canciones es muy justa, hubiera sido mejor algunas más.
Los personjes disponibles para el momento del lanzamiento eran suficiente, pero la cantidad que se agrego por medio de DLC fue insuficiente para un juego como este, donde se puede jugar de forma local de a 4 jugadores.
Sobre los trofeos que el juego presenta, ninguno es problematico y te hacen por lo menos pasarte el juego con cada personaje y realizar ciertas acciones especificas, siendo esto también con los personajes DLC. Por otro lado lastimosamente el server prontamente fue cerrado por Playstation, por lo que los trofeos online del juego son ahora imposibles.
Sobre los modos de juego locas, debo de mencionar que son muy divertidos para pasar el rato con amigos, jugando de a 2, 3 o 4 jugadores de forma local, pudiendo ser usada una PS Vita como mando. Por otro lado, de forma individual, una vez completado los arcades con cada personaje, ya no queda mucho que hacer.
Un juego de lucha entretenido al que le pesa la falta de contenido y una jugabilidad más tosca que la de su competencia, aunque considerablemente más variada. Se siente la falta de interés de Sony en mantener vivo este tipo de proyectos, pero el cross-buy con PS-VITA (comprar las 2 versiones por el precio de una) es de buen trato al consumidor por parte de PlayStation. Que el on-line tenga código debería estar clasificado como estafa.
Is this game just a simple Super Smash Brothers Clone? Or is it a new fighting game that brings new mechanics to life to make the perfect fighter - let's find out in my review!
The Music in this game simply isn't that good. It isn't fitting, and usually seems like some sort of rock song that doesn't match with the environment. The sounds aren't that good either, every hit doesn't have a satisfying sound to go with it, generally just some gimmicky noise that only goes with the element (Like a stupid zap for Cole's lightning) Either way, if you want music/sounds - I wouldn't get this game.
The graphics for this game are pretty good, to be honest. But take one second to look closely at each character, and you might be disappointed. If you look at Cole, for example - he looks almost NOTHING like he does in the InFamous games. The graphics are ok, but the characters/environments don't entirely look like their respective games. It isn't like Smash Bros. Where they have their own take on the graphic style, they're trying to make it look like how they do in their games - but they just fail. In the end, the graphics aren't how they could, should look in the PS3 era.
Ugh, not this. They basically just copied Super Smash Brothers' gamestyle, and smashed it into this. I'm someone who put about 50 hours into this game, and 1000s of hours into Smash Bros - so I know what I'm saying when this is the case. Generally, there might not be a problem with that - Smash Bros is great! But unfortunately, they fail so hard at it. They tried to make it unique with the crappy killing mechanic, but ultimately fail. Not to mention, jumping requires
1/10 WITH my Thumbs Down of Crap
Ugh, screw this game's story. You choose one of your 20 (or so) characters, and fight a bunch of bad guys. Then, you will eventually encounter your rival. There is a cutscene, which leads to a fight. It hardly explains why they want to fight, they just want to. The cutscene is also pretty badly made, with both of the characters saying things that they wouldn't usually say. Then it finishes off after the fight with your rival with an okay boss fight against some head. Who is he? I dunno. Why does he hate you? I dunno. He just does. Either way, the story is extremely poorly put together.
5/10 (Only because of cutscene)
In the end, this game is NOT worth the purchase. It can be fun with a couple of friends for a few minutes. Then, the novelty wears off. Then the game gets boring. Take the new Smashbros for example. Over 80 stages, and over 55 characters. That. Is. HUGE in comparison to this. This just... ****. For your own good, don't get this game unless you can get it for $3.
4/10 WITH my Thumbs Down of Crap
