Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

11 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Back in the 90s, the pitch for Super Smash Bros will have been one of the oddest things to come through Nintendo’s doors in a long while. The thought of the company’s mascots battering seven shades of shit out of one-another in a scrappy cartoon brawler must have made about as much sense as… Well, having characters from the Mario universe racing karts through trippy rainbow worlds. And we all know how well that turned out.

Review: Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (Sony Playstation Vita)

Diehard GameFAN
9 December 2012
  • Summary: : Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale does a decent job of being Sony’s answer to Super Smash Bros. , and it gives hope that there will be an amazing game in the series down the road, but those who aren’t huge Sony fans will find the game limited enough to make it harder to swallow as a full priced release.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review

30 November 2012
  • Excerpt: If PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's roster was as packed out as its unwieldy title then SuperBot's début effort would be on to something. But it isn't, and to pretend otherwise would be foolish - Sony's heavy reliance on third-party support to create its sweeping range of iconic characters has backfired here, leaving us with slim pickings wrapped together with an unsentimental presentation that makes zero effort to explain Sony's fantastic history.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review

20 November 2012
  • Excerpt: ' It's easy to be cynical about a game that borrows so heavily from a well-loved franchise. And there's no question that, on the surface at least, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale bears more than a striking resemblance to Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. But this is a game where appearances can be deceptive.
  • Pros: Seeing your favorite Sony characters punch each other in the face, Humorous, well-designed levels that mash up franchises, Four-player battles with friends are fun, Cross play support for on-the-go fighting on the Vita
  • Cons: Complex battle system makes for a steep learning curve, Lacks the fluid feel of a great fighting game, Horrible, pixelated menu screens, Some stills and a bit of voice-over do not make for a compelling character narrative

  • Excerpt: isn't the most original game you'll play. Everything from its premise to the core mechanics have been shamelessly pillaged from Nintendo's

It ain't no smash, bro, but it'll do

  • Conclusion: PS All-Stars Battle Royale plays around with the Smash Bros formula, and comes away with a multiplayer experience that's enjoyable, but not essential

PlayStation Allstars: Battle Royale – Test / Review

21 December 2012
  • Summary: Mit der Veröffentlichung von PlayStation Allstars: Battle Royale wagt Sony einen Schritt in das Genre der Beat’em Ups und versucht sich dort zu etablieren. Ein großes Vorhaben dass der Publisher hier an den Tag legt, denn auf dem hiesigen Spielemarkt sind schon etliche Prügel-Spiele erhältlich. Viele von ihnen haben sich bereits einen Namen gemacht und lassen kaum Platz für Neues.
  • Pros: + 20 Charaktere, + Viel Liebe zum Detail, + Dank Cross-Play auch gegen Vita-Version spielbar, + Viele freischaltbare Extras, + Große Arenen, + Persönliche Geschichte je Charakter
  • Cons: - Manchmal etwas unübersichtlich, - Charakter-Sprüche wiederholen sich öfter, - Arcade-Modus schnell langweilig, - Keine wirkliche Story

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale - Anmeldelse

14 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Engang tilbage i 90erne var PlayStation det helt store. Med spilikoner som Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon og Solid Snake var der ingen ende på diskussionerne om, hvem der skulle være PlayStations pendant til Mario. Et spil, der i tidens ånd, der lod de kendte figurer kæmpe med hinanden, måtte være lige det, der var brug for!

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

10 December 2012
  • Summary: Estamos ante un producto ideal para disfrutar con más amigos, pues el caos y la diversión que generan los piques entre conocidos lo hace mejor videojuego. Sin embargo, transcurridas unas cuantas horas veréis que se le acaban las posibilidades debido a un poco profundo sistema de combate, unas opciones de juego poco originales y un elenco de luchadores que, aunque a priori está bien, a la larga también nos ha parecido un poco limitado.
  • Pros: Poder disfrutar de una mecánica de juego similar a Smash Bros. con personajes típicos de la familia PlayStation. El aspecto vivo de alguno de los escenarios. Ofrece la opción de Cross Play entre PS3 y Vita. La variedad de los ataques de poder. El multijugador.
  • Cons: Sistema de combate limitado. El jefe final del Modo Arcade no tiene carisma y batirlo no será complicado. A la larga se vuelve un tanto monótono.
