Summary: 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.

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
