It's surprising how much I enjoyed this game,
This review is from: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (Video Game)
When bb had the ps3 version on sale I figured why not. I knew it included a free vita download and that my kids would probably enjoy it. I never really got into smash brothers. I had fun the couple times I had played it but wasn't something I'd play on a regular basis. I really viewed this as a library builder/ game the kids would enjoy so my expectations for Sony smash didn't really exist. After downloading my copy I figured why not let's see how it is. I was in for one surprise. I was unable to put my vita down I was having so much fun. I grabbed kratos and rolled on. The story and mechanics are very simple and it progresses you into more difficult matches. It's easy enough for a casual gamer or child to enter and have a chance yet not so simplistic to become boring to the seasoned player. The game play is fluid and incredibly entertaining and the overall appearance looks beautiful on the vita. If you have any interest in fighting games I'd highly suggest this. Also if you own a vita and ps3 the disc version includes both copies where the vita only includes vita. The ps3 version as of right now is only $15 so do yourself a favor and buy it. I'm happy with the price I paid but, had I known how much fun this was I would have gladly paid full retail months ago.
Many call this game a Sony ripoff and I'll agree from what I remember of smash it is similar. I wouldn't say ripoff though. Really in gaming, music, movies etc everything has pretty much been done before. I'm sure you could take almost anything made this year and find something similar in the past. This is a great game with a Sony lineup and honestly this re sparked my interest causing me to pre order the upcoming smash. Both are great games deserving of being made available and I encourage you to give it a go.
