"The single-player campaign is a mix of nostalgia and character-specific story." —
The arcade mode excels on all levels, as gamers can battle against their rivals to work their way up to defeat the Polygon Man (PlayStation's first, if short-lived, mascot). The dialogue and art before and after each character's match will make long time PlayStation fans enjoy the nostalgia factor while bragging about all those W's.
Equally enjoyable is the level design within "PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale." The giant mash-up reflects a wonderfully crafted expertise, with each level including elements from two franchises together. Take for an example, Metropolis, which is a standard "Ratchet & Clank" city level that is fine to battle upon... until flood waters rise and you're now fighting in a level ripped right out of "LittleBigPlanet".
The thing that most gamers will enjoy in this title are both the character-specific combat trials and the general challenges. Boy, these really help you get a feel of every character through these challenges, making "PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale" an entertaining experience for novices and hardcore gamers alike.
