"An enjoyable 'Super Smash Bros.' clone, but lacks the raw ingredients to stand on its own." —
For all of Superbot Entertainment's attempts to create an adept fighting game, you cannot play "PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale" without noticing how crucial elements are lacking. Out of 20-plus characters, the roster comes off as short-sighted and with so many classic PlayStation franchise players missing in action, this game makes it hard to stand out against your typical fighting games.
Presentation-wise, "PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale" suffers from a distracting color scheme, distracting camera and distracting set-pieces. While you may be able to customize your experience through the usage of unlockable icons, backgrounds and titles, the presentation behind these things leave much to be desired.
Despite it's hefty flaws, "PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale" presents a lofty goal for both the console's company and fighting fans. Our suggestion would be to rent this title, but for fighting fans this would make a decent addition to add into your collection.
Don't take our word for it, you can watch the trailer for yourself below:
