Very Good

Good Game - Hope for Expanded Content

Pros: The game play was good. The controls were easy to pick up on, and simple in there conception. It was fun to play as my favorite Playstation characters.

Cons: Content. For a game meant to bring Playstation's best to bear, many key starts of the system were missing. Maybe they are saving them for future content updates. But on the same vein, there were to few stages. In addition, there was too much "fluff" content. I could care less about the hundreds of icons that were there, give me playable characters like Lara Croft or really any Final Fantasy character (I do prefer Star Ocean though, so if any of the higher ups at Playstation see this, may I suggest Claude C. Kenny!). And the opening as closings not being full motion was a real drag!

Verdict: All in all, a fun game. Just lacked the right content to make it a real contender to SSB franchise. Something to look forward to, maybe?

Biggest drawback of this game is you have to buy an online pass to play online when clearly the main focus of a title like this is online play. The game feels like it was rushed. The leveling system is completely useless. Each character in this game has very unique moves, fighting styles, and abilities, which could be either good or bad but with 20+ characters its a bit much. A good portion of your play time will be testing out each characters move set to see which one you prefer the best. I give this game a sad 6 because for a rental unless you have a group friends that are willing to learn a characters move set and play the game there's nothing much to it. The story mode is very lacking in depth. This game could have clearly been better if it's development wasn't rushed. As a side note it leaves a bad taste in my mouth how much of the content in this game (characters, costumes, extras, ect) that you can only get by purchasing through playstation+.

After playing the game on here the game is as advertised. A good game with a unabashed Smash Bros influence. Unfortunately the arcade mode is a bit redundant and the great value of this game is in the online play which you need a pass for.

A very good game and plenty of fun. Worth a look.
