I rented this game hoping playing without the online pass would be ok, it wasn't. It definitely has some Smash Bros to it, from the gameplay to the end boss. But the learning curve is a bit higher as each player really has its own set of moves and skills to learn. I don't suggest renting this unless you have friends to come over and play because without online it gets a bit repetitive at times. Fun for a bit but the online pass makes it worth the purchase not the rental.
While I was hoping to have a fun party game, similar to super smash, this game fell short. The graphics are very nice and the interactive stages are cool, but the gameplay is often very chaotic and hard to even follow your own player. You most likely will just spam one move over and over to get to your level 3 attack. The single player is awful. In order to get the platinum, you must play the single player "arcade" mode for EVERY character. Honestly, its the same thing each time and the cutscenes are just still pics. And if your renting you won't get an online pass. Save your time, and pass on this one.
