Super kills?

The super kill system is incredibly dumb.

Fun, if Unbalanced

Pros: Having Kratos square off against Spike and Ratchet in the Frenzea homeworld is hilarious. The stages look and sound excellent, with some really fun mashups, and the game mechanics are easy to pick up and execute. Nice, if sometimes esoteric, cast of characters.

Cons: Some characters - I'm looking at you, Kratos - are considerably more powerful than others. Some are downright weak. The arcade mode gets a little repetitive due to lack of stage variety (at least, I always got certain stages repeated). No Rapture stage for Bioshock fans; instead, we are treated to scenes from Bioshock Infinite (advertising, anyone?).

A Nice Distraction

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale tries to take the ever so popular fighting formula of the Super Smash Bros. series, makes a few changes to it and puts Playstation characters in it. So does it work? Well...kinda. Now it is a lot like Smash bros, you have a mini story mode for each character, a local and online multiplayer section and a good amount of characters and stages to play on. The fighters can arrange from good (Kratos, Sly cooper) To decent (PaRappa the Rapper, Jak and Daxter) to just plain awful (Sir Daniels..ugh) The mini story is nice but can be a bit of a challenge at some times. The stages are also a nice touch and have great visuals but I wish there were more of them. Lastly the gameplay is a mixed bag, the super moves are nice and mix up the action a bit, but it can make the game a lot harder than it needs to be. In the end Playstation All stars is a fun distraction to play with your friends for a couple of days. A good rent, not so much a buy though.
