True Desperation

Let's get what matters out of the way first. This game is fun to play. Having said that, let me follow by saying this is something we've known since the first smash brothers game on N64. As fun as the game is, if you've played smash brothers, digimon rumble arena, powerstone and the like, you know what to expect. The story is extremely lazy. (Spoiler Alert) Nobody knows why all these different people are coming together, especially the game itself. You just show up, and start fighting, and one person in particular points you out halfway to start some bs with you. Once you have bested that person, the 'final boss' throws a bunch of clones at you. Some endings hint at other characters from your selected one's world will be joining in the sequel, but its still like "Why were you here to begin with?" Sorry, but 'I'm gonig to this gathering' isn't enough. It screams of sony's desperation. "Copy everything, just put our name on it" seems to be the running theme of MS and Sony over the past 5 or six years. Though I am not a PS fanboy, I do love PS, and I was really looking forward to this being a really great game, not just smash bros for playstation. It works out though, because I liked playing smash so much. I was told the point of the game was for multiplayer, but then if the reasoning is so shallow as all that, then why is this game even necessary considering there is a better version of this out? Just for the character skins I guess...
In any case, totally worth the rent. As smash as proved, this type of gameplay is fun so why not, I suppose.

What a total let down. Maybe this would have been more entertaining online. But judging from the single player this wasn't something I was interested in forking out the extra cash for the activation code.

Every one says its online play is what makes its fun, and i bought the ps3 so i wouldn't have to pay to play online, but it looks Sony really screwed us on this one and went xbox style and made it were you need to pay $10 to even use it online
