Very Good

Worth a try.

This game is really good but it could have been better. Needs more characters, maps, and a better arcade mode, and maybe some kind of adventure mode like SSBM had.

This doesn't measure up to current Smash Bros. games but its a good first time around for Sony. I'd like to see this continue and evolve just as Smash Bros. has.

Shows potential but not fully there.

Pros- Easy controls, fun characters to play, fun overall gameplay, and cross-play with Vita.

Cons- Online pass, arcade mode felt tedious, online matches can take a while to setup, and my copy (as well as many others) kept freezing when in arcade mode which would make a player have to restart that characters entire arcade story over again.

Overall: Overall I found the game fun but I had to deduct 2 points for the fact they threw in an online pass even though the developer will no longer be doing much with this anymore and another 2 for the fact my copy (as well as others) kept freezing on arcade mode which would make you have to redo that characters arcade story from the start. That second issue could have been easily fixed with a patch/update but they have chosen to do nothing and leave it where it is at this time. This game showed great potential to be a fun arcade fighting game like Super Smash Bros but they need a bit more work before they get there. Recommend only as a rental or a bargain bin buy.
