I really, really wanted to love this game. I am a big fan of Sony and hope to see future all-star titles, but I can't help but feel a little let down by this first entry. As far as gameplay goes PAS plays very similar to SSB, which is not a bad thing. I would give SSB the edge as far as which is better. Playstation All-Stars is good, but little bugs cause hits to not register leading to a lot of frustration. Also the fact that some of the characters have the ability to not be hit by attacks just because of their lack of hight leads to some annoying issues. Putting all that aside however, PAS does an admirable job being like SSB, but not too much like SSB. Also hampering the game is a really small lineup of characters, and so much can only be unlocked via buying DLC it is hard not to feel like Sony is trying to nickel and dime you. I believe that if there is a sequel to this, with better gameplay and more content, Super Smash Brothers will be in danger of losing its throne.
Everything more characters, more levels, more costumes this game has a lot of potential to shut those stupid xbox losers up with their exclusive characters and could compete with supper smash bros. if it just had more give me nathan hale or even jospeh sheppard give me crash badicoot where his super move is him putting on the uka uka mask and running through people give me sorra from kingdom hearts with mickey donald and goofy, give me a level with lair on top of a dragon while it battles other dragons give me ellen or that other guy from folklore or even a level using ARI from heavy rain come on i can't be the only one wanting this.... Great game just give me more cuz this wasnt enough.
