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.
