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.

Not Bad

Overall the game isn't that bad. I like the idea of Kratos shooting arrows at Nathan Drake, or Raiden and Dante having a sword fight. One thing I admire the most about this game is that the controls are very simple. Anybody could play this game and easily master it, even if it isn't your cup of tea. If you want to compare it to Super Smash Bros., don't, because it is not the same, even though the idea was branched from the Smash Bros. franchise. What makes it different is the way you have to defeat your opponents, emphasis on have to. The way it works is you have to attack your opponents in order to fill up your Super meter (there are 3), then unleash it on your opponents in order to KO them. That's the only way to win. No knock-off-screen-KO like Smash Bros. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. It adds a strategic element to the game that Smash Bros. lacked. And the reason why I'm giving it a "Not Bad" review, instead of a "This game is awesome" review, is because I don't think it's worth 60 bucks.

Sony Smash Bros?

First things first, it's a solid game, the controls are tight and everyone plays as you would imagine them to. Each character feels different (except for Cole and Evil Cole) and the moves show off what they do in their own games. My major problem is with the character list, it feels like they were having trouble picking a decent roster.Big Daddy from Bioshock wasn't even on a PlayStation console until a year after it came out, they used "new" Dante instead of the one people are familiar with, and there's 2 versions of Cole from inFamous.
Despite my minor gripes with the game, it's still worth checking out, and it may hold you over until the next Super Smash Bros. game.
