Really Bad

This Game is a Piece of Garbage

Awful. Character selection is pitiful, reward system is boring (basically costumes and music), levels become quickly redundant. Characters aren't even close to being equal; trying fighting Radec with Sackboy. This was an obvious ploy to cash in on the super smash brothers market, and they failed so very badly.

One thing that really drives me crazy is that you are required to use a special move to knockout your opponent. This makes the melee redundant and meaningless, and if you miss when trying to pull off your move you have to start building your meter all over again. It is a very tedious process.

Weapons in the level break down to five weapons. thats it. Not even good ones, just like five or six. Unlockable players are shown before you unlock them, taking what little fun that could be out of the game.

When in a 4x4, the screen gets so cluttered with action its hard to see your own character. On top of that, the interactive levels are more of a nusiance than anything, constantly getting swat by the background Hades or whatever.

Where is Leon from RE? Where is any Assassin's Creed character? Really - no call of duty or battlefield type character? This game really, really, really, really sucks.

Try it if you want to, I completely understand the appeal -- I thought I would love this game. This game gets so boring and monotonous so quick, its really not worth your time.

I got this game not expecting to much but it turns out it was actually fun, the sound was good, the graphics were suspect, the worlds were Bad Azz and the gameplay and controls were solid, I gave this game a 7/10 if the graphics were a little better I would gave it a 8 but none the less it was still very entertaining!

Online Pass required for Online Multiplayer

Renting from Gamefly you only have access to the offline multiplayer functionality of the game and none of the Online matchups without purchasing an online pass.

Also the Cross Game disc benefits for the PS VITA do not crossover. Methinks it is better to purchase this new as you get the VITA version included and the Online functionality.
