lastly, the single player mode is a bit lazy. playing the campain for each character is quite repetitive and lacks variety. it's just 20x of the same player vs. bot matches. ..and polygon man is a huge cop-out of a final boss. it only feeds the smash-clone garbage.

so the bottom line for me: the core gameplay of PSAS is better than smash which is huge to me. this game is soo much fun to play. but it as a lot of other elements that are just not up to standards and while individually they critiques are small the cumulative effect is large. overall i'll give the nod to SSB as the better game but if superbot can get their act together on some of the finer details for a sequel i think PSAS could outshine SSB.

In Polygon Man's defense, he's a hyper obscure character from PS history, so it only inadvertantly ends up being near to the "Fighting Polygon Team."


no.  just no.  there is no defense for polygon man's inclusion.

The OP looks like you're pretending you wrote the article yourself or something...include a link!

OT: I've played neither

I did! No, I just forgot the link in my rush to post it first

I don't play Smash Brothers for deep tactical fighting mechanics. If that's my main concern there are many better fighters than PS Allstars out there. 

I want to refer you to point 8 in this thread right here


Sorry.

No idea as I haven't played the final game.

I played the demo though and hated that there's no ring outs and that you didnt actually do damage but just built towards a super move.

Ive been thinking about buying it anyway. Is the game better than the demo from those who have played both?

Agreed. I found that very ackward

it's only awkward if you want this game to be something other than what it is.  i learned quite quickly to look out for the glowing players who are ready to super my ass and approach them differently to stay out of the super spot or be prepared to interupt/evade.  it's really different but it is also really satisfying.

Its will always be ackward to attack anybody but deal no actual damage in a game. Has nothing to do with just this game specifically.



I'm a huge Smash Bros fan and I also a huge fan of classic style fighters like Street Fighter IV, Tekken, Soul Calibur, and DOA. So please tell me why I should play this game instead of those? I play Smash Bros because it is unique and fun and filled with Nintendo history. I play classic fighters when I want my tactile fighting fix. If I don't care about Sony mascots what is my reason for spending 60 bucks on this game?



I have to agree, it is MUCH better. I have both games, unlike some other people who tell you otherwise. Who here criticizing PS All Stars can prove to have both games? I can. PS All Stars is just lacking in presentation, but the gameplay is so much better.



The problem with listening to what people say about this game is that nobody will buy this game unless they are a Sony fanyboy.

It's nice that some of the people who have Allstars also have a 6 year old version of Smash running on Nintendo's last gen system to compare it to. But the argument won't hold any water until the new Smash is out.

Nintendo stop caring for smash.... Oh lol

You can confirm a trash insight the moment says I'm not bias because of x.

I would do reply to big points but why waste my time on someone that has to remind the readers he isn't a fanboy.

Have you played both extensively?


 My comment was not PAS it was on the writer.

played both and have nothing to say negative to say to both.

Doesn't change the fact that article was poorly written.
