PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is the feverishly anticipated crossover fighting game developed by SuperBot Entertainment, and has been created and published exclusively for PlayStation by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game brings PlayStation exclusive characters from all walks of its gaming history into one gigantic brawler, so fans of any era can play as their favourite characters once more and go head to head in one chaotic mishmash after another.
The game places a heavy focus on multiplayer, with players competing both against each other and in co-op, as well as various modes for single player and online play, which features a tournament mode. Up to four players can battle at one time using characters from various PlayStation franchises, including Kratos from God of War, PaRappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper, Fat Princess, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, and many more. The arenas that these fights will take place in draw inspiration from the environments of various PlayStation titles, with areas merging two titles into one; for example, one arena fuses the games Little Big Planet and Buzz!, whereas another combines God of War with Ratchet and Clank.
Combat is both exhilarating and fun, as each character has his or her own signature combat style based on the game that they star in, giving them their own move set that reflects their trademark abilities, making each character you play as new and exciting as the last. The damage a player causes another player allows them to gain orbs, which add up to fill a super meter on the screen that goes up to three levels. Each level you fill up to unleashes a super attack, with the third level being the most vicious and the only way to truly defeat an opponent, as there are no health bars to deplete, or any way to knock a player off or out of the environment.
Gameplay has been developed to incorporate as many different aspects of various PlayStation titles as possible, which adds many interesting and innovative elements into levels. For instance, the Buzz! level has players answering questions mid-fight, which then in turn gives the player a bonus if the question is answered correctly. This style of interactivity will keep players on their toes, and means that the tables could be turned during a fight at any given moment. Bringing together both new and old, iconic and obscure characters together, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale offers a wide variety of gameplay and action, allowing you to experience the best of PlayStation gaming in one package.

I enjoyed the game but not as much as I hoped. I will go into detail with individual points. Single player - this mode is fun the first couple of times you play it but then gets a little boring after that. This mode is just to find which character you like and become better. There are trails and other things to try out but unless you are a perfectionist you probably would not do this with every character. Versus - If you have a group of friends around this can be pretty fun and competitive. This is where the game shines. Just having fun taking out your friends in free for all or 2v2. It can go on for hours and you probably would not even notice the time. Online - Almost a fun part of the game as you take on the world of other people. Once you get the hang of things you will enjoy this part of the game. You gain ranks as you win more matches so it keeps you on your toes. Overall - I would give it a 7. The game is average at best. Best with local multi-player. Single player can become a drag and feels like it is missing something other than take on CPU opponents.
As a huge PlayStation fan since the 90's, I was obviously looking forward to this character-clashing fighting game! When I first got the game, it exceeded my expectation which says something. This game truly is amazing, a must-have for any PlayStation fan or just a fan of fighting games - it's easy for a newcomer to find a character for them that is easy to master and enjoy their story. Despite some slightly bad reviews for this game, I have no problem whatsoever- great characters, great stories, awesome on-line and everything a PlayStation fan could want! 10 out of 10.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a great game that is a lot of fun. If you are after a fighting game with huge combos then this is not the game for you. Luckily I like fairly simple fighting games and this hits the spots. Great use of Playstation characters and if you have a PS Vita you get this version for free. Overall, a great game and most importantly it is fun to play.
