Play as your favorite PlayStation character with all their signature moves! See our game review for all the details.

The year 2012 seems to be the year of new fighting games. Among them, we have the likes of Skullgirls, Persona 4 Arena, and Street Fighter X Tekken. However, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a different kind of fighting game. It is filled with moments that are crazy, random, and chaotic. Most importantly, it is filled with all your favorite PlayStation characters!

All-Star Cast

There are over 20 characters in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, including PaRappa, Dante from Devil May Cry, Fat Princess, Jak and Daxter, Kratos from God of War, Nariko from Heavenly Sword, Raiden from Metal Gear, Ratchet and Clank, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Sly Cooper, and Sweet Tooh from Twisted Metal. Every character has their signature moves from their own games that they can use to perform combos on the other characters. Even if they are not fighting, characters like the Patapons can be seen in the stages and other places in the game.

Chaos and Fun

The goal of the game is to build up your power meter by attacking the other players. Once you fill up the meter, you can perform a super move that will knock the other players out of the ring and earn you points! You can build up to three levels of meter and each higher level super is more deadly, allowing you to knock out more players easily. Overall, the game is chaotic and fun. A lot of the stages and characters blend into each other, making it hard to keep track of where you are on the stage.

Online play is hit or miss, most of the time the lag is ok but there are weird bugs and glitches that can occur in the middle of a fight, such as a player becoming invincible. Finally, not all characters seem balanced. Certain characters are obviously better than others in that they can build meter more easily. As long as you are not playing super seriously, you can have fun. The game is best played with friends.

I know, but you can say the name such as "I just got this game from GameStop." THAT'S what I meant. If you can do it in comments, why can't you do it here?
