I played it for a while and well.... it feels kind of... lackluster and lazy. The game has potential but it just sort of seems a little meh. The combat is slow, the stages (albeit, they have great background work) are pretty much all the same, and using super combos to kill people is sort of annoying. I kind of hope the official release has a stamina mode and the other maps aren't as plain terrain wise as the demo showed, because this game looks like it's going to be a stick in the mud.


I dunno, even the super special animations are really lack luster and play as though this was made for the playstation 2. Sony got pretty lazy and that blows, cause this game could've been so much better. I hope the demo was just terrible and the actual game is not this bad. Any thoughts from other people who played the demo?

i havnt played the demo, but its mostly to test the online capabilities.

there are going to be alternate modes, a standard stock/lives mode, but not much is really known outside the characters and stages.

I haven't played it yet but the footage I've seen didn't really inspire me, it just looked sluggish and the character roster looks like they're clutching at straws

I mean Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil? Parappa?

However there are a couple of characters rumored to be in it that would get me interested such as Cloud Strife and Crash Bandicoot, however no rumors of Lara Croft? wtf...
Thanks Xiaowiriamu for the awesome signature!

they apparently couldn't afford to pay for any characters. each character they got for free.


and cmon, its supposed to represent playstation since the beginning, parappa and sir dan are some of the best characters from the ps1, the only others are crash, spyro, and croft.

no idea why they didn't use croft, spyro probably was a no go becauses hes being used by activision currently, and activision also holds the license for crash.

as for cloud, no idea. there should be a final fantasy character i admit, as much as i dont like ff.

I don't expect anyone who is 16 and under to realize the importance of parapa and Sir Dan.



Also, I'm kind of sad that Maximo didn't make the roster cut.

I'm 25... and played those games and enjoyed the characters, but they're nowhere near as iconic as say Crash Bandicoot who was practically Sony's mascot during the PS1's rise to dominance, not only is he infamous he also adds to the character diversity within the game, consider this

Out of the 22 confirmed characters, 14 have a human manifestation, now compare this to SSBB's 36 character roster, in which 17 (and this is including the 2 different Samus suits and adult and Toon Link) have a human manifestation, and it's immediately apparent that SSBB has superior diversity in its roster, and that is the beauty of the game

Sony needs the Spyro's and Crash's to bring in that character diversity, as without it, you're just playing another beat 'em up

I don't disagree with you, Sony didn't play their cards right with this game at all. They can't use spyro and crash because... well... they sort of threw them out a while ago. Bad move for sony. Either or, I still hope this game doesn't suck, but the appearance and appeal factor dwindles when you see how lazy they got on just overall presentation. Brawl/Melee/SSB had a much more exciting presentation of their game. This game is just... meh. So laaazzyyyyyy.

To be honest no new fighting games will be able to surpass Super smash melee. I'm sorry, but Melee has everything a good fighting game needs to have. Playstation characters don't look liek characters that belong in any fighting game. Except Kratos obviously.

Thanks to Amazing Monkey for the sig. Just like his name, he's amazing

The character blend in All Stars is really awkward, I will admit that, but if Sony put any effort into this game, it could've worked.
