4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant Surprise thats fun, 27 Nov. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (PlayStation Vita) (Video Game)
My review for PS3 and Vita are the same (just minor graphical differences between the 2 and slight control differences)

Blah Blah Blah its a Smash Bros copy...

Kinda but its is fun. I played this at the Eurogamer Expo and in all honesty wasnt blown away. It seemed like a novel way to spend 10-15 minutes. I played the Beta and my thoughts did not change. I still bought it on release though. I liked the idea of Cross play and getting the PS Vita version free when buying the PS3 version.

I have not stopped playing since i got it on Friday. Its an easy task to put on the VITA from the PS3 disc (one use only). THe games is without a doubt fun and addictive. Its colourful, chaotic and rewarding. As a previous reviewr said i think the difficulty levels are spot on. Its challenging without being infuriatingly hard and cheap. There are 20 character with 2 more DLC in January planned. Each character has its own style so there is no reason anybody shouldnt find a character that suits there playing style. Personally i prefer a character like Sweettooth over Fat Princess.

Now there arnt health bars. Each character has a power bar that fills up when you connect moves. THere are 3 levels each one increasing in power. Level 3 basically can wipeout all players on the screen. The idea is to have the highest number of 'kills' per round or hit a certain number of kills. It takes a bit to get used to but i kinda like the change.

Online is where the challenge is but it is still fun. I have had no connection issues playing on the Vita or PS3.

I wasnt expecting much with this game but found it a pleasant surprise. ITs fun in single player, fun in multiplayer and fun with friends. Basically the game doesnt take itself to seriously and if you can guess is .... fun.

Defo worth checking out
