PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a fighting game that consists of both a multiplayer and a single-player mode. In my opinion, the single-player was very repetitive and eventually it became a burden that I just wanted to finish. Basically, the story-line is the same for each character (the people that you fight etc.) but each character has a different 'enemy', which is the 'boss fight' in the middle of the story-line. The characters in the game are all cross-overs from different games on the PS3 console (Kratos from God of War, Nariko from Heavenly Sword, Drake from Uncharted etc.) New characters have been added recently too (Kat, Zeus and Emmett). I think that there could have possibly been a bit more effort thrown into the single-player but overall it was alright. The portion of the single-player that I enjoyed was the introduction. Each character had their own introduction and 'mid boss-fight' cut-scene which were quite amusing. Personally, I enjoyed the multiplayer much more then I enjoyed the single-player because I loved fighting against other teams/people. The multiplayer has many competitive modes such as 2v2 (elimination, most kills, kill limit etc.). However, you can also play in a free for all match. There is both ranked mode (you get belts depending on the amount of wins and losses you gained) and regular match mode. If you're starting off I'd recommend playing in the regular mode because people who play the ranked mode tend to be hard-core players who don't see losing as an option. I found that the online community on the game was actually decent. There were no people that were trying to start fights and everyone just tried to have good times together. However, I found that most of the people I played against were complaining about certain characters being 'over-powered'. I do admit that even I believe that some characters (Zeus) are overpowered just because of how far their 'special' bar fills, or how they can constantly attack you without you being able to exit the combo (loops), and even the kill confirms tended to be a pain but overall each character has their advantages and disadvantages. This game somewhat reminded me of Super Smash Bros. Brawl so if you liked that game I would highly recommend All-Stars. I would actually recommend this game to anyone, it's very age-appropriate and it's a fun game to play at parties or with your friends and family!
