Though its fast-paced, four-player beat-em-up gameplay is very similar to the Smash Bros. franchise, Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale is nowhere near the attempted knockoff I expected it to be. That’s not to say that it’s a better game, or worse for that matter. It just has a significant difference in execution. It’s essentially a full-blown fighting game, with combat combos and arcade and versus modes, but allowing up to four players and with Smash Bros.-style objectives and single player trials… and Master Hand-like main boss. Sadly, the single player is nowhere near as fun as multiplayer along with friends.
