I can honestly say that Playstation Allstars Battle Royale will be another poor mans version of brawl. Im sure anyone reading this will probably scroll down and say "A Nintendo fanboy that doesnt like a playstation game big surprise. Before you flame me Id like you to know that I have been watching the game closely and I was actually excited about this even thinking about buying a PS3 to play it. But over time I started to notice a problem that the developers hadnt noticed with the new combat system. Smash Brothers is a game about weakening the other players and diving in to the crowd to do a Smash move on the player with the most damage but Playstation Allstars is about earning AP by attacking the other players. This gives a huge advantage to characters such as Colonel Radec and Nathen Drake who can earn AP from almost anywhere in the arena because of long range attacks. Its also safe to say that when Radec or Drake have enough AP for a super theyll want to make that super count by getting as many kills as possible off one super by using it at a time when the other three are close to gather. So not only do Radec and Drake earn AP more easily but their ability to avoid being killed is better because they dont have to get in the crowd to earn AP unlike most of the melee characters that make up most of the roster. Ive only seen two matches with Radec and Drake were they were playing but didnt win. In one Radec never used his special. The other was because most of the players were too dumb not to get out of BigDaddys way allowing BigDaddy to earn all kinds of AP. To be fair Brawl is also very unbalanced but do you want to play a game like Allstars were the best strategy is to avoid charging into a crowd to get that kill.
