PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale
PlayStation All-Stars lets players pick from several dozen popular characters from the PlayStation 3's line up and battle against each other in all out brawls. Each character has their own special moves, and the game's arenas are inspired by various PlayStation titles.
Read on Mike Kayatta's full preview of PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale here.
Mike Kayatta's : Fighters have three basic moves at their disposal: heavy, quick, and unique. Performing these in the air, or while moving in a certain direction can sometimes cause variations, but the idea is almost always the same. As players wail on one another, meters beneath their names begin to fill. Each bar represents a player's ability to perform a super move, the one major deviation from the Smash Brother franchise. Instead of battling down an opponent's resistance to gravity to eventually knock them from the stage, only these super moves can score the kills. Each has three levels to build toward, requiring one bar per. As you can probably imagine, they vary in both range and effectiveness as the levels grow, moving from something akin to a simple body-length punch, to summoning a gigantic chicken ten times your size that insta-kills anything that comes in contact with it.
