Sony Smash Bros. Tries Something new but Ultimately Falls Flat.
Going into this game i didn't know what to think. It seems like a blatant copy of the popular Super Smash Bros. series, however they do some things that make it unique, perhaps too unique. The main problem with this game is that most of its ads has been positioning this game as a party game. This is false advertising. What is the main thing to having a party game? Simplicity this game has none of that. Instead of beating somebody up and them dying you have to use one of your 9 moves to gain some super meter (Each of which is unique to each character) and knock someone out in order to gain to points. (if you die you lose 1)
If you go solo and learn each character (which isn't very fun) you will quickly realize the main problem with this game, the combat is slow and clunky you will find yourself constantly hitting the button 2 or 3 times before you even manage to get the move you want to hit.
I can't imagine this game has any staying power when it comes to competitive gaming, as for whether i would recommend it or not...... I wouldn't i just don't think it's very good it doesn't please anybody on either side. Whether you're looking for a fun party game or you like Super Smash Bros. i don't think you'll have a very good time.
