Ladies and gentlemen of the PlayStation Nation - are you ready to battle?!
On Tuesday, November 20 (mere days away!), Sony and SuperBot Entertainment will unleash the long-awaited crossover brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. This 2D fighter and franchise mash-up pits your favorite PlayStation heroes and villains against each other in a fight to crown the true PlayStation All-Star. With all manner of special moves, iconic items, and powerful attacks at your disposal, the sky's the limit as you tear through memorable stages and lay waste to the opposition.
Here at PSU Towers, we've been playing the full game in preparation for our review. We'll be able to share our thoughts with you very soon. On Tuesday, November 20, at 8:00 AM PST, our review of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale - both the PS3 and PS Vita versions - will go live. At that very moment, you'll find out everything - how does the final game stack up to the beta? Has SuperBot found the perfect mix of accessibility and arcade depth? Is PlayStation All-Stars just a glorified Smash Bros. clone?
We'll have these answers, and much more, in our review next week. In the meantime, we want your input on the topics the review should cover. Have a specific character you want to hear more about? Worried that the fighting mechanics of PlayStation All-Stars won't be up to snuff? Drop a comment below, and remember, we're here to help you.

I've played the beta and really enjoyed it! i'll be having the game day 1 in UK and will hang onto it forever! When they announce DLC's for it, the 1 character i hope they can manage to get who i want so badly is 'Klonoa' from Namco. i Enjoyed games of him on Ps1 & Ps2 and hope he'll return in the allstars..

Just give the game a good, honest review, if you think it's a 5.5, give it a 5.5. Some reviewers up the scores to avoid backlash from fans.
I am personnally not interested in this game, after playing the beta's on PS3/PS vita, as a fighting game it bores me,
And it doesn't have the characters I consider Playstation Allstars I.E Crash, Spyro, Snake.
May you please review the following aspects :Combat: are the characters more balanced, does the framerate ever drop ? Do you get cool items that add to the entire combat ? (The beta didn't show too many despite being insanely fun)Single player, what modes are available, how long are they, what is the point - iek do you unlock costumes, some gallery items etc etcMultiplayer - is it lag free ? Are their punishments for people rage quitting when they losingVita version vs the PS3 version - I only have a Vita and would just like to get a comparison on each of the versions :)Thanks :D Joined cause of this page, damn cool idea

I know it's mostly a MP game, but I'd like to know how significant SP is compared to MP. The variety of game modes within single player eg. Is it just all the same? Fight, get kills, scores tally at the end? Or are there occasionally different modes/challenges kind of like destroying the car/all the falling barrels in Street Fighter (but more substantial, those were kind of mini games).

I would like to see your guy's thoughts on how well they captured each character's movesets, sticking true to the characters or not? As well as a small point on how well you think all of the supers (lvl 1-3) are balanced. I know for me Kratos' level 3 super in the beta seemed a little OP, and Nariko's looks like a facepalm put the controller down moment.

I'm not a big fan of the way you have to get kills in this. Only specials being able to KO is kinda lame, Radec is also very broken. Other than that it is a decent game. I see it getting an 8 for the final product.

Would love to see you review the game based on what's there. This includes the characters, the UI (aesthetics as well as ease of use), the combat (balance, fun factor), single player content (arcade, combat trials), multiplayer, and replayability.
