PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (originally titled as: Title Fight) is crossover fighting game developed by SuperBot Entertainment and SCE Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Why It Rocks

  1. Awesome music, such "Finale" by Madeon from both trailer and intro.
  2. Great looking graphics and models like the characters and stages that it shared the looking from the games.
  3. It features numerous PlayStation characters in many series from God of War, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, PaRappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper, Metal Gear, and many other characters that are either playable, or just appear as background characters in stages.
    • All actors and actresses reprise their roles for their respective characters on the roster, except Nariko and Jak (who are voiced by Jennifer Hale and Josh Keaton respectively, instead of Anna Torv and Mike Erwin respectively).
  4. The game was very similar to the Super Smash Bros. series, but it has different game mechanics like button action inputs and super levels which really work for a PlayStation fighting game. This alone makes the game feel like less of a Smash Bros. clone, since it does its own spin.
  5. The Super levels are references to each characters' home game. For example:
    • Heihachi Mishima strapping his opponents to a rocket, similar to his ending in Tekken 5.
    • Kat transforming into her Panther mode, just like she did at the end of Gravity Rush.
    • Raiden finding his opponents hidden under cardboard boxes, as he and Snake do in the Metal Gear series.
  6. It was the only non-Smash Bros. video game that you can turn off or on the stage hazards.
  7. The former PlayStation mascot Polygon Man has resurfaced as the final boss in arcade mode, which was a clever, yet unexpected comeback.
  8. The stages have been combined with other PlayStation series like Hades stage from God of War with Patapon, Dojo from PaRappa the Rapper with Killzone and Franzea from LocoRoco with Metal Gear which it was an smart decision.
  9. In arcade mode, you can battle your character's rival, such as Kratos vs Sweet Tooth, Jak and Daxter vs Ratchet and Clank or even Sly Cooper vs Nathan Drake.
    • Each rivalry is not only given an explanation in universe, but they are also connected in some way, like Jak and Ratchet being prominent PS2 characters created by studios that worked closely together and referenced one other in each other's games.
  10. If you own a copy for the PlayStation 3, you get a free download code for the PlayStation Vita version.

Bad Qualities

  1. Balancing issues like Kratos is overpowered and Sir Daniel is under-powered with slow movement.
  2. The introduction and ending cut-scenes in arcade mode are only still images. (only Kat's story is presented differently, and she's DLC)
  3. Incredibly similar to Super Smash Bros., Evil Cole was an clone of Cole MacGrath, much like how Luigi is a clone of Mario.
  4. Not many stages.
  5. Unlike Super Smash Bros. it has lack of contents where it only had: Single player for each characters in arcade or challenge mode, Multiplayer for online/offline matches and customization for your fighters like profile pic and background.
  6. Despite Polygon Man finally got his first video game appearance. He didn't do anything where he let the other fighters (known as Polygonal All-Stars) destroy the player while he could transformed into various stage hazards (except for Carmelita Fox, Buzz, Metal Gear RAY, MAWLR, Dr. Nefarious and Songbird) for attack, after the fighters is gone he will just slam his head at the stage. He keeps doing the same thing about three times.
  7. Missing characters from other popular PlayStation games like: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII (he was eventually added to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as DLC two years later then reprise in Ultimate) and Rayman.
    • Abe from the Oddworld series and Dart Feld from The Legend of Dragoon were going to be as DLC, but sadly they never appeared when SuperBot Entertainment was closed.
    • Though SuperBot confirmed that Crash Bandicoot and Spyro could be in the game but Activision (owners of both properties) declined.
  8. Originally, Solid Snake and the original incarnation of Dante was going to be featured as fighters. But both Konami and Capcom has declined but they decided to let them added Raiden and reboot incarnation of Dante. (although, Dante in this has retains some personality traits from his original incarnation)
  9. Online servers are laggy, sadly it was announced by Sony where on October 15th, 2018 then later been delayed and changed to January 31st, 2019, the online servers were supposed to be discontinued along with the 2012 reboot of Twisted Metal and Warhawk, meaning, the online matches are no longer available and cannot getting online achievements for 100% completion.
    • Even since PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale online servers is shut down, the fandom found the way to play together is Parsec.
