Roster is kinda meh right now, and the stages looked pretty washed out and bland. I'm not really a fan of them mixing different games together for the stages either. Sony doesn't have the same level of iconic recognition that Nintendo has for a lot of its series, so it just comes off muddled IMO.
I still think the game has potential, hopefully the cast can be the stand out. Though honestly, I can't really think of too many Sony characters that I really need to see. :/
I think people are surprised because how much this looks like SSB. At least for me, I thought it was going to have massive differences from the game it's inspired from but that didn't turn out from at least the footage I saw >>
There's really not much to say about this game. Balancing all these very tonally diverse franchises seems to have caused Superbot to go for a muted colour scheme, and it looks very ugly. Parappa's inclusion is cool. Other than that, uh...it looks just like Smash Bros,.
Part of my issue with the game is that there doesn't seem to be any cohesion...the characters in Smash might come from drastically different games but they made them all use a common style. Yeah stages varied but the characters all looked like they belonged in the same game, even Toon Link but this, there's just too much clashing visually
Oh and I had the shine outlining all of them. Looks bizarre and makes them standout even more
Yeah I know, but it'd be better to adjust the background to make them visible without it. It's like those games where key items have to shimmer or shine because they couldn't think of better ways to make them visible out of everything else
Crash Team Racing was awesome, but it was made by ND. These guys don't have a proven track record, and the game definitely has some underwhelming visuals. The last Smash Bros game I played was on the N64, so I'm not sure if this game is really for me.
This is the main problem. Almost every post about this game from now until release is going to be either "Smash has this and this so obviously Battle Royale will do it just as well or better" or "Smash has this and this and Battle Royale sucks because it will never be Smash" or some variant of the two.
This game will forever be linked to Smash Bros much like Battlefield 3 was to COD
