After trying to watch four videos on gamespot now, i want to chop off all five of those thumbs Paul Rudd insists on telling me about.

I'm not even kidding.. the more I see of this the more I love it!!

 

An Uncharted based arena with Uncharted 3 soundtrack??  Then Raiden does his power move and everyone appears in boxes!?

 

What the hell.  The game is frickin genius.  Well looking forward to it! :D

Frankly, if it's as good as SSB, even if a ripoff, then I'd be happy to pick it up. A SSB-esque game on the PS3, with decent online compared to the Wii, would be MORE entertaining and competitive then SSB could be simply because of its console. 

 

This is not a bash on Wii either, its lack of dependable online functionality is fact. :)

When always an update of this game theres always a genius posting: Is a SSB rip off, Is SSB rip off i dont like it , whres my bottle.

Is the same to said that all the fps after doom are a ripoff

whar surprises me more is that this type of game wasnt release earlier;

everything about this game reminds me ssb and i dont like its style...very childish to me....they could have done something like urban reign or even power stone ...

To anyone saying this isn't a SSB copycat, it is. But that doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing. They're capitalizing off of the idea, although in my opinion they aren't doing it very well. The art styles of each character aren't really meshed as well as they are in SSB, this is evident by the fact that the screen is so zoomed out and isn't really giving 1 player a certain amount of attention.

 

In super smash bros, when all of the players are close the screen zooms in and gives you a more close view, while the view on this seems to be locked unless everyone moves too far form each other. Either that Or maps will only occupy the same screen, which means no zoom at all and playing from this forced prospective.

 

Another thing is... well. The concept. Sure other games have done it before SSB, but only SSB has done it in this grand scale. Bringing all exclusives under one console to a big fighting game together. In this same exact style too.

 

But enough about similarities, I also wanted to rant about the gameplay direction this game has taken itself.

 

Next is this forced special thing. One might argue that they would be copying Smash if they brought out arena block outs, but this forced way of fighting doesn't really let you vary. You can only really kill someone with one of the specials, where in smash you can KO someone with a variety of moves, specials OR items. In this it's just a beatdown to get your special bar and use specials, nothing but to specials to win. While it sounds like a the perfect rat race, it also sounds like it will get boring fast, and most people will know what to expect.

 

Theres where level 3's come in. Anyone with patience knows that level 3's are pretty much unavoidable, and this game doesn't seem to have a proper blocking/dodging mechanic like SSB does. It seems like once you get caught in the radius of any special you're doomed.

This is a blatant copy of super smash brothers...it's just not gonna happen for me. I am the only one of my friends that owned a play station and played the crap out of it and still do to this day but this is just...pathetic.  Too little too late.  I dont really buy ps3 games anymore.  More of a microsoft fan now, they killed armor core and a dynasty warriors early on.

I like this uncharted level... It should Crash at the end of the level though!

Great Raiden's in there, that means Solid/Old Snake will be slipping in sometime soon, right?!?!?!

They should have made it so that when Raiden dies, colonel or rose should shout RAIDEN! (or JACK! for rose).

I'm liking this ...uncharted level? Watching this, I think I'm always gonna like Smash better. I know most of these PlayStation guys, but I just love Nintendo characters and I like knockin everybody off the platforms better I think. I'm getting this game no matter what though

from what i have seen.. this game is pretty different from what ssb is... in fact i have seen some stuff that make it different. First of all it has a slowet pace and its gameplay (i mean combos and stuff) its a lot different from its nintendo "equal" nevertheless this game is going to be great.

Its very original and has taken only a few characteristics from ssb, the caracter recopilation and the guest characters is one of them, also, they took the final smash concept and made what i think is called a finish putting it in three different levels each one being more powerful that its predecesor 

Im looking foward to this game and i will do anything to try to preorder it, if not, i will surely buy it and play the crap out of it

A super-smash brothers-esque game that isn't quite like super smash brother but has PS3 graphics.  Nuff said.  Does anyone need any other reason to play this game?

 @warhawk-geeby Should be amazing but the genius part came from Nintendo's super smash bros which I love so I can't wait to play this too.

>> Apparently you didn't watch much of the video. Check it out from around 4:15 on. The camera zooms way in just like SSB when they are all close together.

 @davidsworld3 i would apreciate if you red my last comment i think it will explain why its not just a ssb copycat... btw by that theory of yours mortal kombat is a street fighter copycat (i personally dont know which was first or when the first fighting game came out) and also COD, Battlefield, medal of honor... all of them are wolfestein 3d's copicat

just sayin...

 @aoikagenazomax That because Smash Bros resolve around knocking you opponents. You can't do combos when you keep knocking them away. This game only heavy attacks knock them away like traditional fighting game. Super Smash Bros. is different it will only work with certain movesets at the right time and percentages.

A good third-party roster that doesn't consist of playable advertisements would be nice.

 @Antagonist8503 i think its good to see Sony have a sense of humor !! No seriously i agree pointless to us hardcore gamers but a good thing that they are thinking about the younger gamer and competing the obvious market. But yeah i wont be buying it.

 that is an interesting thought, I couldn't get into this game as well because the characters are all wierd, but I am glad that it generates this much interest.

 @alpha_unit97  @GamespotSux_IKR The main components of the level that forms the platforms is from Uncharted 3, but I think the floating city in the background and the Zeppelin are from Bioshock Infinite.

 @djmaster1994  @aoikagenazomax this game doesnt focus on HP its all about AP which is what you get from fighting to help you build up to supers which is the ONLY way to kill in this game. makes me happy cause it means people cant just avoid your attacks to kill you like in SSB :)

aoikagenazomax

 @djmaster1994 i think this one focuses on hp... i really dont know but at first sight the only thing it takes from ssb is the 4 player action gameplay oh and the crossovers
