Yeah, it's pretty awful, and that's being generous.
Between the failed combat system that has you repeating the same kill move over and over, the crappy roster with advertisement characters and even the same character included multiple times (lol) with no RPG reps at all, to the menus that look like they were made in Powerpoint by a 12-year-old, to the "final boss" that (as far as I know) can't even hit you, to the endless laundry list of gamebreaking bugs/glitches, to the lack of character balance... well you get my point.
PSA:BR should have been a $20 PSN title from the start, in my opinion. charging 60 for it was frankly a scam, and the consumers let Sony know for sure. now SuperBot is out of a job.
I've never even heard of this game until now. Judging by the screen shots, it looks like a pretty failtastic Smash bros rip off.
Then you're a pretty failtastic reviewer, because you should know it plays NOTHING like Smash Bros and certainly is no more of a rip-off than Crash Team Racing is to Mario Kart.
Word of advice - play a game before opening your mouth.
the crappy roster with advertisement characters
Again, why does everyone hate the roster when only a few of the characters are advertisements? They have all of Sony's big-names. I assume you must consider Smash Bros' roster to be "crappy" because it has Mario, Link, Kirby and Pikachu, then?
it all depends on the expectations of the game company. Xenosaga which I loved was considered a flop even though it sold millions of copies. 85k is actually pretty bad when it comes to sales for a game, especially one that was being so advertised.
