This game has gone beyond my expectations. I love the infinite avoidance system and supers vs Smash's ring out percentage style. I used to main sly but it wasnt until i tried parappa that i learned more about the I.A.S. which makes the game much more combo friendly but not too combo heavy and it was so gratifying each time i reached the AP threshold.
And real talk Sniper, nariko had one game if another game does come out GREAT because i loved heavenly sword. i just hope the story is in no fashion a replica of GoW. she deserves her own epic storyline.
I love what it has become and I do think that they have dug into the past console generation with character, although new gen is senn more in the roster, psone has spike and sir dan and parrapa sweet tooth( crash and spyro) ps2 jak ratchet sly kratos and ps3 drake radec cole sackboy and fat princess. I am aware some characters have been in newer consoles but I place them at their starting point
This roster is more than I could have asked for except the three which I fuly believe are just yet to be revealed
Until the roster is fully revealed I say we don't make any rash judgments on it. I think we have some heavy hitters coming soon.
As for PS1 characters not showing up, I think it is for the crowd today to see the most recent characters and be drawn in that way. You'll recognize Kratos and Drake quickly.
I think we'll get some PS1 guys as DLC which I would buy with no hesitation. But we are getting a good amount of big names soon. I'm expecting to see Big Boss, Crash, Cloud/Lightning, Ico/Yorda, Nathan Hale, and Kat to still be announced. Also I think we have 2-4 stages that no one knows about yet.
Its too early to tell, we still don't know everything about the game to make an accurate judgement. I will say that i'm liking it so far and am hoping for it to get even better in the future
Gameplay wise, it's looking great. Roster wise, it's okay. A bit underwhelming but with more character reveals to come and so many of the expected characters already revealed, it can only get better.
IMO, I think that having Sweet Tooth in the game helps with supporting all generations because Twisted Metal even though a new game was recently released is still one of the longest running Playstation series, its been on each system (I think) PSX, PS2, PS3, and PSP... But I do agree the roster needs more characters that would inspire nostalgia, such as Tomba, Jersey Devil, and Blasto.
