Nintendo fans are going to go out of their way to trash the user scores. No way that information can be taken seriously. It will be interesting to see how an objective journalist with a bachelors degree will treat it, though. I have a feeling that for some, the style of writing will change from an expository/opinion essay to a compare/contrast with SSB.

if i may,

while you guys have listed the sites that support/oppose psasbr,

i'll post a different one,

my go to gaming website is gamesradar,

and from what i have read from them,

they are on the middle ground,

they had a hands-on preview of the game, and they said that the game,

where at first was considered a clone, was totally different from smash,

they even had an article about the benefits of being a clone,

but they also acknowledged that most people will probably still think that this game is a smash clone,

so from what i've been seeing from them, they're in the middle ground,

so i can see them giving an unbiased review....

Play For Fun!

I imagine GameTrailers will be favourable too considering they were picked to announce the game lol.

For most reviewers, a small amount of points will likely be lost on the small roster. However, I don't think that will impact the score much. It is much more likely to be affected by the comparison to SSB. We will likely see some reviewers posing questions regarding whether or not the gaming community "needed" something like this. If the reviewer believes the answer is no, then it's going to affect their score of the game heavily.

Lets face it, game will be better than awesome, but will get many bad reviews such as "Horrible Smash clone" or "My favorite character didnt get in so this game sucks reviews".

Don't be worried about user ratings on Metacritic. Most people know the user ratings just get spammed with butt-hurt fans.

It hurts to see it regardless. When I see LBP Vita for example getting unanimous love from all users on Metacritic, it feels good to know good games are getting the support they deserve.
