Hey, so was the character section just those four characters? And when you chose one did it automatically make the cpus choose the other three?
Yeah just those four characters, and once you picked who you wanted the CPU played as the others, no dupicate characters.
I posted some impressions at Gamefaqs yesterday of my time playing the demo thought I would share it with you fine folks herre as well.
The Gamestop in Mall of America, Minnesota had the demo there to my surprise, really wasn't expecting it. I must of play at least 12 or more matches really awesome experience since this was my first time ever playing the game.
The game was labeled Playstation All Stars Demo Kiosk and it featured Jak & Daxter, Big Daddy, Kratos, and Parappa in a 3 minute free for all against CPU's (another user could have play as well). I mostly used Jak and Big Daddy since I like those characters the most.
First, the demo just throws you in there and not really telling you how to play so when I first used Jak I got my **bleep** handed to me, it took me until the third match to get use to the game mechanics but once you do the CPU is pretty manageable and you can easily destroy the CPU using Kratos since he is really good too good actually.
As for the characters Jak is not a pick up and play character, I can see some newbies getting turned off from his zoning keep away tactics he isn't a long range character but certainly not close range either. After using Jak for a few times I got use to him and was able to hold my own but I still don't feel confident with him. Jak builds up AP fast and his level three is really amazing I would say it has the potential to be the most visually appealing super in the game.
Second, character I used was Big Daddy and he is another character that takes some time to get used to, I only won one match when using him. However, I can say yes he is a slow but he is pretty awesome and I love his moves. His charge move is his bread and butter since it lets him move quicker and some of his plasmid moves really help stabilize characters. I never got to see his level 3 since his builds meter really slow after level two.
Last thing I will mention for now is that CPU Kratos is kind of tough manly because he only uses his level one and at really unpredictable times. Many of the CPU characters only used level one supers but I feel that might only be because the match was three minutes.
Here is a some quick notes for those who don't want to read all of that:
1) Demo was at Mall of America Gamestop.
2) Featured Big Daddy, Jak & Daxter, Kratos, and Parappa the Rapper.
3) Only featured two stages, Hades and Metropolis.
4) Free 4 All against CPU's 3 Minute match
5) CPU opponent's mostly used level 1 supers and put up a respectable challenge.
6) CPU Kratos is truly the a God of War really unpredictable and hard to tell when he is going to use his level 1 super, I am assuming that might change the more you get use to the game.
7) Jak's level 3 awesome very satisfying super.
I have more I could say but if anyone want's to ask more questions let me know.
Thanks for the input, Im a true J&D fan. I love and play his games all the time. I wasnt going to get PSASBR is Jak wasn't in it. I know all his moves names, gun names, melee names. Basically everything about jak. You just made me look even more forward to expecting him and you also inspired other ppl, great job. Its about time we here some more abot Jak. He is a very underrated character.
