I personally prefer this game for a couple of reasons.
The stage design is more iconic of playstation games, crossovers are entertaining.
The characters while less well known are well portrayed and prove good representatives of their IP (even raiden)
Using supers instead of % to get kills allows for more of a risk/reward system, it also means that just because u can hit loads u automatically win.
In saying that smash does a few things better:
The items are more numerous and just more fun to use. (we need something similar to pokeballs and support trophies)
Story, hopefully in the sequel they will get this write.
Features (lightning, invisible brawl etc) All we have is 2 modes and item settings..
This is a very heavy opinion and some what factual
the reasonpeople think it is better then smash is because of combativeness when samsh was made they did want it to be competitive just fun all stars nt he other hand was made exactly for that reason to be competitive i personally still lovebral becuase it character we al wanted this game is some of teh character we wanted pus full blown adverisment for upcoming games
personally all-stars is better than brawl, but Meee remains Top-dog.
Story; i'd say Brawl has a good story (sort-of) but all-stars has better story that SSBM.
Gameplay: i like both but Brawl is pretty unbalanced because of that % system theres somebody that more OP than the rest *cough* Marth *cough* . PSASBR resembles any fighting games, theres always that oharacter who you know that will be most devastating *cough* Kratos *cough*.
Male fanservice; SSB TRIO, off the bat smash brothers has the best. Zero-suit samus, peach bo0ty slap and zelda wearing tight clothing when changing into sheik(Dat stance).
Female fanservice: Definately PSASBR, Face it we all know kratos, Nathan drake, dante, cole and raiden are the sexiest-dudes in videogames. Most costumes for those characters (especially kratos) are more favoured towards the female audience. Shoot imagine the amount of fanservice overload if Cloud ever gets in.
As someone who has spent summers playing smash, I couldn't help but compare All-stars to smash bros (i know, i know...you're not supposed to) when I first got it. There were actually a few things I was disappointed with:
a) The stages. Well, I think almost all of them are awesome (except that huge Twisted Metal stadium. But there were stages I didnt like in Brawl), but I was really disappointed by the low number PSASBR had to offer. Of course, that does not really matter anymore since the only real options now are Dojo and the rival stage.
b) The menu. Again, just a first-impression complaint. Now it gets me where I need to be.
c) The color selection. I'd love to see how the characters look before the match starts.
d) The singleplayer campaign. And that one's a big problem. Allstars single player mode is quasi a tutorial, not a story mode. I really expected more before going into it. The actual tutorial on the other hand was something i really liked. And in reality, multiplayer is where it's at.
e) The game mode options. I wish there would have been a health bar option (even Brawl has one), even if i probably didn't played it^^ It just would have been great to have an extra argument when defending this game.
f) and thats my biggest complaint: All my friends who I played smash with don't have a playstation 3, meaning I keep beating them at PSASBR!!! D:
Over all I'd say I've had more memorable situations with brawl, but for as it is right know, if I had three friends at my place, we'd prolly play All stars. You can tell from my list of complaints that I'm not too unhappy with the game
