PSAS doesn't need to beat Smash Bros. PSAS isn't even trying to beat Smash Bros. Two different games for two different target audiences (Sony and Nintendo gamers), with very little mixing room from the two.

That's completely true, but one can't not compare the two. The PSASBR reviewers will be comparing it to Smash Bros, which will prbably lower the review scores unfortunately.


Oh, believe me, this forum shall see my wrath the moment I see a reviewer downing the game in the official review because of SSB (whether it's because it's too much like it, or not enough, I don't care).  

 

But I'm talking about comparisons like one beating the other in my first comment.  No game exclusive to one console can ever truly beat one from another console, so saying one will come out victorious makes no sense.  SSB has its fans, PSAS has its, and they will debate until humanity's end which is better.  But neither will ever be definitively better.

And games will whine and moan about the reviews like they always do. I've played the beta, I think its great, not every reviewer will write it off just because its similar to smash bros. Some people find they like the gameplay more than smash bros, some people hate nintendo. It's all a matter of taste.

Could this be the birth of the next rivalry? Will PSAS vs SSB be up there with Mario vs Sonic, CoD vs BF or MGS vs SplinterCell?

Be on the lookout for Destructoid for a bad review. I know I am.

Honestly, I could care less if people give this game **bleep** reviews, so long as they do so for the game itself.  No game should ever get a bad, or good, review because of a comparison to another game, not unless the entire premise of the article is a comparison.  If I see GameInformer, and I almost know they will do this, giving the game a 7.5 because it "tries too hard to capture the magic of Smash Bros.", and it will be worded like that, I will flip **bleep**.  If this game is bad, fine, but it must be bad because of what it itself does wrong, not because of what another game does better.  It's not a reviewer's job to compare, and I've held a firm stance by this for years (more vocally since the bad reviews of Dante's Inferno that blamed it on God of War).

I hear ya. I read such bad things about Dantes Inferno, but got it regardless. I honestly like it better than God of War

There are times when comparison is appropriate, like when you're comparing two games in the same Franchise. Uncharted 2, and Uncharted 3. Adam Sessler at G4 gave 3 a 4/5 because he didn't think it was as good as 2. Thats a reasonable assertion. Saying "This game, that shares a premise with this other game, isn't as good because its made on a different system by different people and I don't like it because they aren't from my childhood."
