Re: name the pros and cons of this game.

Pro's - Sony finally has a smash-esqu game that i can play for years, until the sequal. Nice roster variety for launch, online plays smoothly for the most part

 

Cons - menu is presented in a rather..overly compacted way. it makes you feel liek the game has little to offer.

PROS:

 

1. Solid and addictive combat style.

2.  Runs very smoothly.

3.  Very diverse cast with extremely different styles.

4.  Plain fun.

 

CONS:

 

1.  Presentation makes the game look undercooked and "cheap."

2.  Bugs still remain online.

3.  Not enough unlocks for things like poses, taunts, intros and outros.  Need more to aim for when playing.

4.  Some obvious balancing still needed for some character's AP gain (e.g., Sackboy) and some supers (e.g., Sly Cooper's level 1 being uninterruptable with a huge range)

5.  Would like a larger cast of unique characters from Playstation past, not just characters with games coming out soon or out in the last year.

6.  Need more fun and unique modes to shake things up (e.g., capture the flag?)

7.  Little effort seems to have been put in arcade mode (e.g., still picture intros and outros with little to no story attached to the characters)

Pros:

Good Gameplay

Hades-Patapon mashup

Franzea

Stowaways

Drake-Sly rivalry

Cole-Raiden Rivalry(although the escalation of it is a bit weird)

Characters mostly retain elements from their games.

 

Cons:

Undeveloped stories

Undeveloped final boss

Stupid reasons for most rivalries

Inconsistent music- The main theme is good, but the music starting at 21 seconds in this video sucks. The music for Stowaways(both the uncharted and bioshock music), for the Columbia stage(both the bioshock and twisted metal music),  and for the killzone music for the Dojo are awesome. But I think the music sucks for Invasion.

Menu, credits, and the whole presentation scream low budget.

I agree that the game, overall, looks low-budget. Especially considering the stupid amount of Sony money behind this, everything should pop like other multimillion dollar games.

Pros:

- Very Distinctive characters that all play very uniquely

- Very original gamplay style and Super System

- 4 Player endless fun

- Cross Play

- Online and Offline play at the same time

- TONS of unlockables

- Awesome final boss

- Great Customization and Costumes

- TONS of combat trials

- Free Vita copy

- Free DLC

 

Cons:

- Only FFA and 2v2 Ranked

- Very limited matchmaking options (also no lobbies)

- Arcade mode is very boring

- Bland Menus

- 2 Coles (despite them playing differently)

- Inbalanced (MANY characters have spammy attacks that have too much AP gain)

- Too fun

 

It's by far not a perfect game, and there is lots of room for improvement. That being said, it's still a fantastic game, with REALLY addicting couch multiplayer. I play it a ton with my roommates, and hope to continue playing day after day after day. It's really fun that I can play 2v2 with my roommate, but I wish that we could just grab some random person online to fill my 4th player spot when me and my 2 roommate play. or something like that.

Re: name the pros and cons of this game.

Pros:

 

- Fun game with friends

- Fast to learn, slow to master

- Most of the roster is well done 

- Nice stages (not all of them though)

- Works well online

 

Cons:

 

- Some incredibly bad and lame roster choices

- Some OP characters

- Arcade/story mode boring as **bleep** and with cheap cutscenes

- Unreasonable lack of interesting unlockables

- Dino (yeah he counts twice)

- Dino's alternate "costumes" (yep)

- Technically is not really impressive as it could

 

Overall, my rate would be 7, 7.5 maybe because with friends it's actually better than I expected, still Smash Bros. is more fun though.
