weird thing, I had a friend who worked there and I talked to him about it and he said he was laid off 4 months ago and they pretty much gutted the company and kept few for DLC and then these are basically the dudes who got laid off today. And people ask me why I don't work in videogames anymore...

My condolences to those that got laid off. Hopefully they can find work soon.

Game is an utter #### stain. Played 15 minutes of it and proceeded to delete it. Menu, arcade mode, "final boss" just horrible quality.

They shouldn't be given another chance to make a game.

You played the single player and decided it was ####.

No Jizz Dagai, but name a good quality f!ghting game that has a #### single player mode, I'll wait. It doesn't even have cutscenes, just still pictures....just #### production quality which is why they are getting laid off.

Also online is nothing special, the overall feel of the game is just lacking.

Just isnt a good f!ghting game, different characters don't have different combos. The controls are all the same for every character. The #### kinda #### is that.

That's how you know you didn't play the game. Try using Raiden, and then using the same combos for Fat Princess. Not even Cole and Evil Cole function the same.

Oh, and SSB - Brawl had #### stories. Except for this scene

YouTube

All-Stars' single player was tacked on. It's all about the multiplayer with this game. I ran through the single player and almost quick after getting that platinum. It was horrible. Luckily I realized that the multiplayer was fun except a few imbalances. I'd suggest you re-download the game (since you bought it from psn) and try out the MP again, extensively.

Man wtf you talking about? You sure you played this?? I'm pretty sure Kratos doesn't play like Raiden or Radec. Stop spewing bs you sound ignorant. I'll say the presentation is low quality and lacking but the actual gameplay itself is alright. I went through a period of hating the game but I found myself playing it everyday on my Vita.

I hate when people get laid off, especially in the industry that I love....

But I called this #### 6-9 months ago.

I dont think you are Jizzman are understanding. In games like mortal kombat each character had their own combination moves with the controller to do its own unique things.

In allstars the controls are all the same for every character, they just superficially look different on the screen.

To make it more clear:

Down, towards square with subzero on MK might not do #### with skorpion.

On allstars, down, towards square is the same universal move for every character. This game is a$s cheeks and I've played it with trophies to prove.

MP brings nothing new to the table that I havn't seen before, there's no reason to "extensively" play it in order to enjoy something.....that goes for anything.

20 minutes with this game and you'll see why people are losing their jobs.

Again, that's not true. Forward squar for Kratos does an auto target chain pull towards you. The same with Cole either A) slides you across the ground which you can lead into a combo or B) Does Lightning Tether in the air and pulls you toward them for a combo. The same move with FP does nothing of note, just a standard attack. Nariko I believe does a cartwheel while twirling her swords. Radec is his knife blast which I believe hits you, teleports him behind you and then shoots you away which can then be comboed into his sniper move. Again, you clearly didn't play it enough to see any of this.


You didn't "play it". You played one arcade mode with Dante, did a tutorial and that was it.

The game is compete failure, as everyone predicted. Move on with your life and all of the losses you compiled in nearly a year promoting this game.

Everyone that knows anything about the industry knew it was a failure before it came out.
