The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #3: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

It's that time again! Michael Buble's smooth voice serenades us over the radio with his brilliant rendition of "Let it Snow." Houses are covered with bright lights, tinsel, green and red colours. Children anxiously count down the days, hoping they were good enough for a visit by Santa.

It's a magical time, with one other little benefit - most of us also have breaks over Christmas. Breaks means time to play games!

It has been a great year for games, and no doubt there are some great ones that you've missed. And so we at Digitally Downloaded will count down to Christmas with one game recommendation for you each day.

Enjoy, and happy holidays!

Family get-togethers are an inevitable part of Christmas. That means multiplayer games are the first point of call for many gamers over the Christmas season. For many years that has meant the Nintendo Wii and Mario Smash Brothers. Now there's a new challenger in the multiplayer brawl arena, and is it ever fine. 

All-Stars Battle Royale does enough new stuff to the formula to ensure it is a completely different game with its own spirit and style. There's a great line-up of characters, so everyone in the family will be able to find a favourite, and it's accessible enough that, even after you've hit the eggnog you're going to have a great time with it.
