Review by Patrick Coakley:
"Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a vastly improved entry into the venerable series, and it is great to see Nintendo not sitting back and releasing a "Melee 2.0". Instead, a new approach was taken, and everything about the past two games that made the series so enjoyable was increased exponentially, and thus making it a much more enjoyable game. This is the game to buy a Wii for, folks. Super Mario Galaxy may not have been that game, but this one definitely is. Brawl is easily the most fun I've had on a Wii, and could be the most fun I've had with a game in ages. It's just that good. There is just so much to do, and so many different and refreshing things added that it would be a crime not to at least take a look."
