At the very least, Gamedaily can say, "Thank you, Nintendo" for giving them the most thoughtful Smash Bros. entry to date with Brawl. Yeah, the graphics don't really go too far forward, the online options could've been less strenuous, and the load time could've been cut back.
Regardless, there's still far greater good here than Gamedaily could've ever expected from the game. The gameplay options and customization features are very user-friendly; the presentation (for the most part) is marvelous; and the barrage of single-player and multiplayer options will keep you playing for weeks, months, even years. Enough talk – get yourself a copy and get ready for some of the best fights of your life. 9/10
