Super Smash Bros. Brawl isn't a giant leap forward from Super Smash Bros. Melee, but it didn't have to be. This is going to be the game that Wii owners will be playing for the life of the system, and they're going to love every minute of it. While the single-player stuff, and in particular the story mode, don't do much to improve upon the core appeal of the game, the actual fighting is just as much fun as ever. If the community takes off, online play will keep this one on your Wii long after your friends have gone home for the night. Super Smash Bros. Brawl's unmatched four-player action once again redefines the party game, proving that you don't need a collection of mini-games to have a great time.
