GameSpy reviews Super Smash Bros. Brawl

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. (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii) 4.5/5

Thank you Game spy for not getting swept up in the hype. I offer salutes. I have nothing against brawl but its hard to justify giving a sequel a 10 or a 9.5 even when it barely adds anything new in terms of gameplay.

True, and when did a 9 mean something bad anyways?

Technically there is nothing wrong with the game. They are down scoring because they dont want to upset people.

When its all said and done, the Wii will have the 2 highest scoring games this gen. SMG and SSBB, and other console loyalist will have to swallow that fact.

it doesn't really matta....a game like Smash Bros shouldn't even be rated by number scale...simply....a buy or don't buy.....and quite frankly it's a buy!

Greatest investment you can make on the Wii! nuff said!

I hate people that believe ANY game at all deserves a perfect score.

like omg I know dude!...I mean they should get rid of the 10/10 scale all together because there are no such things as good games and all hyped games should get like 5/10 because they are hyped and stuff!

btw... 10/10 does not always mean "perfect" just really good.
