GameSpot reviews Super Smash Bros. Brawl

GameSpot writes: "With a bigger roster than ever, online multiplayer, and the ability to share screenshots, custom levels, and game replays with friends, Super Smash Bros. has never been better."

The Good
* Relatively lag-free online multiplayer
* The ability to share game replays, screenshots, and custom levels with friends
* A massive yet surprisingly balanced character roster
* Tons of ways to customize your matches
* A lengthy single-player adventure mode.

The Bad
* Some of the platforming stages in Subspace Emissary could have been done without
* Custom levels can't be used in online matches. (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii) 9.5/10

this isnt a sony game clown... this is a game made by the perfectionist at nintendo, while it deserves a 10, this review is not bad.
bigjclassic  +   2547d ago
Its not a 10 because..
its not HD!!

People like you are responsible for gaming nearly losing its soul.

Who cares if it looks a certain way, it's how it plays that matters.

Gamespot should go back to reviewing their games with other decimals than .5 and .0, example: 9.6.
miles-prower  +   2547d ago
not bad
this game is 10/10
TheForgotten0ne  +   2547d ago
Not 10.
It's easy why it's not a 10, they have two bad things. If a game is a 10, well it should be perfect! And with two things they think is bad, well then it's not perfect...
But 9.5 is damn good !
ChickeyCantor  +   2547d ago
wait, you are saying if a game gets a 10 then its perfect.....you do realize that some did give this game a 10...

its a matter of opinion, nothing is perfect, not even all those other games that got a 10.

The Smash is almost here !
The problems that they had with the game seem a bit too pickey to me atleast. The two that are noted are that you can't play with custom levels on-line. And some of the levels in the single player could have been done without ?

These two reasons don't seem like genuine problems but more of a wish list of sorts by the reviewer.

While we all know perfection is in the eye of the beholder for this type of game I really don't see how it could be any better.

The reviewer
Is terrible. He's just reading off a piece of paper and sounds like a robot
permutated  +   2547d ago
He pauses...like...this...at every...word...

Lol, dear gamespot, get a new editor.

Did they kill Ganon...
or what.

WTF no ganon = no thanks

The last Triple A of the wii. While the game is great, I have a hard time convincing myself to spend 250 bucks and 50 bucks for the console just for this game.
permutated  +   2547d ago

Goodluck finding a Wii anywhere for 250$.
Hentai  +   2547d ago
I thought this game would score lower because of no voice chat.
I was wrong. I'm looking forward to this title.
Filanime03  +   2547d ago
Imagine if brawl is a sony product Gamespoty would have given this game 7.5 no matter how good it is.
ReBurn  +   2546d ago
Which Sony games got a 7.5 that deserved a higher score? I would like to stack them up against this once I pick it up tomorrow.
jinn  +   2547d ago
should get a lower score
KingKirchner  +   2547d ago
9.5 is what i would give the game. It's amazing, but there's no way it could be a 10, because it has flaws. The online doesn't support any communication, there are clones (i.e. fox, falco, wolf), and the Subspace Emissary isn't all that great.

Don't get me wrong though, the game is amazing and 9.5 is still an incredible score.

The long-waited, most-hyped game of the year for wii is out. The sad part is that I don't have a wii but atleast my cousin does so I get to play on his Wii game system. Next thing we find out that on N4G: Super Smash Bros. Brawl SELLS A MILLION IN ONE DAY. This is the game of the year for wii and maybe that'll happen maybe it'll out sell Halo 3 in one day. Maybe...

this game shouldn't get ne thing above a 9 cuz it's just a minor upgrade from Melee....but hey I did enjoy Melee back in the day...it's getting way too high scores when hardly ne thing has changed...looks the same...just has online"limited options btw"..and a large roster...deserves an 8.5
JokerSGS  +   2546d ago
Picked it Up At Midnight
.... And I must say it's pretty fun. I really haven't played around with it to see how wavedashing and other things are working out but it looks like any lag there may have been in Melee from the controller to the actual action on screen has disappeared for the most part. Anyways its fun but I'm mad :spoiler: I had to unlock Capt. Falcon when we all know he should be in the starting lineup.
