A Nine Year-Old's Review Of 'Super Smash Bros. Brawl'

MTV Multiplayer writes: "We don't normally review games here at Multiplayer, but this time we made an exception.

On Friday, I dealt with a moral dilemma: should I lend my early copy of "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" to a co-worker, whose nine year-old was having a Saturday night birthday/slumber party? Or should I take it home for myself and finally enjoy the game we've all been waiting years for?

The Review:

"This game is awesome because you get to play as cool characters and the arenas rock. My favorite part has so far been fighting the hand. I love the graphics and the fact that you can pause, zoom and take photos of the screens. There are a lot of characters, it's great fun. You can play for a long time without getting bored." (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii) -

Just the type of review you would expect from a 9 year old.

Best review so far. At least he writes in a language understood by his peers and it would prove very effective to parents wondering if their kids will like it.

This is probably the most relevant review out there since most of the people playing the Wii are 9.

Heh, these comments are all right, even if a little contradictory sometimes.

What a 9 year old thinks of SSBB is actually quite relevent, since kids his age have all sorts of time to play games, and thus may be very well experienced. Then again, his breadth of games is probably shallow, and his cognitive processes have yet to be fully developed to look beyond shiny graphics and characters he identifies with, so in the end I'm not sure if I can take his word for it. I'll just go to Metacritic or Gamerankings.

This is like a kid telling me a cheeseburger from McDonalds is better than a medium-rare cowboy ribeye from Ruth's Chris. They're both good in their own way, but I'll take the PS3/360, oops I mean ribeye any day

they dont have medium-rare cowboy ribeye from Ruth's Chris
in the UK. sounds nice apart from that medium rare stuff. Good point anyway. When I was a kid I used to love things that I hate now and vice versa

The complete opposite of the "Mortal Combat Murder". Seriously.

I remember being 9. It would have been 1993/1994. I would have been playing Sonic 3, Donkey Kong Country, Street Fighter and Streets of Rage 2.

It's good to see that you don't have to be old or the nostalgic type to enjoy Smash Bros. I really feel for kids his age. To think they probably only started gaming in the GC/PS2 or even this gen. They can't fully appreciate the significance of Sonic and Mario together in a fighting game, or 90% of the in game references.

You really had to be alive at the time.
