EDGE REVIEW: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Edge writes: "If there's one thing Super Smash Bros Brawl has going for it, it's that it's got lots of things. Loads of them.

It's the obsessive-compulsive of the fighting genre, on the outskirts of the specialist market with a big smile and a bulging rucksack. Brawl aims to be nothing less than the most complete installment of Super Smash Bros, a fighting game of huge depth, and in addition provide a surfeit of sickly sweet treats for the videogame brand fans. Further dancing around the issue does it a disservice: it achieves this, and then some. Super Smash Bros Brawl has the kitchen sink, all right, but it's pretty much got the rest of the house hidden in there as well.

Generosity isn't a word often associated with videogames or, indeed, Nintendo. Brawl dares you not to use it. It's creaking under the weight of its content, rammed to bursting with modes, options, trophies, stickers, music, levels, and demos. It's hard to know where to start – even existing modes are significantly improved with considered changes: event mode, for example, now has separate difficulty levels and can be attempted in co-op." (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii) 9/10

That was a pretty bad review. They did not even mention online play and gave the game a 9 for trivial faults which most people will not agree with anyway. They also failed to comment on this game's perfect soundtrack.

all in all it wasnt a bad review although i feel this game deserve a perfect score on contents alone... its good to see alot of reviews saying how much better this game is then melee. cause there are alot of people that never even own melee saying that melee is better then brawl and thats just moronic,.

This game has so much in it. If you spent time just perfecting your game on each character it would take months not to mention all the other content to play around with.

Online play is great except when you hit lag :(
