Netjak: Super Smash Bros. Brawl Review

Netjak writes: "You want to know why it took us this long to get a review of Super Smash Bros. Brawl? We were all too busy playing it. Seriously. That alone might tell you how good of a game it is. However, if that was really sufficient, I'd just leave it at that and make you wonder why the scores are the way they are. As a video game site, we owe you an explanation. Particularly since the score is not nearly as high as I'm sure everyone expects. But look on the bright side – we didn't let the site founder review Brawl. We still hear complaints about when Search reviewed Super Smash Bros. Melee.

So anyhow, once again we have the third game that finally let people settle the ancient argument over whether Link or Mario was the better hero. The concept is really that simple – take classic Nintendo characters, and have them beat the living daylights out of each other. The gameplay is deliberately meant to be simple – all moves are done by nothing more complex than pressing a direction on the analog stick along with an action button – this game is born for people who don't want to cramp their hands playing a fighting game." (Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii) 9/10
