Super Smash Bros is one of those videogame series where the stories tell themselves. The comebacks are real, the fluky one-hit wonders tarnish reputations and even the most solid of friendships can be made or broken on a single press of the B button. Muster a group of 8 people together who have no idea what they’re doing and they’ll have just as much fun, if not more, than 2 seasoned vets going toe-to-toe in a tense deathmatch.
The joy of Smash is that it fits any occasion (“An 8-man smash? Ambassador, you’re spoiling us.”) and welcomes all playstyles. It is bright, colourful, exciting and addictive. It’s also full of frustrations, difficulty spikes and what can most accurately be described as ‘stuff’, but then this is Super Smash Bros - and [The Metropolist] wouldn't have it any other way.
