Brawl finally poured in from import game shops into many Wii systems from overseas. Amongst them was a loyal friend to us, one who was kind enough to send along an invite to come over and kick some Nintendo-licensed butt with a few friends.
Graphically, Smash Bros. Brawl looks spectacular. Some of the backgrounds are simply stunning, like the Green Valley Zone stage (complete with trademark loop in the distance) and Solid Snake's winter warehouse setting. There are a bounty of others available, both classic (the island town from Super Mario Sunshine) and captivatingly new (an enormous space battle inspired by StarFox).
It's also worth mentioning that you haven't lived until you've busted Solid Snake's ass in the Green Valley Zone using Diddy Kong and a pair of banana blasters. 'Nuff said for now.
