IGN: Super Smash Bros. Brawl Review

Nintendo's epic 3D fighter series arrives on Wii as the best iteration yet. It's true -- there are a few minor quibbles to be made about the sometimes-repetitive single-player mode, unexplored third party character additions, lacking online communication options, or the largely familiar content inherent to sequels. But the moment you gather together with friends for a multiplayer match only to find, several minutes later, that you still haven't blinked, you'll have taken your first step into the digital drug that is Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and there's really no better way to describe it.

Seems Nintendo have another 1st party hit on their hands!

This is one of only a few WII games that appeals to me.

No kidding. I'm on the fence on whether to buy a Wii just for this game or not.

I can't believe it. This game utilizes ZERO wiimote functionality (i.e. motion sensing), so why not release it on the GameCube too, like they did with Zelda?

Regret4190d ago

I never really liked it... Only game that appeal me is Metroid, same as on GC.

ChickeyCantor4190d ago

...the reason ZELDA was released on the gamecube was because it was meant for the GAMECUBE, and when the Wii came allong they made a port to the Wii. Not the other way around.

And nintendo never said you should FORCE games to use motion.

DGDJB4189d ago


actually the game does have motion sensing, if you use the wiimote+nunchuck controller, u can turn on the option to swing the wiimote up down left right, for smashes.
been playing the jap version for awhile now, this it the only wii game that im interested in.

Durffen4189d ago

There is motion sensing. It's called Shake Smash. It was in one of the screenshots for one of the Dojo updates. I'm not quite sure how it works though.

Bubble Buddy4189d ago

Same with me, Wii might be worth it for some casual games and this.

March 9th isn't coming fast enough. I hope they ship my preorder at midnight or else Monday will be the longest day ever.

paul_war4190d ago

Enjoy it, I'll be here waiting till its pall release of 3Q!

That what the call it on the Streets now~a~days? Anyways SSBB has always been a awesome Series! I'm a little surprise they haven't tried to Duplicate this on other systems! I remember when MarioParty 1st started its series, than Sonic tried to Duplicate it on the Geneses, lasty PS2 tried it on PAC~MAN FEVER! adding Tekkens King, Eddie Goro & Heiachi as well as other PSX favorites, an that blew up in Techmo's Face!

Only if Capcom would include characters like it does with other fighters, like SNK, Marvel and so on..Imagine, as well as the Graphics compared to a Gamecube hardware.

I'll get this for the Wii and see how it is, if this was a game that was made on Next-gen hardware, all the little Quibbles, they talk about, would be magnified.

wiizy4190d ago

i dont agree with the ign rating...i've played alot of games and this game does not deserve less then a 10 or 100 on any sites.. its just that huge and has that much content , such a great game.. 9.5 should be reserve for lesser games like halo and metal gear.

Night4ll4190d ago

That wasn't very nice... we're gamers people... play nice!

desolationstorm4190d ago

Its got good reviews rolling in from all over. Lowest has been 93, but people are gonna rate it what they rate it. No games perfect, but jsut the sheer amount crammed into this disc is crazy cant wait to get my hands on it.
