1UP reviews Super Smash Bros. Brawl

By now you should all be familiar with the Super Smash Bros. formula: Mix basic platforming action with old-school, button-pressing, arcade-style combat while adding copious amounts of, oh, every Nintendo game ever made. With Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it's a fan-service smorgasbord at its glorious best, folding in not only all of the goodies that made it into the series' two previous iterations (Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee), but just about every bit of Nintendo lore that's surfaced between Melee's 2001 release and now. This includes appearances of hardcore, obscure stuff like Electroplankton and Sin and Punishment paraphernalia, Captain Olimar and his Pikmin, and just about any first-party Nintendo tidbit you can think of. For Nintendo fans, that's great stuff. The more the merrier. But how does the game balance out between the die-hard fans and the less committed?

The story is too old to be commented.

and I had no plans on getting one, but I have to check this game. I'm curious to see what all the fuss is about.

Truth be told, the last Fighter I played was VF5 and I left it because it lacked online.

I might have to pick up a Wii for this. Good show Nintendo, this game looks like its just pure fun.

Get the Xbox 360 of Virtua Fighter 5 if you want to play online.

VF5 is has lag-free online on the 360.

So does Street Fighter 3: Third Strike.

Good review, but why does 1up mention Halo and link it in some form or another in every damn review I read there? I understand the context in this case but it still rings true.

RecSpec3967d ago

It is part of their contract requirements.

good review. i still say any gamer that could play smash and not appreciate all the details and contents , is just a fanboy of another console mad that the wii is killing them in sales

I have 13 consoles (past and present), and this is one of most hyped games Ive been looking forward too. MGS4, SFIV, SoulCal4, SSBB are just some of the games that's going to drain away hours of my time.

People need to grow up, but its N4G, the immautre gamers paradise.
