Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Review - IGN

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Smash Bros. done right, and done bigger than ever before.

The story is too old to be commented.

when was the last time Nintendo published game got low scores which has Mario as protagonist? Their frist party is unmatched in terms of quality. I am not sure if Sony's first party is better or Nintendo's...

Both are great at what they release. Quality can’t really be argued but preference can. If you like fun lighthearted family friendly games that focus more on gameplay than story , Nintendo is for you. If you love mature story driven games , PlayStation is for you. Personally I love variety so I get the best games on all platforms. Also exceptions can also be made for 1st party games because Sometimes Nintendo releases story driven games (Xenoblade Chronicles 2) and PlayStation sometimes releases family games like Little Big Planet

@jaymacx - totally agree. Why not enjoy the best of both worlds and own both systems. This way you know you are getting flat out amazing first party content no matter where you look.

It's hard to compare the 2 because Nintendo and Sony make totally different types of games. They contrast well off of each other.

deafdani7d ago

1. Mario isn't Super Smash Bros' protagonist. He's just one of the many characters in there.

2. There are plenty of games with Mario as the main character, or with Mario on its name, with mediocre to outright bad review scores. Having Mario on it guarantees sales, not critical acclaim.

Mario tennis aces got just ok reviews. That was only a few months ago

@ solideagle

Very difficult to say which is better. Simple solution, get a Switch and PS4 and enjoy both. They are the perfect companions.

_FantasmA_7d ago

Don't know why you'd compare them. They both make games yes, but they cater to different gamers. Both do what they do well. Nintendo could never do what Sony does, and Sony could never do what Nintendo does. They've both mastered their brands and dominate. Game looks awesome. Wish I could use a Dualshock 4 for this or play it on my PS4.

Red Dead 97 vs Super Smash 93 on metacritic. A current gen game still beat a last gen standard game haha

Nobody's first party is as strong as Nintendo's.....Don't even try to act like Sony's is anywhere as impactful.

That doesn't mean Sony's first party is's's just nowhere near as iconic.

Mario helped save the Video games industry as we know it.....that is hard to compete with.

Nintendo is certainly top-notch in terms of first-party titles; I tend to believe those who disagree haven't played them but want to have an opinion. Super Mario Galaxy is still, in my opinion, one of the greatest games ever made. Sony is also certainly excellent in terms of first-party titles. They have more variety than Nintendo and the narrative piece is much, much stronger. In terms of fun factor though, I prefer Nintendo. There's always something so grand about the journey of Zelda or the extra challenges to Mario games (seriously, Super Mario World 3D's Champion's Road was nuts). People can feel free to disagree with me on that.

That aside, Smash is as much a Mario game as it is any other Nintendo IP, if you ask me. I get that the name Super Smash Bros. is a play on Super Mario Brothers, but Mario isn't really the "protagonist" and hasn't been since the original. It's perhaps one of the very few games where people are far more excited about the guest characters and who else is from Nintendo will be added.

Yeah, I could never get into the game but I still got two copies for my sons for Xmas. They love playing Smash and Melee.

Switch cementing its place as a must own console.

Septic7d ago

For sure. Loving mine so far.

EddieNX 7d ago

Of course if youre only Into "AdULt GaYuMZ" then you don't want a Switch .You should be mature enough to sit around in your pants all day trolling Nintendo articles XD

jagermaster6197d ago

I really enjoy my switch too but haven't really played it since the x came out. I can't wait to play some smash tomorrow!

DarXyde7d ago


Good grief, someone agreed that Switch is a must-own console. What about this comment really prompted you to talk about "AdULt GaYuMZ"? No one is speaking ill of the Switch on this point. Stop making drama.

Take the win that you're apparently accepting on Nintendo's behalf and go about your day.

NarutoFox7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

I'm enjoying all of Nintendo exclusives and this game will definitely be a goty contender

The 10th Rider7d ago

Well, not really. A lot of sites cutoff GOTY at the end of November. Smash isn't eligible a lot of places for this year.

Soybetaboy7d ago

Sold mine to get my 4th ps4 which was the spiderman themed pro

EddieNX 7d ago

Yh why have variety when you can have 4 of the same thing?

You can't play Smash because you wanted a picture of Spiderman. Awesome!

TheEnigma3137d ago

4th? Did they break or you just wanted one in every room of your house?

UltraNova7d ago

The word "Why" is not enough for this...

CDbiggen7d ago

Guess I'm weird, I've only ever needed one.

Strafe7d ago

Of course you did, we believe you. Did you know, a habitual liar actually believes their own bullshit? No one else does, but they do.

SierraGuy7d ago

Soybetaboy7d ago

When Nintendo gets online right sure.

TheDreamCorridor7d ago

Like how the Wii U was... oh wait.

neutralgamer19927d ago


Personal preference
Gaming Time with family and work

Many factors for different gamers but end of the day no one can deny that switch is a great console just like ps4 and Xbox one

Play whatever you want there is no wrong answer in my opinion when it comes to games or consoles. Not everyone will like the same console or game

Nice. I think we can all agree that this is the most content-packed fighting game ever made. I abselutely can't wait to play this with my friends tomorrow, old and new. We're a quirky bunch but we do have at least one thing in common: we freakin' love super smash.

NarutoFox7d ago

I think Red Dead Redemption will win but Super Mash bros is an amazing game
