Great Choices for Nintendo Characters, even greater game in itself

Author: Ian Pugh (
8 July 1999

Super Smash Brothers should be owned by any die-hard Nintendo fanatic. Who else but they can remember Ness from Earthbound? Captain Falcon from F-Zero? But of course, the best characters are, of course, Mario and Luigi! Mario has always been the faithful hero, and you finally get to play as the man, Luigi (watch him groove!).

Please, don't regard this among other fighting greats like Street Fighter or Tekken. Consider it in a whole other league of its own. Buy it!

Awesome fighting game

Author: Op_Prime from Ardmore, PA
2 June 2000

Everyone's favorite N64 characters battle it out where anything goes. The game features the best of Nintendo: Mario, Luigi, Link, Yoshi, Fox McCloud, Pikachu and Captain Falcon. They even bring back the old favorites: Samus and Kirby. They sneak in Jigglypuff as well. It's fun to play as the Nintendo characters in a fighting game, rather than the Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat characters. It's refreshing. This is a great game.

The "Tekken" of Nintendo Characters.

Author: Anthony Einsel from Hastings, Nebraska
8 June 1999

Super Smash Bros. is a vibrant game. Starring all of your favorite N64 characters. The game is a great thing to show off and beat the crap out of Nintendo characters you hate. The control is nice, the graphics good, and the multiplayer mode outstanding. Every N64 owner should add this to their library of N64 games if they like addicted fighters!

Rated E(Contains Violence)

Super Smash Bros will be on my list of Top Ninendo 64 video games.THis game is great especially for 1999.The graphics and the gameplay are simply excellent.This game isn't as good as Super Smash Bros Melee but this game was released earlier.YOu can choose between plenty of cool characters such as Mario,Luigi,Donkey Kong and plenty of others and you engage in combat with them.You can also choose many different places to battle in.Super Smash Bros I thought was a great game for its time.Super Smash Bros is a very fun and good game.I recommend it!

So Happy Together

I remember back in 1999 when this game was just released. It sure was a big hit and copies were sold left and right. This game was revolutionary and it brought so much life back to the dying Nintendo 64. Super Smash Brothers isn't really famous for it's 1 Player mode but more then makes up for it with it's endlessly fun multiplayer mode which you and up to 3 other friends can enjoy playing for hours on end. It's an excellent party game that you may never get tired of. On top of that Nintendo has clashed all their top hero icons together in a tournament. Featuring characters such as Fox, Samus, Link, and more. There are 4 secret characters which need to be unlocked as well as an unlockable multiplayer arena. Each character has his or her signature moves from passed games. This is the best miltiplayer game on the Nintendo 64. There is enough replay value to keep the game interesting for quite a while.

Fun Game

Author: Overlord-4
24 June 2000

Well, I thought IMDb only does movies, not video games! Anyway, Smash Bros is a great game. Great multiplayer, graphics, but there should be at least 2 characters from each game. (excluding the mario bros and pokemon) My fav character is Link, very high attack, multiple attacks, effects adjacent enemies, good specials but medium speed, and bad jumps. If you play this game again after a year or 2, you'll be addicted to it like crazy for 2 months (like me).

Best Fighting Game of All Time!

Author: Illyngophobia from United States
13 April 2008

Now,I love my Virta Fighter for the PS2,but this beats it by a landslide.

This game has wonderful graphic,sounds and effects.Not to mention,has the best options for any game I played.With this game,you can choose which weapons are available to use,you can make teams,change the level of the character you are fighting,for an advantage.And of course,great fighting stages,from different worlds like in Pokemon,Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers! The weapons are creative and awesome.Beam swords,land mines,flame throwers,super hammers,baseball bats and so on.You can also do a training challenge,where you can train by fighting against another character.The best challenge is the one player,where you fight the characters,and others like the polygon people,metal Mario and the Master Hand at the end.

The game is wonderful and fun for all ages.

10/10 *****/*****!Go play it now!

The best multi fighter game for the N64.

Author: emasterslake from United States
10 October 2007

This was one of the most unique fighter games of it's time back in the late 90's. When Nintendo 64 was still a dominate console of the fifth generation gaming era.

What got me in buying this game was the fact that you can play as 8 Nintendo copyrighted characters. Mario, Donkey Kong, Samus, Link, Yoshi, Fox McCloud, Pikachu, & Kirby. As well as 4 unlock-able characters making it 12 to chose from.

Unlike the common fighter games. In Super Smash Bros. you get to use unique items to fight and almost all the fighting arenas are based off of a familiar Nintendo game. Choose either Adventure Mode, VS. Mode, or Training Mode to play in. Actual dialog from the talking characters. Not to mention a few surprises happening during the levels. Each fighter you choose has his or her own unique ability.

There are only a few things available to unlock in the game. But besides the graphics being 64 bit making the background and characters polygon-like. And some of the background character being paper thin. This game is still a classic straight from the N64 days. And has changed the face of multi fighter games for good.

Plus this was Samus' only N64 appearance making it a must have for the Metroid fans.

Excellent game!

Author: The_Light_Triton ( from In a Chair in my room
3 February 2006

This is a 10/10 game, regardless that it's outdated. mainly because it's a good game to pop in when you're really bored. Even after you've earned everything, beaten everything, it's very fun.

So, In Super Smash bros, you get a choice of all the Nintendo characters and send them out into an arena. the idea is to knock the opponent out of the arena. in single player mode, you Fight several opponents and it leads you all the way to the ultimate warrior - the master hand.

This game was a Hit when it came out. everyone from all over the world played it everyday - until Super Smash bros Melee hit the shelves. Melee added a lot of features which might complicate the series, but it is still a fun game.

Something has gone wrong in the happy go lucky world of Nintendo

Author: Terryfan from United States
9 April 2015

In 1999 I remember this commercial that feature Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, and Pikachu were walking in a field it was bright day outside they seem to be happy together as the song "So Happy Together" was playing in the background when suddenly the four begin to battle and the narrator said "Something has gone wrong in the happy go lucky world of Nintendo".

It is still one of my favorite video game commercials.

Super Smash Bros contains your favorite Nintendo Characters in a fighting game where you can get four of your friends and duke it out with power ups, weapons, poke-mon balls, fire ball flowers and much more.

The characters you get to play as are Captain Falcon from "F-Zero", Donkey Kong from "Donkey Kong", Fox McCloud from "Star Fox", Jigglypuff, and Pikachu "Pokemon", Samus from "Metroid", Mario and Luigi From "Super Mario Bros", Kirby from "Kirby", Link from "The Legend of Zelda" Ness from "Earthbound/Mother" and Yoshi from "Super Mario World".

You can take all of your favorites into battle. With power ups to fight with. With each character having a different fighting style and their own personal power this game is by far a masterpiece.

The Nintendo 64 has been known for it many games where the best way to play them is with your friends and family and Super Smash Bros is one of those games where the fun is when you have more people to play with.

The graphics are very impressive on the Nintendo 64 as each character is very well design like they were on their respect games fro the Nintendo 64 plus great level design which honors games like "Super Mario Bros" and "Star Fox". Music is very awesome with each level having it own special theme song. The controls work all very well done make it easy to pick up to play.

The game really shows on the game play with hours of game play fun you would be disappointed with the game because it superb game play is why the Nintendo 64 was a masterpiece.

I give Super Smash Bros an 10 out of 10
