Is there no end to this awesomeness?
24 January 2010 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

No. There is no end.

And Yes, the game even allows you to use gamecube controllers, so all of you who've got the recession on your mind can enjoy brawl. actually, thats how i've been enjoying brawl for 2 weeks now. It's much more fun to play brawl with controllers rather than the Wiimote.

Smash Bros Brawl is a fighting Game for the Nintendo Wii. the Object is to take control of one of Nintendo's mascots, and battle it out on a themed stage to see who can get the most Ko's or be the sole survivor of a stock battle. the person who survives, or scores the most points is the winner. The players can use items such as Laser Swords, Ray guns, Huge hammers, and pokeballs to ensure victory, and when things seem hopeless, the player might be lucky enough to get the final smash attack as it floats across the screen, just waiting to be used. what is it? it's an epic move that will cause the player to do something related to his or her game. for example, Samus fires off a humongous beam of light from her laser cannon, Starfox gets into a landmaster and devastates everybody on the screen, and Mr. Game and Watch turns into an octopus of death.

Here's a History lesson for those who don't game as much as I do. Super Smash Bros dates back to 1999, with the original Super Smash bros on the Nintendo 64 console. Originally, the game was exclusive to japan, and nearly didn't see the shores of north America. the game wasn't popular in japan, so Nintendo was taking a big chance bringing the title to north America (i don't think it was a big chance, considering America's love of violence) but when they did, the game became a best seller! Soon, kids all over the states were smash attacking Mario and his friends into hyperspace with Baseball bats, unleashing Pokémon with pokeballs, and fighting what might be the best boss ever in a video game...the Master hand. overall, with 4 player battles, SSB kept college students from doing homework, and kids having sleepovers, just without any sleep (believe me, i saw it. i was so tired for Friday night basketball the next day.)

2 years later, Nintendo brought the smash bros game into the 6th gen, as Super smash Bros: Melee. with many improvements, extra characters i didn't even know about (and many other 11 year old boys for that matter) came to the mêlée, all with special abilities and techniques. this was the first time us North Americans were introduced to Marth and Roy, the fire emblem Characters. this also introduced me to Mr. Game and Watch, which i never actually knew the full story about until about 3 days ago. put this game at number 4 of their best gamecube games of all time list, stating "If you don't own mêlée, you don't own a gamecube."

Finally, After teasing and Teasing us gamers for about a year, Super Smash Bros Brawl finally hit the shelves in 2008. Even to this day, the game is constantly sold out at future shop, gamestops, and EB games. it's that popular. Bringing extra little things, like the coin launcher, Wi-fi, and 3rd party characters, brawl is the ultimate party game. but light triton, what 3rd party characters are involved? Uh, Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, and..

"Woah, woah, Since when is Solid Snake going to be in a Mario-related game? the 2 haven't made contact before!"

Tis true, reader. But the man behind Metal Gear Solid (Hideo Kojima) Practically Begged Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario's Creator, To put Solid Snake in the game. Being that game programmers and creators have an honourable respect for each other, (unlike Sega and Nintendo in the early 1990s) Solid Snake was in the game. And speaking of Sega, Guess who else comes to the brawl?

Thats right. Sonic...the hedgehog.

That has been a gamer's wish since 1991. to See Sega's mascot, and Nintendo's mascot go one on one and whoop some ass.

But let me tell you something about sonic, and a few other characters. Trying to control Mario is like driving the family corolla. easy-going, and simple. Donkey Kong is like a Dodge ram truck, slow, but strong. Pikachu is like a little Suzuki swift, quick, but little, and sonic? He's like trying to control an Alfa Romeo Schigera.

Yes. He's that Fast. No Blast Processing Needed. and i'm not even mentioning how things get more like a Light-Speed Symphony of Destruction when sonic gets the final smash.

Bottom line, Kids, Play this game. Teenagers, play this game. Senior citizens, play this game, Jack Thompson, play this game. Parents, This game isn't as violent as it seems! you should play it too! forget blowing $99.99 on Wii fit, just go and get Super Smash Bros: Brawl. I guarantee you will not be Craigslisting it in a month.
