If you are not reading about this game, you should be playing this game
24 April 2008 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

40+ Stages, 35 Characters, 500+ Trophies, 100+ stickers, 20+ hours of single-player gameplay, 30+ different ways of brawling with friends, 200+ songs in Brawl, Build-a-Stage Mode.......

How. Much. More. Do. You. Want? Brawl stands as the best in fighting games, party games, and among the best in Nintendo games. Game of the Year is shining on this gem, and the more improved Nintendo is on online capabilities, the better off we all shall be. Nintendo far from half-assed this incredible delight, we definitely get our money's worth purchasing this game. If you own a Wii, you need Brawl in your life. There aren't enough words to express just how much fun this game is, even if we get shortcomings because of what the competitors have to offer in terms of the internet. However, its free, and its not that bad, and it's the beginning of something good involving Nintendo and Wi-Fi. In the meantime, find some friends, and prepare for the time of your life. Super Smash Brothers Brawl: Not just a game you should own, but THE game to own; if there is one game you should buy in 2008, its this one. You can thank me later.

Presentation: The past, present, and potential future of Nintendo join together to fight evil, and then each other. Epic soundtrack, epic feel, and has the most polished feel since Super Mario Galaxy (10/10)

Graphics: While it looks a lot like Melee, the cutscenes, and jaw-dropping background prove that they poured their hearts into making this game look pretty. The framerate refuses to drop unless you go online (8.8/10)

Sound: Perhaps the best soundtrack in gaming history, the 200+ songs compliment the insane amount of sound effects that do nothing more but enhance the Brawling experience. (10/10)

Gameplay: It plays like Melee, but that's not an issue, especially when the cheap moves are limited and the clones are beginning to gather a personality. There's too much to do, and its all so much fun (9.8/10)

Lasting Appeal: Where do I begin? I shouldn't, because as long as you enjoy the fighting style of this game, it will remain embedded in your Nintendo Wii for years to come. Must purchase immediately (10/10)

Final Score: 9.8/10, rounding up to 10/10
