Famous video characters in a funny fighting Wii game
17 October 2013 | by chribrenSee all my reviews

"Super Smash Bros. Brawl" is a fighting game released on Wii year 2008. However, while I'm waiting for a "Super Smash Bros" game to be released for Wii U year 2014, I've decided to write a review for this Wii game to tell you what I've been thinking about "SSBB" in general. And therefore this happened to be the first game I'm gonna review about here on the IMDb site.

Characters: There are at least 35 playable characters in this game. Besides from veteran characters like Mario, Peach, Donkey Kong, Fox McCloud, Captain Falcon, Jigglypuff and Pikachu, there are several new characters as well, some of them being: Solid Snake, Sonic the Hedgehog, R.O.B., Lucario and Mr. Game & Watch just to name a few. As usual, many are playable from the start, while others have to be unlocked in specific ways.

Stages: This game doesn't only have new stages designed for SSBB, it also include some stages originally from "Super Smash Bros. Melee" for Nintendo Gamecube, as well as stages made by fans on Stage Builder. More about the player-created stages later. As I said about the characters, some stages are available from the start, while other have to be unlocked in some ways.

Nothing wrong with the item list as there are lots of items to be used in the "Brawl" mode and "Classic Mode". I just love the appearance of the Smash Ball, the Assist Trophy, Pokeball and the Smart Bomb.

And there are even lots of challenges to be done in order to get some special trophies, stickers and music, as well as new parts for Stage Builder and more.

So what makes this game great anyway? Yes, we got a spectacular adventure mode called "Subspace Emissary", where characters fight bosses and enemies, avoid or destroy obstacles and more in order to save the world from some dark power. When playing this game, I felt like this was a kind of "Super Smash Bros." meets "Final Fantasy", so great I found this adventure mode. This is the mode where I unlocked most of the unlockable characters like Ganondorf, Ness and Sonic.

Another great with this game is the pretty much beloved Stage Builder, which allows players to create their own stages. Pretty simple, but unlimited fun. The only disappointing is the limit on how many bricks you can put on the stage you are making. People have even uploaded each of their stages on a certain web page, allowing other people to downloading these stage into their memory card so it could be played on other Wii consoles.

Also, pausing during a match, "Subspace Emissary" or "Classic Mode" allows the player to take a picture and save it on the console itself, as well as in a memory card so the pictures could be uploaded on the internet.

And there are other modes as well; A mode where pictures and all collected stickers and trophies can be looked at; a mode where you have to break the targets in fastest possible time; a "multi-man brawl" which can be somewhat frustrating in times; a boss battle; a home-run contest; event matches; Wi-Fi connection, and much much more...

So yes, there have been much to in this game. I have even been using many months to complete most of the challenges I could do.

My favorite characters in random order: PEACH (love her), Mario, Bowser, Donkey Kong and Captain Falcon. Some other characters I like to use include Pikachu, Wario, Zelda, Snake and Zero Suit Samus.

Overall, this game is one of my favorite Wii game I have on my room. My overall rating: 10/10
