Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

This is one of the purest examples of a party game that is out there.

Super Smash Bros. Melee has taken a broad step into the new console and for a fact, it is pure genius. Some of the fighting is funny, some of the moves are funny, some of the characters are genius and to top it all off, the secret characters are worth working to.

The single player mode is not varied, however the whole concept of playing the event stages is promising as it eventually leads to unlocking new characters. Some stages are challenging and, my favourite bit, in a party you can turn off all the music and just hurl Mr. Saturns about and hear them make that, Gnneh noise.

Still, it only gets a B+ becasue it lacks depth in fighting skill. Sure, great for parties, but what about the lonely guy who plays it by himself in the middle of the night, in between, ahem and it would just be boring. Sadly, this was the case in the previous installment. Never the less, a classic version of Nintendo brilliance.
