FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

Caution, I know Karate and a few other oriental words.                                                                       

        Back in 1997, someone over there at Nintendo  decided that characters from every one of there games beating the heck out of each other would make a good game. It did. A few years later, someone decided that they should throw in more characters, new modes, better graphics, and put it on the Gamecube. They did and that is why I'm writing this review, because Super Smash Bros. Melee is a game that surpasses its predecessor in almost every way.

         First of all, SSBM has a much larger variety of characters. Zelda, Captain Falcon, and Bowser right of the bat. also expect to unlock a ton of other characters. Your screen will be filled to the top with fighters.

          Also, a new feature has been added, but don't get too excited, because it's trophies. Yes, through playing single player mode you will find hundreds of trophies. But since they don't really do anything, all but the most hardcore collectors will get bored with the little trinkets.

          Did I mention the multiplayer? An array of new modes have been added. There's Tiny Melee, Lighting Melee, Single Button Melee, and plain old Melee. Many a party has been livened up by the multiplayer.

           However despite the awesome multiplayer and having enough characters to conquer Belgium, the single player will lull you into a coma after the millionth time you've beaten it. But despite this, I whole-heartedly recommend Super Smash Bros. Melee to fans of the fighting genre and fans of the original.
