What do these ratings mean?

Now you can see who would win in a fight between Nintendo's
most famous Characters! You can now see who would win in a
fight between Mario and Peach! or Link and Zelda or even Bowser
vs Donkey Kong! How ever you play this game, its a hella't
of fun! This game is everything the first Smash bros was with
a lot, I mean a lot of Extras!

As you begin the game, You'll see a Wonderful FMV of the
non-hidden characters in the game. It shows the characters
and some of the things the character has seen in the past
game the character stared on.


Gameplay

The games 1 player mode is fun, but when you have to best
it over and over again with different characters, it can
get boring at times. The Adventure mode adds more fun compared
to the classic mode, but it still gets boring after a while.
The All-Star mode isnt much of an improvement to classic
mode. The Event Matches are fun and can be very challenging
in the last 20 Event matches, I love this Mode, They Should
have spent more time on making more Event Matches then making
an All-Star mode.


The game also has other modes like Multi-Man Melee, smash
the Targets, and others. these modes are fun, but not an
fun as the Mode this game was made for. The Multi-Player
mode! This is the part of the game that is the most fun
and most addicting part of the game. I cant get enough of
the multi-player mode, you'll keep playing this game until
you've unlocked everything, after that you'll play it until
your the best out of everyone you know, then you'll play
until you've beaten any of the 1-player modes on Very Hard
with out continuing. If you have done everything I just
said, then You are one of the best players of Melee ever.


The Characters

Characters in this melee comes from all of Nintendo's great
games. Like Mario, Link, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, and
alots more. With theses Characters, you beat each other
up with your fist, foot, rockets, tail,guns, head, fingers,
sword, toad, and many other things you might wanna use to
fight. In the next SSB game, I would like to see more rare
Characters like Banjo, Fulgore, Diddy, Conker, Joanna and
others. That could be very possible if Nintendo owned more
then 50% of Rare. But as of now, they only own 34%, Lets
hope Nintendo becomes smart and spends more Cash on them
so they can get 34% higher than 50%.



The Controlling

Getting used to the Controller is very easy to do, anyone
can used to the controlling very fast. The X and Y buttons
are to jump, A and B buttons are to attack, L and R buttons
to Block. Controller Stick is to move around and up on the
D-pad is to do your characters taunt. The C-Stick can also
be used to do attacks when fighting, but when Not fighting,
the C-Stick is used to move the camera around.


Graphics

The Graphics on this game dont have a major roll. The Graphics
are good if you pause the game in the middle of a fight
a zoom in, but when You are playing this game, graphics
are one of the last things you notice.


Sound

Sounds on this games aren't mouth dropping, but it isnt
crap. The best part of Sounds on this game are the cool
Nintendo tunes on this game. You get to listen to your favorite
Nintendo Music on one fantastic game.


Replay Value

Yes, this game has an Amazingly good replay Value. Grab
3 friends and you'll be playing all day for the next year.
Its so addicting, that you or one of your friends will be
inviting tons of other friends over to play in a tournament
to see who is the best of the best!


Conclusion

This game is amazing and I dont think any gamecube owner
should go with out this game. if you dont own this game,
then You must! if you dont have an Gamecube, then this is
the game you should get just for gamecube. This game should
be the best game in its Genre ever made.


Ups

+Very Fun for a Fighter
