Lame Intro (sorry)-

7 years of waiting for Brawl.....

I played the first Super Smash Brothers non-stop, completing a stock 99 match with three friends one time. Needless to say it was probably one of the first games that really got me into videogames, especially Nintendo.When Melee came out I did not have a Gamecube, playing Xbox instead. I grew up, became loyal to Microsoft. I could never really get into Melee, it just seemed somewhat unpolished, rushed if you will. Next generation comes, 360 is bought. But then the Wii came out, got it first day and I felt young again. I went back to play Melee, loved it.

Then came Brawl...

Brawl is without a doubt the most fun game I have played in my entire life. More fun than Halo,Call of Duty, Bioshock, and Gears of War. I a loyal Microsoft fan have been converted back into a Nintendo Fan Boy.

Mutiplayer-A+

Brawl is pretty similar to the other SSB games. You beat the crap out of opponents and try to knock them in the stratoshpere. It is as simple as it is addicting. Anyone can enjoy this game. My older brother has not gotten into videogames since the N64, but cannot put this one down. There are a hefty amount of both stages and characters (unlocked all the stages and characters). While some characters may not be fun to play as (Dedede, Jigglypuff), my favorties are still there (Game and Watch, Peach, Samus). Although most of the new characters are interesting , none will ever be my main. The stages are a mix bag of the greatest in SSB to the worst. It has a huge amount, 41 in the end. My personal favorties are Pictochat, Battlefield, Yoshi's Island, and Lylat Cruiser. There are also a lot of new items to aide your smashing. Smash balls float around, and you must break them to use your characters' most powerful move. They range from awesome(Samus, Link, Marth, Mario, Ike) to wierd(Game and Watch, Luigi, Peach, Dedede) to just plain stupid( Jigglypuff,Donkey Kong). Another new item is the Assist Trophey, which causes a Nintendo character to etiher attack or mess with the field of vision. The ones that mess with visions are kind of funny at first, but after awhile become extremely annoying(Mr.Rossitie!!). My personal favorite item, the bumper, was brought back after missing from Melee. I don't have Wii online, so I have no opinion on it, sorry.

Single Player-A-

Brawl is a multiplayer game, end of story. Anything included after the multiplayer game I consider extra( if you don't agree with that statement, then this paragraph will probebly piss you off.) The biggest chunk of single player is the SSE(Subspace Emissary). It is a sidescrolling adventure that will take around 8 hours to beat. Any Nintendo fan will love the cutscences that are beautifully animated. The story does not make much sense (random enimies taking over Nintendo land?) but it is fun to see all your favorite characters team up against the waves of bad guys. One problem I had with this mode was the fact that many classic villians were overlooked. Sure there are koopas and goombas, but the rest are new enemies. Why arent there levels were you fight space pirates(Metroid), Kremlings(DK), Redead( Zelda). SSE is a fun way to unlock the new characters and watch some truely amazing animation. Why are all Nintendo characters mute? Classic mode is back, so is All Star mode, target test, home run, and multiman brawls. They are fun but wont keep you away from the multiplayer.

Overall-A+

Brawl has a ton of unlockable stickers, tropheys and CDs. There is no reason to unlock them all except for the fact that you do want them. With an amazing amount of content both new and old, a basic stage builder, characters and stages galore, online, and the most unlockables I have seen in a game Super Smash Brothers Brawl is truely the best game ever. I am upset that Game Informer gave it a 9.5, while Bioshock gets a ten. Unlock Bioshock, this is one game that I will be playing for years to come.
