Every now and then, a game comes along that is entirely a must-have for every owner of the platforms it is released on. A couple of months ago GTA4 was released for PS3 and XBOX 360 and in the end of 2007 Nintendo marveled us with the release of Super Mario Galaxy. Now, less than six months later, that feat has been repeated with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Super Smash Bros Brawl is an extremely fun game. Its simple controls and gameplay make it remarkably accessible to beginners yet still appealing to Smash Bros. veterans.
Pick your favorite from 35 Nintendo star and knock them away! Smash Bros is addictive and challenging as it was on the N64 and GameCube. You can choose to play with four types of controllers: wii mote only, wii mote & nunchuk, classic controller, and the Gamecube controller. Although passersbys will think all four players are just banging on buttons; experienced gamers will know just how important each attack, feint and dodge really is.
With the inclusion of mostly lag-free online play and the ability to share screenshots, custom levels, and game replays with friends, it offers an unparalleled multiplayer experience previously unseen on the Wii. All battle stages are a revival of Nintendo's most glorious games. Mix in all of the unlockable characters and the excessive number of collectible trophies and stickers to find. Brawl features an extensive quest which is packed with cutscenes. Watching Mario and your other heroes teaming up to beat back an invasion is a spectacle that just has to be see. The Subspace Emissary is an extensive single or 2 player adventure mode where players jump and brawl their way through enemy-packed side scrolling levels, watching incredible scenarios and battling gigantic bosses.
Brawl's biggest addition is Wi-Fi Connection support. If you're brawling with friends off your Friend Code list, the experience should be generally clean and lag-free. Friends or strangers alike can be challenged online either in cooperative teams or as individual fighters. Believe me, the main problem regarding this game is that you sadly have to switch the game off at some time, so that your partner/ parents/ children would not feel miserable that you do not calculate them any more.
Ultimately thanks to games such as this that people prefer Nintendo over Sony and Microsoft. The sights, the sounds, deep customization, breathless action, enjoyable Subspace Emissary... it's the Wii's perfect party (multiplayer) game and Nintendo's most extensive work that remind us of over 20 years of its glorious history. It's particularly impossible to find a Wii title that provides more value for money. Simply it is one of those few games (together with Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart & Zelda) that you should buy the Wii for. It is a sort of gaming experience that if its predecessors are any indication, people will be playing for years to come. Do not lose any more time reading reviews and watching game sites because everyone has the same idea... it is time to Brawl!
