Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
I remember when I were a child. I used to play the first Super Smash Bros game a whole lot. It took much of my gaming time, probably over 500 hours. Then Melee came and topped that experience, so I were really looking foreward for this game and had high expectations. It was well deserved.
This game uses the same unique and fun style of gameplay as the first two games in the franchise and have more characters than ever. This is the first game to use no-Nintendo characters. That was at first a little disappointment because I really liked that there were just Nintendo characters in the game. But then when I tried to use them so were they obvious characters in the game.
If you've played any of the other games in the series so will you not need an explaination about the gameplay, but for those who've not so will I explain. The game is like a fighting game, you hit people and deal damage, but there's when the similarity with other fighting games end. Instead of a life meter so is there a %meter, but it doesn't show how much life you've left but how much damage you've taken. To kill someone you have to throw them off stage and to do that easier you deal damage. Because in this game so does the character fly longer after a hit if s/he has taken more damage. I really like this system because that makes it almost impossible to create infinitive combos and makes buttonmashing a less good strategy. When someone is knocked off stage they lose a life if you play with lifes or lose a point and the one who killed them gets a point. Random items also occasy appears taken from the Nintendo universe.
So now when I've talked about what this game shares with the other games I'm gonna tell what's new. Except for the new characters so do we have a new longer adventure mode full with bossbattles from the Nintendo universe. It's a really exciting gamemode that let's you play as different characters in the game and can work as a good tutorial to the game and it's character gallery. By beating different levels in the story mode so do you unlock new characters.
I think this game deserves 5 stars because it's a fun multiplayer game that brings alot of laughter to your gaming company.
