[GS] SSB Brawl Review

post #1 of 16

It's hard to believe, but it's been nine years since the original Super Smash Bros. brought some of the most iconic Nintendo characters together for frantic battles, and roughly seven years since its sequel Super Smash Bros. Melee was released. Perhaps even harder still to believe--and a testament to the series' popularity and longevity--is that these games are still being played religiously to this day. But no matter whether you're a diehard Smash Bros. fanatic or a neophyte brawler, you'll be pleased to know that Super Smash Bros. Brawl includes a plethora of impressive characters, features, and game modes, and is more accessible and fun than ever before.
The video review is pretty good, although the commentary guy who is talking is soooo freaking boring.

Has it really been 9 years since SSB? Wow....I feel old.

Anyway, I can't wait to play this tonight! My friend is getting it, and I am seriously thinking about getting a Wii sometime because of SSBB.

I played Super Smash Bros. Melee for the first time a few months ago against some mates, and even though they were very good (had specific characters, knew all the buttons and combos and stuff for nearly all the other characters as well, had played it for hundreds of hours) I still had great fun.

Might buy this for my cousin for Christmas/his birthday and play it when I go and see him

I plan to buy two copies. One to play, and the other to inject directly into my veins.

Galidan, sell the other on ebay. I know its cruel to make money that way but you will get a lot for it im sure. :X I remember the good ol' days of playing homerun contest for hours on melee, and the countless hours vs'ing all my friends both melee and the original. Best of luck to all those competing in the brawl tournament.

Sigh... I knew I shouldn't have sold my Wii.
post #10 of 16
I sold mine to fund my $470 headphone + $220 amp purchase... bwahahahahahaha

Although, now that I realize that all my friends have a Wii and SSBB by next week, I'm gonna feel left out.
