Like many other gamers (and non gamers as well), I had been anxiously awaiting the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii, and I was definitely not disappointed. All your favorite characters are there from Mario, Final Fantasy and Metroid to battle it out against each other. My personal preference is Kirby, but I’m sure the others are just as good.
One thing I was really impressed with in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is how customizable it is. If you don’t immediately love the game, you can change it until you do. You can customize your own levels to make them perfect for you to overpower your opponents in, or just to give you a little extra challenge if you are becoming too good.
There are many different modes you can play Super Smash Bros. Brawl in and also you can use whichever Wii controller you are most comfortable with, be it Wiimote, nunchuk, the classic controller or even a Gamecube controller. Stick to one, or master them all.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl you can play at home by yourself or battle against your friends, play online against four other strangers (or friends at their own houses, and you can even play a tournament style game with up to 32 different people, The tournament keeps track for you so you don’t have to worry about who goes next.
A feature that I was really excited about was the ability to save your wins in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as replays. Now when I smash my opponents I can replay it over and over and really rub my wins in their faces.
When playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl solo there is even an adventure mode where all the characters work together on one team to beat the bosses. And you can even invite a friend to play with you, but unlike the multiplayer mode, you and your friend are on the same team and are smashing bosses not each other. After beating each other silly in the multiplayer mode, a little Super Smash Bros. Brawl teamwork might be a nice change.
Fifty dollars might seem a little steep for a video game, but with all the use you will get out of it playing alone, with friend and online, it is well worth it. Super Smash Bros. Brawl will soon become on of your favorite Wii Games. I guarantee it.
