    Great multiplayer game!

    If you like Nintendo, you will love Super Smash Bros. Brawl! It has a huge character roster. Bigger than any other fighting game to date. Some of the characters are pretty identical though. The game gives you a nice amount of characters to start with and you will eventually unlock more as you progress through the game.

    A new feature to the game is the Subspace Emissary mode. This is basically the single player mode of the game. Although you can play it with a friend as well. This mode plays like a side scroller so unfortunately the fighting gameplay sometimes doesn't work so well with it. It is fairly long. It should take you around 8-10 finishing it. As you progress you will see amazing cutscenes. Which is really the only reason you will play through it. Except from unlocking the rest of the characters. It really gets boring after awhile.

    SSBB definetly looks better then most Wii games. The character models are well detailed. The stages are also awesome with beautiful soundtracks.

    Fortunately the game online. Unfortunately it doesn't work so well. When we first bought the game it took around 10 mins to find only 1 person. But after awhile I started finding people much quicker. Still it takes around 2 minutes to find 3 other people. There is no way to customize how you want to play. The time is fixed, so are the rules. You can't communicate with the ones you are playing with in any way. Online is pretty much lag free, for me atleast. It depends on your connection and the ones your playing with.

    Although if you have a friend who also has the game the online is awesome. You can customize all the rules and time. No lag. And its just for fun to play with people you know rather than strangers.

    This game has A LOT of unlockables. Hundreds of trophies and stickers. Dosens of characters and stages. And around 300 soundtracks. Its just incredible!

    Overall this game is a must buy for any Wii owner who has friends or family willing to play with you. The online definetly needs improvement. But its still ok.

      Best in series?, yes but expected a bit more 0

      Apart from all the things already said by many of the reviewers out, this game just rocks.Nintendo threw in some new characters, yes Snake is in the game as well as Sonic but I hoped more new characters were introduced not in the form of clones that is. Not satisfied by the roster Nintendo launched with the game different modes, Master Pieces being one of them. In the master piece part of the game it will let you try out a few of the games available from Nintendo via the shop, although the maste...

      Brawl really leaves nothing unfinished, almost no feature omitted 0

      I've been playing video games for almost as long as I can remember. As of this review, I've beaten 572 and played many more. Perhaps one of my favorite games so far is Super Smash Bros. Brawl. OK, it's only in the top 3, but that's still quite a statement. But why do I love this game so much? Brawl attempts something different when it comes to fighters. Rather than depleting your sole opponent's life bar with arcane button and joystick sequences which fire fireballs from your hands , you bash yo...
