Pure Fun       Product Reviews

This game is pure fun, for everyone. Unlike many fighters, the controls are kept simple enough that pretty much anyone can play, and yet, they still offer a diversity of moves to keep the game fun. It's a fun game in single player mode, where there is not only the traditional fighting mode, but an adventure mode (which includes levels where you side-scroll through other nintendo worlds, fight wierd charachters, etc.) and event mode (which has different challenges, some of which are kind of dumb, but some are pretty fun.)
Even better is the multiplayer. This is pretty much the ultimate multiplayer game. Anyone can play, and everyone will have fun.

For those who have played the N64 game, this is similar, but with many more features.
I'd also say that this game proves wrong all those who complain about the GameCube controller. It's very instinctive in this game.
One of the best fighting games ever made       Product Reviews

I could go into lots detail about how great this game is. The level of diversity available to players is just amazing. Do a google search or read some of the other reviews and you'll see what I mean.

This game is a classic. It's still played in college dorms all over the country. A shame that N doesn't release an Arcade version of this - it would be huge, and would give Capcom some serious competition.

This game never gets old. It's the ultimate gamecube controller wrecker. If you don't have it, buy it. This is the game to have for Gamecube.

Okay this game may have been outfor four years, but I am reviewing it anyway

Super Smash Brothers for the N64 in my opinion, is s*** compared to this one, this one is that one on steriods. Usually, games such as Twisted Metal Black don't totally make the older vesions vaporware, but in an exception, this one beats the hell out of that one (and the N64 is good of course, but this one is way better). This classic game is a great game that anybody who likes having fufn with their buds, and not too shabby for people with their own (but I reccomend friends over playing alone).

Why exactly is this a classic and in steriods? Well, it is filled with content, it has so much replayability in it. The game has a bunch of characters, all detailed, and their moves are unique (just check out Mr. Game And Watch). A roster if your favorites are all here. Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Daisy, Yoshi, Link (god I hate this pansy piece of S****), Zelda, Mewtwo, Samus, Ness, and a whole lot more. There is just so many characters and the characters for once are very interesting indeed. The levels are no different, they are full of animation a nd moving parts and scenery to disrtact you, and there are even ways you can har m yourself, and each stageis full of features. You have to check it out, and there are even a few old levels as well (which are not polished up, which is good).

Single player may be a little boring sometimes compared to 4 player madness, but ont really. The adveture mode is extremelt repitive, and the levels are the exact same thing. But however, that doesen't really harm that mode, as because the 51 events are great, and that is where you see the hard as hell Master Hand drom thbe old game, as well as his new friends that he brought along, the Crazy Hand, The final battle is a group of enemies that I am not going to spoil for you (if you have played the game, you know what I am talking about). And with a handful of minigames make it fun to do things, plus the training mde if you just want to hone your skills.

For the fighting itself, it is pretty obvious that it has improved alot. First off, there are combos and points, so the damage point percentage system is still there. However, even though they have kept the core gameplay that made the fist so addicting, the next generation technology added innovation while making it feel like the two games belong together. A ton of new weapons were added, swords and guns, and more detailed of everything. the weapons now make the game more fun alot. the stages include traps and other thigns to trick your oppenent and make stragegy into the game. Ans the ability to get trophies makes collecting more fun, and once you get trophies, you can view them and a box at the right of the big trophy display gives GOOD information on what it is. Super Smash Brothers ios deep , and that's just the singe player

The Multiplayer is the jem here, and I bet people still have blasts playing with their friends on sleepover parties even in 2006, and it's hard not to see why. It's four player mayhem is incredibly fun, never boring, and simnplly a blast. And it ain't one dimensional, you can customize it, and say if you only have two friends, you can have two other computer controlled charaters. You know just how deep it is if y ou are a player, or even a person who has played it once or twice, and if you don't, you'll find out soon enough.

Thsi game is a classic that every Zgamecube owner should have., It's great, and with yoru friends, it's worth it.

Oh, and if you are curios, here are my favorites of the game.

Character:Mr. Game And Watch
Level:Fountain Of dreams
single player activity: Creating a team of three, superpowerful 9 nskilled players (I am one pof the three), and fighting some crappy character with a skill level of one
Multi:Playing with four friends
Other: Looking at the graphics

So anyway, if you are reading this still figureing out if it is worth it, go get it. It's a blast.

For those of you who do, I bet you guys still play with your friends.
Super Smash Bros is back, and it's better then ever!       Product Reviews

Super Smash Bros for the N64 was easily my favorite game. Why wouldn't it be? How can you not love Nintendo's lovable mascots getting into a stage and then battling? Well now it gets even better.

Super Smash Bros Melee is a superb game that really can't get any better. That's start with some single player options. One of my favorite new features is Adventure Mode - Here you fight your way across several Nintendo themed locations. Not only is it enjoyable to relive the backgrounds, but some of the enemys are included as well! Another enjoyable aspect of the game is Stadium Challenges (I believe that's what they're called). These present a challenge ranging from killing a character within a matter of seconds or winning in a battle where bombs rule! Not only is this very challenging, it is a thrill to see a different approach on the overall normal Melee.

While this game has a wonderful single player, it just only gets better with multiplayer.

Multiplayer is a fun and addictive section of the game where you can fight it out with your friends. Not only can this present new challenges to even the most hard core player, but it will give you a chance to team up on one specific player. Several strategy's that are just not possable with CPU's come into play here. These battles are also extremely customizable. Not only can you choose between several different styles of combat, but from there you can select handicap, what items will fall, how many items will fall, and much more.

Overall, Super Smash Bros Melee is a unique and exciting experience that will leave you eager for more.
