What an overrated and lousy game this is,... it becomes very boring very fastly, just like the other 2 for n64 and wii. The only remarkable thing about this 1 are the graphics... should've bought Luigi's Mansion, instead!

I found Brawl to be superior to Melee. I hated how the fast characters had the huge advantage over the slow characters. That wasn't the case in Brawl >.>. Only thing people find rigged are Meta Knight and Snake (I don't really understand Snake). It's true that beginners will have an easier time with Brawl, but that means that (hopefully) more people would come to the competitive scene. Needless to say, all Smashes are great games.

Yep, I totally agree with you LemonManX. Brawl introduced a new concept to the series: Defensive play (it takes a MUCH bigger role in this game). What the heck was wrong with the fast paced action of Melee? :/

Ah Melee, the superior game to Brawl. But that's because I enjoyed it's competitive side much more than Brawl's.

The hell, leo-j? The game is too short? There's alot of crap to unlock. And to this day I don't have everything unlocked, I'm still missing atleast 60 or so trophies, the DK classic stage and Sound Test.

And lack of ONLINE KILLS IT? The gamecube never had online compatibility. It's not the game's fault. :/

This is the best game of the last generation, and I still play it all the time with friends. This is why I bought four GameCube controllers and it's why I'll still have those same four controllers (a lot of wear though!) when Brawl comes out! It's amazing how much they improved this game from the original SSB, it was developed more than any other fighting game sequel.

lol Dreamcast had a lot more than one online game. Of course online isn't that big of a deal if you have friends. Melee is the best multiplayer game ever and that's the bottom line.

Parokki posted 26/06/2007, 12:07
This game is the only reason I'm back into console gaming. Seriously, back in autumn 2005 the last console I had owned was the NES and, aside from playing MGS and some others on my brother's PS2, I was 100% a PC gamer. Then I happened to play Super Smash Bros. Melee at a certain allnighter geek event during the winter and was totally hooked on it.

Within a few weeks I had bought a used Gamecube for practically nothing, a few controllers and my dear, dear Melee. That quickly turned into buying a pile of other GC games and the rest is history.

It's perfect. The controls are spot on right, the music is probably the best in any game ever, and even more amazingly it still looks gorgeous 6 years after release. It's simple enough for a beginner to pick up the pad and have some idea what to do, but such enormous depth that the tournament scene is still alive and kicking. Definitely still a fighting game, but different enough to be refreshing to any veteran of the genre. Unless they've already decided it's not a "real" fighter anyway. =P

Brawl will probably take the cake after it gets released, but it will never have a similar influence on my gaming.

Took a great multiplayer concept, smoothed it out and added new charecters. Though some fighting game purists would say it's far too simplistic, they really have no idea how big a skill difference can be shown in this game.
