Super Smash Bros.
Reviewed by Shadow
YES! There's finally a video game where you can see Samus blow
Yoshi out of the course to show who's boss, or see Link blow up
Mario with his bombs to tell him that Link's "the bomb"! A lot of
people had doubts about this game, because there's never been
anything like a Mario Fighting game. Boy, were they wrong. The
controls are simple, so that beginners can learn easily, and the
multi player is probably the best ever in a fighting game. Plus,
it has a heavy load of nostalgia (finally, for once)!
Graphics 8.5 out of 10
The characters look just like you want them too, but they have
fairly low polygon counts. Fortunately,the game runs at 45 frames
per second, so the game runs very fast and it's extremely difficult
to notice any choppiness (I can in most games, but not this one).
The backgrounds look nice as well. The effects are probably
the nicest looking part of the graphics.
Music and Sound 9 out of 10
The music is totally awesome! All of the music in the fighting
arenas have some of the best music from classic games (such
as the over world music in Link's arena), but enhanced obviously
(except for a secret level!). It will give you good memories of the
good ol' classics. The voices are pretty nice too, and there's
plenty of it. Another great tune is when you use the hammer from
the original Donkey Kong, and it will play that same music from
Donkey Kong (well, it's slightly different).
Game Challenge 5 out of 10
This game is pretty easy in the fighting in one player mode, and
the bonus levels are even easier (a lot of people may disagree on
that). You can easily beat the game in one sitting. But you could
make the game more challenging by going on the vs. mode, and
play against 3 other level 9 CPUs (3 vs.1).
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
This game is a blast! Characters from almost all the popular Nintendo
games are in this to fight against each other. You may get tired of
the one player mode after a while, but it would take a long time to
get tired of the multi player mode (especially 4 player!). It's so fun in
4 player, because EVERYONE fights EVERYONE! So you can send 3
characters flying out of the course at once with a powerful attack.
Rumble Pak 10 out of 10
This game is so fun that you probably wouldn't even notice the
rumbling with the Rumble Pak!
There is none at all, except that the bonus courses can be confusing,
but you should be able to figure most of them out pretty quickly.
Replayability 9.5 out of 10
As I said above, the replay value is unbeatable by almost all games.
The one player mode gets tiresome, but it's so fun to reflect Pikachu's
Thunder Bolt back at him with Fox McCloud or to burn Kirby to a crisp
with PK fire attack, to show those cute characters something, and
you'll never get tired of that.
Game Value 9.5 out of 10
This game's replay value is so high that this is a must buy game, and
it's definitely worth more than a rental.
Play Control 8.5 out of 10
The controls are simple, but it's difficult to move a character
exactly where you want. There are limited moves for each
character, so that beginners will catch on quickly, and the
controls are easy to master.
Overall 8.8 out of 10
This is definitely one of the funniest games for the Nintendo 64
(maybe the only one that beats it is Goldeneye). Fighting fans may
scoff at this, but for everyone else this is one great game.
