After finally getting my hands on the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I immediately took it home, popped open the case, and drooled over what I saw. It was finally here, in my hands, the game I have been waiting for, in all of its smashing glory.

Controls

Super Smash Bros. Brawl screenshotThe first thing I heard about was the use of its many "ways to play", so I decided to try them all out. I am happy to report that every control scheme feels good in your hands. Currently I am using the wiimote sideways, which handles well.

Gameplay

With many modes to play, you will not be bored. My favorite new addition is the new adventure mode - The subspace Emissary. I do not want to ruin anything, but it is a joy to see how the mode uses all the characters, so check it out. This game also has online play, which is nice change of place. However, I know of plenty of cases that the online does not work 100% yet, but it's brand new, so let us see where it goes.

Sound

Awesome, but you already knew that, it's super smash bros brawl. All characters you know there have their little chimes now and again

Cons

Super Smash Bros. Brawl screenshotAs of right now, I can think of two cons to this game.

  1. Online play
  2. Disk Error

I already talked about number 1, the online play is lacking, but it is getting better. I would think the servers just need some tweaking.

Since SSBB is dual layered; other gamers and I have been seeing some disk errors (which I read is due to the cleanliness of the lens). Nintendo has offered to clean your Wii for free, but it is a slightly annoying problem.
