Summary: Oh my goodness that Emissary mode was soo long and drawn out. My goodness I decided there I might not finish the whole game. I'd played the first Smash Bros. and Melee. Melee I had just sitting around after beating it and I knew it would be the same with Brawl. The online play is about the only thing I liked as the graphics and action while vamped from Melee is pretty much the same.
Summary: I have played Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and now I have Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I really enjoy the gameplay, but I find the intro and menu music to be quiet annoying. There are new additions in this version of the series and some of the best like Stage Editor, Replay & Photo during any match (Replays from Wi-Fi Can Also Be Saved), and more. Wi-Fi is just plain awful. The matches lags slow everybody has to suffer a slow fight.
Summary: I don't get it, but I'm probably too old. My son, aged 12, thinks it's great. It is a fighting game as the name suggests, not like a more adult game, but is at the limit of what I'm comfortable with.
