I can totally understand your thinking, I thought it was sort of pointless when I saw the first Smash Bros. game and then I joined in playing it, and just with playing a simple V.S. match with other people was enjoyable.Originally Posted by Pantalaimn
And it's different from Mortal Kombat or Virtua Fighter, Instead of having a health bar like you would in Mortal Kombat, you have a percentage bar, and you start out at 0% which is like a full heath meter, each hit you take you percentage goes up, and that causes you to get knocked back further when the percentage goes up, and when you get about 100 % you will get hit far enough to get knocked back out of the screens view and when you can't see you character on the screen it dies/loses. So you don't technically die on the spot because even if you get knocked back out of the screens view you can jump back in view and continue to fight.
And that also makes the match last a lot longer instead of playing a two minute match.
And it's also differnet from Mortal Kombat in another way, Mortal Kombat is kind of stiff, to say more clearly, in MK you can't jump and climb up platforms and avoid attacks. In Smash Bros. almost every stage theres comfortable space throughout the stage. Plus SB characters can get around alot quicker, agiler, ect.
Another way it's differnet from MK is that in SB you have four different special moves, normal attacks in any directions, four different taunts (as crazy as that seems), melee weapons and items such as swords, bombs, laser guns, ect.
With all the new modes in Brawl theres much to do, Single player: Adventure/Subspace mode, Multiplayer: Adventure/Subspace mode, Classic mode, Trophies to collect (plus you can place the trophies you've collected on a designed platform and take pictures of them and send to Wii friends), Stage Builder, Wifi with anyone, Wifi with Friends, Stickers to collect and place them all over a scrap book (and Stickers have special powers and effects on characters when you use them in Adventure/Subspace mode), Target test mode, Target test multiplayer, Home run contest, Home Run contest multiplayer, V.S. Mode with friends, V.S. mode with friends over wifi, Single player V.S. with computers, ect.
As others have stated, check the dojo's game modes, and also check the how to play section too... check everything on the dojo for that matter.
