So I can only imagine the amount of Hate that will be directed at me for even mentioning anything bad about SSBB, but something has been bugging me that I feel I should get off my chest.
That something is how completely disappointed I am with the Final Smash moves of each character.
I remember the joy and wonder when I saw the first video of Mario, Link, and a few other final smashes... but the more I've learned, and the more videos I've seen of them in action, the more I'm sure I won't even bother with them when I'm actually playing the game.
Now don't get me wrong, there are some that are really interesting/fun/clever/effective. Like Samus's SHOOPDAWOOP and subsequent transformation to Zero Suit Samus. Same withandSpoiler Alert!Ice climber's Mountain of Ice-y Doom<-- not sure if this still counts as a spoilerSpoiler Alert!Sonic's transformation to Gold Sonic and "flying-around-like-God-killing-everyone"
But now that the game has been released in Japan, I can't help but see the Final Smashes that seem... completely Lame
I.e.and ESPECIALLYSpoiler Alert!StarFox/Wolf/Falco All having the same landmaster that has a different move attached to itSpoiler Alert!Lucas/Ness having THE SAME FINAL SMASH, AND IT STILL SUCKS
And thats just the tip of the proverbial Iceberg, shredding the Titanic of how Excited I was about Final Smashes.
And now I think that I'll just be going right back to -No item 4 stock FFA- like I did in SSBM...
It seems a damn shame, but the game mechanic seems like more of a slapstick distraction than an actual strategy or important part of gameplay...
prove me wrong?
