Who did you play with? Don't get caught playing with yourself! ha ha
SSB franchise has been the biggest fighting game franchise for fighting games since it's release on N64. Although very different from most other fighting games, and the addition of 4 player fighting does make it seem "crazy", thats also the biggest part of the fun! With just 1 on 1 it's alright but get 2 or more friends playing with you and it levels the playing field because you can't go after someone for long eventually someone will stop your on-slaught with a cheep shot in the middle of you attack. It takes the personal skill out of each character and turns it into an overall strategy fighting game.
As with anygame I could see some people not liking the SSB series. But for anyone who says they do not like it without playing it in "real life 4-player mode" I say they have yet to play it! that is the main part of the game. Not sure if you played it this way or not but that is the highlight of the game.
Although I really liked the single player modes this time around compared to the old ones, alot longer more indepth, too many cut scenes to fill in the gap but atleast they were done well, less would have been better or merge a couple together. What did you think of the solo mode?
