    I believe this is one of maybe 4 games to recieve a perfect score from Nintendo Power. Although the review may be slightly bias.. they only gave Galaxy a 9.5. So.. good deal.

    every review i've seen so far(bout 4 or 5) of brawl has been 10/10

    if all goes well than brawl will surpass oot and galaxy in terms of ratings

    A 10? I Would Have Thought As Much With It Bein SSBB!
    But I Think There Must Be Some Bad Points On It...There Is No Such Thing As A Perfect Game To Me...

    well this is all good to here. if mark bozon from ign reviews this game then it wont get a 9.5. simply because he said that this game was not better than galaxy and metroid prime 3 in his opinion. the only issue i have with this game is the clones. but even if the reviews were terrible i doubt it would hold back sales.

    all you need to do is read these forums to know its far from perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!! guessing on the fact of what other people who have played it have said and what weve seen it cant be more then a 8? youd have to be on crack to give it a 10 which in their spare time waiting for the game to come out so we get REAL reviews they probably have nothing better to do.

    The only reason why you'd read that on these forums is because we are being highly critical of a game that we know we will buy and likely love. This game is in no way an 8. (At least from what I've seen)

    highly critical? do i need to point out the already known uninspiring aspects? the most important one being the real lack of new chars or old chars with new movesets.

    Thanks nic. I apologize for taking your thread semi-off topic, but has there been word as to about how many hours long the Subspace is? A while back it was rumoured that it'd be over ten, but that was before release.

    Please please please please please no spoilers but that.

    @Lugia- So, what you're saying is that the game loses two points because you don't like the roster?

    Seems fair.

    @Levesque- Well, the only info I've seen so far is that one of the leakers was 53% in and had played over 5 hours. So, I'd say at least 10 hours of gameplay is realistic.

    I strongly doubt its not a 10/10, but for the sake of arguement I rather see one thats not Nintendo.

    But either way im buying this game

    its not just the roster. lack of strategy involved in battles, SSE sounds sort of faulty as a storyline, an assist trophy is like another pokeball... some of them are alright ideas but with items its getting to the point of total spam and it seems like some of the people grading this game forget its the 3rd in a series of games. i dont know about the rest of you but ill be playing the game in a matter of hours like i always had it.

    Well, I can't say I'm surprised brawl got a perfect score... everything I've seen so far is bloody brilliant. I wish they would have told us exactly what needed a bit more polish though, so sakurai can improve upon it for SSB 4!

    ^SSB is not planned to go on forever.

    Sakurai has said this in the past, and has gone on to say that this is the reason why they try to make every SSB as if it were the last.

    In fact, at the beginning stages, they were just planning to remake Melee with online play.

    It just sounds like to me that you read too many spoilers...

    But, you know what you should really do before griping over a game you've never played that's gotten perfect reviews from all reviewers that have reviewed it thus far... you should play it..
    I would have absolutely hated that idea. From what I've read and seen in videos, Brawl looks to be a completely different fighter than Melee. Actually, Nintendo Power said the controls feel smoother. I've heard the game is more floaty, and, if it's true that all of the glitches are gone, the game will be a completely different experience.

    So, what I'm saying is.. I would not have been cool with a Melee remake.

    nintendo power slightly bias? they pretty much rely on Nintendo to sell their magazine. Still they do have to reward games like Mario Party lower scores. I'm getting the game whatever people may say but harder graders like gamespot or ign have more meaningful reviews.
    EDIT: I don't think anyone should believe this will be the last SSB-type game, what Sakurai is saying is just another marketing strategy. "Get it while you can". That is until another 3 or 4 years pass.
