i had an old thread on this topic that i thought i'd bring up again now that brawl is out to the public and a better look at each character's move set has been taken. to me there seem to be A LOT of characters that would all fall under the same tier bracket (many kudo's to nintendo for this) and no characters seem overly versatile to me. the balance in the game from the video's i've seen is astouding. i was proved wrong in my thinking that snake would be low tier and i'm very happy about this. the only weak character i've seen so far seems to be dededee...although the only gameplay videos with him in it are very far from pro so i'll reserve full judgement till i see him in action. and as expected luigi, kirby, peach, and bowser seem to have gotten major upgrades since melee. any thoughts?
