I bought this awesome game after playing it at a friend's house. It's really awesome to play, whether I'm alone or with friends. If I'm bored with my computer games and stuff, I plug this into my television and go into adventure mode and play. Sometimes I call over some of my friends, so that we can battle in a free for all or maybe play against some tough artificial intelligence. This is great no matter what age you are, unless you are too young or old to follow simple instruction, this will be really fun for you. I love the nice graphics and funny sounds/taunts the characters make while fighting or such...This game's gameplay was very well thought out, I'm pretty surprised how they worked in the 2d -> 3d thing in. It's pretty much a 2d game, but somehow theres the 3d content which makes it look really nice. I also like the game's adjustability, I could set many different rules or change items, or even change the type of gameplay(Coin, Stock, Time...etc). It is awesome and a must buy!
