This game, simply put, is one of the most fun games you will be able to play this generation of video game consoles. The variety of different modes in this game along with the array of mini games that are put into the game definitely make this game worth the purchase price. With this new version of Smash online mode that been put in which adds for replay value, but the network and when playing on it, at times, can be very laggy.
A lot of new characters were introduced in this game like Pit, and Solid Snake with old friends like Link, Zelda, Mario, and Kirby still returning to the fight. Battles can be done on a life basis or how many kills you get. You can do team play, or everyone for themselves along with items or without. The variety set up in this game makes it a definite party game for everyone and the single player mode takes a good 6 to 7 hours to run through. After that you can enjoy the trial missions and brawl for unlimited replay value.
One of the coolest features about this game is you can literally use any controller or any combo of controller that Nintendo currently makes except for just the nunchuck. You can use a gamecube controller/wavebird, wiimote turned sideways, wiimote and nunchuck, or classic controller. The game plays like a standard fighter in regards that no motion movement is taken advantage of in this game by the wii.
Overall this game rocks and it is a definite purchase for any wii owner.
