Brawl Official Trailer 1. Critic Reviews. Score distribution:. Positive: 80 out of I got my Wii with a special offer, and it came with Super Smash Bros.
From the minute I started playing it, I was hooked. Brawl is definitely the best game in the Smash Bros. The animation in the cut scenes was outstanding, it really made the characters come alive. The controls were easy and easy to remember, and the Final Smashes were absolutely amazing! Add the two things above to trophies, stickers, music, and the ability to play old Nintendo games, and you've got yourself a winner!
I enjoyed the story mode, and liked the fact that Brawl is the first Smash Bros. I loved the WiFi, brawling with people that don't even live in the same time zone as me was really fun. If a fourth Smash Bros. It is probably the best fighting game out there, and it is definitely fun when there are four people brawling.

Players select a character from a wide assortment of game series and duke it out with each other. Characters don't have a health bar typical to standard fighting games. Instead, Brawl uses a percentage system for dealing with damage.
Basically, the more damage that is dealt, the higher their percentage meter goes up, and the higher that meter is, the easier it is to be knocked off the stage. Players will earn points for smashing people off of the levels, and lose points when they got knocked off by an opponent, so battles boil down to trying to hit opponents of while simultaneously trying to stay on the level. Alternatively a lot of players will opt to play stock matches where every player has a set number of lives and then players will try and reduce their opponents lives to zero and be the last man standing.
Players have both a regular attack button and a special attack button. The regular attack button is usually a fast attack button, but holding down the button and pressing the analog stick either left, right, down or up can unleash a "Smash Attack," which will send an opponent flying towards the edge of a stage, increasing the chance of defeating an opponent and gaining points.
For a quick uncharged Smash Attack, the player can also quickly flick the right stick on the Classic Controller the C-stick on the Gamecube controller in the direction the player wants to attack. Each character has their own unique special attacks that are mapped to a specific direction on the analog stick. Special attacks do more damage than regular attacks, but often don't have the Smash property to send an opponent flying.
Special attacks are thus most often used to rapidly drive up an opponents percentage meter until a Smash Attack can launch them out of the arena. A character's upwards special attack is known as a recovery and is usually used to help a player make his way back to the stage after he has been knocked flying, for example Pit will start flying for a limited time and Marth shoots upwards in the air attacking with his sword.
Special attacks vary from counters, ranged attacks, combination attacks, powerful attacks and more. Staying on one of the game's 41 different stages, in between Smash Attacks, special attacks, and items, is not a simple task. Each of the levels, based off of other classic Nintendo levels, can do just as much damage to a player as an opponent.
Completing the microgame correctly will earn your character a power up such as invincibility or a boost, while failing the microgame will punish players with things like taking damage to being stunned for a limited time. Many of the stages have different random effects that will activate throughout the battle.
One of the biggest changes from the previous games in the series is the introduction of Smash Balls. If they are turned on these items will appear randomly on the stage, and when broken by the player, allow the character to perform a Final Smash. When a character has a smash move stored the will be surrounded by a glow and you can hold it for as long as you want until you choose to use it by pressing the B button.
If you are attacked while you have a Final Smash move stored the Smash Ball can be beaten out of you and another character can attack it to gain a Final Smash while you lose your own. Every single character has their own unique Final Smash for example, Samus fires a powerful laser beam, called Zero Beam, while Link unleashes a flurry of sword strikes in the Final Smash Trifroce Slash and while some characters may share similar ones i. Fox , Falco , and Wolf all summon a Landmaster tank to the field , they are each given different properties to help differentiate from one another Falco's tank has better jump jets allowing it to ascend much quicker but slowest when grounded, Wolf's has stronger attacks but doesn't last as long, and Fox's is the most balanced of the three.
A new game-type in Brawl is the single player story mode, The Subspace Emissary. Subspace Emissary is a side-scrolling action game that expands on Melee 's adventure mode by including a plot told to the player through cutscenes. The game mode, sporting over 30 stages, takes the player through many different parts on the Nintendo universe such as on the Halberd , all the while the well-known heroes fight to save their world from being sucked into Subspace.
As the player progresses, more and more characters will be added to their party which will unlock the character for play in the game's other modes. This mode is one of the best way to gain trophies with many that are exclusive to The Subspace Emissary and by using the brand new trophy capture feature by turning enemies and bosses you encounter into trophies. This game mode features several unique aspects not seen in other Smash Bros. Two of the most notable enhancements are stickers and the team system.
Stickers, which are gained during play, allow the player to improve the stats for a character of their choice. These improvements are only usable in Subspace Emissary and do not carry over to the other game types. The team system allows the player to select up to four characters to use during a particular level. Although the selection is limited to a few characters at first, the player is always able to choose the order in which the characters are used.
Cooperative play is also supported. When played in this way, the secondary player is able to assist the main player along the way but the camera always remains focused on that main player. Lives are shared, so players must work together to make sure they don't lose all of them. If player two drifts too far away from the main player he can hold down a button to quickly teleport over to the main player much like the cooperative play in most Kirby titles for staying off-screen will slowly deal damage to the player.
Most characters from Super Smash Bros. Melee have returned the only exceptions being Dr. It is also the first game to include guest characters from third-party franchises including Sonic from the Sonic the Hedgehog series and Snake from the Metal Gear series. Each of the game's hidden characters can be unlocked in one of three criteria: by either playing through the game's Adventure Mode, by completing a certain amount of Vs.
Mode battles with the last character unlocked at matches , or through a certain alternate criterion often revolving around completing Classic Mode. All unlockable characters must also be defeated in a special one-on-one one-stock match in order to be unlocked. There are a total of 41 stages in Brawl, with 31 all new stages with remakes of Battlefield, Final Destination , Pokemon Stadium etc.
There is also a stage creator that lets players create, play, download and share unlimited amounts of stages. The game starts with 29 stages unlocked, but requires the player to complete certain tasks to unlock the remaining In this game there were only six items from Melee that did not make a return. In Super Smash Bros. Assist Trophies are items that can be used in Super Smash Bros. Similar to Poke Balls, Assist Trophies when picked up and activated will summon a random character into battle.
Brawl's soundtrack consists of over songs. The separates each song into categories of their respective series:. C - The Legend of Zelda franchise. N - Animal Crossing franchise. T - Super Smash Bros. U - Sonic the Hedgehog. W - Super Smash Bros. X - Super Smash Bros. Brawl General Themes. Some songs were intended to be in Brawl but were removed for copyright issues and other unknown reasons.
They are not included in the game, but an intended list has been salvaged through means of going through the game's on-disc files. Trophies also appear in Super Smash Bros. They are essentially unaltered from Melee, though there are many more, to be more accurate. When players get enough trophies, they unlock something.
To obtain character trophies, players must finish Classic mode with that character. To obtain characters' Final Smash trophies, players must finish All-Star mode with that character. In addition, some new ways of receiving trophies have been added. Some trophies, such as the Subspace Army characters' trophies, are not available at the Coin Launcher.
Players will have to enter Adventure Mode, fight an enemy, and throw a trophy stand "smash plate" in Japan at it when its hit points is critical in order to capture it as a trophy. Additionally, in the Subspace Emissary, the storyline states that fighters who fall in this world in battle are forcibly reverted back to Trophies.
Also, if you manage to get a Celebi from a poke-ball, it will drop some trophies. However, there is only a 1 in chance of it happening. It is also interesting to note that the trophies of the smashers in the Subspace Emissary are a lot shinier than those gained by beating Classic Mode.
Like its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl has been a popular game for tournaments. Free-for-all mode is rarely or near to never used in tournament play. Tournaments generally take place in double-elimination brackets. At the time of the game's launch, there were many discussions concerning which rule set to employ in tournaments. Due to Super Smash Bros. Brawl's inherent similarity to Super Smash Bros.
Melee, the Melee rule set was often used during the earliest tournaments. This rule set consisted of:. However, tournament organizers and players quickly noticed that the pacing of Brawl was considerably slower than that of Melee. In Melee, characters, particularly Falco Lombardi, Marth and Fox McCloud, could trap opponents in combos and then "spike" the term used for a technique that hits the enemy sharply downwards them off the stage, leading to quick deaths if either player made the mistake of entering these combos.
In Brawl, these combos were not present at this stage in the metagame, and because of this matches took longer. For this reason Brawl tournament organizers generally choose to lower the stock and time to 3 stock, 8 minutes. There has been discussions of lowering that even further, due to the length of matches using some characters. Many of the game's more "inventive" stages are deemed unsuitable for tournament play, due to excessively random elements, odd layouts, glitches that can be exploited in the stage, and character-specific benefits belonging to the stage.
These stages are separated into "counterpicks" and "banned stages. An example of a neutral stage is "Smashville," an example of a counterpick, "Frigate Orpheon," and of a banned stage, " Rumble Falls. Certain stages are invalidated due to ways they can be exploited by the player. Hyrule Temple, for example, is banned because a Sonic player could hit the opponent once, and then run away until time runs out. It is impossible for any character to catch him if the Sonic player does not make a mistake.
For this reason, Shadow Moses and many other stages are banned. The aforementioned Dedede chain throw is not banned in tournament play, due to the fact that King Dedede himself would have to be banned in that case. It is also not unique: there are several chain throws in the game, however none of them are banned for the same reason.
There are currently ten known infinite grabs:. The planned Evolution fighting game tournament has sparked a remarkable amount of controversy over its choice of rules, particularly between Evo's own forums, Shoryuken, and Smash World Forums, a forum frequented by many big-name players in the Smash community, such as Gimpyfish, Forward and ChillinDude. This was caused by Evo's tournament organizer and owner, "MrWizard," deciding that instead of following the guidelines of the Smash World Forums community for tournament rules, he would try something new.
This mainly involved items being turned onto the "medium" setting, and the inclusion of Smash Balls. Items have become a "taboo" in the smash community due to their random nature items are relegated to certain spawn points but follow no pattern in which point they spawn at.
Items are disliked in professional circles because the mindset required for tournament play does not have the skill required to deal with the random nature of items. For this reason many professional Brawl players were outraged that such a large and prestigious tournament would change the rules so strongly. Brawl on a tournament level has been criticized since release by tournament players and casual players alike, for several reasons. One of the principal issues for tournament players is the inclusion of "tripping," a mechanic which causes the player to have a small chance of their character tripping and falling down whenever the analog stick is held completely in one direction.
Another problem competitive players have with the game is the lack of combos compared to Melee , as well as the elimination of glitches that took advantage of the physics engine such as "wave dashing". The lack of combos is generally attributed to the lack of hit stun i. Casual players have a much different complaint with the tournament game and its players, in that some consider people who use such things as King Dedede's chain grab and other exploits in order to win are "not having fun.
