    It's Super Smash Bros. for Cartoon Network fans. Get the real games starting with the latest installments on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U instead of buying this.

    It's a perfectly decent game, with a few flaws including unbalanced characters, a repetitive story mode, and laggy multiplayer, but Smash triumphs over it in every way. Just get SSB4.

    The main gripe about this game is that it didn't have new characters (i.e Finn, Jake, Mordecai, Rigby, Gumball etc etc). This game is meant to remember the old characters like Chowder and Numbah 1. There is a wide selection of characters, along with good gameplay and graphics. Though, I recommend the re-release for the consoles, as it has a larger selection of characters (Johnny BravoThe main gripe about this game is that it didn't have new characters (i.e Finn, Jake, Mordecai, Rigby, Gumball etc etc).

    Horrible Super Smash Bros Clone! I mean it! What´s the point to unite all of your favorite characters from TV and copy the smash formula if they can´t get it right?

    The game includes a lot of great shows like Johnny Bravo, Kids Next Door, Samurai Jack, and a lot more classic Cartoon Network cartoons. The game play is like a downgraded version of Super Smash Brothers and the characters start to get boring somewhat quick although the story line is great!

    A decent game. if you are a cartoon network fan, you will love it. The Gameplay is alright (Not even close to Smash Bros.) . The 3-d aspect is fantastic and adds to the game. The main problem though, is that this is the most glitchy game have ever played. You can't go through 30 minutes without the screen freezing up in story mode. The game was a let down for me.

Without the glitches, would've given this game a 7, but sadly the glitches make an otherwise good game... suck. Expand

    If you watch Cartoon Network during the day you may like it, if you prefer their Adult Swim shows avoid.

    Super Smash Bros in all but name, this basic fighter just doesn't do enough with its fighting engine or character-rich licence.

    Second rate Smash Bros. with a first-rate cast. Fun for a bit, but quickly gets tired. [June 2012, p.83]
