    uno dei migliori giochi competitivi di sempre rispetto ai recenti smash questo era molto piĆ¹ veloce e dinamico fantastico per divertirsi e per sfidarsi con gli amici se ad oggi fose possibile giocare online ad un gioco cosi farei fatica a staccarmici

    Its a clone to say the least. It just copied the mechanics from other fighters. The graphics from Brawl are better. My friend is wrong when says this game great. When Nintendo sends there Super Smash games, they're not sending their finest. Some, I assume are good ones (Atleast Brawl had a story). 0/10 atleast Rambo had a story.

    It's utter crap, not smooth in gameplay. Graphics could be alot better animation wise, very jerky. 2 Player crap. Don't get me wrong I own a gamecube and am a fan but not of this game!

    Where do i begin? the one player mode is long, boring and makes no sense, and to complete that with every character would be boring as hell. Multiplayer is crap unless you have someone to play it with.

    If you're a child, or get beaten by children on real fighters (DOA, Soul Calibur, Tekken, Killer Instinct) then you will enjoy this button masher fest. If you always destroy your friends in real fighters, then play this one with them, they will actually have a chance.

    Overrated crap. No storyline involvement at all. It's hack and slash gameplay is horribly repetitive, and the game relies on this battle system. The gaming world is a horrible place for this game to be rated at even a B level.

    Quite possibly the most overrated game ever. Is it that Gamecube owners are so desperate for games that they inflate grades for the ones they do have? There is 0 depth and the game gets old very, very fast.

    SSBM is a truly great game with fun and interesting gameplay, great characters and simple but amazing level design. It also has a great competitive scene. If you like fighting games, give this a try.
    I give this game Frankfurt / 10

    An exotic cocktail of entertainment for Nintendo fans, who will slurp up every last drop, and if you want to talk about longevity, I've had this game on import for about six months and I still haven't finished it.

    A Nintendo fanatic's dream, if only for the exhaustive gallery of collectible Nintendorabilia. [Feb 2003, p.96]
  3. Seeing the ducks from "Duck Hunt" or the 2 dimensional Ice-climbers (also featured as playable characters) will have you praising Nintendo for their kindness in bringing back some long forgotten gaming moments.
