The graphics are the best I've seen on the 3DS, and my word does this game sound good. I seriously use this instead of my MP3 player now.
The gameplay is the most balanced ever, with some characters being toned down a bit (looks at metaknight). I've played for over 40 hours and only lost one match because of circle pad problems.
All the unlockable characters are great, and most have a unique gimmick like little mac's KO meter, or Rosalina and Luma's ability to separate, and actually make it work, unlike Ice climbers, who were broken as hell in Brawl.
Smash run is SOOOOOOO addictive, and I would have bought the game just for this. There have been 1 or 2 online problems, but most are because of my bad internet, so I don't find myself frustrated.
Even if it's left once the Wii U version comes out, I think it should be a criminal offence not to own and love this game.… Expand

I'm not that good at it, but everything is so balanced and well-executed The soundtrack rivals SSB Brawl's, and the graphics are stunning for a 3DS game. If you don't buy this, you don't have the right to call yourself a gamer. It is almost perfect… Expand

another qick note: at time of writing, I have only played the game on easy difficulty and started normal, but am still trying for a 100% completion rating.
The Woderful 101 is EPIC. everything about it is brilliant.
The gameplay is absolutely horrendos for around 2 hours. The fixed camera is annoying, the controls are unresponsive, and the game has no real flow. But then, everything clicked for me. After replaying the first few miisions with extra abilities, I found myself playing what was at the time, the best wii u game to date.
The attacks are fast and varied, and as you progress, new ones are unlocked just at the right time, so the game never feels repetitive. some of my favourite abilities are the sword and bomb, which both obliterate enemies. This is very hard to write, so the rest of the review may feel shallow.
At the start, the only real story is: Aliens are attacking, you've got powers, go stop them. But once the alien organisatin GEATHJERK show their side of the story, it almost takes a shadow of the collosus feel.
the artstyle just screams saturday morning cartoon, and gives the game so much charm, it's not even funny. What is funny however, is the writing. Each of the main characters has a distinct personality andonce again, this just dds to the game's charm as it's just hillarious at points.
To conclude, The wonderful 101 is extremely challenging but rewarding, esecially due to the fact that higher difficulties change the levels slightly, and can at first be a nightmare, but lets you work out your own methods at your own pace, with excellent bosses and design.
Almost perfect: 98/100… Expand
