Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl may be basic on the surface, but the exhilarating gameplay and edge of your seat action more than makes up for its lack of content by providing players with a fun platform fighter that rewards those who take the time to learn its surprisingly complex combat mechanics. I just wish online multiplayer was more active (come find me online and let’s fight! I main CatDog).
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is full of quirky references, easter eggs and cameos of many popular Nicktoons franchises. But once you manage to see past that, it's easy to notice what a shallow and empty game this is. Sure, it can be fun at times, but the magic dies down quite easily.
Pretty amazing game, definitely has the potential to strive in the near future if given attention by the developers. It’s in the early phase as I write this, there were some broken mechanics on release but the developers had already fix them within days of it’s discovery. As the meta grows more discoveries will appear. Hopefully they are all good but in case of bad discoveries, I am certain the developers will handle it properly as they did so recently.
A game clearly made by Smash aficionados, with great gameplay based on solid and layered mechanics. It's weak when it comes to content, and nothing to write home about from a technical standpoint, but its solid netcode and good combat system are more than enough to capture a loving community of fighting game fans.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is, well, fine. It will provide a good few hours of harmless fun and raise more than a few smiles in the nostalgia sector of the cortex as Reptar beats on April O'Neil. Underneath that initial sheen however is nothing of real interest. Thankfully, support seems to be very much active and maybe the initial issues will be focused on to provide a more well-rounded, in-depth experience. For now, though, the shadow of its inspiration looms heavy and ensures that this will not be challenging for any place in the top tier of party'esque fighters for some time.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl doesn’t bring anything new to the table, instead offering a certainly competent if not hugely exciting brawler with a confusing roster of characters cynically chopped up seemingly for future monetisation and very little to actually fight for in terms of unlockables for the fans. The fundamentals are here, and the Sports modes are terrific fun, but there isn’t much else to get too excited about when the content included is this lacking.
Disappointed in some of the smash bro community members, who are purposely giving this game a bad name, simply because they won't "betray" Smash bros. I think its great a dedicated company decided to make a really well put platform fighter game together. Game hasn't even been out for a week and they already had a patch fix today fixing some things. This game is amazing.
This game has always been quite fun, I mean in 2021 I played this a lot and had a great time, but ever since 2022 the game fell down hard,like i cant play causal anymore, but since the dlc was announced i came back to it, and the game was good! I could play causal ALOT easier than before, and the gamplay felt kind of good but a little clunky. The graphics aren't great but still passable. the roster is pretty big and cool, and now that they added voice acting, more characters, items, and its made the game get more players to play.
First of all, out of the gate I have to throw this out there. The game is highly over-rated and without the Nickelodeon License no one would've ever willfully bought it, and that's how I review it based on what the core game and the presentation gives you.
I appreciate how the devs tried to show their enthusiasm of brawl games and they tried to make a compelling combat system, but it's not very great, almost mashy and wacky. there is almost no whiff recovery on many moves and you can just freely jump around and land while throwing stuff out.
Most animation are good but that's it, no any unique throws and it lacks characters actually showcasing their special powers, instead they resort to simple melee combat like punching and kicking.
The best thing about the game is rollback Netcode and for that I give the game more than I wanted.
Now for the things that make this game super forgettable and undeserving of the score it currently has.
Sound - No voice acting, awful soundtrack, generic hit sounds. meaning that overall the game got nothing to deliver when it comes to sound.
Presentation - cheap looking menus, characters look ok but there is no any alternate costumes or unlockables. The stages are also super underwhelming.
Game modes and tweaks - here you pretty much got nothing other than the standard vs modes.
no special modes, no story mode, no nothing else.
Sound: 0 out of 3
Presentation:0 out of 3
Gameplay:2 out of 4
I give it a 3 out of 10
