Even if you're alone, the sheer amount of options, trophy collecting and hidden characters make this game worth playing again and again. It's easy to learn but incredibly challenging to master and collect all the trophies.
One of the greatest games ever made back in the day my friend and I played this game nonstop The GameCube will always be my favorite Nintendo Console because of the weird design, and a good selection of games And, of course, my friend says every time we play, smash brothers LET SMASH!!!
