    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate delivers the fight of a lifetime and an unfaltering experience that is ‘ultimate’ in every way imaginable. It really is something quite special, a celebration that’s rich in gaming history and, polished to perfection, the next must-have game on Nintendo Switch that you won’t want to miss.

    This is the ultimate Super Smash Bros. With an abundance of fighters, stages and modes there is always fun in fighting friends. Even when you're playing by yourself thanks to Classic Mode and World of Light if you play the second one in bite-sized chunks.

    It takes more than a little bit of programming genius to allow a game as simple and accessible as this to still keep the door open for in-depth competitive play.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate arrives at its proposed abyss, full-throated. Imagine a massive pile of candy hemorrhaging pieces off the side of a table as you haphazardly arch your arms around it and attempt to pull in every little bit at once. Though the matchmaking needs work, the better part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an uncontainable fighting game masterpiece.
  7. 70
    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is equal parts greatness and lacking. The sheer wealth of content and great gameplay is commended but there are big holes in what could be a great game.

    If this is Sakurai's last Smash Bros game he went out with a bang. The new adventure mode, World of Light, is the story mode many peopleIf this is Sakurai's last Smash Bros game he went out with a bang. The new adventure mode, World of Light, is the story mode many people wanted. It had a simple but great story, some fun and sometimes overly frustrating challenges, and had some challenging battles. I was a big fan of how we unlocked characters in this game and I some of the newcomers had very interesting play styles that I instantly grew a liking towards. Also, I was in shock and awe over the new classic mode and how each character had a different route they take where each one had different enemies and bosses to fight. There where a lot of callbacks and I love some of the new bosses which I will not go into but they are a lot of fun. Overall this is the best smash bros game to date. Expand
