Even on the XL the characters can be a bit small at times when the camera shifts for larger stages. That aside this game is awesome. The game is very fast and the audio and graphics are both excellent.
The roster is enormous and you can feel the oomph in every character's attacks, something I felt is lacking in other similar games. Like earlier iterations there are great mini games including an Angry Birds knock off and good ol' home-run contest which I sunk an hour into before even touching the main game.
The biggest new feature in this version of smash is the customizable Mii fighters and move sets for the traditional characters. You can re-create some 3rd party or real life homage characters with some imagination. This can be a lot of fun in and of itself.
For anyone that owns a 3ds and not a Wii U that is even remotely interested in fighting games I would highly suggest this game. Wii U owners that aren't big Smash/Nintendo fans I would definitely wait for the Wii U version.… Expand

Torchlight has pleasant cartoon graphics that give the game a magical fun atmosphere and has excellent sound and music to match. The music is extremely similar to the music found in Diablo 1 and 2 but no complains there. There are many other elements that are extremely similar to the Diablo series, the gem crafting system works almost exactly the same but I think they went a little overboard with it as there are I believe seven levels of gem qualities and it can take ages finding the one gem you are missing in order to finish "transmuting" them altogether to get the final product. The prices in the game are a little wonky and gold can be hard to come by. A weapon that you paid 5000 gold for will normally sell back to the vendor for 50-100 gold. This can lead to one broke ass hero through the early stages of the game. I liked the fact that the game has unique animations for many of the weapons (with enchantment glows) and armor in the game, and they did a good job with the animations too. I find it highly amusing that a $5 little indie-esque game like this has better armor animations than the hugely grossing World of Warcraft. My ultimate gripe with the game is that sometimes dungeons will repeat. You'll be in a dungeon with a sense of deja-vu about the layout and once you figure out a stairway, door, exit is in the exact same place you will know that your assumption was well founded. It takes about 10-12 hours to get a character to level 35-40 and beat the main storyline of the game, but again for $5 I highly recommend this game.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Dec 26, 2010A money grab and nothing more. This is an inferior copy of "Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World". The Mario Bros. franchise containsA money grab and nothing more. This is an inferior copy of "Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World". The Mario Bros. franchise contains some of the best and most ground breaking games of all time, but I'm rating this particular package for the Nintendo Wii which is what you're supposed to do when you rate this package, as opposed to "Wow Super Mario Bros. 3 is amazing!!! zomg 10/10". With the capacity of the disc they could have squeezed in many other titles. Super Mario RPG, Mario is Missing, Mario 64 and many more could have been added to make this product an excellent successor to the older versions of Super Mario All Stars. Instead all you get is the oldest version of Super Mario All Stars ported for the Wii. If you want to be a sucker and waste your money on this and come on metacritic spamming 10s for this ripoff please feel free. Say that my review wasn't helpful, I don't mind at all. It just indicates that you aren't intelligent enough to realize that a superior version of this game can be emulated in less than a minute.… Expand

Some of theThe art style of this game is incredible. The music is great and neatly rewinds and fast forwards along with your time controls. Some of the puzzles in this game are CONFUSING! Which I think is a good thing, after sitting there for 10 minutes and you finally figure one out you'll have a "son of a **** moment but it should be worth a good giggle. I only gave it a 9 because the game is a little short even with the speed trials you can unlock when you complete the game.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.0Nov 4, 2010Though it may be a tad pricey to find this in good condition it is probably still worth it. These three games are excellent, with the superbThough it may be a tad pricey to find this in good condition it is probably still worth it. These three games are excellent, with the superb Prime and Corruption and the mediocre Echoes all in one fancy package with uniform updated controls for all three games. The only down side (and this may sound funny) is that they fixed many of the bugs and glitches found in the Gamecube versions of Prime and Echoes. This removes most of the super fun sequence breaks and the games lose a little bit of replay value as a result.… Expand

The game play can get a little monotonous after you see a lot of clones of the same monsters over and over. Some of the puzzles are fun, but a couple of them expect you to die over and over in order to figure them out. It doesn't take very long to re-spawn and take another crack at them but its still annoying seeing a loading screen four times to complete one puzzle that has a special stipulation or asks you to complete it very quickly. If you get this game cheaply like I did then I recommend it.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Nov 4, 2010All these people giving this game a 10? No sirrrrrr...The multiplayer is decent, but I was looking forward to playing those classic GoldeneyeAll these people giving this game a 10? No sirrrrrr...The multiplayer is decent, but I was looking forward to playing those classic Goldeneye levels with the absurd challenge of beating them in 2 minutes while completing all of the objectives. Instead you get to hide behind boxes with awful controls spraying down a cluster of enemies before moving to another cluster of enemies and repeating the process over and over again until the level is over. Please remember, 10/10 is PERFECTION. That means you couldn't find a single thing wrong with the game. All of these people are basically saying that this game is as good as Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII, GTA, Halo etc. etc. and that couldn't be farther from the truth.
This game is a mediocre FPS game and does not live up to the original.… Expand
