Game Cafe Reviews - Super Smash Bros U

Super Smash Bros U - Available on the Wii U



The Game
One of Nintendo's best franchise's is back on this time on both the 3DS and Wii U. For this review though I'll just be focusing on the Wii U version. From the opening video the game is just beautiful to look at, Sakurai and his team really out done themselves on this one. If you have played any of the other games in the series then you know what to expect. For those who don't know, Smash Bros is at its core a love letter to Nintendo fans. It is a 2D fighter that answers that most basic of questions, "Who would win in a fight, Mario or Link? Samus or Zelda?" It is a game that is the very definition of easy to play but hard to master. The series in and of itself is beloved by even the hardcore competitive gamer scene, as evidenced by matches seen at EVO. There are a plethora of ways to play and virtually every controller that is usable on the U is available for the game. However, if you were lucky enough to get a gamecube adapter, you can hook up a gamecube controller and play the game with the best controller ever (my opinion of course). There are a variety of  modes for you to play through and while I don't like a few of them they still can be fun for people. The gameplay is tight and once you find your ideal controller option it is easy to just pick up and play. The game supports both local and online multiplayer and both are extremely fun. The online portion can be played with friends or anyone and is customizable as well. Create a stage from Brawl is back and while fun does feel limited. One of the things that I don't like was the fact that some of the modes are not playable online. Some of the modes in the game are screaming for it to be online. For example, 8 player Smash and Smash Tour, feel like they would be amazing online. All in all it is a complete package. The game is not broken in the slightest, boasts a wealth of content, and you can easily spend months trying to beat certain events and challenges.



For Parents
Smash is rated E10+ for cartoon violence. Its kind of like watching Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies as some of the items are cartoony in nature. Other than that its a fun game that is a blast to play and can easily have people playing for hours on end.



The Verdict
This game is getting a FULL PRICE from me. It is packed with content and it will take time to get every unlockable and every trophy in the game. It's music is amazing and the sheet amount of customization in game is massive. This is a game that I can honestly say should be in every Nintendo owner's gaming library.



**There is a lot of stuff I left out of this review. Don't worry though I have a new segment starting on my YouTube channel called Game Cafe Tutorials. In Tutorials, I will give advice and pointers while playing. I will also have guests from time to time join me and give their own personal pointers in certain games.**
