    "Every now and then, a game comes along that is entirely must-have for every owner of the platforms it is released on. Last holiday season, Nintendo struck that kind of chord with Super Mario Galaxy, and now, less than six months later, that feat has been repeated with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Its simple controls and gameplay make it remarkably accessible to beginners yet still appealing to Smash Bros. veterans. With the inclusion of mostly lag-free online play and the ability to share screenshots, custom levels, and game replays with friends, it offers an unparalleled multiplayer experience previously unseen on the Wii. Mix in all of the unlockable characters and stages, the lengthy single-player adventure, and the exorbitant number of collectible trophies and stickers to find, and you've got yourself the recipe for a game that, if its predecessors are any indication, people will be playing for years to come."

    9.0 Presentation
    An impressive lineup of stages and characters, including some from third parties. Amazing soundtrack. Gorgeous cut-scenes. Simple menus. Long front-load and lacking online options.

    8.5 Graphics
    Looks like an enhanced version of Melee. Improved character models and backgrounds. Everything runs in 480p, 16:9 and at 60 frames. Even so, the graphics definitely lack detail in areas.

    10 Sound
    One of the best soundtracks ever created. Sound effects, meanwhile, are perfectly punchy and well-suited to the characters and environments.

    9.5 Gameplay
    Tight control, more balanced character move sets, new final smashes and more. We're not particularly fond of the single-player mode, but multiplayer is so good we just don't care.

    10 Lasting Appeal
    Destined to be played for years thanks to spectacular offline and online multiplayer modes. One of the great four-player games of all time.

    Why cant I play it? I could buy a wii if I had money to wipe my a** with. That's what i'd be doing if I bought a wii anyway.

    copped it
    it's pretty cool
    not much into side-scrolling fighters, but this is keeping me in it
    playable with 4 different controllers
    the wii-mote with or without the nunchuck (2)
    a gamecube controller
    or the wii 'classic' controller

    online didn't connect the only time I tried it :(
