So I played Smash Bros. Brawl for several hours today and loved it. The game plays a little slower than melee, but its just as fun, just as competitive and just as exciting as it ever was. I thought the new characters were pretty good, but I only played a few of them. Pokemon Trainer, Pit and Metaknight were all great, Dedede was OK, I didn’t really care for Olimar or Lucas. Of course we didn’t have all the characters unlocked but during our multiplay we were able to get Ness, Marth and Luigi. A lot of the new stages are really interesting and fun to play on, no really clunkers. I played with just the remote once, sucked. Gamecube controllers are the way to go. That’s really all there is to it, it’s the same insanely addictive multiplayer we’ve come to love. Can’t wait to get started on the singleplayer this spring break.
