The only reason I wouldn’t give the game a 10 is because high level play tends to lean towards cowardly gameplay and/or zoning nonsense, which is not fun to watch or be on the receiving end of. I grew up with smash bros for the 64 and recognized this game as a brawler so BRAWLING was the focus, not fireballs and disjointed hit boxes as a priority to win. Ultimate offers the player an insane amount of freedom. With so many characters, there is someone in the roster for everyone. I spent plenty of my college hours playing with buddies in between exams and it was exhilarating. Granted, you can’t just mash buttons like in Tekken and be somewhat decent. Ultimate requires some skill pertaining to how you react and act in the air, the ground, and out of the ring. Edgeguarding has a high focus in this game which can be frustrating to beginners. The game does have a high skill ceiling which also prevents a 10 as its score. It’s not Mario Kart, you can’t become a pro in a short amount of time, so accessibility eludes the game somewhat. The game overall is fantastic though, for any family, group of friends, a tournament, or just by yourself if you wanna sharpen your skills and have fun.

The game is awesome, but the fanbase can p*** off.

A perfect brawl game, WOW !

My 1st Super Smash Bros was on the 3DS, I loved to play this game onmine 'cause it's a fun game, but, this one id different : he is THE perfect Super Smash Bros !

We've got a huge choice of characters that you ( practicly ) have to unlock :

after a fight, you can meet a character that you will fight 'til death.

Once you've beaten him, you'l have him and you will play him WHEN YOU WANT !


Aand, the DLC characters from the 3DS version are free, but you can buy new characters in this version too.

The " Story Mode " is great but I uniquely play to the classic mode ;)

There’s not a lot else to say about Super Smash Bros Ultimate. With the exception of just a few minute nitpicks here and there, this is the ultimate realization of Masahiro Sakurai’s project. This is a love letter to gaming, one mammoth-sized work of art with more content and enjoyment than dozens of games combined. This is going to be the game that’ll finally make Melee players rethink about which Smash Bros game is the best, as there’s no more competition. Ultimate is the game to own on the Nintendo Switch. Your rooftop parties will never be the same.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest accomplishment in the series thus far. It leaves a lasting impact and is hard to put down for even a second when the smashing seems to beckon fighters back. Smashing opponents has never felt so fun, fluid and easy to pick up.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels like a mic drop for the series. It packs in almost every conceivable character and stage, plus a sizable single-player mode. Spirits don't quite land, but the battles feel better than ever. It feels like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be a Switch party staple for a long time to come.
