March 7, 2008 - Excellent - Brawl is a good game, with solid controls, a lot of options, and not-much-better-than-the-last-one-graphics. For the uninterested gamer, it's a curious diversion. For the Nintendo fanatic, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is like manna from heaven.
March 27, 2008 - Excellent - [Super Smash Bros. Brawl is] consistently satisfying over long periods, fulfilling its usual role of dominating a willing crowd's evening into the early hours, and now allowing you to sustain that after everyone's gone home using the Internet.
March 10, 2008 - Excellent - Super Smash Bros. Brawl has lived up to the promise that has been dangled in front of us for so many years and should be snapped up by just about anyone willing to hold a controller.

March 22, 2008 - Excellent - If you have even the slightest interest in fighting games, the Nintendo universe, or multiplayer gaming, then you should definitely give Super Smash Bros. Brawl a try.
March 7, 2008 - Excellent - The gameplay options and customization features are very user-friendly; the presentation is marvelous; and the barrage of single-player and multiplayer options will keep you playing for weeks, months, even years.
March 7, 2008 - Excellent - With the inclusion of mostly lag-free online play and the ability to share screenshots, custom levels, and game replays with friends, [Super Smash Bros. Brawl] offers an unparalleled multiplayer experience previously unseen on the Wii.
March 7, 2008 - Excellent - Super Smash Bros. Brawl isn't a giant leap forward from Super Smash Bros. Melee, but it didn't have to be. This is going to be the game that Wii owners will be playing for the life of the system, and they're going to love every minute of it.
March 6, 2008 - Excellent - [Super Smash Bros. Brawl will] outlast Twilight Princess, it'll outsell Mario Galaxy and it'll most likely stay tucked inside your Wii for untold months to come.
March 8, 2008 - Excellent - Though the subspace emissary is a disappointment, the fast-paced fighting, bountiful modes and customization options, and a deep set of hidden content to be unearthed give it staying power that few other games possess.
March 4, 2008 - Excellent - Unlike so many single-player hits, Metroid and Mario included, you will still be playing and consequently loving Brawl in the months and years to come. It is one of the great multiplayer titles of the generation and simply not to be missed.

June 26, 2008 - Excellent - With an epic online mode, dozens of unlockable characters and stages and hundreds of collectible trophies, Brawl deserves its place in every Wii-owner's collection.
March 8, 2008 - Good - So the questions you need to ask yourself before deciding to invest in Super Smash Bros. Brawl concern your own personal level of love for Nintendo's rich history and your ability to rustle up enough enthusiastic locals to get into the multiplayer. If both of those are in your favor, then this is definitely a game you'll want to add to your collection.
