Any top Nintendo Wii games list will have Super Smash Bros Brawl on it. It should be a legal requirement that anyone with a Nintendo Wii or Wii U has to have this game. The Smash Bros series is one of the flagship series for Nintendo and this third game in the series is one that millions of people fell in love with.

Meet The Gang

This is a series that is all about its fan service. Super Smash Bros Brawl for the Nintendo Wii kicked up the fan service to level 100! Not only do you have your mainstays such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, and Pikachu. This game added in many new characters to the series such as Diddy Kong, Lucario and Meta Knight. Nintendo went a step further and looked beyond their own doors adding in characters like Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega and Solid Snake from Konami.

The Subspace Embassy

Until the most recent Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Super Smash Bros Brawl had the best single-player mode in the entire franchise. To be honest, I feel that it may still be the best! This is a huge single-player mode that features some side-scrolling style levels along with a ton of battles against various characters and bosses. What makes this mode such a joy to play through is the actual story. While it is not exactly easy to follow thanks to the lack of voice acting or even text. It is told via this breathtaking cut scenes that are some of the best the Nintendo Wii has to offer.

Get Ready To Fight!

The fighting action is Super Smash Bros is all about having fun. It is the kind of game that anyone can pick up, play and have a lot of fun with. However, there is more depth here than many people give it credit for and if you take the time to learn a character, you will be surprised at how deep a fighting game this can be. There are many different single-player and multiplayer modes. You can just play the normal mode if you want to unlock characters and see the different endings. But there are other modes you can do as well. It should go without saying that this is an awesome party game and no matter the skill level of everyone involved, Super Smash Bros Brawl would be a hit at any game night.

Look At Donkey Kong’s Fur!

Despite the Nintendo Wii not being all that much more powerful than the Nintendo GameCube. I find this to be a beautiful looking game. The different character models all look the best they have ever looked (well up to this point) and the different backgrounds are truly spectacular. Nintendo/Hal went all out with the levels in this game and the fan service is just insane. It is not just the characters and the levels that make this a Nintendo fans dream. The soundtrack is full of classic tunes and some new ones that will rock your speakers. Not to mention all the fun trophies you can collect which showcase every end of the Nintendo spectrum from their humble beginnings to what was available on the Nintendo Wii at the time of release.

I love the Super Smash Bros series and I love Super Smash Bros Brawl. This is one of my top ten games for the console and I think it is still a lot of fun to play now. It has a ton of characters; awesome levels and the Subspace Embassy is a lot of fun to play through. Of course, multiplayer is a blast and something that never gets old.

Game Reviews

Rumors continue to circulate that Nintendo's four-way fighter won't make it out this year. But if you ask Hideo Kojima, Brawl is ready to go right now. The Metal Gear series creator recently had a chance to play it (remember, Metal Gear's Solid Snake makes an appearance in this one), and according to Kojima Productions' podcast host Ryan Payton, Kojima said, "The game already feels very complete and very fun. Nintendo could probably put it out now and sell millions of copies."
