Super Smash Bros. Melee review

Reviewed December 31, 1969

Zack M says: "Of course, Super Smash Brothers was all about multiplayer, and that hasn't changed in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Nothing beats a well-fought match against four of your best friends, pulverizing eachother, taunting eachother with your elite skills."

aganar says: "Deep within Nintendo's HQ where EAD and Intelligence reside stands another company not exactly up to their quality. They are called HAL. This, Super Smash Bros. Melee, was their masterpiece. In all of their games I have played this is the most fun, the most polished, the most fun, of them. "

Reviewed June 24, 2004

cyper says: "Back in 1999, Nintendo and HAL presented us with an unexpected gem of a game called Super Smash Brothers: an insanely fun, innovative 2D fighter involving a dozen Nintendo mascots as combatants. A sequel seemed a good idea to all, and HAL – belatedly – obliged, with Super Smash Bros. Melee appearing as one of the big near-launch titles for the GameCube. The two-and-a-half year wait was a long one for anxious fans – the dearth of other fighters on the Nintendo 64 saw to that – but Melee has made ..."

goldenvortex says: "Nintendo decided to take a trip down memory lane again. After the success of Super Smash bros on the N64, they probably thought it would be a good idea to revamp that popular game on the big N’s new (at the time) creation. After gathering the key stars and grouping them together for the first encounter, Nintendo decided to go even further into their library of forgotten and not so forgotten classics. The N64 version provided the player with a substandard cast of fighters, focusing on the true ..."

mortis765 says: "The most anticipated Gamecube game of 2001 was, without a doubt, Smash Bros Melee. The original was hailed as one of the best multi player games for the N64... the ultimate party game right next to Golden Eye. The original was also a homage to Nintendo, featuring 12 classic Nintendo characters from Mario to Link, Kirby to Pikachu, even Captain Falcon and Ness. It had classic music themes and everything. But while the multi player was fun, the one player mode was...lacking. Melee improves ..."

ratking says: "Super Smash Brothers Melee is in no way the perfect game in my mind. It is a great game, do not get me wrong, but I do not find it near as good as its predeccesor which changed the fighting genre in itself. However this one shows some weaknesses not apparent in the original, however many improvements. "

Reviewed December 31, 1969

zoxea says: "Firstly, I will state that this isn't a fighting game. Now, let me now explain why it is far from worship, something which shouldn't be very difficult to do. I simply cannot understand why this game is so overrated ? Is it because of a lack of titles in the genre on the GameCube or is it just because the game is by Nintendo and it's the sequel to Super Smash Bros. ? Either way, SSBM falls short of being a worthy addition to the library and I don't recommend it to anyone. Now, I realize that what..."
