Love the game...but one copy of the game will not work. I’ve tried cleaning it but it still does not work. So be weary.

Ninendo's Super Smash Bros series has been very popular among avid gamers, gamers who are looking for a quick game jam-packed with action, and competitive people who simply want to have a battle against each other. Nevertheless, Nintendo's Super Smash Bros for the Wii U has proved that it has a place in this fast-paced brawling series. With new characters in the roster, more of the characters' Final Smashes (along with new and improved ones), an online and up-to-16-people-multiplayer mode, and better resolution (along with frame rate), Smash Bros for the Wii U, in my opinion, is currently the epitome of how a fighting game should be (until the next game releases...of course). I suggest that if you have a Wii U or 3DS (and you have never played this game), you should consider trying it out.

Super Smash Bros. For Wii U is so far my second funnest game (I like Splatoon :D). The reasons are: Splatoon has ranks and levels (I'm a level 34 and rank A+) and when you move up a level you can buy weapons with in-game money. But in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U you only do battles again and again and it gets boring. Oh and by the way my name is cool kid in Splatoon. Bye!

Super Smash Bros a game series that is beloved by many gamers alike. I mean, who doesn't like using their favourite Nintendo characters to fight in various battles? I know I do! Super Smash Bros for Wii U is the fourth instalment in the series, and it is definitely the best one yet. This time, new fighters join the battle such as the Villager from Animal Crossing and Super Mario's Rosalina. Not only are the new characters in this game amazing, players can buy even more fighters from the Nintendo eShop, such as fan-favourite Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 7. But it doesn't stop there. This game also introduces 8-player smash, a game mode where up to 8 players can play at a time, whereas in previous titles only four players could join. As you can see, this game is best played with others, and while the single-player modes are enjoyable, nothing beats playing alongside friends on a Friday night. Luckily, the game includes an online mode, so you can play with other players via the Internet! So what are you waiting for? If you haven't played this game yet and own a Wii U, I certainly suggest that you check out this game.

Smash 4 for the Wii U is a unique fighting game that allows you to play as your favourite Nintendo (and other) characters. The mechanics in this game are very polished and prove to be much more competitive than its predecessor “Super Smash Bros Brawl”. With the largest roster to date, this fighting game has come a long way since the N64, and is really a main reason you should own a Wii U. Countless hours can be poured into this game whether it be casually with friends, or competitively in tournaments. I found that the new 8-man smash can get a little chaotic, but that is easily avoidable and doesn’t really take-away from the game. Smash 4 for the Wii U is a must-have in my opinion and on its own can justify owning a Wii U. Overall I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this to friends and family. 5/5

With the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Nintendo Wii in 2008, the game had really shone through with Sakurai's intentions. It offered many new game modes, challenges to complete, an epic story like adventure mode, and great new graphics making for some amazing new additions to the party game he had previously created. However, most of the competitive community from Melee were very disappointed with Brawl. Hit stun was extremely low, the game was slow paced and floaty, and it severely lacked character balancing and advanced techniques from Melee. The competitive community, unlike the casual community, felt very excluded with Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

This is what I found made this newest instalment, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, such a relief. It found the silver lining between both communities: It comes including a far bigger roster than ever, better graphics than ever that suit the game's cartoonish feel well, retaining most of the game modes and and challenges that existed in Brawl and more. But in addition, it includes possibly the best character balancing from any smash game yet, and a certain speed to the game that gives it a healthy balance between defensive and offensive play. The gameplay lacks some of the advanced techniques that once existed in Melee, and is a little more forgiving of mistakes and easier to control. However, the skill ceiling still remains high, with a gameplay that focuses more on mind games, patience, and knowing your particular character well, rather than having skill with a controller like Melee.

The game pleases both sides of the community by being a fun, simple fighter that is very easy to pick up, while including intricacies that allow you to take your character and gameplay further, still creating a divide between a beginner and experienced player with a need for solid fundamentals to keep up. Each stage even comes with a special flat variant known as its "Omega Form", so that you may enjoy it without its usual stage distractions if you so choose. This is something I appreciated very much as I prefer simple stages, but still want to enjoy the atmosphere of each game that the stage is from.

Lastly, what Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is probably most recognized for amongst the series is Online play against people from around the world. You may participate in 4 man free for all matches, team battles, 1v1 battles, and even online tournaments. The game also comes with the option to play "For Glory" or "For Fun" the latter of which is played the traditional way of smash bros., and the other is played on omega form stages with no items that records a player's wins and losses, once again showing that the game is a welcoming sign to both the party and fighting sides of Super Smash Bros..

I love this game and it's whole series, and I play it everyday. I give Super Smash Bros. for Wii U a 9.3/10 rating. It manages to cover every side to traditional Smash Bros. and it's communities ALMOST perfectly. Although I was shocked by the number of in-game options that were retained from previous games and even added on (considering gaming is moving towards online play) I was disappointed to see there was no story/adventure mode that once existed in Melee/Brawl. Also, although I am glad that there is better character balancing and skill potential, I do wish that some of the advanced techniques were kept, since I lean a bit more towards the competitive spectrum. Finally, although I play online everyday, it is of considerably low quality compared to other online games. Online play is still manageable, but there is often Frame lag, and consistent input lag which is TERRIBLE to have in a fighting game where every movement counts.

Super Smash Bros. is a fantastic series of games, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has done really well solving the dilemma of Nintendo not appealing to all audiences, including a competitive community that has gone largely ignored until now.
