Review Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)
Perhaps the greatest game of this generation? Hmm... maybe, just maybe.
Smash Bros.? What's Smash Bros.? If you are a Wii owner asking that question, you'll get many funny looks from other gamers that wonder where you have been the past ten years. Super Smash Bros. is perhaps Nintendo's most successful franchise (in terms of sales per game) in the...

What's the ultimate Super Smash Bros., bro?
The 9th March 2023 marked the 15th anniversary of Super Smash Bros. Brawl's US launch. We took some time back in January to discuss the game (specifically the Subspace Emissary single-player mode) in honour of the same milestone for the Japanese version, but we thought it high time to revisit this ranked...
About The Game
Welcome to a brawl for the ages, where anything can happen, anyone can show up and all bets are off.
- This action-packed fighting game features a ridiculous number of characters that have appeared on Nintendo platforms, from Mario™ to Link to Pikachu® ... to Solid Snake! As they square off in famous locales drawn from the rich history of Nintendo, literally anything can happen - and usually does. With limitless customizing options, items and weapons that boggle the mind and a wealth of modes, this game has truly infinite replayability.
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl features a sprawling adventure mode called "The Subspace Emissary" that's a full game in and of itself. Players jump and brawl their way through enemy-packed side-scrolling levels, meeting up with other characters, watching incredible cinematics and taking on massive bosses.
- For the first time, this celebrated series is going Wi-Fi, allowing up to four players to brawl, no matter where they may be. Specific modes will be announced in the coming months.
Game storyline: In multiplayer games, characters from all Nintendo universes meet up in Nintendo locales to duke it out. In the solo mode called "The Subspace Emissary," the world of Smash Bros. is invaded by an entity called the Ancient Minister and his army of creatures, called "The Primid." Normally, characters come alive in the world of Smash Bros. to do battle, then turn back into trophies when defeated. However, the Ancient Minister starts turning characters into trophies to harness their power, then detonates bombs that suck pieces of the world back into his realm of Subspace. Eventually, all the characters must work together to defeat the invading creatures from Subspace - this is accomplished by playing through side-scrolling levels.
How to progress through the game: For multiplayer games, players pick characters, set rules and locations for where they want to play and then duke it out. In Solo Mode, characters play through a long, side-scrolling adventure, beating up enemies along the way as they watch short cinematics starring their favorite characters.
Characters: Mario, Samus, Bowser, Donkey Kong®, Solid Snake, Meta Knight, Kirby™, Pikachu®, Zero Suit Samus, Link, Zelda™, Pit and Wario™, to name just a few. Anyone and anything from a Nintendo universe could appear in this game in one form or another.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Anything from a Nintendo game could conceivably be in this game, whether it's a musical score, an obscure item or a character that shows up to help the fighters. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is eminently customizable, so players can choose the frequency of items appearing, adjust musical scores and basically play the game however they'd like. Items range from baseball bats to proximity mines to Poké Balls to Assist Trophies, which spawn characters like Hammer Bros. and Sim City's Dr. Wright to attack others.
This game is awesome.
The only flaw is probably the online. 3 minute brawl shouldn't have been the default setting for random battles online.
3 minute i wish it's 2 mins
This is a great game! Fantastic! I love it! Especially online because if your the same kind of person like me that likes to play multiplayer games with friends, if you don't have anyone with you then you can play online! It's a MUST HAVE for Wii owners. 11/10
THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!! And it has catchy music to. Why 9/10?
I want some add on content!! I WANT TO PLAY AS THE EBA!!
I've played this game so much that the computer opponents are too easy, even at level 9. I play this with 5 lifes each player and I play as Meta Knight or Kirby or Fox McCloud or Luigi. And I usually beat my big brother, who uses usually Ike or Link or Marth. Should I start play online?
Best Fighting game ever.
SSBB is the best Wii game ever!
This is for PiribroH, but, I am exactly where you are, LV9 computers are WAY too easy, so what I do is have the LV9 computers on teams, usually 3 cpus vs. me. It's a challenge, but I usually beat them. Try it out
Best game on the wii for multiplayer!!
That is an AWSOME game!
This is my favorite of the series...thus far! I'd still like to see a DS entry.
the best Classic in the world
Simply the best Multiplayer game in the universe
@Storm_Owl - It still is. Go to: http://www.smashbros.com/en_uk/index.html
Best. Game. Ever.
That game is really a cool fighting game but the campaign is hard. They really have cool characters that I like.
I've played almost 600 hours...& IT STILL AIN'T ENOUGH! W00T! lol I love this game, even though my friends who have played tons less beat me most of the time...well, used 2 beat me - they "retired"...lame!
10:10 one of the best games for wii one of the best games of all time
I love this game!!!!My favourite character is zero suit samus.
when i played SSB (which i bought on N64 cuz i saw kirby was in it) i was best at kirby, but then a better game of the series came named SSBM, much more possibilities and way more advanced, and still was best at kirby
now that the best game of the series (IMO) came to the wii, i bought it and still am best at kirby
this game has so many possibilities, and is even bigger than SSBM
to me, everything is better than in SSB or SSBM
the only 3 things i dont like as much are online game, as you have lag alot, even with 2 people playing who have good internet connection
then you cant fight against CPU with 2 players online, and cant play custom stages online
and the stage builder is a bit too limited, bit more pieces in a stage would be better, and i know it, as i have "over 500!!" custom stages
other than that its the best wii game for me
i also love the story mode (SSE), which i completed for 100% not very long ago
as for the ratings i have: 10/10
What an absolutely amazing game this is.
Really amazing game fighting game play on Wi-fi match play as mario bowser pickachu ike pit kirby wario donkey kong and lots more unlockable charecters luigi snake sonic donkey kong ??? home run contest. Target smash and 10 man brawl..... can play solo or brawl
THE best game in the history of Earth
This game is epic 10/10
I think the should of let u play as ur mii,tails and other sonic characters
i love this game! but i hate sonic!!!! wolf is awsome!!!!!!!! thats why i have my username as wolfen532. ill rate it 10 out of 10 and some credit to wolf!
Though it's a bit to easy.
I played as Samus (I'm really good with her) and beat a level nine with a smash ball.
best game ever hands down
anybody want to battle
This is the BEST game of all time!!! They should make a Video Game Hall of Fame just so they can put this game in it. Super good graphics too.
32 out of 10 for me
It could have used more characters, and they should have kept all the old stages. But that shouldn't have lowered it to a 9/10.
Loved it. It had creative gameplay for like 32 different characters and the final-smash for each character was so epic! Even the unlockables were neat, from trophies to classic game demos. Me and my bro played it countless times (Until we were forced to sell it...). I played Sonic often back then, but now Metroid is my favorite franchise. Samus's final smash was AWESOME, you know the large energy beam she shot across the the stage that rips off the Varia Suit? That is called the the Zero Laser. I can't wait for the next game on Wii U! The story was kinda awkward when it came to teaming up... (Samus and Pikachu,Link and Yoshi,Solid Snake and Lucario, Mario PIt, really?) The game is one the best on the Wii! 9.5/10.
I love this series! when ssb came to n64 i bought and played it my characters that i used: Link, Pikachu, Kirby and Ness. then ssbm came out to the gamecube and fond out they added more characters to the series such as Princess Peach, Zelda/Sheik, Falco, Mewtwo, Marth, Roy and Pichu I was stoked, instead of using Link, Pikachu, Kirby, Ness. I dropped my main for and used Princess Peach and dominated with her. Then Brawl came out, i own and play it non stop love the game but dissaponted that they took out Mewtwo, Roy, Young Link, Dr. Mario and Pichu. But i like that they added and lot more characters i played as them all to see what they are like and i like them all except for R.O.B and Olimar to me they are the worst two fighters. I still dominate with Peach. now theres talk of a new edition for the 3ds and wiiu. Im excited for this and i want more characters and bring back everyone including the ones they put in melee and removed for brawl. if they remove any one it should be R.O.B and Olimar. Characters i would love to see in the new one are these:
Amy Rose from Sonic( she would make an awesome addition and she could use her hammer like how kirby uses his.)
Princess Daisy( Daisy needs her own character i dont like the whole change peach's color to be daisy)
Isaac, Felix or Jenna from Golden Sun
Krystal from Star Fox series
Toad&Toadette paired to fight like the Ice Climbers or have the switch like Zelda and Sheik
Shadow the hedgehog
Silver( would be awesome with his telekinetic powers)
Micaiah or Sothe from Fire Emblem
Dawn from pokemon diamond and pearl( pokemon using Pachirisu, Piplup, Buneary)
Paula ( earthbound, for another playable female character)
Waddle Dee to add someone else to the kirby series
This is truly.....TRULY.....the greatest game in the history of the entire world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am I the only one who gets tired of Melee fanboys saying this game sucks? This is my favorite game of all time!
This game was okay, but lets not forget, gay tripping is gay.
I would've given this game a perfect 10 if I hadn't played Smash 3DS yet. It sadly just can't live up to that. I do still really love this game though. Ah, whatever, it's my favourite Wii game ever, I'm giving it a 10 as well. I do believe it deserves it, even if Smash Bros 4 is so obviously better.
Does anyone still play Brawl? :')
@Geviper Oh? On god?
I personally think this one is the best in the frenchise. I absolutely adore it and still haven't gotten tired. The adventure mode being typically plot-driven was a great idea. The soundtrack is also one of the best I've ever heard. So many engaging tracks.
An absolutely cherished installment to the Smash Series, and playing this as a kid when unlocking Sonic the freaking Hedgehog?? How could I not play and love this game?
While I'm sure it has its ups and downs. Everything from the new Smash Roster, Building your own Stages, Story Mode, Smash Challenges, etc. Just make the game so darn good.
