| -on the characters in the game: I am glad to see some of these characters making a comeback here! I particularly enjoyed playing Link myself, and seeing Samus and starfox's main character as well.|
-thoughts on the gameplay: I believe gameplay was quite entertaining, at least for a while. The controls of the game were intuitive and I had no real trouble learning them. The arenas entertained me moderately well, and I had no problem progressing through battles between my friends and I in each.
-on how the game keeps the player entertained: This game does not need to worry about providing for entertainment for its players through challenge because the opposing player in the game IS the challenge, and thus presents the best form of challenge possible. Since I played exclusively against two friends, game-created challenge wasn't really a factor.
-on the social aspect of the game: The social aspect of the game was great! As I was playing and having my doorway open, people would come by and ask to play later that day! The game is well known among many and thus has a fairly large following who really enjoy playing it, sometimes all too much. For this reason, the gameplay socially ranks with a 10/10 rating.
-on relation to my game project: I don't really think this game will relate in any way to my game project. I'm going to concentrate on a one player game, and since I played as two player, I did not really gain any insight into my future-creation.
All in all, I would rate this game with a 8.5/10. I think it was great overall, but could have been better and could have offered more variety in moves available to the players, perhaps in a way that didn't just lend itself so strongly to rapid button mashing, sans-rest.

| Well, the iconic game that I find all my friends to be oddly obsessed with playing has finally had the chance to be reviewed by me! After a bit of fooling around with practice rounds, I launch in to mortal combat with a friend of mine, and we both learn the characters we have decide to play. She as princess peach(*), and I as Link from Zelda, Ocarina of time--which I reviewed last week.|
After a number of rounds, my initial opinion of the game appears to be positive. I have enjoyed the matches thus far, and have only now started to play around with the settings for the game itself.
Gameplay thus far seems pretty intuitive, but I may phone in assistance from a friend who claims to be an expert on this game! We will see how thigns progress and have gone along after another 45 minutes of gameplay has elapsed.
EDIT: (*) She did NOT play as princess peach! I had actually played the game a while ago, and had jotted down notes on my opinion for the game, as well as obersvations. Later, I played Smash on a friend's gamecube--I'm afraid I mis-remembered which character she was able to play, and she is unavailable for comment on it at this time.
