The second game session was much like the first. Very exciting game play, great social aspects, and great action.
For this session, I focused on using characters that I'm not too familiar with. I found that this didn't make the game play any more difficult really. The thing with characters is that using certain moves makes the game play more fun, and there's really no difficulty in learning new characters.
The game is very well designed for varied yet non stop fun. Yet there are a few complaints I have with the design. The camera in the game zooms in and out to make all of the players visible. The problem is that when playing on a small screen, when the players spread out, it makes things really hard to see.
As I said before, the characters are very easy to use, and I think this is one of the greatest design pluses. Anyone can play this game and find it fun. The downside is that eventually this game can get tiring to play, but I think that would take many hours to happen. I like how the worlds are against you as well, because it adds an extra challenge to the game that's not seen in all fighting games.

Super Smash Brothers puts a lot of the Mario characters together to dual it out with various items and weapons. Each character has a basic move and a special move, along with the ability to grab and jumps. These fights take place on different worlds, each one related to one of the characters. The world can also be your enemy, as dangers such as lava or wind can throw you off guard or lead to your doom.
Super Smash Brothers is a very excellent multiplayer game, even if you are playing against a computer. Each character makes certain noises when performing their moves, and these can piss you off as they are being played against you. I noticed that as I played the game, a lot of it is based on sound. For example, when a player acquires the hammer, music plays while it is active. You don't actually have to see the hammer to know that all hell is about to break loose.
This game is very fun and exciting to play. It leaves you up on your toes, because the game is designed so that eventually, every player must die. Also, the game play can also be exciting for people in the room who aren't playing. As the game nears the end, things get very hectic. The room reactions with the game play along with the game play itself make it very fun.
