| Super Smash Brothers is a fighting style game in which you can play as some of your favorite video game characters. The game is played with 2-4 player with the ability to have computer players. Each player picks a character from the limited character pool all having unique abilities. After everyone has chosen their characters, players will select a stage to fight on. These stages range from a flat stage floating in space to a giant hyrule temple.|
First Session: We played with four people in a free-for-all. We played with lives, so once you ran out you were done. Everyone play has quite a bit of experience in Super Smash Brothers, so the game was not terribly one sided. Because of this experience, we played with 5 lives, a low amount of items, and on the stage Sector-Z. Sector-Z is a space ship of sorts with varying elevations. I played as Samus who has a charged shot and decent melee abilities. The game came down to a 1v1. I lost due to a failed block. This brings up an issue with playing with heavily used controllers and the fact that they sometimes break.
Second Session: We played again right after the end of the first game. This time I played Donkey Kong who is strictly melee but can charge up his punch to do a good bit of damage. This game did not go as well for me as I was the second person to lose all of their lives.
Overall Super Smash Brothers is a very fun game that can be played quickly and will almost always have a different outcome. Some characters are better than others and can bring up some issues if someone just plays those characters.
