When Super Smash Bros. was released I instantly became a fan as it had everything that a gamer expects from a particular game. The game left me awestruck for a really long time and I don’t remember any other game that has been able to do that for such an extensive period. Then there were rumors about a possible sequel to the super hit game and I was not happy as I knew that no successor has ever been able to pull off what the original game does. But, I was wrong. Super Smash Bros. Melee is a great game that has been able to impress me much more than its predecessor. There are hardly any games that have been able to deliver the way their predecessors have. But, Super Smash Bros. Melee is definitely an exception.
Super Smash Bros. Melee is a great game that borrows exactly everything in terms of gameplay from Super Smash Bros. along with some really great exceptions to its graphics and sound and this is actually a good thing.

It was loved by all and is still loved by many till date (including me) and it delivered perfectly on all accounts. There was hardly anything that one could ask for. Until, Super Smash Bros. Melee came in. This game came in with some cool sound and visual effects added to it that instantly put the game to a whole another level. it is a great game that is highly playable and offers some really good gaming pace that matches exactly the one that was offered with its predecessor. There is a lot to love about the game and hardly a few things that you wouldn’t like.

Nintendo has pulled off a great job with this successor of the original game. The game features characters from different video games such as Mario, Pokemon, The Legend of Zelda and Star Fox. The game has a really simple yet intriguing gameplay that is on many accounts similar to Super Smash Bros. The game offers both single player as well as multiplayer options. The single player mode includes side scrolling fighting challenges where the player gets to choose from a wide variety. The single player mode includes several applicable modes that are the Classic Mode, Home Run Contest, Target Test, Adventure Mode, All Star Mode and the Board of Platforms. All these modes have a distinct gameplay and offer a really entertaining time for the players. The multiplayer mode on the other hand includes four numbers of players either fighting against computer controlled enemies or each other. This can be done while being in a free for all scenario or by divided into teams.
Multiplayer mode includes several modes such as the popular Time Mode, Stock Mode and Coin Mode. The players can win trophies throughout the game and these trophies are usually action figures of characters that are playable, accessories and items related to the characters as well as the series and characters that cannot be played in the game otherwise. One of the most enticing features of the Super Smash Bros. Melee like most popular games is the characters available for the players to choose from. The game has around twenty six characters, all belonging to a famous Nintendo franchise such as Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, Bayonetta, Donkey Kong and Super Mario. The gameplay is different than other fighting games as there is no killing the opposing character, rather the player has to remove the opposing character from the stage. The controls are also quite simple with not many technicalities or complexities and the players can easily play the game.
The game is simply outstanding. The remarkable gameplay, a great theme, superb graphics and sound, large list of characters to choose from and a tried and tested formula from its predecessor make Super Smash Bros. a must have for every game and is something almost everyone would like. There is nothing that you won’t like about the game. The game is so entertaining that it deserves to be on the top of the list as the best game ever developed if there is any such list of course. The moment you start playing Super Smash Bros. Melee, you will not let go of the console. You will stick to the screen till your eyes pop out. The game is intriguing and enjoyable on every end.
Nintendo’s efforts of developing a remarkable game that allows several players to play at once have definitely paid off with this game. It will not only attract the die-hard Nintendo fan but will also lure in a large number of other people who wish to play a multiplayer game that entertains them to the core. It is definitely an exotic entertainer that will leave you in an elevated state of mind. Even if you play the game for several hours at a stretch, you will still feel attracted to it and realize how addictive it is. It is probably one of the most entertaining and the most fun games to ever come out of the Nintendo’s stable or from any other publisher as it offers a lot that one can do eating up several hours at a stretch.
