Super Smash Bros. for 3ds REVIEW
By: Tony Zepeda, staff writer
What is Super Smash Bros.? Well, Super Smash Bros. is a fighting game series where you can play as different Nintendo characters . There also are a few third party characters thrown in there too. This series started way back in 1999 and since then, many changes were made to the series. The newest game in the series recently came out on October 3 for the 3ds. The Wii U version of the game will come out on November 21. For today, I will be reviewing the 3ds version of the game. Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3ds(yes, that’s really the title), is really fun. In this game, there are a lot of new and returning characters, like Megaman and Robin. This is also one of the first games in history to have Megaman, Sonic, Mario and Pac-Man all in one game. There are a lot of clone characters in this game, but that isn’t too much of a problem for me.
Most of the time, the controls are smooth, but sometimes the circle pad for the 3ds puts the wrong move. You could try to do an up attack, but instead do a side attack.This doesn’t happen very often for me, though. In the game, there are different modes for you to play. The different modes are, Smash, Smash Run, Classic Mode and many more. You can also play online, which is fun, but there’s a glitch that can happen where you get banned for going online for over 136 years. This glitch can happen if you get banned from online play and instead of getting banned for a couple of minutes, it glitches out and you get banned for 136 years! This glitch doesn’t seem common, though. I suggest not getting banned for a couple minutes, because the glitch could happen, or you could not play online at all, until this glitch is fixed(at least I hope it gets fixed). Another problem in the game is that when you play 4 player smash, each character becomes kind of small and kind of hard to see, it’s still not that big of a deal for me.
Overall, Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3ds is a great game. I suggest it to people who like smash or if you just like fighting games in general. If you’ve never played Smash Bros., this would a good game to start it off. I also reccomend this game to anyone who owns a 3ds, because it really is a good game, it does have minor flaws, but I still really like it.
FINAL RESULT: 9.2/10
