Plot. Since this is the first game, and has no adventure mode, there is no plot outline. But, the twelve fighters battle against an evil antagonist known as Master Hand.
Gameplay. The game is played up to four players, and they can choose twelve characters from Nintendo such as: Mario, DK, Link, Samus, Fox, Pikachu, and so on. Players can also wield various items to attack their opponents. They can even throw a PokeBall where any type of Pokemon comes out, but in rare occasions, Clefairy and Mew come out. You can play against three of your friends or family members, enjoying long hours of fun and excitement. In Versus Mode, you can play against your friends, or fight in teams. When time runs out, and neither of your opponents have been defeated once, or are tied, players get to play in Sudden Death with critical percentage of HP.
Design. The graphics are 64-bits with 3D action and effects. However, the characters are rendered in 3D polygons, because on that time, graphics were not as advanced as they are today, where they look more realistic.
Music. Hirokazu Ando is the composer of the first game, and the theme of the game is very memorable. The themes of classic games such as: Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, and so on are enhanced, and they sound very catchy.
Memories. When I was 12 years old, I remember when I first laid eyes on the commercial, it was so funny that I always laughed everytime I saw it. When I turned 13, I went on vacation to New York when I was living in the Dominican Republic at that time. I remember playing this game with my cousins and my friends. Before playing this game, we were still Goldeneye freaks. So many good memories on those days, but unfortunately, what kids play these days are only war games like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Counterstrike, and so on.
Commercial. You can view the commercial in this clip. Oh the memories.
Good Aspects. My favorite characters to play with are Fox, Samus, and Captain Falcon. I always enjoyed playing with those three characters. Ness was ok too. I like Luigi's jump attack, because it's something out of Ken's Dragon Punch in Street Fighter. Fox is like the game's version of Guile in my opinion. The combos defined most of the fun moments during battle against the CPU or my friends as well.
Overall. Super Smash Bros, is a classic that lives on in the hearts of many old generation gamers like myself, and those who play Brawl, they will enjoy the classic as much as they enjoy Melee and Brawl as well. You can download it on the Wii Shop Channel for 1,000 Wii Points. The replay value is moderately high, and my final score is a 9 out of 10.
