Bringing together the titans of video game history for the first time, HAL & N64 innovated the fighting genre with a groundbreaking dream multiplayer experience brawler – albeit with a comparatively-light roster and basic single-player, one that comes to life with friends and family. 8.7/10.
Pros: LEGENDARY idea of bringing the titans of video game history together from Mario to Pikachu to Link to Kirby for a rock-em-sock-em that remains to this day in 2018 one of the best games to play with friends. EVER., contribution to video game history starting an entire new sub-genre of fighting games called brawlers, phenomenal map designs ranging from the heights of Saffron City to the Donkey Kong kingdom, phenomenal soundtrack featuring the most iconic musical themes from each game and overall construction that the all-time great Melee just took and modernized to a more powerful and more beautiful system in the Gamecube but is really the same game just expanded, genre-busting and one-of-a kind, sheer impact inspiring so many fighting games after it, funniness originally being a crossover project that was supposed to be a small nod to video game fans that turned into one of the most famous and best-selling game series ever, even by nintendo’s all-time great individual rosters/series, one of the most fun multiplayers ever
Cons: Graphics could be better, few characters, just dwarfed in comparison to how legendary Super Smash Bros Melee for Gamecube is – better in every aspect, controls laggy at times – can be frustrating in a game of this type of precision, subpar one player mode featuring the same foe order every. single. time., textures can be meh at times
