    Perfecting the mechanics the franchise established way back in 1999, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a crazy, chaotic joy. With a gargantuan roster of fighters, an amazing adventure mode and more unlockables than would ever have seemed possible, this is a game that packs one heck of a punch.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate manages to meet every single expectation that was placed upon it. The addition of the marvelous adventure mode, the immense amount of playable characters as well as spirits and to top all of that, magnificent visuals, audio and gameplay. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is not only one of the best games to be found on Nintendo Switch, but it is also one of the greatest games ever made.

    This is the ultimate Super Smash Bros. With an abundance of fighters, stages and modes there is always fun in fighting friends. Even when you're playing by yourself thanks to Classic Mode and World of Light if you play the second one in bite-sized chunks.

    For the first time, we could almost say that the Nintendo brawler has reached the saturation point, beyond which it is really difficult to think about what future episodes might hold.

    The online features drag the experience down a bit. If you’re someone hoping for a good online multiplayer experience with Ultimate, you’ll be disappointed. But if you’re looking for a fun fighting games to play with friends on a couch, nothing serves you better than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels like a mic drop for the series. It packs in almost every conceivable character and stage, plus a sizable single-player mode. Spirits don't quite land, but the battles feel better than ever. It feels like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be a Switch party staple for a long time to come.
  7. 70
    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is equal parts greatness and lacking. The sheer wealth of content and great gameplay is commended but there are big holes in what could be a great game.

An absolutely delightful experience from start to non-existent finish.Chock-full of content, with a whole heap of fan-service. The one thing that keeps it from being perfect is the online lankiness and semi-repetitiveness of the story. The online could use some work, but every single other part of this game is meticulously crafted for the player's enjoyment. A love letter to Nintendo's legacy and a large part of gaming itself, this is an absolute must-buy for switch owners. Expand
