    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.

    The limit of this game model has reached the top, turning slightly towards the RPG, providing options for everyone to play, and although it does not offer an adventure mode with a complex story, it does allow us to enter its universe.

    The World of Light campaign is the absolute icing on the cake, offering up tens of hours of fun and some genuine surprises. The only thing really holding Ultimate back from perfection is its online play, both because of its connectivity hiccups and because of some odd design choices.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is bigger and, for the most part, better than ever. It gives to the audience one of the best experiences ever for single player in a fighting game, but makes a few bad choices for the Online Mode that steals the freedom of choice from the players.
  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.

    The best smash bros game so far, combines everything for casual and competitive game. Without a doubt this is the best work of Sakurai.

    First of all, i don't like genre like fighting game where we have to fight each other. Second, type of fighting game always limit the floor.First of all, i don't like genre like fighting game where we have to fight each other. Second, type of fighting game always limit the floor. That is my opinion

    - But these opinions are not for SSBU (also this is my first time playing this series). Sakurai did very good at this type of genre since this series start. not fighting till out of Hp, but fighting till hitting opponent out of the screen, which is very differently. Also adventure mode help player who does not use internet to play this game fighting against better CPU (when you want to get a 4 star spirit). Boss fight is my favorite of all. The reason why I enjoy playing this game is:
    - Always have a chance to win opponent
    - Lots of character with unique skills + our own character
    - Easy to understand but hard to competently
    - Different bosses make this game more unique and chance to control Master Hand
    - Multiple player in a console
    - Adventure mode
    Negative: about assist trophy, this is what i hate the most, if they could only use skill rather join the battle.
    I think this game deserve 9.5. I've spend 20 hours into this game. Anyway, it's way better than Pokemon Let's go.

    P/s: my first time writing review (and my English may not be good) thanks for reading
