    This truly is the ultimate fighting game, megalomaniac in scope. A huge story campaign together with cooperative and competitive multiplayer combine to form an unbelievable experience that will delight even those unfamiliar with the fighting game genre.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate delivers the fight of a lifetime and an unfaltering experience that is ‘ultimate’ in every way imaginable. It really is something quite special, a celebration that’s rich in gaming history and, polished to perfection, the next must-have game on Nintendo Switch that you won’t want to miss.

    After the short reign of Super Mario Party, Super Smash Bros Ultimate has now become the de-facto game of choice to play at the office as well as the home. It encapsulates the timeless elements of the long running series and sprinkles a wealth of content unmatched by its contemporary rivals. Simply put, it’s couch gaming bliss.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the best games of the year, a digital paradise for the fans of the franchise.

    It takes more than a little bit of programming genius to allow a game as simple and accessible as this to still keep the door open for in-depth competitive play.

    I'll be really disappointed if Nintendo really is shifting emphasis to turn Smash Bros. into a more "serious" fighting game. It says a lot about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that the biggest criticism that I have with it is that the intent of this game seems at odds compared with the intent of Smash Bros. entries in the past. This won't work nearly as well as a party game as some in the Smash Bros. series have in the past, but nonetheless this is a genuinely impressive fighting game with a nearly overwhelming amount of content that's going to make the more serious Smash Bros. fans very, very happy.

    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.

    Amazing game! Although world of light isn't as good as subspace, it's better than melee's adventure mode. Nerfs and buffs to good and badAmazing game! Although world of light isn't as good as subspace, it's better than melee's adventure mode. Nerfs and buffs to good and bad characters are always welcome. A 9.7/10 in my opinion. Expand

    El Crossover más grande de los Videojuegos... Una reunión extraordinaria de personajes de Nintendo, me encantaron los personajes veteranos, los que hicieron su debut en esta entrega y los personajes invitados... Jugabilidad divertida y refinada insignia de la saga... Ampliamente recomendable para las reuniones, con muchas horas de diversión y toneladas de extras por descubrir...

    Título imprescindible para todos los poseedores de una Nintendo Switch y los amantes de la historia de los Videojuegos en general...

    Han hecho un juego perfecto prácticamente, se nota que el combate es más divertdio que en otras entregas, hay más personajes, aunque no son 74Han hecho un juego perfecto prácticamente, se nota que el combate es más divertdio que en otras entregas, hay más personajes, aunque no son 74 ya que muchos son clones, pero de todas formas son muchísimos. El online de momento no va bien, no sé si es mi wifi pero le ha pasado a más gente, tiene un 9 porque deseaba un modo historia como el Emisario Subespacial
    pero con la interacción de 74 personajes entre sí, sería un sueño. En realidad es lo que más me gustó del Brawl, por lo demás es completísimo

    It's fluid and full of details. It has some little problems that the dev team have been patching constantly, with detailed notes

    This needs Waluigi rn, he doesn't get a lot of attention from Nintendo but from fans. Waluigi must be in it or maybe deltarune.
