When everyone's favourite plumber isn't busy rescuing princesses or running around inside pipes (it's a novel way of unblocking them to be sure but every man has his methods) he likes nothing more than beating down on a Pokémon or three. The much loved Super Smash Bros. series returned last year on the Wii and it's just as much fun as ever.
EBuyer are selling it for just £10 at the moment. According to a price check this saves you almost £5 from the next best price - £14.95 at Zavvi.
This, the third instalment of the Super Smash Bros series, follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, offering a unique fighter experience. You take your pick from a nicely substantial list of Nintendo heroes, past and present, and battle to knock your opponents off the screen of a succession of stages based on classic Nintendo games. Instead of a health bar that goes down as you receive damage, you instead have a meter that increases and the higher it goes, the further you will fly when smacked skywards.
It's a simple idea but one that is conducive to fantastic fun. Combat is fast paced, frantic and frenetic and geared towards multiplayer (but almost as fun when played as a singleton). There is a whole host of modes to work your way through, both alone and with friends, each offering plenty of enjoyment. But the most fun comes from unveiling the myriad of unlockable players and guest experiences to get your Nintendo loving heart a-fluttering.
The graphics are great, the music creative and perfectly suited, the controls work perfectly and playing online tends to work without any lag. You can create your own customised levels but it will be a long time before you get bored of the lovely environments already on offer.
Super Smash Bros. has always felt like a loving gift from Nintendo to its loyal fans and that has never been more true than with Brawl. So, if you are a Nintendo fan then this is one treat that you cannot afford to miss.
