Product Description

Product Description

Four-player action fighter, starring 12 Nintendo mascots, including Mario, Luigi, Fox, Link, Samus, Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Captain Falcon. All the action takes place on one screen, from a zoomed out third-person perspective more reminiscent of old-school platformers than traditional fighting games. The premise is as simple as the controls. Beat up you opponents and knock them off the fighting platform to score a point. The more damage your opponents sustain, the farther you can throw them. Apart from the quick, but explosive mayhem that ensues when more than one player has at it, the game manages to bring back many fond gaming memories by bombarding players with familiar items, power-ups and many classic tunes.

All of your favorite Nintendo characters have come together to answer the question: who is king of the Nintendo hill? The format can aptly be described as Super Mario Kart meets Mortal Kombat, which makes for an odd, yet addictive game. The object is to throw, punch, smash, or blast your opponents off the edge of the beautifully rendered, themed arenas. Numerous power-ups, weapons, and surprises help or hinder the melee. Your eventual goal is to fight your way through to a bizarre final boss character. Victory in this battle rewards you with another character to play, such as the scene-stealing Pokémon, Jigglypuff.

From Star Fox's laser pistol to Link's hook shot, each character's trademark special abilities are utilized to knock one another off the screen. The game does a great job balancing the characters' widely differing powers so that no one character has an insurmountable advantage. The sound and animations are also dead-on: Donkey Kong is a huge, cartoonish ape, while Link is much more detailed and realistic. And Pikachu's famous thunder shock attack is accompanied by a fearsome yell of "PIKA!"

Unlike most fighting games, Super Smash Bros. allows you to team up with a computer partner and take on other teams in both single and multiplayer modes. But the most fun is had when four human players play in a battle royale. The game quickly becomes a scene of incredibly fun chaos: picture Mario beating up on Luigi, while Donkey Kong is chased by a scampering, sledgehammer-wielding Pikachu. It's the perfect party game. --Hugh Arnold

5.0 out of 5 stars Predudice is not necessary December 12, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nintendo -cute,fluffy and twee. Unfortunatley alot of people associate those words with Nintendo and naturally assume that it is for a much younger audience. When in fact they make incredibly deep and enjoyable games which are ageless.Super Smash Bros. has been dubbed a cartoon beat 'em up, but after playing it I wouldn't say it was that, it is much more enjoyable than your Mortal Kombats or even your Tekkens- because it is very innovative and is very satisfying despite lack ofgore.Another reason that it rises above the rest is because it is still enjoyable on one player and the possibility of a mixture of human and computer players and power ups means that there is alot of variety. The multiplayer is UNBELIEVABLE! Four player is one of its' biggest strengths. Basically if you have a Nintendo 64, buy this, This is excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game for the 64 July 15, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game. It's unique and if I could, I'd give it a sixth star. It's a fighting game that features characters from different Nintendo games from past to present. They include....Link (from the Zelda Series), Kirby (from Kirby's Dreamland), Samus (from Metroid and Super Metroid), Mario (from all the Mario games), Yoshi (from Yoshi's Story), Fox McCloud (from Starfox and Starfox 64), Donkey Kong, (from the Donkey Kong Country series), Pikachu, (from the Pokemon games), and four other "sercret" characters that can be "unlocked" from the game by completing certain Single player tasks. One of the best things about this game is that each characters' fighting moves and techniques is somewhat based on Items or abilities that the characters had in previous games. For example, Link has his hookshot, boomerang, bobms, and of course, his sword; and Samus has her charge shot.
In the One-player mode in this game, You can choose your character, computer skill level, and your life stock to make the series of fights as challenging as you want. I'll be honest with you.....don't buy this game for just its one player mode. It's best feature is its multi-player mode.
This is probably one of (if not) the best multi-player games for the N64! Multi-player mode puts together strategy, skill, and common sense all at once. It's multi-player mode NEVER seems to get old, as I have enjoyed it for well over a year now, and I'm still trying to master each character! In this aspect, it's different from other fighting games for the 64.
This is in my opinion, the best fighting game for the 64, period. I urge you to buy it, as your money will not go to waste. You'll be glad you bought it. I know I was, or I wouldn't be spending my time writing this, correct?

By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd say Super Smash Brothers is a good choice of a video game because: A. It's Fun; B. It's Non-Violent; C. It's Funny; D. It's a fighting game; E. It's 4 player; F. You can team up with a human or computer; G. It tells data about the characters; H. It's got Pokemon; I. It has star fox, Link and Samus; J. It has the top 12 Nintendo Characters; The parents are in luck too, the usaul fighting games are very violent and Super Smash Brothers isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars this game rocks! December 12, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game rocks because each character has their own special moves. Also,there's more than beating the game,such as getting special characters and a secret place to battle. You can be 8 different characters. Those characters are: Mario, Yoshi, Kirby, Pikachu, Samus, Donkey Kong, Star Fox, and Link.The secret characters are: Ness, Luigi, Captain Falcon, and Jigglypuff. I hope this reveiw helped you.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It didn't take Nintendo long before they figured out that if they took all their cool characters and crammed them into a fighter with great graphics and sound that the end result would be an awesome game. The whole gang is here, including the Mario Bros., Pikachu, Link, DK, Kirby, Fox, and Yoshi. Up to four players can pit themselves against each other in eight different fighting arenas. The one player mode is equally entertaining, and the secrets to be unlocked will keep you playing for hours.
GRAPHICS: Smash Bros. sports a great look with bright colors, eye popping effects, and detailed characters and backgrounds. Occasionally during the multiplayer, however, there is some slowdown.
CONTROL: The controls are extremely simple and easy to master. But a lot of the moves strongly rely on the analog joystick for execution, which can be frustrating in the heat of battle.
SOUND: Smash Bros.'s sounds will be music to your ears. The theme music which accompanies each stage flows nicely with the various character voices. The only cons are the annoying cries of Pikachu, which may appeal to Pokemon fanatics.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the N64�s great entertainments! November 26, 2001
When a list of the best games ever made for Nintendo 64 is drawn up, Super Smash Bros. is bound to rank high. With enormous replay value, this is also one of the most entertaining video games ever made.
SSB allows you to select eight different Nintendo characters (Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Yoshi, Fox, Kirby and Pikachu) on eight different battle arenas. You can turn on or off weapons and select time limits or the number of lives each person has. This results in an infinite amount of combat scenarios. In addition, there are four hidden characters and one hidden arena, all of which can be earned on the one-player mode, which sadly lacks the replay value and excitement of multi-player. But what if you don't have friends to beat up? Play against computer controlled characters. You can select the different CPU opponents and the experience level of each, from 1 to 9.
This game is different from a lot of more serious fighting games, in that it goes less for a realistic, bloody type of fighting than it does for fantasy. The weapons do hurt your opponents, but the result isn't violent. Rather, it is often funny. The levels also come with happy sort of music. It is truly a good, clean (almost) fight.
With the exception of the rather simple one player mode, the fact that you need friends to enjoy this game the most and that the CPU is way too easy, Super Smash Bros. is simply perfect and fun to play. If you have played it, you will agree. If you haven't, what is wrong with you?
