More characters, more levels, and a lot better graphics than the prequel...

The Good

The GameCube has proven to be one of the best consoles in the world graphically, and Nintendo has developed more than enough excellent games to make it sell like a huge sized burger! SSB:M is actually one of the best games I've ever played, you have characters ranging from Pikachu to Mario, from Donkey Kong to Link. Of course the *classic* mode might prove a bit too tough at the end when you reach "the hand" which is quite a pain to defeat. But the *adventure* mode is just too good to believe, you go through levels ranging from The Mushroom World, playing a Mario type game, to a Pokemon world! This game is great, and Nintendo seems to never stop making the best games.

The Bad

Well, this game is actually spick & span with absolutely no flaws whatsoever! Except the difficulty in *classic* mode that I already mentioned.

The Bottom Line

Nintendo has proven over the ages to be my favorite game developer, and they surprised again with this game, I wonder, will Nintendo actually make a bad game?
