By all means download it if you harbour fond memories of the original game, but don't come crying to Retro Gamer if you find yourselves completely bored of it a little sooner than you expected.
But anytime that relative lack of depth starts creeping back up to try to steal away your joy, the core game itself will still be there -- with perfectly intact sense of fun, even after over 10 years. Melee might have added tons more depth and Brawl might have pushed the envelope even further, but the sequels' successes don't take away from the good time still to be had with the series' starter. Fun is what wins the fight here for the first Super Smash Bros. in its Virtual Console re-release, and that's always the most important factor.
These gripes are of less consequence when you're pummelling a friend such as Donkey Kong, but there's always that nagging suspicion that you'd be having more fun with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So there's undoubtedly fun to be had here, but how much depends largely on how nostalgic you are.
