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.
IGN UK (Feb 04, 2010)
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.
Mag'64 (Dec 12, 2010)
"Super Smash Bros." für das Nintendo 64 ist weder schlecht gealtert, noch hat das Spiel irgendetwas von seiner Faszination oder von seinem Charme verloren. Dennoch nagt der berühmt-berüchtigte Zahn der Zeit an diesem Klassiker, denn die beiden "Smash Bros."- Sequels sind dem Serien-Erstling wahrlich in allen Aspekten haushoch überlegen. In der Tat muss man heutzutage wirklich von zwei verschiedenen Welten sprechen, entsprechend schwer fällt es, hier noch eine Empfehlung auszusprechen. Nur absolute Anhänger dieser Videospielserie und chronische Nostalgiker sollten den Download dieses Spiels näher in Betracht ziehen. Allen anderen sei an dieser Stelle geraten, noch ein oder zwei Euro draufzulegen und sich gleich einen der beiden Nachfolger, wenn nicht gar beide, zu besorgen. Dessen ungeachtet eignet sich "Super Smash Bros." jedoch weiterhin exzellent für den einen oder anderen gemütlichen Zockerabend mit Freunden. Sei es auch nur, um gemeinsam in Erinnerungen schwelgen.

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.
