      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great fighting game!

      Just Great! Almost all main characters from Nintendo in a Super Battle Game!
      This is Super Smash Bros.!

      *Storyline
      The game doesn't have a "storyline", but has some explanation:
      A "misterious hand" make some toy dolls to have life (don't ask me how, I don't have any idea... and I think Nintendo doesn't either!), and, with no proposit or apparent reason, mekes them to start fighting in a championship, in order to the champion fight it.

      *Characters
      The Characters are Mario(do I need to say from wich game?), Fox McCloud(From Star Fox series), Samus Aran(From Metroid), Kirby(From Kirby), Ness(This one I don't know xD), Cpt. Falcon(F-Zero), Pikachu(...)
      Jigglypuff(You must know, but if you don't, it's from Pokémon), Luigi(...²), Yoshi(...³), Link(From the Zelda series... and no, that greendressed guy isn't Zelda! That's LINK!) and D.K.(Donkey Kong).

      *Gameplay
      Different of any fighting game, in SSB, when a player is hit, instead of decreasing health, it increases the player's %, wich means the player's weight: If it's large, the weight is small, and vice-versa.
      There are also pickups, such as pokéballs, swords, laser pistols, fireflowers, etc.

      *Soundtrack
      The soundtrack is basically the origin game's main themes.

      *Graphics
      The graphics are 3D, altrough the perspective is side-scrollig, just like on common fighting games.

      Super Smash Bros. For N64

      *A review of Super Smash Bros. for N64.*

      An original fighting game where famous Nintendo and Hal Laboratory characters do battle! Mix it with Mario, fight as Fox, or pick Pikachu - but don't lose it with Luigi!

      When a character takes damage, instead of having a health bar decrease as in traditional fighting games, a percentage stat - which indicates the likeliness of being knocked out of the stage - increases. The game has weapon-use thrown in for good measure, and the fighting system allows for truly unique levels.

      The character models are not that high in polygon count so they are fairly angular and the camera can be from afar to keep the characters in view. Sound effects are adequate, but it's nice to do battle along to recognisable Nintendo game themes. Character movements are controlled with the analog stick, and this works well.

      Initially there are eight characters to choose from, and there are a handful to unlock via single player to take that number into double figures. Whilst there isn't much for the single player, there is a cool n64highscores site out there for competitive players to make the most out of the single player modes.

      In VS Mode, the computer-controlled opponents are decent at close-quarters combat but always seek (yet never capitilise) on the weapons - this can be taken advantage of. Four can be fighting at the same time, with computer opponents to make up the numbers - multi-player is where Super Smash Bros. comes into it's own. It was a reason why I wanted a Nintendo 64 so bad many summers ago.

      I admit that I am not much of a fighting game fan but I like playing this title. The game is fairly simple to play with a basic paper-rock-scissors mechanism in place, but having four characters doing battle works wonders.

      • "lack of fighting game fundamentals"

      Ah, Super Smash Brothers. Quite possibly one of the most overrated games I've ever come across. Sure it was fun for a couple days, but when you start owning every single challenge the game has it gets old. Behind all that, no depth for the hardcore gamer. Gamers all over the world were madly in love with this game, but fail to realize how much this game could have been improved. And now I hear people saying "I hate fighting games, but I like SSB"? You people! SSB is not a fighting game! Check out Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter if you want a real fighter. If some no-name developer made a game like this, exactly the same gameplay, but with different characters, I guarantee to you this game would not have 25% the success it has had. Look at Sega's Powerstone. In every sense of the word, the same thing as SSB but maybe 3 times better. Yet, how has SSB oversold it by oh I don't know, 20 million copies? THERE ARE SOME VERY BIASED NINTEDO FANBOYS OUT THERE. As much as I love Nintendo, I can say this game is NOT a masterpiece, it is NOT a game worth over 50 hours of gameplay, and it certainly does NOT do Nintendo's mascots any justice. Now I'm not saying this is a bad game, but it certainly isn't good either. It just could have been so much better. Now for the clueless on the game. Basically hell freezes over and Nintendo feels the need to make a game with all their mascots in battle with each other because some hand brought them to life. Okay....anyway, the game features 12 of Nintendo's biggest characters. Each of them is equipped with three of their special moves and all of their basic moves, this game is very easy to pick up and easier to learn that other fighting games because every character has the same button combination for special attacks. How you use them is a different story. It's a pretty freely loosed action/fighting game where you jump around the stage attacking your opp
      onents, grabbing items, getting sucked into a tornado or whatnot. The multiplayer mode is appealing because you can show off your skills with other friends in a battle. The fights are also very untraditional to fighting games because you don't lose life, you basically gain damage and then when you are high on damaage opponents can knock you out of the stage. Not a bad idea I admit. What made me buy this game? The thing that made every Nintendo fan buy it, seeing Mario, Link, Kirby, and the whole family in the same game. Even if I knew this game was going to be just average, I still would have gotten it. Graphics: Fair. However, while Nintendo was putting out gorgeous games like Zelda: Majora's Mask it's a bit dissapointing, even if they were going for the 2-D look. Ah well. Gameplay: Ever since this game came out I've been brainstorming ideas to make this game better. Honestly, I think my ideas are better than whatever Nintendo can come up with. SSB Melee on the Gamecube isn't any better. While the idea of knocking an enemy out of the stage with high health is appealing, I feel the brawls lacked something. The 1 player mode is a disgrace. I was expecting a nostalgic trip through the worlds of Nintendo, what I got was the most unoriginal trash I've ever experienced in a 1 player mode. Believe it or not, I played the Break the Targets mini-game much more than the main mode. Music: This and the multiplayer mode are what save the game. It's great hearing classic Nintendo tunes, and Earthbound music remastered! Sweet stuff. I would be writing a complaint letter to Nintendo if they made up some new thoughtless music instead of the classics. Nintendo ought to hire me to help make the next SSB. Don't they realize that most everybody bought this game to see their favorite characters, and relive classic Nintendo memories? Does this game do that? I've imagined an adventure mode where classic lo
      cales such as the Mushroom Kingdom were restored in full 3-D, where you are just blown away by such nostalgia that makes you want to break out your NES and Super NES again. That's what I envisioned in this game when I bought it, not some mindless un-though out action game. Are you writing all this down Nintendo?

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This is a real original Nintendo game. Even with its simple 2-D graphics it is a cut above any multiplayer game I have ever seen. Well I suppose it is the basic plot of the game that makes it so much fun. I mean who could not find beating up that pathetic plumber known as Mario. Smashing him round the face with a baseball bat. Bombing him into oblivion. What could be more amusing?? Don’t get me wrong this is no serious beat em up with blood and screams, this is fun playful beat em up (any game with Pikachu and Jigglypuff attempting to beat up each other can’t be all that serious). The weapons used to destroy you’re opponent vary from light sabres, pink laser guns, flame throwing plants and mines. Weapons are not the only way to destroy your enemies. Each character has different moves, Pikachu for instance has electric attacks, thunderbolts, tail whippings and punching. All this makes it a very amusing game to watch and play. The game is really a multiplayer game. Playing by my self I always feel a bit lonely. No one to laugh with me when I destroy Mario yet again. Also the single player is a bit easy. I find it too easy tricking the computer no matter how hard the setting is. I felt I had to complete single player as you get bonus characters and levels. I just can’t seem to play a game with out getting everything. There is a large variety of levels ranging from castles to space ships and they are all as fun as each other. The levels are large with enough area to potter about before the fight. The graphics in the levels are good which increases the atmosphere in the game. All the characters I feel have sort of personality to them and they all have a different style of fighting. This makes the game long lasting you can just play on it for hours and even longer when your fighting your friends as there’s always the ‘want’ to beat them. This game is great and I give it my highest recommendation. Buy it the
      n invite a few friends over and play it you’ll be amazed how fun it is and you’ll play on it for months.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Super Smash Brothers is a game that the N64 has been waiting for. It has all the loveable characters that made Nintendo what it is today and the best thing is that they can all beat the crap out of each other. Unlike most fighting games, you don't have a specific amount of health. The object of the game to knock your opponent out of the level and make them fall to their doom. Each time you hit them, it weakens them so they will fly further the next time you hit them. The controls for the execution of the moves are very easy to pull off so it is very easy to get the hang of the game. The challenge is in when and how you execute the moves that separate the winners from the losers. Each character has their own special moves and attributes. For examples the Mario Brothers can jump very high as you would expect and can fire fireballs. There are a total of 10 characters to chose from but some are not so famous as the others are. Remember Homebound on the SNES? If you do then you would be glad to hear that Ness plays as one of the characters. There are hidden levels and characters within the game which have to be unlocked by doing various tasks. This can include completing the game with a single character to doing it in a certain amount of time and difficulty. There are various options of play in the game. There is the usual single player against the computer but there are also obstacle courses which you need to utilise each character's strength to complete. There is training mode where you can polish up on your skills so you can bash your friends in my personal favourite game mode, Multi Player. This offers fast multi player action with up to 4 people playing at once. In multi player mode, you can chose to team up with people or just act everyone. There is a time and team option depending on how you would like to play the game. There are also some nifty options that add to the game. There is a kind of Hall of Fame where you can
        check on the statistics of each or your characters. This tells you information such as number of wins/loses and amount of time being used. You can also change the options of the weapons that are give to help you fight. You can change the frequency of them appearing and can define which weapons you want and don't want to appear.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          OK, I know this game is over a year old, but I finally got a chance to play it recently (I don't get to play many N64 games anymore; no one seems to want to play N64 these days) and just had to review it. Hopefully I can still give you all the information possible, especially considering . You gotta give Nintendo credit for one thing: they have an incredible knack for giving us the unexpected. Like in Metroid on the NES when we learned that Samus Aran was a woman. Like when we were introduced to StarFox, the first 16-bit game to sport 3D polygons. And let's not forget the unforgettable transition from 2D to 3D that Mario underwent with the advent of Nintendo 64. Well, there's a new entry to the list: Super Smash Bros. Why is this so unexpected? A couple reasons. One, this is a fighting game. A fighting game from Nintendo, quite possibly the most family-oriented game maker in the world. This is the company that is partially responsible for the ESRB Rating system in 1993; how could they possibly make a fighting game? Well, they did. Second, this isn't your simple one-on-one fighting game (a la Street Fighter, Tekken); this is a one-on-one-on-one-on-one free-for-all featuring all of Nintendo's classic characters. Quite an innovative title, Super Smash Bros. proves quite fun, especially when played with three other people. Perhaps the most ambitious N64 title ever (some would give this award to Hey You, Pikachu!, but that's about as blatant a ripoff of Sega's Seaman as I've ever seen), Smash Bros. has a simple enough premise: choose your favorite classic Nintendo character, engage three others in combat for five minutes, and whoever dies the least number of times wins the match (BTW, you make others die by forcing them off of the fighting platform). Mario's here, as are Link, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Fox McCloud and Captain Falcon from StarFox, Yoshi, Samus Aran from Metroid, and even Jigglypuff and P
          ikachu from the beloved (and utterly disgusting) Pokemon. The ability to engage in a four-way free-for-all with your favorite Nintendo characters is among the best things you can do on your N64, and simply being able to beat up on Pikachu is almost worth the game's price tag. Seriously though, this is a very solid game. The innovative premise seems to allow for unlimited gameplay experiences, even though there are only two modes of play: free-for-all and team battle. Free-for-all speaks for itself; four characters are pitted against each other and it's every fighter for himself. This is arguably the better of the two modes, providing great fun for hours. Team battle requires a little more strategy, as players one and two team up to battle players three and four. The same rules apply; you have five minutes to try and kill the enemy more times than they kill you. Controls, despite the ineffectiveness of the N64 controller when it comes to fighting games, are actually well done. The analog stick moves the characters almost seamlessly, and the action buttons serve their functions well. The action in Smash Bros. is so intense that chances are you won't even bother to think about the effectiveness of the controls, as you'll be too busy trying to beat the living daylights out of the other characters. Adding to the virtual melee is the addition of power-ups. Yoshi eggs, Poke-balls, fire flowers, Zelda hearts, and even Star Wars lightsabers will drop in every so often, and your Nintendo brawler can pick these up and use them accordingly. Sure, this isn't the world's deepest game (there are few secrets to unlock), but Smash Bros. is indeed a blast to play, especially with three other players. Yes, this is a fun single-player game and the two-player game is even a blast, but four-player Smash Bros. action is not to be missed. In terms of graphics, Smash Bros. isn't exactly groundbreaking, but
          it gets the job done. Each fighter is rendered in full polygonal glory, and while the detail and the textures may not be the best in the world, they're decent enough. Each character has a level that corresponds with their respective game, and they look nice with their vibrant colors and signature styles. Animation is pretty smooth most of the time, with slowdown rearing its ugly head only on the rarest of occasions. Sound is decent enough; each arena features classic music that suits it. For instance, Mario's arena features the classic Super Mario Bros. music, while Link's level sports the classic tune from Legend of Zelda. A nice plus for fans, even if it's not CD-quality. In the final analysis, Super Smash Bros. is perhaps the most innovative N64 title ever. Not only is it innovative (something N64 seriously lacks), but it's a Hell of a lot of fun to play. Ranking up there with Goldeneye 007 and Mario Kart 64 as N64's best multiplayer game, Smash Bros. is best suited for when you have a big group of friends over. But even then, if you wanted to beat up on Pikachu all by yourself (come on, you know you want to), you'd still have some fun. This is one of few N64 titles that I can highly recommend.

            Super Smash Bros. is a beat em' up game with (like Mario Kart 64) has alot of the Nintendo characters of the past and present. This game has been rated for everyone, but I would advise you would be over 5 years of age before you start to play. The controls are fairly easy to master but you can get very frustrated with them as well. You get around 10 different characters to start out with but there are 4 secret characters that you have to unlock to complete the game (these are extremely hard to unlock though so don't pull out all of your hair). Go on, buy it!

              Disadvantages

              Super Smash Bros is a beat-em-up with a difference. Instead of you normal fighting characters Super Smash Bros features all you favorite Nintendo stars. There is Mario, Pikachu, Kirby, Samus Aran, Fox McCloud, Link, Donkey Kong and Captain Falcon. There are also 4 secret characters to unlock. The game is really divided into two halves. There is a single player game which sees you picking a character and battling it through to a boss. This can be done on 5 different difficulties but the levels will remain the same. The other option is to play against you friends or the computer in battles. The way the game works is also extremely clever it is in 2 dimensions but the characters are in 3D. This means that getting used to the controls is easy. The challenge is to master the moves. Each character has his or her own abilities. For example Link has the use of the Hook Shot, the Boomerang and bombs whilst Pikachu has a powerful array of electric attacks. The most fun you can have is a 4 player battle with your mates. Its great to se DK pick up Mario and send him flying, or if you are not a Pokemon fan it can be pleasing to beat Pikachu then send him into orbit. You win by injuring your opponents. At the bottom of the screen you all have a meter which tells you how much damage you have received. The more damage the easier it is to finish you off. When you play you will use mainly the 3D stick, A & B, Any C button and R. The game has no blood and is violently non violent. The visuals are great and there is an infinite amount of game play to it. There are also plenty of secrets to unlock but you will have to work them out for yourselves! Don’t lets its cartoon like appearance put you off. This is another great game and will provide many hours of entertainment.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I first remember hearing of this game way back in an old issue of N64 magazine (in its glory days), I think they had reviewed the Japanese release. I remember the magazine printing a little form for its readers to fill in if they wanted desperately to see the game released on these shores. Then they would send them off to Nintendo and wait for the results. Who knows whether the publishers actually did, but the point is the magazine must have received literally thousands of these replies, and this is just after one review and a few screenshots. I can remember my 13 year old brother insisting it was going to be the best beat-em-up ever and was getting all his friends to send off these slips of paper. It was going to sell like hot cakes. Well, the game got a British release, my brother had pre ordered it the day of that first review, so we were able to try it out from day one. And what else could anyone say the moment they picked up the joypad, but wooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!! I don't think the cartridge is made from plastic and electronics but instead, of pure FUN! It follows after many classic Nintendo games in that it involves the most popular characters battling it out against each other. Smash Bros included some less well known characters (at the time of its release), these being that guy from Super Metroid and of course the now universally recognised Pokemon duo of Pikachu and Jigglypuff. I don't think there's any pointless storyline as accompanies most fighting games, but I do recall an amazingly bizarre ending sequence once the one player game has been completed. This is how it works: the single player game consists of a chosen character fighting ten or so battles against increasingly difficult opponents that annoyingly can't be unlocked to fight as yourself. I mean, how cool would it have been to fight as the giant hand from the final stage. Smash Bros 2 on the Gamecube perhaps...? The arenas are
                two dimensional but work surprisingly well. Each character has their own setting, such as Zelda's castle for Link. Some areas seem a little small like Kirby's tree, but this makes a good place for a more skillful game. After each stage you are awarded points based on how long the fight took, how many special moves you used and various other obscure ratings. There are also bonus stages which earn you points but are better for improving your jumping surviving skills. Even so the one player mode can be completed within a few attempts and I'm sure the multiplayer mode is where you'll realise whole days go past in the blink of an eye. Said multiplayer mode is hilarious. Get three mates round and you're guaranteed literally hours of fun (even better when slightly tipsy) beating the crap out of each other's favourite characters. It's great because it just works so well. The characters are fairly well balanced, although Kirby can float across the arena giving that player a distinct advantage. From experience he's only good for beginners. The characters only have a limited amount of unique moves and throws, but after playing you realise many more would detract from the intended simplicity of the game. As you build up damage your character gets projected further from the playing field with each hit, and get hit too far and you won't be able to reach the edge losing you a life. It's a great feeling to catapult someone into the distance with a direct upwards attack then just tap them off the edge if they manage to cling back on. You can choose between games based on lives or time, the time version tends to get the tension going because your kill total is kept hidden till the end. Another great but pointless feature is the still-frame mode, which pauses the game and zooms in to the action. This can produce some truly hilarious pictures; try using Kirby's taunt then pausing. Overall it's the simp
                licity and addictiveness of the game that keeps you coming back for more and if thought of as a multiplayer only game, you'll never tire of it. That's a guarantee. It's certainly up there with Goldeneye and Mario Kart, a true masterpiece.

                  Disadvantages

                  This is a beautiful game and a Nintendo classic just like Super Mario Kart was for the snes. The cool thing in this game is that it allows you to beat up characters such as Mario, Pikachu and Link or you can in turn be them. Also the most original part is that there is no energy bar and instead there is a percentage of how low the gravity is for you character which means the more you get hit the easier it is for you to fall off and lose. The multiplayer option is the best part of the game and in some ways can even be compared to the quality of Goldeneye and Perfect Dark which are also fanatastic games. There are loads in this game to keep you entertained such as unlocking characters and levels. The amount of items in the game is enormous with a wide range including light sabres to mushrooms and these all have different affects if you get them in the game. Possibly the let down in this game is the poor single player mode which is very very easy. You can also have a go at the time attack which is another way of earning a new character. When you play the multiplayer you can choose to play it in loads of differnet winning modes i.e. you can win by dying the least times or a time limit can be put on. I would have preferred it if they had put more things into the single player but I realize they have limited memory on the carts so I can forgive them for that. I completed this game in a couple of weeks and got all the hidden characters and levels which shows how easy the single player mode was. I would definetly recommend this to any fan of multiplayer games but for single players this will get boring very fast. The graphics are about what you would expect on tha N64. Overall this is a fast paced multiplayer game with a unique and innovative style of its own. Nintendo fans SHOULD own this one.

                    The person who thought up the idea of smash brothers was a mastermind. The game uses the whole Nintendo crew including characters like Mario, Donkey Kong, Link and so on, fighting against each other in the biggest scrap of the century!!! Once again Nintendo have created a game, which is truly superb!!! It may sound like an ordinary beat em up game but I think it is above that. There is no health or energy bar where when it runs out you die, but instead a damage bar where the more you get hurt the further you fly through the air when hit. When the energy bar gets too high you can be punched, kicked or throw off the edge and fall into oblivion only to come back for revenge on most settings. However this depends on what setting you have the game on because as well as having different skill levels the game also has a stock setting which determines how many times you can come back for revenge. As well as this function on single player, on multiplayer you have a time setting, which is basically a time limit for how long the match lasts. During this time you can get thrown off and come back for revenge as many times as you want. The time limit can be set up to 20mins or unlimited time. During the matches there are pick me ups which come down from the sky, which add to the fun and excitement of the game. These objects can be all sorts of things such as a sword, a laser gun, a fire flower, a pokemon ball, a tomato that makes your damage bar back to zero and so on. Each character in the game are well known Nintendo characters, which all have there own set of individual moves, and all the normal characters have there own fighting arena’s which you have to battle them in on single player. In multiplayer you can just choose where you fight or select an arena at random. Just like Nintendo games smash brothers is packed with extra goodies that you find as you go through the game. When you first visit the character sel
                    ect screen you will notice that four boxes are filled up with static. And if you watched the intro carefully you would have seen four shadows appear at the end. These are the secret characters, which you can unlock through the game. The secret characters are jigglypuff, luigi, captain falcon and a small boy called Ness. But wait there’s more!!!! Once you have unlocked all the secret characters you will be able to open the secret fighting stage. All you have to do is complete the game on any level with all the characters, (after unlocking the secret four) and then tadaaaaa!!!! You have access to the mushroom kingdom, the home of the very first Mario game!!! All in all this is a great game. The single player is good but the game excels in multiplayer. It is the perfect, hilarious alternative for those sick of shoot em ups. It’s a great game and I would recommend it to anyone.

                      This is THE beat-em-up on the N64. You can, for those misguided among you that don't like Pokemon, beat up Pikachu with Donkey Kong. If you want a beat-em-up for the N64 this is the one to get. Although those hardcore beat-em-uppers won't like its cartoony style, this is a challenging and enthralling game. As well as the eight normal characters, there are four extra ones to get. If you do get this game, try to get them, as three of the four are very good and there are some old faces from previous nintendo games (Do you remember Samus Aran from Metroid? for the older gamers who had NES). This game has the largest lifespan of any game I have played, apart from perfect dark! There is wealth of extra features to unlock and the ability to play against bots makes this a good game for poeple who only have one controller and scince this doesn't need an expansion pak this is the best multiplayer game on the N64 (apart from PD) My rating 11/10 (it's that good)

                        A fighting game containg your favourite Nintendo characters? Not what you'd expect from Nintendo is it? But this is no ordinary beat em up. Nintendo dont do things like everybody else, they do it better. Instead of having a normal, hit the other guy till his energy runs ou type game, the object is to gradually wear the opponents energy down and then knock them off the arena. What's great is that you can have up to 4 players on screen at the same time. The only disappointment with this game is the 1 player mode. I t wont keep you interested as long as the multiplayer.
