...I loled at the user review in the site. The hell, the game is childish?

 

Anyways, as for the site's review, B+ sounds like a good score.

Is there a game out for the Wii that isn't childish? Don't want to seem like a troll, but sincerely, is there?

Also, the game seems to trash unlucky Wii's so I'd say that knocks it down a full 10%.

1)You're making the assumption that blood, gore, and/or politically heavy plots make a game not "childish".2)Even if we go by your perception, hmmm, well, there's Metroid Prime 3, RE 4, RE Umbrella Chronicles, No More Heroes, Manhunt 2, Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Escape From Bug Island, Scarface, The Godfather...I won't even go into ones currently being developed.

wow wow back up a second... Brawl is a he?

 Manuelf speaks Spanish as his primary language, and he's not that good with English yet. Actually, I've noticed that his English has improved a lot since he first joined here.

 Anyways, in Spanish (and most languages, for that matter), there is no such thing as an "it". Everything has a gender to it - either male or female.

I can't take a site seriously when it can't review a Nintendo game without referring to fans of the series as rabid fanboys over a dozen times. I wonder if they'll say that MGS4 is just for Konami fanboys and that GTAIV is just for RockStar fanboys.

 

 

Ooh, and this " a non-high-def visual upgrade of Smash Bros. Melee " gives them credibility too.  It's as if they don't know the Wii doesn't do high-def, and they're blaming this game instead of the system!  Jackasses.






"One thing that’s safe to say: Even if you’re not a slavering Nintendo cheerleader, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the best shot in the history of the Smash Bros. phenomenon, certainly the most-refined product of the series thus far, and a solid, friend-bashing good time. You huge Nintendo-heads out there can safely bump up our score a half-grade or so and still be in the right."



Who writes this shit? "Rabid fanboy" "fanboy" "Nintendo cheerleader" "Nintendo-head" all in the same review of a Nintendo game. It's like it hurts them to enjoy a Nintendo game, so they have to keep reminding us that they're not a fan of the company and despise the millions of people who are.

This isn't the work of a fanboy, it's the work of a site starved for attention.

DING DING DING!

The site's a beta. They're just trying to crank up the page hits so they can get some advertising revenue.

Edit: Hey, here's a nice quote from the review's author where he pretty much admits to being a troll:

"Yeah, okay--it's almost a tradition to give the more rabid Nintendo fanboys/fangirls some virtual noogies, because A) it's kinda fun, B) there IS some historical precedent to do so, and C) because I was once guilty of the exact same thing myself (shoulda seen me, the first time I spent an hour w/ Miyamoto-san--I was so geekstruck that I started forgetting both my Japanese AND my English...)"

 Real professional.

Is this game really that good? I mean can someone pinpoint what makes it so amazing?
I would assume playing over the internet and rankings would be really fun, but a perfect 10 level of fun? A perfect ten takes graphics, replay, gameplay, layout, sound and all sorts of things being absolutely perfect or near it to get scores that high.

I just dont see how this game could be that good. Its really as good as the best games of all time?

I did say in another post that I would try to pick this up, and im sticking to that, but I have the feeling if I go looking for the best game in history I will be severly disappointed.



If you actually read the review he praises the game a lot while pointing out some bad points (long load times, limited online etc). It is one of the better reviews I have read lately. What is b+ anyway, 85%? Thats a pretty good score in my opinion. 

edit: other reviews on the site:

Assassin's Creed: A-

Devil May Cry 4: C+

Burnout Paradise: B+

Seems like a pretty fair unbiased review site to me. I would say the DMC4 score is a little bit harsh.

thetonestarr  is right.

That´s how it works in Portuguese as well. "Ele" (He) or "Ela" (she), there´s no (it).

About <90% review on Brawl, just remember what GAMESPOT did to TWILIGHT PRINCESS... 

An 88% review because the game feels "stuck in the past"...
