I'm just confused about the whole game really, so I would like some advice from fans of the series and I would like answers to some questions/concerns I have about the game.
First off my console history is pretty limited (SMS, PS1 and now Wii & PS3), so as you can see I have no experience of Nintendo consoles prior to my Wii and so I'm kind of in the dark about SSBB. The hype and review scores are all well and good but I've fallen into this trap before and not liked games which are supposed to be some of the best ever made (e.g Zelda).
I was told (on this forum) that to get the most out of the game you really need to be up for mulitplayer play and that this is where the main focus and enjoyment of the game lies. If this is the case this is not the game for me, and that's fine, but I don't want to be put off a game which I could find amazing based on assumptions and misinformation. So I have a few questions:
1 - If I have no intention of playing multiplayer is this still a game I will enjoy for a considerable amount of time?
2 - Does the game have a lot of depth? I ask this because it sounds like a Tekken or Virtua Fighter but with Nintendo characters and the single player (if you can call it that) in those games gets boring after a few days.
3 - That leads me to another question - do these SSBB games genuinely have longevity? Will I be addicted to this game for hours and will it take a long time to complete like SMG, or is it analgous to a Wario Ware or Virtua Fighter where there is no genuine single player objective as such and nothing to 'complete'?
To give you some idea of my tastes in Nintendo games so far - I've bought and not liked Wario Ware, Zelda, Wii Play and Mario & Sonic at the Olympics. On the other hand I've bought a loved RE4, Metroid & SMG.
There is a heck of a lot of hype on this forum about this game, lots of excited users, and lots of perfect scores for this game already but it's not necessarily a game I will enjoy. I really would welcome some genuine imput based on my concerns and my tastes,
Thanks in advance :)
