I'm not judging the game purely off that...if I was I woulda said it deserves a 0 for not including it. Its not based on SSE, there should have been a new story mode that is able to compete with other fighting games. Not having a major single player is a major flaw, worth way more than one point lower on metacritic. If the next Mortal Kombat released without a story mode it would get ripped apart, but SSB got a free pass. The fact is SSB has fallen behind other fighting games in that category.
SSB got a free pass because of no story mode? Tell me does every fighter have as much content in it as SSB? or even close?
Tell me up to 3 fighting genre franchise's that beat SSB in these categorys...
~Number of Stages?
~Number of Playable Characters?
~Number of Soundtracks in the game?
~Have over 4 players fighting at once?
(Cant think of any more to ask :-/
