I'm a bit late on this (my PC was gone and barely got it back to comment right now) but I think it was really dissapointing. 4/10 or something like that probably.
Instead of treating it like an E3 Direct it seems like they treated it as a Smash Direct for the most part just with a few extra announcements thrown in. Having a focus on Smash Bros is one thing, but having it take up almost the entire direct that's supposed to be about E3 is another. It's like they assumed everyone is a Smash fan and would enjoy it.
95% of what they showed of Smash could have been shown in a later Smash Direct, I mean the game comes out in December for crying out loud so they have more than enough time. The game looks great obviously but when it reaches the point where they are talking about stuff like how they changed a character's face, it's almost like they are reading patch notes as I heard others describe it.
Other than that though, some of what they showed was really good. Daemon X Machina looked interesting, Super Mario Party was a nice surprise and looks fun, etc. I just would have rather wanted new game announcements as opposed to 25 minutes of Smash.
