Damn, this game went down to 92. It's about the same as Melee and 4 and below Brawl.

I'm honestly a little surprised. Thought the Switch's hype factor would carry it to a 94 or 95.

Oh well. At least it still has a 90s rating. :)

Still quite disheartening, as it is leagues better than Smash 4 WiiU and  3DS in virtually every way. I tend to use GameRankings and it's below even wiiU there, which saddens me. 

The only other game I think that rivals it for OVERALL quality is Brawl. the hardcore hate brawl thanks to floaty mechanics and tripping, but it was easily the most accessible and welcoming of the games. It has the best sales and the highest review scores, so that says something. That said, Ultimate SHOULD get the best sales and review scores because it's th emost refined in the series, has by far the most content (Even with stuff like Event Mode, Trophies, and much of the arena stuff taken out), the most characters, the most levels, the most options, and it's crisp and clean enough to appease both the casuals and the hardcore in equal measure. 

It's not perfect but it's arguably the best in the series. I hate people trying to get edgy clicks, which I'm noticing more and more.
