I forgot to pay attention the power-levels. It's quite embarrassing really



Only played it for a few hours, but most of the fights had the CPU just above plain dumb. Didn't seem that hard to grow the roster, and losing every now and then shouldn't be cause for concern.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It's not you can literally be killed with in seconds off one combo you have to know what approach to take as the situation unfolds, also never use any Swordsman against the Belmonts.

Yeah, that's how you feel in the first few unlocks. But it becomes hard quickly. Although it's also based on personal playstyle. 

I've personally been destroyed by Ridley, Jigglypuff, and Isabelle a few times.

You still have the option to challenge again the fighters you failed to unlock, by doing so you can choose the fighter you want to use. Since there’s no real unlock conditions and you can rematch the fighters, I do think that Ultimate is more accessible.



Agreed. I lost more than one challenger battle.

Also, World of Light is the most unbalanced thing I've seen in quite some time. Even on normal difficulty, there are some spirit battles that are just plain unfair. And I'm not talking late game, this happened in the first 2-4 hours. Fighting two characters at the same time while they heal gradually? A stamina battle where your oponent doubles your stamina and has an assist trophy kicking your butt? And I could keep going, there are tons of these...

I agree on WOL's balance some of the fights are just plain stupid I hate ones where some assist trophy is causing problems like the one with Sonic and that lava lamp blob or what ever it is, it's bad enough dealing with Sonic's campy style but you have that thing moving all over the place doing 30-40% damage per hit.

Sonic with the Rayman spirit will haunt me forever...



I haven't even touched World of Light yet. I wanted to get the complete roster first. Just been having smash battles and going through classic.

I have no issue with the difficulty myself, I mean I'm glad there is challenge. But, I really wanted to refer this game to my older brother who has finally come back to Nintendo (hasn't owned a Nintendo console since 64). I feel like the difficulty in unlocking the full roster would turn him off. I'm sure there are other casual players who would be frustrated. That is all I was trying to get at.
