Finally we get a Smash Bros. with decent online play! It took us far too long! This game is an amazingly fun time waster you can take on either seriously or casually and you won't feel unwelcome. I gotta say the new gamemodes are... Alright. But yes I do miss the beat 'em up adventure mode. It would be a nice extra addition to the core game. But classic mode is true to its name, pure arcade bliss. Overall the best thing about Smash 4 is in its presentation. Everything is vibrant, designed specifically to hype you up and feel excited and it works best when played with friends. Even the opening theme gives the feel of entering into a colosseum, ready for battle. The bad things about the game are indeed hard to fix because they are intrinsic of the genre. It's repetitive and gets tiresome quickly if you're playing on your own, something that the adventure mode was nice for. But still, good game, excellent with friends, a package of fun designed for short bursts.
Score: 8.0 (Great!)
