Super smash is a bit over rated ofc everyone has it and it’s fun but I got bored of it quick and I feel like it’s best played with friends, it does have a couple dlcs that are pretty good but it’s just not my taste I guess

This is my first Smash game, but it's an incredible intro to the classic fighting series. The roster is crazy, the gameplay is hard-hitting and satisfying, and playing with friends is a blast. My only gripe is the incredibly long campaign that might test your patience.

Played hours of this with friends. So many different characters, so much fun, high skill ceiling. Online is pretty rough though.

This game is amazing. The Gamplay never gets old and when you kick someone’s **** it really feels like you deserved that win, no bs. The characters look amazing in general. While I can’t say it preforms perfectly but it performs amazing in general. Just the SHEER amount of content would give it four stars but all these things add up to make the best smash game so far. I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the content so I’m hoping to 100% it soon. 5 stars, Ten out of Ten game.

Most vibrant memories from my youth usually start or end with kicking my siblings' butts in Super Smash Bros on the Gamecube. This game feels like a stroll down memory lane: the characters, the stages, the item drops, etc. are all transferred from twenty years ago. The developers have added fine-tuning, new modes, and new characters of course, but from my recollection, the core mechanics remain the same. My main gripe has to do with the overhead: I have issues with buying a game for full price (especially a port without a full-length campaign) and then having to pay hefty fees for DLC and online extras. I do commend the developers for keeping couch multiplayer as an option, because in this age of microtransactions, they could have canned every bit of nostalgic excitement and traded it for online multiplayer. Speaking of which, online multiplayer has least amount of care or consideration. Frequent connection issues and a monthly (or annual) fee are some of my major hang ups. TL;DR: Online multiplayer sucks. Single player campaign is short. Couch multiplayer feeds on nostalgia to great results.

Very good catalog of characters, really nice fundamentals and almost any character is fun to play, good with friends or alone. Not very good campaign and online sucks.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a great game to play at a party or gathering with friends. The story mode of the game is amazing, it is packed with spirits and a good story + soundtrack. There is a good roster of characters that is expanding through DLC packs. The gameplay is usually fairly smooth in good. Online however isn't usually the best experience, there is a lot of lag.

It's super fun to play with friends, the characters are great. I main Toon Link if I can, if not him, then it's usually Ness. I haven't played most of the story mode, but I will eventually!

Ultimate's mechanics are pretty solid compared to Smash 4. Of course there are some weird things like the buffer system, which I don't like too much, but it's tolerable. Online: it's good enough, but leaves much to be desired. World of Light/Spirits: it's not Subspace yet I really like it for what it is. I don't mind spirits replacing trophies. The other modes are also fantastic and will have you spending hours on offline play if you really get into them. Ultimate is nearly the perfect Smash game to me.

This game has a long story mode but it help to unlock characters while you do it. This game the online is where the real game is in my opinion. Yes it can lag here and there but overall this game will be alive for atleast 5 more years and a ton of people play it. This game was done perfectly.

Every single thing about the game is amazing, if you are here for the story, don’t buy it when you expect mk levels, the story is really average and lacks story telling. But the gameplay is wonderful and fluid.

The game is simply put: amazing. 74 Fighters, 103 Stages, 1400+ Spirits as of April 2020, and tons of modes. There's really no reason to get bored. First: Classic Mode. Not only is classic mode not the joke that is Wii U's classic mode, but every character has a special route fit for that character. Stage Builder gives you way more freedom then brawl or Wii U. Training mode is way more pro players friendly, by giving you a Training only stage. New modes like Squad strike, Tornament, World of light, spirits board, Smashdown, and Super Sudden Death, all are great additions to the game. Also, spirits. they are suprisingly in depth. Don't let the pngs fool you becuase these can give you boost's and matchups that will make pokemon look like child's play. The only thing i would say is bad is the online. But, other then that, this game is more then worth your buck.

Easily the best Smash Bros game if all you want is to have fun with friends. Sure, Melee has the competitive aspect down with high speed gameplay and all sorts of tech to learn, but Ultimate has the content you need to keep the game fresh for untold hours. The game runs at a solid 60fps at all times, has an absolutely massive roster (especially if you have the DLC characters) and most importantly, is just great fun. I've spent so many hours playing Ultimate with friends already and will likely have many many more to come.

The "Super Smash Bros." series has always been fun. "Ultimate" is no exception, earning its name by throwing together (almost) all the content of the previous titles. Perfect for local multiplayer with friends, It's just a shame they have yet to figure out the online. But, if you're willing to close an eye on it, you'll find out that "Ultimate" is not just a fighting game, rather a celebration of gaming as a whole.

Perfect for playing with friends. In my opinion the best party game on the switch (yes, better than Mario Party!). I recommend this game, even if it's your first time into the super smash bros universe!

One of the "must-have" in the switch library. Super Smash Bros Ultimate gives you a simple fighting game with tons of variety in gameplay and in characters. The game is fairly simple to learn but hard to master with nuances with each character. Overall, Smash is one of the best games to play with or without friends and will be one of the best fighting game experience that you can get on the Nintendo Switch
