Super Smash Bros.™ Melee

Overview

The original Super Smash Brothers was a huge hit on Nintendo 64. It was widely lauded as one of the best multiplayer games ever. The basic aim was to knock players off multi level platforms to win. This concept remains the same in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but the game is a great leap forward. With major graphical improvements, updated single player capabilities, countless secrets and extras to unlock, customisable settings, and frantic 4-player action, Super Smash Bros. Melee is not just a sequel, it is one of the best developed and perfectly executed games yet.

Super Smash Bros. Melee features over 20 of Nintendo’s Superstar characters from favourite past and present Nintendo games, including: Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Link, Bowser, Captain Falcon, Ice Climbers, Samus, Pikachu, Kirby, Yoshi, and many more. Classic characters have been enhanced down to the smallest detail. Nintendo’s All Star line-up of characters has never looked so good.

Graphics

  • Nintendo’s cast of superstars has never looked so good. Characters have a very impressive “solid” look to them. There is no evidence of polygons or blocky characters. All are super smooth, crisp, very colourful, and animated brilliantly.

  • The depth and variety of the 30 plus levels is very exciting, with so many different styles brought together to make one brilliant looking game.

Gameplay

  • In addition to 25 characters, over 30 arenas 9 different game modes, Super Smash Bros. Melee also offers all new moves and techniques, and nearly 30 new offensive and defensive items to use in battle.

  • Many of the modes, characters, and levels have to be unlocked, and there are nearly 300 trophies from Nintendo’s history to collect.

  • As well as traditional multiplayer fighting matches, Super Smash Bros Melee offers an immense choice of 1-player modes. Players can delve into a 1-player adventure, which puts them in classic 2-D side scrolling levels based on Nintendo games, such as Super Mario Bros, Zelda 2, Ice Climbers, F-Zero and more.

  • 51 special “Event Matches” allow single players to take the ultimate challenge to complete specially designed scenarios. Event battles include Bomb Battles, fights against giant, invisible, or multiple characters, Coin Battles, Poke-ball Battles and many more.

  • New battle arenas seen in Super Smash Bros. Melee are exceptional. Classic Nintendo locations have been faithfully recreated and updated for the GameCube. For example, one fighting stage is positioned above a highly dangerous F-Zero race-track, another is set at Hyrule Temple.

  • A key feature of Super Smash Bros. Melee is its speed and incredibly frantic gameplay. With 4-players on screen simultaneously the game does not slow down, or even falter, which is an incredible achievement considering the high quality of graphics.

Sound

Soundwise SSBM is an epic journey down memory lane. All of Nintendo’s classic tunes are faithfully reproduced and perfectly orchestrated and modernised for new and old fans alike to enjoy. Catchy and inspiring tunes such as the ones from the Super Mario Bros adventures, Metroid, F-Zero, Kirby, Starfox, Donkey Kong 64, and Zelda are brought back from the past in outstanding fashion. For old-school Nintendo fans these tunes will bring much joy and memories.

Seeing as all of the best music from the best games in Nintendo’s history are all on the one game, this is basically the best “ video game soundtrack” ever assembled. Listening to all of Nintendo’s music in such high quality is a real treat, and makes one aware of how special these “video game” tunes really are.
