We finally got Super Smash Bros Brawl, and have been playing it every free moment for the last 2 days. After playing the n64 smash for 2 years, jumping to Brawl is a HUGE difference, Brawl’s graphics look a thousand times better. The fire and bombs don’t look like animated .gifs anymore, and the character models look dramatically better due to the fact they have more than 12 polys. As always Kirby is still just a glorified sphere and looks the same, but he still owns all others.
The biggest difference between the two games is the pace. The pace in Brawl is a so much faster, I get lost and have no idea where I am, what game I’m playing or even what my name is. This is the first time in a video game that I feel that I just can’t keep up with the pace and it makes me feel like a middle aged person playing an atari for the first time in the mid 80’s. There is so mush happening on the screen sometimes that I feel like I should just give up and go back to the n64 version; or better yet, where’s my atari 2600, I can pwn me some noobs on that thing.
