BRAWL…Brawl…brawl… *yawn*

Well today my buddies came over and we gave Super Smash Brothers Brawl one of our own test runs. Our style of playing smash is usually a 99 stock match with 1.0 damage ratio and items on low. We played about 8 hours straight (nothing compared to what we usually did with melee), I myself was testing out all the characters in order to see if I would use one of the new guys. Well I came to a conclusion that instead of trying to play a new character I’m just going to drop the game as a whole. Now you guys out there might be like “WHAT! your a noob, brawl owns” well I just happen to disagree with all the nerfs and speed changes done to the game.

I personally love the new features, new stages, new items, and new characters added to the game and the cut scenes are hilarious, but I can’t accept the gameplay speed change. They made the gameplay slower, the wave dashing is gone (even though that was originally not intended in melee either it was discovered “GLITCH”) and a couple of the BEST characters from Melee have been nerfed. Here are 2 of my favorite characters and what I’ve seen nerfed SO FAR.

  • Cpt Falcon: His electric knee attack does not do as much damage nor does it have as much of an impact, and his reaction time is not as fast.
  • Fox: major strength nerfs in the jumping up smash attack, and also his up special attack.

Well this is open for discussion and for flaming but please if you have not played Super Smash Brothers Melee AND Brawl then do not post any comments. How do you guys feel about brawl? O yea and one last thing DO NOT even think about using the online feature….. Lag much?

P.S: For the first time ever I actually got bored playing Smash Bros game
