Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A Raucous Clash Reunion

by Jeff Cork

From its humble Nintendo 64 beginnings, Super Smash Bros. has been a delightful neutral zone for players looking for top-tier competition as well as friends who just want to kick back and watch Princess Peach knock the stuffing out of Bowser. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the culmination of everything that's come before, offering a massive roster of classic characters and stages and subtle additions that make the game feel fresh. Whether you haven't played Smash since your dorm-room days or you breathlessly await each new entry, Ultimate is not to be missed.

One reason why the Smash Bros. series has been so successful is that it's one of those games where the old "easy to learn, difficult to master" cliché applies. In that way, Ultimate maintains its reputation as being one of the best party games around. It's a great equalizer, with characters that are recognizable and memorable, and above all else it's fun to play. Ultimate adds some new faces to the proceedings, like Animal Crossing's Isabelle, Metroid's Ridley, and the Inklings from Splatoon. I like seeing some new blood (even if it's never spilled), but none of the new ones fully clicked with me. Isabelle comes closest, feeling like a fresh variation on Villager, but I kept getting drawn back to my old mainstays including returning favorite Pichu.

Ultimate's new World of Light solo mode wisely doesn't try to shoehorn platforming elements or push too far beyond the core of what Smash does best. Instead, you navigate a large map and take on themed challenges. The gimmick - and it's a pretty good one - is that you're freeing the spirits of characters who have fallen to a mysterious force. The spirits represent a vast array of characters from the world of gaming, the majority of whom aren't represented as playable heroes in the roster. For instance, one spot on the map might have you saving a goron chief from Ocarina of Time, aka a giant, tan-furred Donkey Kong. Or a battle against Snorlax might have newcomer King K. Rool taking on the role of the slumbering Pokémon. Basically, imagine the playable cast cosplaying a wide array of other gaming characters. I spent dozens of hours in the mode, and I was continuously surprised by how creative the developers got in finding doppelgangers for these matches.

Concept

Gather together the most comprehensive collection of brawlers and stages in the (ahem) ultimate celebration of all things Smash

Graphics

The action looks great as it whips by, but entering camera mode lets you fully appreciate the astonishing amount of visual detail. It's too bad World of Light's map didn't get the same attention

Sound

Hundreds upon hundreds of songs pulled from iconic Nintendo franchises and obscurities, makes this a retro fan's dream, plus some fun third-party cuts

Playability

The Switch's tiny thumbsticks aren't the best way to play. Fortunately, plenty of alternatives (including the almighty GameCube controllers) are available

Entertainment

A wealth of tweaks and new additions like the World of Light campaign help to keep Ultimate from feeling like a greatest-hits retread
