A video game review written by: Lee Sonogan
(2018) Action, adventure, fantasy
Since getting a Nintendo Switch in 2017, I have been waiting for this video game. This is the fifth instalment of the crossover fighting video game in the Super Smash Bros. series. The game follows traditional gameplay from past Super Smash games while offering many new features, characters, game modes and much more. Receiving highly regarded acclaim for critics and fans alike, some have said it is the best Super Smash Bros. game ever made. This video game is a nostalgia monster.
Firstly, this video game has 82 playable characters including 5 DLC characters. This includes all previous characters from past Super Smash Bros. titles. You start with only eight characters which include: Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Samus, Pikachu, Yoshi and Fox. A part of the fun in this game is unlocking a challenger that is approaching. New fighters to the series include: Inkling, Ridley, Simon, King K. Rool, Isabelle, Incineroar and Piranha Plant.
This video game is full of content. It has all the classic game modes from past Smash games. New game modes which are completely customisable. There are more maps and items which are also customisable. A collection of music from all Nintendo series which can be made into playlists and played during fights. Then there is World of Light. A new solo adventure game with interesting challenges and upgraded items called spirits. Also, online mode is good but can lag if your internet connection is bad or play against people from different countries. Otherwise, it runs pretty good.
Owning all copies of the Super Smash Bros. video games except the one of the Nintendo Wii U, I can truly state my opinion that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the best in the series. Since it’s release in December 2018, I have played over 25 hours of it. And that is mostly solo play. Visually it is impressive to play while running smooth enough to allow very competitive gameplay. I intend to keep playing this, as I want to dominate my friends on it and also go to local tournaments. I recommend this video game to all fans of Nintendo.

Fox McCloud: [aims his blaster at Galeem] Don’t let a single one get away! Marth: [referring to the multiple Master Hands floating in the sky] We’ll each need to take down about ten. Princess Zelda: Stow your fear. It’s now or never! Pit: We’ll win this. I know we will!
