Super Smash Bros - Nintendo 64 (released 1999)
This is the first of the cross nintendo fighting games that were released. This game was orginally going to be made for SNES, but it was held back until it debuted on the N64. Including characters such as Mario, Link and Fox from the games Mario bros., Legend of Zelda and Star Fox respectively, the game went off with a hit. With the story mode ending with the fight with master hand to the training to the mini games (break the targets, board the platforms etc) to the extra unlockable characters, this game had a lot of people talking. The multiplayer feature with the ability to battle 3 friends at once was a huge hit for this game. With 12 characters to choose from to have fun brawling your friends and a large selection of landscapes to battle on, this game is a great success for the N64.
This is one of the most fun and one of the greatest N64 games, i love the gameplay and characters and how I could battle my friends and show them who was boss, to this day, I still play it to own my friends now.
Excellent stuff for the N64, each button has its own move with the main being A for physical attack and B, B+Up and B+Down being special moves. Down+B was usually a smash where as Up+B was a high jump. the battles were for as long as you wanted and the characters have health percentages, which increase in number with each hit and the degree of the hit, as well as items used to decrease the number of health percentage or damage foes.
A great fighting game for its time. (review by Lightning Strike)
