Super Smash Bros Ultimate – The Review

Well, I know you’ve been clamoring for it, so here it is the review of Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.

If You Own A Switch

It was a long time coming, and many of us snatched this bad boy up on day one. We were lucky enough to get this game as a Christmas gift from a good friend of ours, and the entire family has enjoyed every single second we have spent laying this game.

Released for the Nintendo Switch at the end of 2018, this game went on to sell millions of copies in its first month on shelves. Almost everyone that owns a Switch has a copy of this game, that’s an actual statistic believe it or not. Also, that bodes well for future incarnations of the series.

This game blew us away, allowing you to unlock characters as you played, be it by yourself or with your family members and friends while parked in front of your TV. With 74 characters in all, all of them immediately available—after unlocking them, this game quickly proved why Super Smash Bros could be a franchise that Nintendo could revisit time and again.

Now, there is a season pass for this game, for 24.99 you get 5 bonus characters that are beginning to roll out, the first of which is Joker from the Persona series. Others can unveil as the season pass rolls on.

Many Modes

Anyone who has ever played a Smash Bros game knows what to expect from this series, classic fighting action, simplified, yet deep combat, and characters that everyone loves. There is plenty for everyone, and I could give you a brief rundown on what to expect.

Classic Mode. The name pretty much sums it up, classic action, be it by yourself against the computer, or with friends.

Spirit Mode. It would be the games story mode, giving you a chance to play through the actual story behind the Ultimate game.

Training Mode. It is pretty self-explanatory obviously.


Challenge Mode. This mode allows you to see challenges you must undertake to gain rewards and much more.

There are more modes, including online, but I won’t go into them. Instead, I can tell you to go pick this up. It is a must own if you’re a Switch owner.

Nintendo Did It Again!

This game is fantastic, and a fantastic series. If you have owned a Nintendo in the past, then chances are you have played one incarnation or another along the way.

It is a phenomenal family game, something that Nintendo does probably better than anyone. This game is one of those titles where you play with friends and family at your side.

So much chaos and laughs to have, so much fun for any who picks up a controller. Also, in the end, that’s what it’s all about. Fun for the whole family as well as fun for the individual, a Nintendo staple for you and your family.

So, there you have it. This title isn’t a game where the graphics are going to blow your mind, or have this super deep story, no, it’s all about fun, and that is in rare supply these days in the gaming market. So, in conclusion, I give this a 5 out of 5. If you own a Switch, you need this game, plain and simple.

Be On The Watch!

There you go, the review you have all been waiting for, one that says buy the game with a huge smile. Be sure to stay tuned folks. I have a couple of different reviews scheduled soon, reviews co-written by my stepson and stepdaughter.

So, be on the watch, they are heading your way very soon on a couple of games that I’m sure you can enjoy. Until then, I leave you as I always do. See you in the games.
