Reviews for the long-awaited Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS have come rolling in on review aggregator, Metacritc. The game currently has a Metascore of 88 based on twenty-four reviews. Joystiq and Games Radar had the following to say about Nintendo’s latest brawler.
“While there are definite areas where Nintendo could improve on Super Smash Bros. in an inevitable sequel, this is the most feature-complete, compelling Super Smash Bros. entry to date”
“A highly polished iteration of Smash Bros. that plays great on its own. But when you’re afflicted by latency problems in local multiplayer, you’ll suddenly become painfully aware of the 3DS version’s critical shortcomings.”
