Su­per Smash Bros Melee

(GameCube)

Hyper - - FEATURE -

There are two schools of camp over which Smash Bros is the best, but there’s no ques­tion of which is the most im­por­tant. Melee laid the groundwork, and re­mains, to this day, one of the most beloved fight­ers ever. Melee is so iconic that it has kept the GameCube con­troller rel­e­vant well into the Wii U years, and it’s a bit eas­ier to ap­proach than Smash Bros Wii U, a game that re­lies on you al­ready be­ing a fan (know­ing that this is prob­a­bly a safe as­sump­tion for most play­ers). It has a su­pe­rior sin­gle­player mode, which is im­por­tant for get­ting to know how the di er­ent char­ac­ters work, a more man­age­able ‘tro­phy’ re­ward sys­tem, and some won­der­ful, iconic cour­ses. Smash Bros is com­ing to Switch by the end of the year, and odds are it’ll snatch the crowns away from both of the truly great Smash Bros games, but for now, if you can get your hands on a copy, Melee re­mains the best start­ing point.
