Brawl has iconic characters that everyone loves and its only real limitation is the platform it is on.
The SSB Franchise simply draws from a pull of more memorable characters than the the playstation franchise can hope to.
brawl has link,mario,pokemon and maybe donkey kong but to say that chars like marth,olimar and ness are iconic is pure ignorance dude. Also stay on topic we are talking about the gameplay, not about the chars
That's not what the topic is asking.
In terms of roster, Brawl has Zelda Series, Star Fox Series, Pokemon Series, Kirby Series, Fire Emblem Series, and Sonic. You get to beat people up with your favorite characters. This is a good thing. If you want to compare them to the characters in Playstation series, many of which I like, but I wouldn't know about if I didn't have a playstation 3, you're going to have a bad time.
Not only that,but as a party game, the SSB series is simply in a class of its own. It's relative worth is based on who it is meant to appeal to. And if Brawl was on a better system with better online support, it would still be going hella strong. Brawl is a wickedly good game. The fighting system may not be as "refined" as Melee's but it has definitely stood the test of time, and on many levels, I like it more. It has casual appeal and high level appeal.
thats why is hard to take you seriously, by the time you have a good argument i will have a perfect english grammar -Anema1968
True that. It still irks me that Nintendo delayed Brawl's release for a year, an entire year, just to rewrite some of the engine to support online play, and they botch it up. (Only to watch Ubisoft fix those problems with TMNT Smashup!)
It was rage-inducing to be competitive with all the hiccups, and this is coming from a pretty patient guy, so I continued fighting bots set to "Nasty" in multiplayer. To be honest, I don't think Brawl and this game can be compared to each other, but as far as online multiplayer goes, Sony's got it, and Nintendon't. The next iteration of Smash Bros may change that, but in the meantime, it's still a fair comparison.
