How is the gameplay? Brawl fans enjoying it?

It's probably been asked hundreds of times but how alike is it? I am a huge brawl fan and am buying a ps3 solely due to this. I just wanted to know how it stacks up. I've seen hours of gameplay vids but would like to get your opinions on the gameplay gamefaqs.

This game is similar in concept only. The fighting system is totally different and, in my opinion, much more strategic.

Gameplay is great. I've played hundreds of hours of Brawl and I think this is awesome.

I played the hell out of Brawl, and really enjoyed the beta for this game when it came out. It's definitely a day one buy for me. It won't disappoint you.

The gameplay is amazing but if you get it expecting it to play like Smash Bros you are going to be disappointed.

It plays completely different, but in a good way. It is extremely fun once you learn how to play it.

This game is one reason I bought the PS3 as well. I come from a competitive Brawl background.

In some ways the gameplay is worse than brawl, in other ways it's better.

Cons

-Less fluid
-no fast falling, slower movement speeds
-no sweetspots or meaties as far as I know

Pros

-no tripping
-more true combo potential
-much more balanced
-Much better online

I can go into more detail if you want.

But yes, if you like Brawl, you should love this game. It's different enough to feel like a different game but also shares many similar mechanics. If you're a fan of the platform fighter genre you can't go wrong here.

Thanks for the responses! Also, how is the combo system? It's what I'm most intrigued about.
