Is it as deep as Super Smash?

Do you see All-Stars tournaments in the future? Tier lists? Or is it about as deep as Mario Kart?

Mario Kart is pretty deep crap brah.

It seems okay, but it feels a bit exploitable to me.

it's as deep as the ocean.

There are already plenty of tier lists. It's arguably deeper due to the fully-fledged combo mechanics, though not to the level of SF or Tekken.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

I think it's deeper than Smash and completely viable at the competitive level, but I worry that between its lower sales numbers compared to bigger games like Smash, and the complete disrespect the game gets from the hardcore fighting game community, that it's going to be mainly a fringe game at the tournament level, if it ever really achieves that status at all.

It feels as if although there is a pretty good combo system in the game, it doesn't seem fair whenever anyone (including myself) combos into a super that will kill no matter what. That's pretty much my only complaint.

Yea sure it will be harder to score, but it's not so much a mind game if you get hit by a normal attack that's much harder to see coming and in the end get killed without any way out of it. Even if you know how they can start the combo, doesn't mean you can dodge every single one of those attempts.

Sounds good. I like these kind of games, but grow tired of them quick if there's little depth to the gameplay. I'll check it out, see if it's fun.

Being a Smash fan, I never found it particularly deep at all. Since those days i have played more competitive fighters like mvc3, MK, and SF, and now looking back at the Smash series I find it even less deep than I used to think.

I don't think it's competitive material.

But then, I don't think Smash is either, so seeing folks rage at pratfalling in Brawl warmed my heart. ;D
Oh no, there goes Toh-kee-yoh!
