Press Start Australia – 100
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is ultimate in every sense of the word. World of Light is fantastic, Challenge Mode is satisfying and there’s so much love and detail in absolutely everything in the game… Whilst having 60+ characters and 100+ stages sounds overwhelming, it’s the perfect celebration of everything Nintendo and will be hard to top going forward.
TheSixthAxis – 100
Smash Bros. has often felt a bit like it was trying to do too much and while it has always been a fun series, the disparity between the fighting game and the party game didn’t always mesh well. Ultimate is the perfect fusion of the two styles. There are countless additions to it as a fighting game to keep the competitive players happy, but the new items and features make the party game the most exciting it could be. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels like one of the best written love letters to gaming that there has ever been, the care and attention given to each of the games represented is incredible. This is quite simply a must-play game, one that will keep you going for hundreds of hours with its single player alone, and with multiplayer that will keep you going for thousands.
Twinfinite – 100
Every aspect of the game feels fine-tuned and thought out, and the sheer amount of changes and diversity of content is simply staggering. This is the most ambitious and all-inclusive Super Smash Bros entry, and one of the very best games Nintendo’s little system has gotten yet.
Destructoid – 95
Despite that a lot of the old content isn’t as hard-hitting seeing it the second, third, fourth or even fifth time around, the fact that it’s all here, and in a manageable file size, is more than enough.
