When you look at various rating sites, you will always find a large amount of negative reviews on this game. I rented it because it look interesting and there are very few good 3DS games out right now. When you start out in story you will see there are various worlds and many characters with their own fighting style. The story is nothing new but can still hold your interests through to the end. The levels feature basic side scrolling from beginning to end with enemies and obstacles you need to go through. The controls work well enough for the platforming and even the fighting (which most people hate) works pretty well, though there were times I died because the controls were not responsive enough. Going through the story is a little repetitive, though the settings do change enough to make it a small treat to wonder through your favorite character`s worlds. The only major problem I find with the game is its boss fights. While some work(like the final boss) some also are very difficult because they either trap with with overpowered moves or can just blow you away without warning. With story completed its time for the Battle mode. This is your basic 1 vs 1 all the way to 1 vs 3. The game sticks with the Easy-Medium-Hard setup. Unlocking characters in this mode is a bit harder than through story(those unlocked in story are not unlocked in Battle). You need to win X amount of game in order to unlock all characters. In battle mode you also have Local play and Download play. I love the download play option allows for 4 people to battle with only one cartridge. The only downer is there is only 4 characters to use and you cannot unlock more(battles won go towards unlocks in regular mode) Those characters are Ben Ten, Dexter, Buttercup, and one other i cannot remember... Overall the game is very solid and worth it if you have friends with 3DS`s or just need a good game while you wait for Smash Bros to come out(it was announced for 3DS & Wii U)

When I seen this game for the first time, I thought the game play was going to be similar than Super Smash Bros series and man, I was wrong. The graphics in this game are okay for a 3DS game, somehow the characters and the stages have that same generic 3d graphics that you see in a PS2 game and the camera angles are on point either. Every time use a character, the camera focuses on mine but never on the opponent.
