Its got my vote on Best game of 2008. This was sooooooo worth the wait. It was above all my expectations. The final smashes are sooooo sick!! It is awesome that they put Sonic and Snake in the game. That means there is gonna be awesome combinations of characters in the future. Totally awesome game and sooooo worth the money. If you don't have it run (don't walk) to the nearest game store and buy it before it completely sells out.
Heres a hint. To unlock Wolf and Toon Link(Windwaker version) you have to beat Subspace Emissary first. :-)
In my opinion, this is the reason you bought a Wii. Well, OK, there are other good games such as Zelda, Metroid and Mario, but this is them all in one convenient package! The graphics are some of the best on the Wii, and they are really brought out by the many awesome cinematics in the campaign. Yes folks, there is a campaign just in case you don't know. It is loaded with cinematics that are great. Then, there's your regular classic mode, which is always fun for unlockables and if you need another thing to do. Also, dont forget the many challenges, competitions, and training you can do. This is one of the major differences from other Super Smash games... It has very good one player. Multiplayer is awesome as usual, with even more such as co-op and online play. Online play is good, and can be a bit laggy. It clears up a few seconds after the game begins(most of the time), unless you're stuck with someone in Japan(no offense-were just an ocean away, not directed at the people). Now, some people have said things such as- there is no motion sensing or no moves have changed. Well, I personally think it's good there's no motion sensing. Don't think I'm crazy! It means nobody will get mad and chuck their Wiimote at the TV when they lose due to not swinging hard enough, and people wont swing their gamecube controller, disconnect the wire, and screw up every bodies experience. Also, I think there's enough new characters to make up for no new moves(but there are the Final Smashes), and people might get mad for getting rid of some moves. It met my expectations! WITHOUT A DOUBT WORTH THE RENT AND/OR BUY!
