descriptionWelcome to a brawl for the ages, where anything can happen, anyone can show up and all bets are off.
In multiplayer games, characters from all Nintendo universes meet up in Nintendo locales to duke it out. In the solo mode called "The Subspace Emissary," the world of Smash Bros. is invaded by an entity called the Ancient Minister and his army of creatures, called "The Primid." Normally, characters come alive in the world of Smash Bros. to do battle, then turn back into trophies when defeated. However, the Ancient Minister starts turning characters into trophies to harness their power, then detonates bombs that suck pieces of the world back into his realm of Subspace. Eventually, all the characters must work together to defeat the invading creatures from Subspace - this is accomplished by playing through side-scrolling levels.

As traditional Super SMash Games, you are supposed to send opponents flying off the stages, making the game unique and fun.
The additional 3rd party characters, Snake and SOnic were the biggest surprises for me, and made me happy. And they aren't even DLC characters like most modern games.
The downside are the "Tripping" feature, a chance to get you off balance. It's not even fun, just annoying.
This game is a bit slower than the previous game, Melee, making it easier to play.
Overall, a good game. If you can look away from the tripping.
This is one of my greatest intended games! Finally a competition between the multiple mascots of the Nintendo game universe, I've been wanting this one with the top possible characters and to mainly put the hurt upon the Pokemon Trainer character Satoshi-kun, with LINK - A True Nintendo Hero and/or.. Uhm... Mascot, if you will. But it would be far more gratifying to pummel him with Zelda-hime or even Peach-hime! Don't get me wrong, I like the Pokemon games and the anime, but.. Anyway, great fighter!!
Dairantou Smash Brothers X definitely is no comparison to the superior Dairantou Smash Brothers DX for Gamecube. When I first got this game in the United States titled Super Smash Brothers Brawl, I was so excited, but quickly disappointed due to many things. To start with, characters were removed, the stage builder was very limited, the music remixes were pretty bad (out of 250 songs, I like 20 of them at most), and the difficulty was just unnecessary.
To be fair, this game is really quite good, but if you worshiped Super Smash Brother Melee on Gamecube, you will be left very disappointed. This game is highly recommended to those first starting out in the Smash Brothers series, or just not have yet played Super Smash Brothers Melee. With all this said, the only fair way I can review this game (since it can go either way), I will just be very direct using a like / dislike system.
-Sonic The Hedgehog (finally)
-In depth story mode (Sub-space Emissary)
-Rayquaza from Pokemon is a boss
-Being able to use the Gamecube controller (compatibles are Classic Controller, Wii-Chuck, Wii-mote, and Gamecube)
-Return of HYRULE TEMPLE stage
-Luigi recieves upgrade
-Kirby gets slight upgrade
-Addition of Meta Knight
-Challenge system even though sometimes annoying
-Graphics are spectacular
-You can do coop mode in every mode of the game (2-players in homerun contest, event match, adventure, target test, everything)
-ROB the robot enters the fight
-Removal of Roy
-Removal of Mewtwo
-Removal of Pichu
-Removal of Dr. Mario
-Removal of Young Link
-Severe change of Falco
-Severe downgrade / change of Ganondorf
-Severe downgrade of Princess Peach
-Graphic change of Ganondorf
-Graphic change of Fox
-Graphic change of Falco
-Change in Mario's Down+B move
-Addition of Pikmin & Olimar
-Addition of Lucario (wouldn't mind it if he did not replace Mewtwo)
-Addition of Snake (not a Nintendo character!!!!)
-Krystal from Star Fox did not make the cut
-Mega Man did not make the cut
-Dixie Kong did not make the cut
-Shadow The Hedgehog did not make the cut (not even a different costume)
-Zero Suit Samus and Samus not being seperate characters
-Combining Lizardon, Zenigame, and Fushigisou (Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur)
-The difficulty is super-biased against the player
-The computers never fight each other, they always fight players
-1 hit KO moves are so cheap (usually Smash Balls)
-Only 5 Target Smash stages instead of everyone having their own
-Online gameplay feels like 1 second delays with every command
-Unlocking game music
-Many aspects of the game are way too random
-Fire Emblem Castle is 3 stages that transform one after the other instead of picking different levels
-Having Mushroomy Kingdom stage randomly be the underground stage 2 or above ground stage 1
-Almost every single stage moves
-Trophy table game
-Claiming to remove clone characters where Lucas (a new comer) is nothing more than a better version of Ness
-Name entry system is like a phone (very bad idea)
-Does not read SDHC cards
-Battling Ridley from Metroid as 2 bosses
-Porky from Earthbound / Mother as a boss
-Marx from Kirby should have been a boss, but wasn't
-Randomly being forced to fight Crazy Hand in Classic mode (there is no pattern wahtsoever)
-Assist trophies are the same thing as Pokeballs
-Goldeen is still the most common Pokemon you get from Pokeballs
-Computer players beat you up, then walk away while you chase and try to attack them
These are just some things I wanted to point out. I have commonly wanted to ship this game back to Nintendo and say try again because of all the things that I really felt they messed up on. But to be fair, it is a good fighting game and will take you at least 20 hours of gameplay to beat everything except getting all the challenges. So the bottom line is, Dairantou Smash Brothers X is an OK game, but is definitely no comparison for Dairantou Smash Brothers DX for Gamecube.
No Japanese needed to play this game, it's easy to figure it out.
Very rare of "Dairantou Smash Brothers X (J)" for Wii, you must have it~! ^^"
Very good game with a funny scenario for the single game and really amazing to play 2 or 4.
