The game doesn't really have it's own storyline, however I heard a very interesting and unique one from someone, however I don't know if it's real. It goes like this:
Basially there is a little boy who has a fond opinion of the Nintendo company. He has a lot of stuffed/action figures of the Nintendo heros (he's a fan of the good guys, not the bad guys). Like any little boy he likes to make his toys fight. So he puts on his Mario glove and makes them fight each other.
However eventually after fighting endlessly the toys decide to fight back. Whether it be Mario, Donkey Kong, Samus Aran or Pikachu, each Nintendo hero has reallt the same plot this way. But a good thing abouit the game is that it gives you information on the character's background. I wouldn't have known who Captain Falcon, Samus Aran or ness were if it wasn't for this little feature.
The gameplay is a unique style of fighting game. Instead of having a little health bar at the top, and when you lose it all you die, there is a percentage. This percentage shows the damage you recieve. The higher it is, the more likely you are to be knocked away off the stage (which is how you lose). The last Nintendian left on the stage wins. Of course you can have extra lives in which you a carried back to the main entrance point of the stage to try again. You have a quick glance of invincibility just after you return (a handy hint there). Occasionly weapons will pop out of anywhere. Some being a simple as a fan or a baseball bat. Some being some of the most recognizable symbols of the gaming industry Donkey Kong's barrels, Mario's mallet, the invincibility star). With each character having their own special move, the game is never dull.
The graphics are pretty simple, but captivate the characters. The one I think they got the most wrong is Donkey Kong (only Rare made him look perfect), but that's pretty picky. The game itself is like a 3D platform fighter. This goes well with the Nintendo-y feel.
The sound is great. They captivate the character's voice perfectly. Samus sounds like an android witha screw lose, but I guess that can be expected (I think she's the only playable character that doesn't speak in the game). I like the way the crowd cheers you on if you knock someone flying after you've absorbed a lot of damage. The narrator's voice sounds pretty cool too.
The replay value is good. Simply because it's a fighter. You just put it in and play multiplayer when you want.
I think it made a great game & original game, and with Melee (the sequel) on GCN, I think there will be one for every gaming generation. All the characters stay whilst the newly made Nintendo characters join the old ones for battle of the Nintendo universe. I recommend you play SSB if you haven't already. You may find it more entertaining than a lot the the third gen. games you have now.
-Original story ideas
-Original fighting style
-Up to four players
-Maybe an official storyline to go with the game
-Maybe better graphics
