Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl launched one week in the past and I'm curious what everybody right here thinks of it now that the sport is out and previous all of the construct up. In case you don't know, Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl is a platform fighter impressed by Tremendous Smash Bros. Melee utilizing Nickelodeon characters versus Nintendo characters. It options the quick and fluid fight from Melee, but additionally provides just a few twists to the mechanics that makes it distinctive sufficient to name a unique recreation.
Personally talking, I feel this recreation is well one of the best platform fighter I've performed in case you can look previous the tasteless presentation. The preventing is insanely quick, but additionally characters are so responsive that I by no means actually lose observe of what's occurring and it's very straightforward for me to get into my zone when taking part in this recreation. This additionally means combos really feel much less inflexible and extra improvisational since most strikes may be adopted up by one other assault nearly instantly. Motion is tremendous crisp and the devs took onerous to study mechanics like wavedashing and made them very straightforward and accesible. Every character feels very completely different from one another and, apart from just a few letdowns, the solid feels comparatively balanced to this point. There are some points with infinites and characters like Aang undoubtedly really feel like they will simply spam the identical assault again and again, however the devs have already communicated that these points can be patched.
Constructing as much as this recreation, lots of people have been evaluating this to Smash Bros., which is a given since this recreation is closely impressed by the sequence. I performed lots of Final when that got here out, and whereas this recreation lacks the aptitude and presentation that Final has I earnestly imagine this recreation is miles forward of Final when it comes to gameplay. Final can really feel sluggish to play at occasions and it appears like lots of the characters have a really singular gameplan and combo setup versus the looser mechanics right here in All-Stars. I struggled to get constant combos in Final whereas on this recreation, it feels extremely pure. I feel this recreation simply beats Final within the gameplay division in case you are strictly searching for a platform fighter that's extra centered on aggressive play. That's to not point out the rollback netcode that’s leagues forward of the netcode Nintendo is utilizing for Smash.
What do you guys assume to this point?
