Instant classic. The online play for Wii U is free, the gameplay is simple and yet complex as you play others online you will be up for a good challenge while choosing from a great array of characters and awesome stages and the best songs.
The only thing I wish it had would be a 1 player story mode.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Bought Wii U just for this game
I purchased a Wii U Deluxe just because Smash bros was coming out. I then got to thinking if I wanted the game in digital or physical format.
Ultimately I ended up going digital. The reason I went digital is because I want to be able to play smash without needing to change discs, and the fact that I don't have time to waste going to the store to buy a physical copy.
Process is easy since you buy online, get emailed an activation code, go into the estore on your wii u, insert code and begin downloading the game. The total download time for me was about 2 1/2 hours (no biggie had it download while I slept) but that can vary depending on your internet speed (I supposedly have time warner at 25 Mbps). The biggest draw back to downloading the game is that it is a big download. For me it was 11.6GB, combined with the 5GB the system already takes up, I am now left with 13GB for save data. For me the space is not a big deal because I only plan on having Smash Bros as a digital download. If you fear you will be running out of hard drive space, then just hook up an external hard drive to your Wii U and you will be good to go.
I am going to see how I like the digital download vs the physical copy. I think I will enjoy not having to get up on those cold days to change the disc to play smash.
PROS for Digital Download:
Don't need to go to the store
No need to worry about scratching the disc (kids)
Don't need to get up to change games
When I switch consoles my digital content will still be there
No paper manuals
No box with artwork
Cannot play on another system unless you tell nintendo you want to activate your account on another Wii
Friends cannot borrow the game (I would not let my friends borrow this game so not an issue for me)
Cannot resale a digital copy
