Did we miss something on diversity?

super fun!

Such a fun game! As a family we really enjoy playing it together. Lots of different characters to get and play with. 8+ because some characters have revealing clothing- not too big of a deal, but worth mentioning (so annoying that game developers even add that...). Overall lots of fun!! Definitely recommend it!

Not the whole game unless you wanna spend another 60 dollars

You'd don't get the full from just buying the game alone, if you want the dlc characters, which just happen to be use by the best player in the world you have to spend about another 60 dollars to get, you basically have to buy another game to play this game. story is basic, nobody really plays the game for the story so I guess thats okay. luckily the game does have a big cast and looks nice, thats mostly it. Some of the characters are trash compare to others which can be annoying if you want to play that one only to learn that they are bottom tier. Another thing about online is that if you make a mistake and lose you life because you dodge instead of jump, you could lose 2 life's, that is completely awful, also I don't know why some characters have 0 to death combos like luigi and ice climbers. Lots of the gameplay is good, but could be better. Overall I would say that in like 10 to 15 years when the next game comes out, I'm not buying and I don't think you should either, unless they fix stuff up and don't try charge you 60 dollars for the conveniently best characters in the game .
