Against all odds, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is currently benefiting from a bona fide hype machine. That’s probably because, on top of a deep cast of lovable Nickelodeon characters, the game actually looks pretty darn fluid and fun to play. Many gamers are rightfully hesitant as to whether or not the game will actually be worthwhile because, you know, licensed games and all, but a steady, cautious optimism has certainly taken hold on many players. Where do you fall? Are you excited for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl? Do you think it has any chance of finding its footing and establishing a solid enough community to persist among other fighting games?
While I think it would be crazy to assert that the game has any chance of competing with Super Smash Bros. on a quality basis, I still think that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl will be pretty good. The developer, GameMill, is no slouch, and the gameplay we’ve seen so far definitely has the look as a fast and smooth multiplayer experience with all sorts of iconic characters and stages. I don’t think I could possibly expect much more than that out of the game, especially given the industry’s long history of subpar licensed Super Smash Bros. clones.
