Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a fighting game and the third game in the Super Smash Bros. series. Players play as a mash-up of Nintendo characters and attempt to knock their opponents off the screen.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the Wii's contribution to the SSB series. Unlike other fighting games, the goal is to knock the opponent off the screen, not deplete their health bar. Brawl builds on many facets of the previous two games by adding more characters, more stages, more collectables, and even a story mode called The Subspace Emissary. While the game is certainly a commercial success, the game has still developed an extensive modding community comparable to some PC games.
