METACRITIC: 93
OPENCRITIC: 94

Destructoid: 9.5/10
EGM: 9.5/10
GameXplain: Liked-A-Lot
GameSpot: 9/10
Ultimate is a comprehensive, considered, and charming package that refines and builds on an already strong and enduring fighting system.
GamesRadar+: 4.5/5
IGN: 9.4/10

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Smash Bros. done right, and done bigger than ever before.
JeuxVideo: 19/20
Kotaku: Very Positive
It’s difficult to imagine the type of gamer for whom Smash Ultimate has no appeal. This is a big game, and with the fat skimmed off, a remarkable one. Its core attraction—fighting on a platform—is as polished and brilliant and sharp as ever, its fighters the most unique and deep.
Metro: 9/10
Easily the best Smash Bros. ever made, with a fantastic new story campaign and a near infinite range of characters and options for multiplayer.
Nintendo Insider: 10/10
Nintendo Life:
(Review in Progress)
The Absolute Pinnacle Of Nintendo's Fighting Series
Polygon: Very Positive
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s gameplay is so snappy and fluid, its characters so rewarding in their variety, that it feels destined to dominate living rooms once again
Twinfinite: 5/5

Fandom's 5/5 review

"There are no two ways about it: this is one of the most impressive games on the Nintendo Switch and represents some of the best value for money we’ve seen in video games in years, whether you’re into single player or multiplayer. Buy this game, you will not regret it."

9/10 tho

THE GOOD

Refined fighting system remains both accessible and complex Incredibly large and diverse character roster

Numerous quality-of-life improvements, both technical and superficial

Single-player content is plentiful and engaging

A number of entertaining multiplayer modes

Immense library of iconic video game music

Packed with loving homages and fan service

Everyone is here

THE BAD

Difficult to follow the action in Switch's handheld mode

Character unlocking is initially bothersome

My expectations is its a 10/10 if ure a biased Nintendo fanboy. 8,5 if ure not. I expect it to land in 9.0-9.3 territory like Mario Kart 8.

Good stuff. Those cons don’t bother me at all.
