Super Smash Bros. Brawl adds a well-known item from the franchise to its list : the hammer, now with a layer of gold and on a pedestal. It sends rivals flying great distances upon impact. A little new touch is if you rapidly tap a button, you will be able to float in midair. Beware though, as the hammer can malfuction and lose its head!

was there a hammer like this in melee where it just start making your character go back and forth and destroy freakin everything that it touched? but I guess they have given you more control over this one and that jumping thing is a neat little addition. I wonder if the hammer from the last game will still be in this one.

I never really liked the hammer. If you played poorly then you would just jump off the edge and die. If your opponents were competent then they would just avoid you till you lost the hammer. The hover aspect is neat but I would rather have the ability to throw the hammer.

Yes

About the game

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
