IGN Reiview on Smash Bros & Another Question

Does anybody know what the review was on Smash Bros. Melee for the Cube from IGN? I really don't feel like paying the money. If anybody has the premium subscription and is generous to post the stuff, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Second question....is your Wal-Mart going to stock their Melee games at midnight on Saturday?

P.S. - I can't wait until this Sunday!

I won't post the whole thing, but:

Presentation - 10.0
All the retro Nintendo franchises wrapped into one, neat, feature-filled package. Amazing.

Graphics - 8.0
It's fast and furious, but still has some so-so background work. That said, most of the up-close visuals are great, but past that everything is average.

Sound - 10.0
Take all of your favorite Nintendo themes and orchestrate them to perfection. This is one of the best soundtracks in history, despite being based on pre-composed themes.

Gameplay - 9.0
An expansive single-player mode and a deep multiplayer mode make SSB Melee hard to put down.

Lasting Appeal - 10.0
Nearly 300 beautifully rendered trophies to collect, a stellar multiplayer mode, and tons of characters, stages, and options. It couldn't get much better than this.

OVERALL SCORE (not an average) - 9.6

This seems to be the killer app for the GC and not Rogue Leader, but that's just my opinion.

That may be the reason why Nintendo didn't release it at launch. Their already strong line-up bolstered initial console sales, and SSB:M is sure to sell a bunch more before X-Mas.

Wow that's a great review. If Pikmin does as good of numbers, I think I'll end up getting a GCN for Xmas.

Perhaps. It's a common strategy.

Now that's the spirit!
Forget about the Nintendo or Microsoft badges on the systems and just play the games.

Thank you very much Aghama. Now you've got me even more psyched out for the game. Man, I really hope Wal-Mart stocks it at midnight.
