I used to have a ball playing the game. In fact I’ve ever had such fun playing a fighting game, either by myself or with others. I remember spending all this time, countless hours playing with friends and time passing by without ever realizing it. I used to love all the customization options. All the crazy items and weapons, the large levels you could run around in, the quality and sturdy feeling in how the game was made. There was just something about it, it felt really solid and well built, however Nintendo manages to achieve this on comparison to other game developers I don’t know. I loved all the wacky characters and variety in how they moved and differed in playing style. I loved how over the top it was.
Now, I enjoy Ultimate a lot, but sometimes I feel irked by it. I feel annoyed sometimes with the camera, like it pulls back way too much, the levels a lot of them are kind of predictable or feel not as big anymore or all the same. All the items, they feel too chaotic at times, and just like random nonesense. The levels are way too garish feeling at times and colourful or ‘kiddie’ feeling.
It just doesn’t have the same splendour for some reason anymore. I can think seem to enjoy it the same way, it’s like tis either too serious or competitive but then it’s harder to get into playing it more care-free like. I just find it more serious, and I notice shortcoming or flaw s or easily.
Before I remember being enthralled jumping around in the Metroid levels and trying to avoid the lava and feeling really giddy when I landed on a platform and avoided it while trying to cautiously attack my friend on the other platform, or running around trying to escape the lava.
