This game throws together some of the most famous characters from over the years and lets you battle with them. That in itself should be a good reason to buy it. If not, then the hundreds of unlockables and challenges should help change your mind. Speaking from someone who hasn't played many fighting/brawling games, this is pretty easy to pick up and get the hang of. It helps that the characters are quite varied in their play-style so there's one for everybody!
