Play Super Smash Bros. Brawl Like It Was Melee Now

Project M, the Super Smash Bros. Brawl hack that injects more of what you loved about Super Smash Bros. Melee into its Wii sequel, has been released in demo form. This is your opportunity to answer the question "Why not just play Melee?"

The demo release of Project M packs in just 14 of the planned 40+ characters and just some of the stages the mod will support—which includes memorable environments from the GameCube and Nintendo 64 entries in the Smash Bros. series.

Interested parties can head to the official Project M site to see what's involved and what it takes to play the mod on your legit copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Weren't the majority of characters frowned upon because they were "OP" and all but one level were removed from play because most people could "block cancel push" others off the map?

      Lol at "block cancel push", what the hell is that? The game is well balanced, no one is "OP" and there are several stages that are played on.

    The Smash Bros community really has a different mentality to every other fighting game community out there.

    Based on the previews I've watched, Marvel vs Capcom 3 is looking to be a lot more like Tatsunoko vs Capcom than MvC2. If the Marvel community was anything like the Smash Bros community, they'd be bitching and moaning that they aren't getting the same game with new characters and then come out with something like this.

    Instead they're embracing the changes and those that don't want to are simply going to continue playing MvC2 instead.

      ROFL! I'm also part of the 'Marvel Community' and I've honestly never seen such a bitch fest in all my life! The game isn't even out yet and already there are quite a number of MvC2 fans getting their panties in a knot because it LOOKS similar to TvC.

      At least the Smash Bros. Melee community is doing something about it.

        MVC2 was great, but no game will ever be as good as a good comic.

        You see, Trjn, the Smash commmunity has a different mentality because they can afford to have a different mentality. When Brawl came out, there was a definite split in the community. A few players played both Brawl and Melee, but the majority picked a side and stuck with it. Some embraced the changes, while others stuck with the old game.

        But a few people weren't happy with that, and as the Wii modding scene flourished, those few people decided to take a third option: hack the crap out of Brawl. They weren't happy with Brawl, and they wanted more than just Melee, so they took the best of the latter (new characters, new stages, new items, and 300+ music tracks) and of the former (tight, technical gameplay) and smashed them together while adding their own techniques and fixing game balance.

    I'm really excited about this!

    Why not just play Melee?

    Well, my mates and I do! We were all extremely disappointed when Brawl was released because it became so clumsy and skill-less. It's not that it didn't have any good points, it just lost all the charm and fluidity that the previous game had, so we just put Brawl to one side. Looking at the goals that Project M has to achieve, it seems that we weren't the only ones to share this opinion.

    So hopefully this will give all the more hardcore Smash Bros. fans a reason to brush the dust off their copies of Brawl and play a 'true' sequel to Melee!

      its a old relpy buut, you CAAAN go to special brawl and make to where brawl is harder, and MK (ruler of ssbb) would be similar to ssbm fox.
