(4) Planet Zebes (N64)
 vs. (44) Halberd (Brawl)

1.) Between Yoshi and Ness, I like both their stages. But the hazards and interesting layout wins over Yoshi's once again symmetrical stage.

2.) Both stages are about the same but DK gets the edge out.

3.) Not much to say, was just a fan of the Metroid one here.

4.) I love both these stages but I picked Green Hill Zone for it's color and lack of awkward platforming.

5.) Final Destination... simple but elegant.

6.) I wish neither could advance at this level. But, I'd rather play on the annoying Mushroomy Kingdom than the rather boring Mario Bros.

7.) Flat Zone,... nothing against you, but Pokemon Stadium 2 just is way more interesting.

8.) The Halberd is a really slick stage. I'm a big fan.

Man oh man, I miss the Fourside stage from Melee!

Also, I'm not a huge fan of Pokemon Stadium 2, but Flat Zone 2 is a little too busy for my tastes (which makes me sad, because I love all of the G&W games it references).

I loved Brinstar Depths, though from what I hear from others, it sounds like I'm probably in the minority. And 75m vs. Green Hill Zone? Is there any way I can vote against both of them? :P

(25) Yoshi's Island (Melee/Brawl) vs. (
19) Onett (Melee/Brawl)

Not a big fan of either, but Yoshi's Island is just awkward to fight in.

(43) Yoshi's Island (Brawl)
 vs. (15) Jungle Japes (Melee/Brawl)

I like 'em both, but Jungle Japes wins mostly because it's Donkey Kong instead of Yoshi. I also like the wide, three platform layout.

(29) Brinstar Depths (Melee)
 vs. (51) Port Town Aero Dive (Brawl)

PTAD always struck me as a less fun Mute City, but Brinstar Depths never clicked with me at all.

(61) 75m (Brawl)
 vs. (58) Green Hill Zone (Brawl)

75m was out of my regular rotation pretty quickly. Green Hill Zone wasn't great but it had the greatest song in history available as BGM.

(30) Final Destination (Melee/Brawl) vs. (32) Fourside (Melee)

I really like Fourside, but you always gotta have a no-frills showdown stage.

(57) Mario Bros. (Brawl)
 vs. (37) Mushroomy Kingdom (Brawl)

Mario Bros. is probably my least favorite retro level. Mushroomy Kingdom isn't bad, as scrolling levels go.

(62) Flat Zone 2 (Brawl)
 vs. (46) Pokemon Stadium 2 (Brawl)

Flat Zone 2 was an improvement over the first, but it's still just okay. Pokemon Stadium 2 was a step down from the first, but it was still pretty solid.

(4) Planet Zebes (N64)
 vs. (44) Halberd (Brawl)
Rising lava stages, ehh. Halberd is pretty good-ish.

> I really liked the Yoshi's Island stage mainly due to its music and SNES look, but Onett, of course, is the one I have to go with. It's my favorite one!
> I didn't like this Yoshi's Island stage too much, as it felt cramped. I really liked the music choices, but that's about it. Jungle Japes with its darker look, and three spaced out platforms, made for some tensely fun matches.
> I didn't care for nearly all of the Metroid stages in the Smash games. Nearly all were junk, and their remixed tunes just as bad. However, Port Town Aero is one I loathe more, so Brinstar Depths gets my pick by default. It's probably the best one, with the best tune (of course, that's not saying much).
> 75m isn't a favorite stage of mine, but was one that provided some zany fun. Green Hill Zone was just kind of an awkward stage to play. Nice colors, but irritating landscape.

> Final Destination is boring. Fourside is an amazing stage. I mean, it has a super slippery UFO!
> The arcade Mario Bros. gets my pick here, as I can't stand moving stages.
> Flat Zone provided some manic fun, but isn't a favorite. The Pokemon Stadium 2 stage is only slightly better. Changing landscapes are fun.
> Halberd was kind of boring, but given my earlier Metroid comment, it gets my pick here. Plus, it featured the best Brawl tune... King Dedede's Theme!

Lots of stinkers in this bracket. The Mario Bros vs. Mushroomy Kingdom is one where I'd rather both lose. Jungle Japes and 75m are also ones I generally turn off.

I don't get the Green Hill Zone hate. The music is either great (Sonic 1 or Sonic 2) or so bad it's great (3D Sonic)! And the stage itself isn't great or anything but doesn't bother me.

Final Destination vs. Fourside Melee might be the hardest choice I've had yet. On the one hand Final Destination is kind of boring, but on the other hand, I have such fond memories of having an epic battle there in Melee and watching the beautiful sunrise. Had to go with it over a level that I liked but honestly hadn't crossed my mind in a long time.

8. (4) Planet Zebes (N64)
 vs. (44) Halberd (Brawl)

1. I like both of these, but I gave the edge to Onett since it has a bit more going on. Both are a bit small though.
2. Both of these are just okay, Japes has a slightly more interesting layout.
3. Port Town is another moving stage I don't like, Brinstar Depths could use a few tweaks (like grabbable ledges) but it's still an interesting idea.
4. Both of these are bland, but I remember 75m seeming a bit not as bland.

5. I know a stage like Final Destination has to exist for things like single player so I want it in the game, but still like Fourside better.
6. Mushroomy Kingdom is a prime example of Brawl's ugly graphics, but even without that it's just the first and second level of SMB1 tossed in with no thought of if it'd make a good Smash stage. The same could probably be said of Mario Bros., but at least it doesn't scroll.
7. Flat Zone 2 isn't as good as the first, so I'll go Stadium 2 even though I can't remember how it transforms.
8. Halbred was a pretty weird stage, and not in a good way. But I like all the N64 stages anyway.

(4) Planet Zebes (N64)
 vs. (44) Halberd (Brawl)

1. Yoshi's Island was pretty good with all the Mario World stuff (and the SMB3 music), but I just can't say no to the classic EarthBound stage. Onett was super-detailed and super-nostalgic, and had that awesome Pollyanna mix. Pretty fun to play on, too, although there was maybe a little too much traffic.

2. I always liked Brawl's Yoshi's Island a lot. I was thankful to finally get a non-Yoshi's Story stage (since YI is clearly the superior game). It was also pleasantly neutral without being boring and had great music.

3. Gotta go with the giant Kraid on this one. Pretty clever level concept.

4. 75m is neat conceptually, but doesn't translate to Smash well. Green Hill Zone is decent, at least when you've got one of the handful of good songs playing on it. Stay far away from Seven Rings in Hand...

5. This was hard. FD is kind of classic and is quite nice in its simplicity, but its overuse has made me a little tired of it. And on the other hand, Fourside is from EarthBound (and is a strong level in its own right). I'm only disappointed in its strange techno take on the EB Fourside music, but it still gets my vote.

6. Mario Bros. would be pretty good if the enemies didn't have ridiculously crazy knockback. I'll go with Mushroomy Kingdom; the scrolling is pesky, but I'm generally entertained in this level regardless. Lots of items and silliness, so it's fun on occasion.

7. Stadium 2, mainly for the fun Flying-type stage transformation.

8. Metroid acid stage again? Gotta go with Halberd; dynamic without being distracting, and awesome music no matter how you slice it.
