Super Smash Bros. PHAILURE, known in Japan as Dairantou Smash Brothers X 2: Tabuu Strikes Back (大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズX2タブーの逆襲, Dairantō Sumasshu Burazāzu Ekkusu Tsū: Tabuu no Gyakushū), often shortened to SSBP or FAILURE, is the second installment in the Super Smash Bros. Brawl sub-series published by Nintendo. It is well known for its balanced characters, possible story mode, not crashing when selecting Brawl Sonic. Due to that third reason, it was rated 9/10 by Nintendo Power Magazine, 8.9/10 by IGN and of course, 7.6/10 by GameFAQs. It was made by Masahiro Sakurai who's a member of the Nintendo Gang, along with A mysterious shady guy. Its rival is Super Nintendo Bros. Brawl which was made by everyone in the Nintendo Gang except Sakurai.
