  3. Why is there more complaining from Ultimate than there was from Smash 4?

I'm seeing more complaints about Ultimate than I did Smash 4. There were a lot of Smash 4 defenders. I disliked Smash 4, reasons being it was on a terrible console, the initial newcomers sucked, the website overhyped returning elements, and it was just kinda "better brawl".

Ultimate is even less original (since it's obviously Smash 4 upgraded), but there's just too many good improvements to hate on it. Ridley? K. Rool? Castlevania? All veterans? Fast? Good enough for me.

Smash U got tons of hate, the single player, the 6 cuts, Wii Fit Trainer and Dark Pit, etc

Because smash 4 was a return to form, kinda after the tragedy that was brawl. This is less of a full on upgrade.

IMO this is probably the best smash tho

The gap between Brawl and Smash 4 was considerably longer than the gap between Smash 4 and Ultimate, especially since 4 had DLC prolonging it's lifespan.

People were more forgiving with 4 because they were just relieved to finally have a new Smash at all. With Ultimate, it doesn't feel like there was much of a gap at all, so people are more critical.

Because Sakurai can't please everyone and not everyone is worth pleasing.

Because Ultimate has worse single player and worse online, the two areas people thought 4 needed the most improvements in.

Don't forget. Always, somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember her, you are not alone.

Ultimate has the best Single player in any Smash game so far. Classic mode is actually unique and more interesting for the characters and World of Light’s gameplay is way better than Subspace Emissary.

Online has always been a problem for Smash, but it’s slowly getting better.
