"as well as 2-to-6 player multiplayer with support for hotseat play (i.e. you and your friends playing together in the same room, Super Smash Brothers style)."

That's more or less a lie. Smash Brothers is NOT hotseat, and hotseat is NOT Smash Brothers.

While grammatically the sentence is sound, the end result is that people misinterpret it as how you read it. What is meant is that 2-6 player multiplayer support is akin to the SSB style, which is quantified by the "you and your friends..together in the same room" statement.

I still say it's a blatant misstatement. They could have picked any game, but they deliberately chose one of the single most popular single-screen multiplayer games of all time. One that's also frantic.

There are a million other ways to phrase that without deliberately misleading people. Choose a better game. Describe what happens. Anything.
