Super Mario 64 User Reviews

7.8

yeah, this was definitely the first of its kind

Summary:

Over the years, Super Mario 64 has stood the test of time through its excellent level designs and some slick design choices. They helped going through these levels in a very intuitive manner, one where you weren’t just running around like a headless chicken. These give it an edge where the camera and some of Mario’s control quirks have aged more like Madonna – wasn’t even all that and a bag of chips back in 1996 and has only gotten worse in 2015.

In general, controlling Mario is easy enough, even if you don’t *bleep* around in the courtyard when you first play this to get used to how Mario ...

An Iconic Title that Sets the Bar for Adventure Games

The good:

Lengthy, detailed 3D world that result in hours of game play
The use of Power Ups
Just the right amount of difficulty
Audio and Visuals are both impressive

The bad:

Terrible camera controls

Summary:

The test of time has dismantled the glory days of many systems, studios, and games alike. With next generation technology and a wide array of options, those games that cemented our childhood are pushed further back almost unintentionally, to the point of where you may question why you would play that dusty cartridge on the shelf in the first place. Food, music, and favorite sports are all victims to a change of preference through age, and video games are no exception either. I’ll be the first to admit that I enjoyed the less than impressive Tonic Trouble But hey, this is a common occurrenc...

Super Mario 64 review

The good:

- One of the greatest Mario games of all time
- Fan favourite
- Great controls
- Fun to play
- Loads of replay value

The bad:

- Can get a little frustrating due to Mario sometimes going where you don't want him to.

Summary:

Super Mario 64. One of the humblest and most recognized of the Mario games. While the 2D Mario games may be easier to control, the 3D Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64 gave fanboys, collectors and general gamers a massive taste of what was to be.

The game basically features the same story as most Super Mario games. Bowser has taken the princess, and you have to save her some way or another.
But instead of bashing blocks with his head and fist, Mario is now in 3D.

The controls of this game need to be learned, but can be learned extremely easily.

Hey Mario, since when did you get so fat?

The good:

Gameplay translates well from 2D to 3D with some awesome jumping physics, controls (for the most part) work very well taking advantage of the analog stick, graphics look good, soundtrack is addicting and catchy and, while simple, the storyline works well.

The bad:

Camera angles and controls at times are very, very aggravating. Game also gets rather tedious at times.

Summary:

Released in 1996 by Nintendo, Super Mario 64 was the headlining act for the Nintendo 64. A new console demands a tech-demo, but screw a demo, let's just make a whole game to truly test the capabilities of a new 64-bit console! To their amazement, Super Mario 64 was (and still is to this day) a roaring success, and Mario is, once again, a real driving force and a standard setter for games to come. Not since Super Mario Brothers for the NES, has the Italian plumber felt soo important to gaming. I mean... yeah, he had some help from newcomer Crash Bandicoot, but Mario really influenced the 3D ...

It's a 120 Star Classic

Summary:

Mention the word 'Nintendo' and almost certainly people will think of Mario. That surprisingly agile plumber has been the number one icon for the gaming giant for a very long time, so it comes as no surprise that he should star in a launch title for the console. Super Mario 64 is a pretty special title though, because in addition to launching their console it also marks the first time Mario steps into the 3D world.

From the moment I took control I couldn't help but feel how well the system works. Mario responds very well to the analogue input, allowing for fluid and accurate movement in his ...

Super Mario 64

The good:

+ Amazing visuals
+ Almost flawless control system
+ Cool power ups
+ Many levels
+ 120 stars to collect
+ Funny title screen
+ Fun ways to get stars

The bad:

- Bosses are so easy it's funny
- Occasional control faults
- The camera. Uggh.
- Can be frustratingly difficult

Summary:

Super Mario 64 is considered to be not only one of the best N64 games but one of the best games of all time. All of its reivews were positive and very high. Since 1997 Super Mario 64 has sold around 12 million copies and around 5-6 million on the Wii's Virtual Console. It was also so popular it was a remake on the DS (Super Mario 64 DS) which has sold 5 million around the globe. Honestly, and oddly, I prefer Super Mario Sunshine, but this is a fantastic game. If you don't own this on the Wii or anything else, you are officially bonkerz.
