This is gaming perfection. Superb level designs and a beautifully colorful art pallet make this game an extremely charming N64 masterpiece. Great controls (with a few minor friction problems) mixed with impressive visuals for it's time are why this is one of the greatest pieces of any media ever. If only there were more levels... Anyway, a must buy X 10 for anyone and their grandmothers. If you own a Wii, you need to download this game. -Scott L. (5 out of 5)



jumpman64 commented on Yoshi's Story:

I personally didn't enjoy this game. Levels are VERY repetetive and the game is just overall inferior to it's predecessor, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. I personally wasn't a fan of this game's "fruit" system, which was altered from the original game. It also lacks the feel that SMW2 had and plays to much like an action game and not enough like a platformer. Of course, many disagree with me and adore this game, and it's easy to see why; the art style of this title and the all of the Yoshi games remains as one of my favorites, and those Yoshis are all so darn cute. Overall, this is a charming game that really isn't worth $10. I would suggest waiting for Yoshi's Island for the SNES, a true platforming masterpiece. -Scott L. (2 out of 5)



jumpman64 commented on Mario Kart 64:

Mario Kart 64 is probably my favorite racing game. Ever. Despite what Damo said, this game is an improvement in every possible way over Super Mario Kart, minus perhaps in track design. At the time of MK 64's release, the SNES-sprite-like character models were sloppy, but bearable. Now, with Wii's anti-aliasing technology (which usualy improves a game's visuals), Mario and friends look grainy and rough. Plus, the ability to save and race ghosts to try and out do you and your friends' best times (a vital part of Mario Kart 64) has been stripped from the VC version of MK 64. The bottom line: Mario Kart 64 for the N64 gets a 5 out of 5 stars easily. The VC version, however, gets a 4 out of 5. Still, if you are one of those people who loves playing games with friends and family, this is a must have. However, if you typically play games alone and are looking for a depthful racer to play in single player mode, go download F-Zero X. Still, at $10, MK 64 is more than a bargain or a steal; it's a robbery. -Scott L (4 out of 5)



jumpman64 commented on F-Zero X:

A way more depthful racer than Mario Kart 64. The game runs silky smooth, even at mach speeds on the N64. While the game's visuals are improved on Wii, a lot of the textures just stink. The classic controller reigns supreme over the 64 controller in this game, and yes, I do recommend this game. However, if you're looking for a racer to play with a bunch of friends, than Mario Kart 64 is the way to go. -Scott L (4/5 Stars)



jumpman64 commented on 1080 Snowboarding:

This game was a childhood favorite for me, but the gameplay has somewhat aged. Still, if you love games like Wave Race or are a snowboarding or racing fan, this is a must buy. An amazing addition to any N64 fan's collection!
