Nintendo 64 is one of the best gaming consoles ever made not because of the design or hardware, in fact, it is one of the few Nintendo gaming consoles that does not have something crazy or out of the box.

If you’ve experienced Super Mario Kart on the SNES, this game will feel like a grand homecoming. New players of all skill levels will instantly pick up on the fun. – GamePro

Although it doesn’t break any new grounds in originality (like Mario 64), Mario Kart 64 is a great addition to the N64 line-up. The solid graphics, good sound, and addictive gameplay–coupled with features like being able to race yourself (from a former race) in a special ghost mode–make you want to play it forever. – Nintendojo

A weak one player game, Mario Kart 64 excels in the multiplayer arena, and that alone is worth the cost of admission. Few titles can come close to this one in terms of party games. – Gaming Age




A highly addictive and satisfying game. Super Smash Bros. is a classic game for the Nintendo 64. If you haven’t played it or its successor, and there certainly aren’t many of you kinds of people, what are you waiting for? Do it! – Nintendophiles

Fast paced and accessible to everyone. Nintendo of America were mad to consider not releasing this game in the US. Any doubts about it’s quality should be cast out of your mind. It’s fun, addictive and it’s got a superb multi-player mode. – Nintendojo

it’ll never be confused with “Street Fighter” or “Tekken,” but then again it was never meant to. Nevertheless, it’s the most original fighting game on the market and possibly the best multiplayer game on any system. – Game Critics



This Zelda adventure will undoubtedly withstand the test of time and take its place as one of the best games to ever grace a home system. – Cincinnati Enquirer

This is, without a doubt, one of the all-time greatest games made. 50 years from now people will still be playing and enjoying this game… thoroughly. – GameShark

High praise goes to them for also managing to fit joy, creativity and discovery into the game and doing so without the use of Full-Motion Video (FMV) and the CD soundtrack his critics said was needed. This game is simply the most complete experience of any game ever made making Ocarina Of Time the game I’ve always dreamed of playing – Game Critics



As the first true 3D platform game, the game does everything right. Super Mario 64 is a masterpiece in the truest sense of the word. – All Game Guide

The sheer scale of the achievement, in originality, variety and technological muscle earns it a ‘Best Game Ever’ acclamation through sheer muscle, almost regardless of its undoubted and typically Nintendo artistry. – TotalGames.net

The distribution of power stars in the levels is horrendous. I think 7 stars in one level is more than enough, don’t you think? I understand that there are memory constraints, but there either could have been less stars overall, or 1 (maybe 2) more level(s). Definately a problem. – Nintendorks
