Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) Comments

After it was released in November 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for Nintendo 64 (N64) was quickly hailed as one of the greatest games of all time.  It took a much-beloved 2D franchise and served it absolute poetic justice in a 3D world.  If you consider the subsequent 3D Zelda games, where you do think The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ranks now?

Yoshi’s Story (N64) Comments

Yoshi’s Story for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in March 1998.  Although some thought it was supposed to be a 2D sequel to Yoshi’s Island (Super NES), it certainly went in a different direction.  Most people call Yoshi’s Story a disappointment, but did you enjoy the game?

Wave Race 64 (N64) Comments

As one of the first releases for Nintendo 64 (N64), Wave Race 64 stunned with its wave effects, which were not only visually appealing but also affected the actual gameplay/control.  By the end of the N64’s life cycle, Wave Race 64 was still clearly one of the best racing games on the system.  How does it rate among the all-time greats?

1080° Snowboarding (N64) Comments

1080 Snowboarding for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in April 1998, just missing the winter scene.  From the same team that brought you Wave Race 64, 1080 Snowboarding had all the makings of an instant classic.  By coupling graphical splendor with gameplay that was addictive, original, strategic, and simplistic all at the same time, you had a masterful blend that only Shigeru Miyamoto and his EAD teams could provide.  But—would it still be considered one of the best snowboarding games of all time?
