Top Gear Rally 2 (N64) Comments

Top Gear Rally 2 arrived on Nintendo 64 (N64) two years after the original and attempted to address the sensitive control, lacking multi-player capabilities, and initial slow speed.  Was Top Gear Rally 2 successful?  Or was something from the original lost in the change of development teams?

Top Gear Rally (N64) Comments

Top Gear Rally for Nintendo 64 (N64) was heavily scrutinized when it was released in October 1997.  Although it had “Top Gear” in its name, Top Gear Rally was modeled after Sega Rally rather than the arcade-style Top Gear series.  Did you enjoy Top Gear Rally?

Top Gear Overdrive (N64) Comments

Top Gear Overdrive for Nintendo 64 (N64) was released in November 1998 and was designed to hark back to the series’ Super Nintendo roots.  It is an arcade-style racing game where you use nitros and take shortcuts to get to the finish line first.  It even was one of the first games to take advantage of the Expansion Pak that was meant for Perfect Dark.  What did you think of Top Gear Overdrive?

The New Tetris (N64) Comments

The New Tetris, which arrived exclusively for Nintendo 64 (N64) in August 1999, introduced the world to a few minor changes to Tetris that have remained with the franchise ever since.  For example, The New Tetris included the ability to “hold” a piece, to play with four players, and to send garbage in the versus mode.  How does The New Tetris compare with the latest versions?

Tetrisphere (N64) Comments

Tetrisphere for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in August 1997 and really has nothing to do with “Tetris.”  The object of the game is to remove Tetris-shaped pieces from a sphere with like-shaped pieces.  How does Tetrisphere rank among the all-time great puzzle games?

Super Mario 64 (N64) Comments

Just like Super Mario Bros. brought gaming to a whole new level back in 1985, Super Mario 64 ushered us into a new era in 1996—the third dimension.  There is no doubt that it was groundbreaking when it was released for Nintendo 64 (N64).  Now the question becomes, is Super Mario 64 still one of video gaming’s all-time best?

Space Invaders (N64) Comments

Space Invaders for Nintendo 64 (N64) blast onto the scene in December 1999.  Surprisingly, the developers of the game left the core of original game intact in that the game is still played on a single, flat screen and that enemies still slowly move down the screen in rows.  With its minor changes, do you think Space Invaders for N64 pays homage to the original?

Snowboard Kids (N64) Comments

Despite its success, there have not been many Mario Kart-type games released throughout the years.  Snowboard Kids for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in March 1998 and provided some good competition to Mario Kart 64.  Obviously, Mario Kart 64 sold many more copies, but how do you think Snowboard Kids compared?
