Wipeout 64 (N64) Comments

Wipeout 64 for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in November 1998.  The venerable PlayStation racing franchise was ported to N64 and tried to take the best of the original Wipeout and Wipeout XL.  Do you think Wipeout 64 was worthy?

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?

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?

Top Gear Hyper-Bike (N64) Comments

Top Gear Hyper-Bike arrived on Nintendo 64 (N64) in March 2000 and contained both dirt bikes (i.e., Supercross/Motocross) and street bikes (i.e., Superbike).  It was definitely a fast-paced, arcade-style racing game.  Do you think Top Gear Hyper-Bike is noteworthy now?

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?

San Francisco Rush (N64) Comments

The home port of San Francisco Rush: Extreme Racing, which was released for Nintendo 64 (N64) in November 1997, went above and beyond the call of duty.  It had all of the original and updated tracks.  It had a two-player simultaneous mode.  It did not have the typical graphical problems of 32/64-bit games (clipping, pop-up, and fog).  What did you think of San Francisco Rush?

Re-Volt (N64) Comments

Re-Volt, which came out for Nintendo 64 (N64) in August 1999, tried to be a 3D spirtual successor to R.C. Pro-Am.  Well, it missed the mark, but Re-Volt still had R/C physics, four-player modes, and a track editor.  Was Re-Volt a good racing game on N64?

Off Road Challenge (N64) Comments

Off Road Challenge, which was released for Nintendo 64 (N64) in June 1998, was a late ’90s, three-dimensional update to the classic Super Off-Road series. Rather than building upon the highly successful formula of the original, the designers opted to make the game more akin to Cruis’n USA.  Was that a wise move?

Multi-Racing Championship (N64) Comments

Multi-Racing Championship, or MRC, was released for Nintendo 64 (N64) in September 1997.  Although it had potential because of its unique branching, multi-terrain concept, it also lacked challenge and longevity.  What did you think about Multi-Racing Championship?
