Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (N64) Comments

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?

Quake II (N64) Comments

Quake II for Nintendo 64 (N64) arrived in June 1999.  For this port, the development team took advantage of what the N64 did best and had to add and redesign levels in the process. Furthermore, a much-needed four-player deathmatch was included, too.  Still, after the likes of GoldenEye 007 and Turok 2, was Quake II worth playing on N64?

Perfect Dark (N64) Comments

Perfect Dark for Nintendo 64 (N64), which was developed by Rare, arrived late in the N64’s life cycle in May 2000.  With much deeper Solo Missions and a completely customizable Combat Simulator, Perfect Dark took GoldenEye 007 to the next level.  Or did it?

Hexen (N64) Comments

Hexen for Nintendo 64 (N64) was released in June 1997.  It was a simple port of a two-year-old PC game with one big improvement: two to four players could participate in both cooperative or deathmatch modes.  Was the N64 version of Hexen overlooked?

GoldenEye 007 (N64) Comments

Although GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 (N64) was released in August 1997, it was the best-selling game of 1998 for any system.  It went on to sell about 7 million copies worldwide.  GoldenEye 007 turned the video game world upside down with its objective-based gameplay, its multiplayer modes, and its authentic movie-to-game adaptation.  It is routinely brought up as one of the best games of all time.  The question is, does GoldenEye 007 still deserve to hold that lofty status?

Forsaken 64 (N64) Comments

Forsaken 64 for Nintendo 64 (N64), which was released in May 1998, provides full 360-degree control over a heavily armed hoverbike, which means you can go up, down; left, right; forward, backward.  But, if you get turned upside down, the game automatically corrects your view so you’re right-side up.  Forsaken 64 is said to be a much better version of the PC game called “Descent.”  Do you agree?

Duke Nukem 64 (N64) Comments

Duke Nukem 64 for Nintendo 64 (N64) was released in November 1997.  It was not a straight port of Duke Nukem 3D, however.  Specifically, all “adult” references were removed, but it also a new level sequence and cooperative mode.  Would you consider Duke Nukem 64 one of the best versions?

Doom 64 (N64) Comments

Doom 64 for Nintendo 64 (N64), which was released in April 1997, was called a “bigger, better, and faster version of Doom” (the original was released in 1993). One might say that Doom 64′s gameplay may seem quite dated by modern standards, but the “kill it before it kills you” formula is still as fun as ever.  Do you agree?  Is the N64 version a great version of Doom?

Chopper Attack (N64) Comments

Chopper Attack, which was released for Nintendo 64 (N64) in June 1998, can best be likened to Electronic Art’s classic “Strike” series (e.g., Desert Strike and Jungle Strike).  However, it was NOT released by EA and was developed by a small Japanese company.  As such, Chopper Attack tried hard to fill a niche, but it did not come off so well.  Do you agree?
