Product Description

Amazon.com

Back in the early 1990s, after the world had gone mad for Tetris, Nintendo put out its own variant of the puzzle game that, unlike most clones of the day, actually brought some new life to the original idea. Now the classic Nintendo game, with some improvements of its own, is reintroduced for the Nintendo 64. Rather than just twisting shapes to fill vacant spaces, Dr. Mario 64 will have you matching capsule-shaped pills to fight like-colored viruses. Players earn point bonuses when stringing combos together. Dr. Mario 64 comes with the original one- and two-player modes, and introduces a simultaneous four-player mode.

Review

Since his graduation from the Nintendo Medical School in 1990, part-time plumber and full-time hero Mario has fought the good fight against germs and flu bugs on the Game Boy and the Super NES; now he's here to disinfect your Nintendo 64! While we don't expect this update to change the genre in new and brilliant ways, numerous small additions and a very attractive price tag make this game just the thing we'd prescribe for the puzzler blues.

For those two or three of you unfamiliar with the game's premise, the challenge is for players and Mario to combat a swarming, relentless mass of viral bugs and the like. How? By blasting them back to germ-heaven with a good dose of drugs and antibodies -- in the form of multi-colored (they're halved) pills. Viruses are dispatched by matching each offending microbe with a minimum of four pills of the appropriate color. Of course, if the screen gets clogged with the germies, the patient's written off as a lost cause, and it's game over. It's simple, Tetris-like fun, and about as addictive, too -- addictive as a drug, one might say.

There are aspects that'll make this game worth a good look, however, and a four-player mode -- a first for the series -- is by no means chump change, either. We all know that puzzle games (especially the twitchy, geometric sort) are best played with a friend or two, and, of course, that's just as true of germs. As with previous versions, successfully clearing large combinations of viruses scores the big points, but gives players an advantage, too, by raining remnants of pills down onto the screens of their foes.

Other noticeable additions to this 64-bit update include the addition of Wario (no big deal in itself, but noteworthy), a timer and a larger gameplay area. This last addition is a welcome one, and should serve to make things both easier and more hectic, depending on how (and how well) the game is played. Visual updates are sure to be included, but don't get your hopes up for an aesthetic masterpiece: One look at these screens will clue just about anybody in that the game's not going to win any awards for boundary pushing. Still, if it's anywhere near as compelling as the first few games, that'll probably be fine with most gamers.

Few details about additional or innovative game modes have been included, so we'll wait and see if Nintendo releases the game with the proper amount of perfection and polish, or simply expects the four-player goodness to sell a copy. We're hoping for the former -- and if there's one thing to be sure about when it comes to Nintendo, there's usually a trick or two stashed carefully away.

It's about time that Nintendo decided to bring the game's tried and true formula to the N64, and it's a perfect time for those of you who haven't already succumbed to the game's inherently heady goodness to get in on the action. The game goes on sale April 9, and -- at a price of $29.95 -- could well be one of the last good games available for the system. -- DailyRadar Review

When I first heard this game was being remade and re-released for N64, I was very excited. I've always loved this game and remember playing many times with my friends when I was younger on NES. And when I heard it was going to be inexpensive, it was a no-brainer as to whether or not to buy it. The game, however, is not without its faults. But let�s start with the good. In Dr. Mario 64, there are many new ways to play the classic Dr. Mario. You can play in story mode, where you are pitted against a series of computer-controlled opponents (with an entertaining and simple story interspersed between battles). You can also play Vs. mode, which is just you against the computer. Or you can play Score Attack, where you try to get as many points as you can in 3 minutes. And, yes, you can still play classic Dr. Mario, just like it was on NES. Also, a two and four player mode has been included in this game. Playing Dr. Mario 64 with three other people is a really fun experience, and I am glad Nintendo included this in the remake. Now for the bad. The main reason this game didn�t get 5 stars is because it gets a little boring and repetitive after playing for awhile. Also, in four-player mode, the play screens for each of the players are a little small, but there is little Nintendo could have done to change these. In conclusion, Dr. Mario is a great remake of a great game. I would recommend it to fans of puzzle games or even fans of video games in general.

Being new to the Dr. Mario world, I rented this game expecting only a simple Tetris game. But I didn`t. I found a mind challenging, crazily addictive game of strategy, thought, and lots and lots of patience. The many pros of it include great tracks, different and out of this world modes, and great colors and graphics for a game of this type. For any lover of Tetris with a lot of time to spend, this game is for you! Some cons include the simple animation of the characters. ( But I bet they did that on purpose) Any action lover and fast paced games will find this game to be a bit boring. But, for a person playing this for only the first time, I say... DR. MARIO FOREVER!!!!

About two months ago I was in the toy store with my two sons. My seven year old Nintendo fanatic told me. "Dad Lets get Dr. Mario for mommy's birthday." Being a reasonable and normal dad I said "yea right, your mother wants this game." Much to my shock after I gave my wife her present she told me he was telling me the truth! Her sister had the game and she played it a ton. So when mother's day came around I picked it up for her. It is a cute game, basically a tetris variant is its most basic form (which is what she plays)and she loved it. It is challenge and actually involves a bit of subtle stratagy which makes it more worthwhile in my eyes, particularly in head to head compatition. The only problem is when I get home from work just before midnight I invariably find my wife in front of the set playing. Being a good husband I sit and play with her an hour or so. She loves it and the game is fun, but I NEED MY SLEEP and she is constantly playing it. It's worse than me with colonization! Nintendo you've created a monster, ok she's a REALLY CUTE monster.

When I first saw it I wasn't too excited, but after I rented it, it changed my opinion completely. The rest of my family loved it too. Plenty of modes, characters, and fun are in this game. It's a lot better than the first Dr. Mario because it has better graphics and the characters beat each other up when you perform a combo. Overall, It's a great puzzle.

I am so glad that there is a Dr Mario 64. I had the game on my old Nintendo system until it died, and I had almost forgot about it until now. It is fairly similiar to the old version, but of course the object is the same. They have updated music (very cool), and you can choose from a bunch of characters to use.
There is also different gameplays like flash (get the flashing viruses), score attack (get the highest score in three minutes, and a new story mode, which is cool. The multiplayer is awesome!
Overall this game is an excellent remake, and even if you didnt have the old version, try this game out anyways.

This game is a tad hard for me, but my wife is addicted to it. Be careful because Dr. Mario prescribes a drug that some people become addicted to.

This game has a few minor flaws, but in the end it is pure puzzle perfection. The gameplay is so enjoyable it's almost impossible to put it down without at least one hour worth of play time. The multiplayer is a blast, the only problem is that the four player mode scrunches up the screen- making it difficult to see. I personally find the music quite catchy, but the graphics are nothing special. Also, the game does not really add much to the basic Dr. Mario formula of NES days. Still, this puzzle game is so addictive that it would be silly not to try it.

Nintendo made two important smart decisions with the release of this game: 1) a low suggested retail price and 2) they didn't change hardly anything from the original. In fact if you play the classic one player game, the only thing that has changed is slightly improved graphics and better sound quality. However, the layout and gameplay is the same and just as fun. There are some really fun new options for game play such as flash mode and story mode, and although I haven't had a chance to try it yet, the multi-player looks like a lot of fun as well.
