5.0 out of 5 stars Jet Ski Racer November 20, 1999

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent Game. The graphics are totally awesome and realism beyond comprehension. Diffently worth the $$$. Stunt mode is great which allows the user to perform free style jumps, flips, and tricks. A must have for your N64 collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic!!! August 15, 2004
By A. Hitt
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember the first time I saw this game... What a beautiful memory. Even though the Nintendo 64 turned out to kinda bust, it was my transition from 2d to 3d games. My first experiences with 3d were with Mario 64. I first played Nintendo 64 at a friend's house, and Wave Race 64 was one of the first games I played. My jaw was hanging for about a half hour. The first thing I saw was Dolphin Park - swimming dolphins, fish, "splashy" sounding music, backflips, barrel rolls, and BEAUTIFUL water. It was too much! What a surreal experience! After I got back up from fainting, my friend and I played this game for HOURS and HOURS and HOURS and HOURS. We would go to Southern Island and tried to find what we could ramp over, go under, and crash into. It sounds pathetic, but I've had some of the best times of my life playing Wave Race 64 with friends.

I never actually bought the game. I was around 11 or 12 at the time, and $60 was hard to come up with. But boy, we would rent it and made use of the WHOLE 72 hours we had it. I'm 20 years old now, and being frustrated with today's gaming experience, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and finally buy Wave Race 64. I hoped to experience some of the joy I did so many years ago. I found it for $2.75 on ebay. It's still a great game, but it was a little sad to play it again - to see the out-dated graphics and all. I beat all the circuit classes in no time. Also, the guys I used to play it with aren't around anymore. Makes me yearn for the good ol' days. :*(

But I'll quit sobbing. This game is without a doubt a classic. It is one of the best racing games of ALL TIME. DO NOT DISAGREE WITH ME.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! December 20, 1999

Wave Race 64 is an exceptional title for those of us burned out on shoot-em-ups. It offers excellent graphics and sound with great realism and humor. The race locations range from tropical islands to freshwater lakes to artic ice. The music (unique for each location) varies from new age and R&B all the way to some pretty outrageous 70's progressive rock. Different play levels are challenging, yet not overwhelming. The stunt mode is great fun, and the two-player mode is great for spouses, since players can choose (and personalize, with name) both male and female racers. This title, along with Beetle Adventure Racing, are always popular when friends come over to our house. Sometimes we even let the kids play. Wave Race 64 proves that a video game can be challenging and exciting without violence.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, but not great April 11, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I rented Wave Race 64 in spring break '97. It was a game that I wanted to get when I first saw the previews of it in Gamepro. I was at my brother's house and we rented it for that week and it wasn't nearly as good as I thought it would be. The graphics and control in it can't be much better, but it fails in every other aspect. The water was the most realistic I had ever seen in a game and the control was real tight and easy to control. But we got tired of playing it after a few rounds and it was too easy to win against the computers. The announcer was also about the worst I had ever heard in a video game. He just says "Cool" and "Ok" over and over again. The replay value is mediocre. The 3 different modes of play will keep it up there, but WaveRace 64 just gets old quick and it's too easy.
If you like racing games such as Jet Moto and other water racing games, you might like WaveRace, but myself, I just wasn't crazy about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE game that sold me on the N64 system! November 16, 1999

A total adrenaline rush! The control and physics are incredible. The graphics and sound are a superb treat! This is the first game I purchased for the N64 and is still my favorite...even after years of playing this game I have managed to find ways to set new course records! I've played the PSN Jet Motos (yawn), but Wave Race 64 RULES! PLEASE, Nintendo, make a sequel that will blow even this great game out of the water!

5.0 out of 5 stars Start your Jet-Skis! December 7, 2000
By A Customer
This is a great game! It was my first game for the N64 and although it's some time back now (2 1/2 yrs), I still find it brilliant! I would really recommend this game to anyone as it is not only great fun, but also quite simple to play. When you've played for some time you can also start trying to beat the different levels and get on to new courses! The practice mode is also great, you'll get the chance to practice and do amazing tricks. This game just won't bore you! A MUST for the N64 fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars R U FREAKING KIDDING ME??? November 25, 2003
By A Customer
I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with a game, except for Goldeneye, or Mariokart 64 (Battle Mode ONLY!!!). The guy who said it's all about the stunt mode is dead on. My thumb still has a callous six years later. Glacier, Glacier, Glacier!!! Good luck on figuring out the move that will get you up to the 60,000 point margin. Buy this game NOW!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Waves Up! February 23, 2003
Not that often, video games can really be very strong at the sea. Most of the time, there often misplaced, or even forgotten. Just like most racing games, they all seem to be exactly the same like yesterday's newspaper. In the case of Wave Race, it is a little bit different than meets the eye. Since the late 80's, jet skis became a popular kind of sport at sea. Nevertheless, it continues to inspire some of the most interesting games ever.
Wave Race 64, was the very first racing game made for the Nintendo 64, in 1996. The game remains a classic, featuring over 8 different race courses by sea. The courses range from a simple pond, to a frozen course called Glacier Bay. As you win each cup, the races get increasingly difficult. Although the game lacks some value, with only four racers to choose from, it still remains a staple for any N64 gamer.
While many people stopped buying Nintendo 64 games for quite a long time, due to the Gamecube, and Playstation 2, it does run up a faster time than most video game that require CD-ROM technology. Get this one, and start wave running away.
