Nintendo 64's popularity among younger gamers is no surprise. Well-respected games featuring such long-lived and much-loved personalities as Mario (of arcade classic Donkey Kong fame), Zelda, and Banjo-Kazooie are easy to learn and offer enormous replay value. But times are a' changin' and the system's ever-growing library of titles has expanded into every genre of games imaginable, including games better-suited for older gamers. In fact, some of the most acclaimed--in some cases, groundbreaking--games available on any platform today are packed onto N64's old-school cartridges.
Under the system's hood, its appeal to the young certainly didn't produce a less mature gaming machine. On the contrary, the 64-bit system boasts impressive graphics, stereo sound, and numerous accessory enhancements, including a high-resolution pack that boosts graphics to awe-inspiring resolutions.
Start your library with Goldeneye 007, Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, and Star Wars: Episode One Racer--these titles represent a decent start to any N64 cartridge library.
With the recent launch of Sega's Dreamcast system, Nintendo 64 is being left behind as the leader in video game technology. And with newer game systems featuring CD-based games, the system's expensive cartridge format is proving itself an archaic and unconventional storage format. But, at a sub-$100 recommended retail price, innovative accessory enhancements and a great library of games keep the system's rabid fan base satisfied, if not eager for Nintendo's next evolutionary step. --Eric Twelker

Sound-Some good some bad but in the end it was acctually far more worse then the Playstation(the first of course)which was such a huge let down for some of the Nintendo fans, I mean I'll be honest it was so mushy in some games it's not even funny! It's a shame cause most of the sound is what brings scores down for games in the gaming industry(seriously it does)but for me the amazing games just make up for it
Graphics-Um........were all of you as shocked as I was when we saw Mario in a full 3d world? If your answe was yes then you are correct, the visuals in N64 were far more superior then the Playstaion and put out some of the best looking vidoe games of it's time(and to me some games that are still good looking to this day). The visuals were just jaw dropping, awe and looks of amazement for me. Simply put...Nintendo scored big time in the graphics departure. It broke out of the 2d cartoony look and braught us new and exciting/pretty looking games of 96 to 2000.
Memory Card-I can't say much other then like the Dreamcast VMU, the memory card with Rumble pack was just awesome...Nuff said
Games- Where the heck do I start? The games for the Nintendo 64 were some of the best games ever created on a console.Read more ›
"Im really sorry that the item is not working out for you but i know that the system was working 100% fine before it was shipped to you if you woild have requested a refund i would have been able to possibly help you but unfortunately you are outside of the return policy at this time therefore i cant really help you out im so sorry for that "
So I wrote him back explaining that it was a present and hadn't been used. I also asked for any advice in how to repair it if he would not take it back. I never received another response. Though I can see how it may have been damaged during shipping, due to the fact that it was sent wrapped in news paper in an old beat up shoe box taped together.
Personally I found that " DawgFrankDizzl85" was completely unprofessional, and would encourage others to look at other options prior to his equipment
