Falls short of what Zelda: Ocarina of Time was able to do with their "remake"
on April 24, 2017
I had wanted to play the original Mario 64 again for years, as we always enjoyed it on the 64. Bring back memories. And, it certainly delivers on bringing back old memories. I had such high hopes on this game, but I was really just hoping for an untouched version of the game. No extra added stars or levels. Just the classic version I played with my friends as a teen. Of course, I knew before buying, that it wasn't gonna be the version I wanted, but it would have to do. I also understand what others have complained about, pertaining to the awkward controls. All in all, still a good title to play. I just may be a little biased, as I was able to enjoy the original when it first came out. Maybe if there was an option to play the classic version, I might've actually given it 4 or 5 stars. I find myself just wanting to get through the game, so I can just get back to another glorious round of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
