"Hey, we've got a new portable system releasing in the fall of '04, but we don't have time to come up with a new, hot title for it.. What are we gonna do, Mr. Miyamoto? ..."Let's port Mario 64! We'll jus add a few levels, bells, stars, and whistles, some minigames, and touch controls, and it will sell millions!"
--Overheard and translated from Nintendo of Japan LTD. Circa spring '03

Okay, so that conversational exchange may not have really happened, but it more or less sums up the product nicely.

For everyone who fell for the "L is real" or Luigi hidden in Mario64 prank from the 90's, well he's playable this time, along with Wario and Yoshi. In fact, the game starts you out as Yoshi, in search of Mario and the rest of the gang. The powerup hats system has been remixed in an interesting way, that I won't spoil here, but it definitely adds to the charm of the game overall.

The best possible version of the hardware to play it on, in my humble opinion would be the 3ds XL, as the screen is bigger, and much crisper than any before it in the Nintendo hardware family, plus the analog stick on the 3ds does smooth directional transitions from input to input, ALMOST but NOT QUITE like the original N64 control stick. However you will still have to press a button to run. The next would be the DSi XL, again for being the next brightest, big screen.

The only negatives I would throw at this game is the throwaway mutiplayer game, and the graphics taking a more noticeable hit from the original when played on the newer hardware.

Everything about this product was true to description. It arrived a couple days earlier than expected which was great, the game card was in a small plastic protective case and the game was sleek and clean upon opening. When inserting the card into my DS, I did notice that the sides seemed to be catching a bit and after some inspection it was just some of the plastic parts that weren't smoothed down. I took a nail file to the sides and after that, all was perfect! Graphics were great, no trouble with the DS console reading the game, and no freezing occurred. Overall, would absolutely buy again from this seller!

I waited for this game for about 2 weeks and when it finally came,I was excited to play it. But it didn't work. When I looked at the game card it had been poorly handled with with bites and a stain on it and even pencil marks! $17.00 is steep for a game that doesn't even work.

This is AMAZING! Multiplayer isn't the best, only 4 options of vs games and each is only about a minuet at most. BUT, the rest is so fun!

If you loved and conquered Super Mario 64 then get ready for some new challenges in this DS remake. Now you can use 4 different characters: Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, & Wario in order to save Princess Peach and the castle. Some new and exciting twists make the game different enough to consider a buy but not too different where it would drive you away. Re-conquer the world of Super Mario 64 with more challenges and new ways to get around.

Great game with terrible controls. The DS or 3DS joystick can't replace playing this with a proper controller. There's fun to be had if you can put up with the bad controls, but after a couple hours I tapped out, or rather, my hands couldn't take it anymore. I wish they'd port this version to a console.

You can tell right from the box art that this game is not exactly what you want. Wario, Luigi, and Yoshi were not in the original game. This is NOT just Super Mario 64 ported to the DS; Nintendo tried to change the game significantly. The original levels are all still here; however, many of the stars have either been modified or changed altogether. Each character has different abilities and gets different things from ability hats. It is frustrating at times to get within a stone's throw of a star only to find out the character you came into the level with can't actually obtain that star. I understand the urge to do something slightly different, but I really wish they hadn't. Super Mario 64 is not a game that needed help. It's still a good game, and it's still fun, but the changes are unnecessary and often get in the way.

Two disappointments, the game box it came in doesn't have the paper in the case showing what it was. It's just a plain case with no indication. The other is it works half the time, when the game is removed and put back in it might not show up as a game is in the slot.

Super fun game. Loved the original as a kid, and the extras in this version made me love it all over again. Those that have troubles with the controls have probably not played the original, where the controls were really reallly tricky. Ha. I would for sure recommend this to Mario fans, and those looking for some nostalgic fun!
