5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the greatest game of all time, May 17, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Super Mario 64 (Video Game)
I've been playing many a game since the days of the BBC Micro and Spectrum over the last 15 years or so. Theres just something about Mario that makes it so special. From the 3 classics on the NES to one of the greatest SNES games - Mario World. Now we have the next platformer in the series and I have to say I was hooked from day one.
This game has been designed so well. The levels are both varied and have been tested extensively. Someone has sat down and said I want to make this the best level in the game each time. The Nintendo Game writers may not have a lot of code to work with but their level design, origniality and playbility is superb. They really care about each and every level and as with the other Mario games, it doesn;t stop when you reach the last level.
Like the other Mario games there are hidden levels and part of the challange is to find them. The castle is a great setting for the game with levels in the desert, snow, underwater and they are all in 3D! I was a bit cautious over whether the 3D would work with Mario but great controls and camera angles make it an even better platform experience.
Levels can be found by gaining more keys etc but the most addictive part is finding all the coins to open up the really hidden levels. You wont stop til you find EVERY single coin and EVERY single level. You even get an extra treat when they are all found!
There are cute characters, extra challenges, Mario has extra powers like High Flying, Metal Mode and you can make use of the scenery.
The tutorials as you go on the early levels are also good so you wont be continuly looking at the manual.
I love this game and when someone told me I wouldn't stop til I completed it they weren't wrong! So go play it!
