"Jump, Double Jump, Triple Jump!"
Welcome to the world of Super Mario 64! You're up for an adventure through many levels and secrets! Killing bad guys, climbing cliffs a another Mario game to play!
Game play 9/10
You have many worlds to explore so you need to know Mario's moves, pros and cons. Mario has a life meter and a life count, be sure to keep track of it, you have lots of enemies too. Each of them have their own way of being defeated and bosses too, sometimes if you defeat an enemy in a special way you get special stuff. You have a camera too, you can zoom in and out but be careful the camera can get stuck behind something and you can't see your self, so move around some and the camera will come back too you. Have fun and don't try to hard!
You're our hero Mario and you have save a princess, Princess Peach Toadstool. In the beginning you get a letter from her saying she made you a cake, you run up to the castle bridge and a little turtle with glasses on a cloud greets you a tells you about your camera system then you come into the castle only to be treated to a threat from our villain Bowser, he's the big orange turtle with spikes and he has kidnapped Peach and taken the castle's most important items, the power stars. Bowser used the power stars to make the paintings in the castle the worlds you have to win. You must save the princess and defeat Bowser, Mario's the only hope. Who know what Bowser could do with the stars but, Bowser didn't know about all the stars in the castle grounds.
The graphics are pretty good for the first game ever made for Nintendo 64, the water splashes when you jump in or out, the fire in some courses it bubbles and pops and dribbles and sops, snowy areas Mario doesn't fall asleep if you leave him alone, he squats and tries to warm himself. There are sandy places too! Mario can die in it so don't stay too long. The sound and music really do bring out the game too, enemies have their own sounds and so do items. Some special items have their own music too, and you can here the charge of sound when Mario's running on different surfaces: Grass, sand, etc.
Play Time/ Replay-ability 10/10
If you are really good you can beat this game within a day but it's way more fun to take your time. It's really fun to play your favorite levels over and over aging too!
Final Recommendation: Buy or Don't Bye?
Buy. This is one of the best Nintendo 64 games ever!
