"2D to 3D Nintendo at it's BEST!!!"
Bowser has tooken your stars and hidden them through out the castle and in courses. You must find stars to open rooms for more courses to play. Each time you play Bowser and defeat him you get a key to open a door. Nintendo did a good job on bringing Mario into 3D and it was just as good as Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. Every thing in this game was brilliantly designed and used the 64's power to the fullest with mind-boggling levels and awesome gameplay.
The controls on Mario were very responsive and active. The movement of Mario was easy and not hard. On the controller all the movements of Mario were well done on the 64's controller almost like it was made for this game. The controls are simple yet easy it's not hard to remember what all the buttons can do. Mario can do almost anything with just a push of a button.
The game sounds great and the music was well chose for Mario. There is just one problem what's wrong with Mario's voice it's just weird. The detail in sound sounds great and Mario's accent was well done. Bottom-line the sound and music is great but the voice it's just crazy.
The graphics look great and Mario is well designed this could be some of the best graphics on the Nintendo 64. Everything looks so smooth and every thing was greatly detailed. You can't imagine how much time it took to create this game. The only bad thing about this game is the camera it sometimes is in the wrong places and you can't see anything.
This game will take a while to beat so it will last quite a long time. You can pick the levels you want to go to and you don't have to play them all through again. It has all different kinds of levels to choose from-Snow, Water, Water/Land all kinds for you to choose from.
BUY OR RENT
If you want to keep Mario alive and if you liked Super Mario World on the SNES you should like this game. If your not sure about Mario going into 3D you will want to rent this one first.
