It plays absolutely fine on the 3DS so it's got to be the DS's lack of a stick.

You're still limited to 8 directions, also there is no analog with running mapped to a button...


Then I'm gonna use that as the excuse for why I sucked at it haha. I really never felt awkward with it, but it had been decades between that and the original for me.

Huge chunks of the game that required precision in 64 simply don't in 64DS due to the fuzzy jumps of Yoshi and Luigi.

Then just play as Mario?

I never had an issue with the controls or the game tbh, I rarely used anyone other than Mario, I think it's one of the best re-makes out there.

Yeah, only a few stars require Yoshi. For the rest, you could use caps.

Because they picked Yoshi over Waluigi

Waluigi isn't even a "super mario" character. He doesn't deserve to be in the platformers. And yoshi is more unique anyway. Waluigi has no real established powers.

The lack of the control stick. They should've at least waited for the 3DS before porting it over.

Man it would have looked beautiful in full 3D.
I'm sick of off topic threads and abusive mods.

It just seemed like Waluigi would have made more sense given the appearance of the other 3 characters (the overalls squad, Lol).
As far as powers go, I'm sure they could've scraped something together for him (I'm pretty sure Luigi couldn't phase through walls until this game).

But that's just my opinion on the matter. Yoshi was a decent character in the end, but it always just seemed like an odd choice to me.

I liked SM64DS. I acknowledge the controls weren't great but they weren't TOO bad... the new content outweighs it.

Too bad SM64 didn't get a proper 3DS remake like Star Fox and the Zelda games did. The DS one was a mistake.

I agree with both of you. I don't know what Nintendo were smoking by porting it to DS, given it's many limitations in comparison to the 3DS (graphics, no analog stick, etc).

Hopefully, they'll fine tune the port of this game in the future.

I mean, it was a launch title for the DS... did they know they'd make a 3DS at that point? I doubt it.
