Very Good

I have to admit that I was completely suprised at how much I enjoy this game. The advances Nintendo has made over its "GameBoy Advanced" is amazing. In fact, just the "mini" games in Super Mario 64 has more entertainment value than almost any Gameboy Advanced Game. Another thing that is amazing is the size of the game... it is the size of a standard flash memory card, which makes Nintendo DS games about 75% smaller than those for GB Adv.

As far as the game itself- it is completely what you expect...Nitendo 64's Super Mario, but with a few new tricks. This has always been one of my favorite games - The last "real" Mario game before Nintendo turned everything into a "Mario" game. The game is very playable, however, I didn't find the touch screen to be too helpful (although it is very well incorporated in some of the mini games).

I can honestly give thisgame 5 full stars - and say that it is a bargain at only $30 (Which is what I paid for the game).

What did you think of this review?

Let's suppose for a minute you've not only redefined an outcast entertainment medium, but redefined it in an all-time fashion so it becomes the template for every bit of work in that medium that follows yours.     Most people would be pretty satisfied with themselves after doing that.     Most people aren't Nintendo video game guru Shigeru Miyamoto. Miyamoto decided that creating the template for literally every platforming video game EVER wasn't good enough, …

Every now and then a start this game up from scratch and go seeking the 120 stars and the battles with Bowser. What makes this game so fun is that even though you master it there are several stars that are just so hard to get again (I don't know how many times I need to race the penguin down the chute before I can get one of the tougher stars).     I really love the music and the toughness of Mario as he beats the baddies into submission with kicks, punches and smashes. Though …

When I first saw Super Mario 64 in 1996 I had to pick my jaw up off the ground. While 10 years have passed, I still consider this game of the finest pieces of entertainment I have ever seen. The kinds of things that the development team pulled off in the mid 90s set the stage for all future video game development and it was, is and always will be groundbreaking.    An achievement that should not be ignored and is still as much fun today as it was a decade (DECADE?!!?) ago.     …
