    When it comes to video game destruction for brains and brawn, Blast is definitely the master.

    Blast Corps never denies that it is primarily a video game, and that is very refreshing. A great first generation game that shows off Rare's potential and game-making skill.
  3. The orginality is definitely here, and the fun and excitement is also packed into this game.
  4. Blast Corps is a cartridge worth it's weight in explosives. There's no game like this available for any other console but something tells me, we'll be seeing plenty of copy cats in the future.

    Blast Corps stands tall with not so much as an attempt to recreate its addictive game play and charm. With intelligent puzzles, good fast action, and a huge variety of things to do (like blow things up), you can't help but to fall in love with this game. [Jan 2005]
  6. The original premise, varied situations and fresh gameplay means that Blast Corps is like nothing you've experienced before. The biggest shame about Blast Corps is that it seems destined to be the most under-rated classic Nintendo 64 game.
  7. A riotous arcade experience structured to provide massive, total addiction. The 'just-one-more-go' syndrome is impossible to resist.

    It's like playing witih explosive-laden Tonka trucks, with no mess to clean up afterwards. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  9. In this frighteningly entertaining new cart, developers Rare have gone all out, combining nuclear weapons, giant robots, construction vehicles, AND load motor noises in one title. The results are spectacular.
  10. A refreshing aspect of Blast Corps is that it involves replayability within the game. Once you finish a level the first time, you need to go back and finish it again and again.
  11. If it seems you don't get your money's worth in videogames anymore, Blast Corps is truly exceptional value. Three words: original, addicting, and challenging. There's no game quite like this in the 32/64-bit generation.

Never have I played a more uniquely satisfying, acceptably challenging, "it's your fault you messed up" kind of game.

    This is one of few games I frequently go back to on the Nintendo 64 that doesn't feel outdated. I can't think of another destruction puzzle game as good as this. If you're a Nintendo 64 collector, get this game ASAP. You won't regret it.

    Another great N64 game that required time and patience. It wasn't the easiest game by any means, nor the most difficult but you had so muchAnother great N64 game that required time and patience. It wasn't the easiest game by any means, nor the most difficult but you had so much fun playing through it. You never got bored of the game, or at least I didn't and I can't say that about many games. If you own an N64 then you must own this game. Full Review »
