    When it comes to video game destruction for brains and brawn, Blast is definitely the master.
  2. 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.

    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.
  4. It's like playing witih explosive-laden Tonka trucks, with no mess to clean up afterwards. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  5. A riotous arcade experience structured to provide massive, total addiction. The 'just-one-more-go' syndrome is impossible to resist.
  6. 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.

    This game is perfect, hands down. One of the greatest games of all time, and also one of the most challenging games ever! (Battletoads anyone?).

    Overlooked and underrated, Blast Corps is an addicting game with plenty of action. The replay value is probably the greatest aspect... You just have to go beck to every level and earn the insanely difficult platnum medals! Expand

    Brilliantly executed, original, and sodding hard. Certainly one of the bests titles released on the n64, and one of my favorite games of all time.

    An under-rated game, which made for a playable and exciting use of the N64's 3D abilities. It is so enjoyable, you find yourself playing endlessly, just to get those satisfying platinum medals. The relative simplicity of the N64's environments meant that even though there are not so many games made for it, they are often perfect realisations of their concepts. Simple though it is, this is a case in point. Expand
