  1. This new version, in fact, is much the same as the ones of yesteryear. But since that means it still features great gameplay and some of the best multiplayer in existence, you won't hear us complaining.

    Fortunately, the simple yet dead-on controls react perfectly and never make the game unintentionally frustrating.
  3. The learning curve of this title is still a dream and the game is just as good as it always was. The new modes are icing on the vitamin.
  4. In only a few days my anti-videogame girlfriend had become a wide-eyed, pixel staring “let me try this level just one more time” gaming geek.
  5. Hardcore puzzle gamers who’ve tasted better fare won’t want to go back to this cafeteria-cut game any time soon. The Doctor is in, but he’s showing his age.
  6. With new gameplay modes and new challenges, Dr. Mario 64 is a fresh and entertaining experience even to gamers who have spent countless hours playing its forerunners. It may be short on innovation, but it's a pleasing remake of a masterfully crafted formula.
