    Not really that good, especially for an FPS game ( a genre of media I generally love). The control scheme and graphics are not great, and people calling it the "best game of all time", like many people do, obviously haven't played too many good titles as this is a bad one. Dissapointed with the quality of this game, Nintendo.

    Ok, for its time, I'm sure this game was great, as it was one of the first 3D first person shooters on home consoles. However, just because it was good back then doesn't give it a free pass nowadays. After playing the game for the first time a few years ago, I came to the conclusion that the only reason people like this game nowadays is because they are blinded by nostalgia.

However, just because it was good back then doesn't give it a free pass nowadays. After playing the game for the first time a few years ago, I came to the conclusion that the only reason people like this game nowadays is because they are blinded by nostalgia. They game has not held up at all, the graphics are hideous to look at, even for Nintendo 64 standards, the gameplay is boring and has no variety whatsoever, the multiplayer is about as bland and simple as multiplayer can possibly be in FPS games, and there is barely anything to do once you complete the story mode. Also, the controls in this game are just downright awful and take away any enjoyment within the gameplay at all. Now, I may cut this game some slack if it was fun to play, but it's not fun to play at all. And you may think I only hate it because of how outdated it is, but that's not the case, as I really enjoy Perfect Dark, which shares the same hideous graphics problem but is still fun to play. I have never once seen a game have as many nostalgia-blind fans as this one, people really need to realize sometimes that certain things may have used to be good but are no longer good because they have not aged well at all.

    Nope. How is this game so highly regarded when it's just a failure of an FPS?

    The weapons are improperly balanced, the game-play was absolutely terrible, and everything about this game just has "overrated" all over it.

    Let's all take of the nostalgia goggles for a minute here and give this game a fair analysis. I'm willing to say that there's a lot about this game that is really good. Almost everything, to be exact. Almost. So why is this game bad? One reason. The controls. The controls are so god awful, that they make the game pretty much unplayable. The N64 controller was not meant to play shooters.Let's all take of the nostalgia goggles for a minute here and give this game a fair analysis.

If you want to play this game in all it's glory, download the keyboard and mouse patch for it. Then you'll probably be able to play it the way all the nostalgia-blind people remember it. Expand

  2. Its strategy and story mixed in with the action make it a fantastic gaming experience.

    This is probably the best game you can get on the Nintendo 64.
