  1. Easily one of the most enjoyable and rewarding videogames I have ever played. The zany touches are quite brilliant but the challenging and original gameplay is what really makes this cartridge rocket.
  2. A breath of incredibly fresh air. Equal parts action, platform, and puzzler, this baby breaks through the mire and shows what some truly original game design (and a lot of heavy drug use) can amount to.
  3. A superb game, but possibly not to everyone's taste. It turns the 3D platform genre on its head with its fresh approach to puzzles, but it can be a frustrating experience at times. If you want something a bit different to the standard N64 fare, this is definitely worth a look.
  4. SSSV is out, and while it's unmistakably a late-blooming first-generation N64 game, its charm and straightforward, if simplistic, delivery make up for the graphics and relatively easy gameplay.
  5. Silicon Valley is truly one worth the wait. Original in every sense, wild, wacky and crazy. Adults, don't overlook what appears to be the average kid's game. The gameplay and puzzles are devilishly clever and you'll have hours of fun with this one.

    This game is an absolute gem that truly emphasizes old-school gameplay mechanics in a stylized 3D world -- all with a wicked sense of humor and loads of animals to kill.
  7. SS SV is the most satisfying, original, funny, amazing gaming experience I've had in a long while. This game is absolutely brilliant.
  8. The quirkiness of the game, along with its innovative premise, promises a pleasant time to be had by all the family.
  9. At its heart, Silicon Valley is simply a blast to play. The fun and ingenious level design, the ability to control so many different animals, the mind-racking puzzles--all add up to a successful formula which few developers attempt, and even fewer achieve: originality.
  10. The puzzles in Silicon Valley are varied and fun, preventing the whole thing from just becoming a matter of repeatedly killing things, and this is yet another factor which keeps the interest going.

    A true masterpiece, deserving a sequel. A unique style of a puzzle platform, with so many alternitives to the formula. A must buy.
