  1. A title which has almost infinite replay value because every time you play it it’s a different game. Even if you repeatedly just play the same map over and over again the variety of things you can do and the impressive AI of the CPU opponents means that it’s never the same game twice.
  2. This is that fresh breath of air that the system needed so badly.

    A fantastic title that suffers graphically on the console, but still retains everything else that made it so special.
  4. The magic of "StarCraft's" expertly designed strategy glows brightly enough to blind you to its few inadequacies.
  5. The huge number of levels available and the two-player split-screen mode -- slowdown ridden as it is -- make for an incredible amount of value.
  6. A very playable and engaging, if unattractive, port of the PC game that offers no surprises.
  7. The good news is that if you can't play "StarCraft" on your PC, then "StarCraft 64" is the perfect alternative.
  8. Of course, puzzle fans, tetris players, strategists and nude twister players alike will all love Starcraft 64!
  9. The game will never live up to the PC version, and the two-player mode (although better than battling on your own), makes a mockery of the fun of the computer's multiplayer capabilities.
  10. A solid real-time strategy for a system that offers few games requiring much thought.
  11. While there isn't much for fans of the popular PC version of Starcraft to get excited about, those new to the series will enjoy engaging, addictive gameplay coupled with an incredibly protracted single player mode.
  12. If you have the PC game, you're going to start whining and wishing for a mouse and keyboard.
  13. 77
    Slick and polished, this game absolutely is not. However, if you forgive and forget its looks, you will find yourself drawn in and addicted in no time.
  14. Somehow, despite these behemoth obstacles, the game does capture a good portion of the original game's magic, and overall, isn't a bad investment if you enjoy RTS games.
  15. If you're an RTS fan who never got a chance to check out "StarCraft" on your PC, then you should definitely give it a whirl. If you've already conquered the universe, there ain't no reason to do it on your N64.
  16. Ultimately, I can only recommend "StarCraft64" to those of you that simply have no other alternative in playing the game.
  17. The game just doesn't measure up to PC standards; it doesn't even come close.
