  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.

    Unfortunately, this game is nowhere near as good as the PC version. It is harder to control, and it seems slower than the PC version. .

    I really enjoyed playing it, not having a PC- but definitely, despiter being a good port, it's much better on a PC, where the graphics I really enjoyed playing it, not having a PC- but definitely, despiter being a good port, it's much better on a PC, where the graphics are clearer and control is a lot easier. Still, an impressive port which gave more people the chance to play this and did it's best within the N64 limitations. Full Review »
