    The biggest, most heartpounding and awe-inspiring quest of all. Oh yes, Zelda 64 does indeed own your soul.

    So damn close to perfect that it makes me want to cry tears of joy.

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

    Where Majora rises to the top is its concept – three days to save the world. The execution of the idea is flawless: time means everything and the player always has to be aware. The save system is absolutely perfect, letting players feel comfortable in controlling time but still keeping them on the edge of their seats when things get hairy.

    The distribution of power stars in the levels is horrendous. I think 7 stars in one level is more than enough, don't you think? I understand that there are memory constraints, but there either could have been less stars overall, or 1 (maybe 2) more level(s). Definately a problem.

    To say that EA Sports Big outdid themselves is an understatement. I’ve been playing this game regularly for two weeks, and I’m not even close to completion.

    Unfortunately, the sound is pretty much a mix of "Mario 64" and "Diddy Kong Racing" leftovers. A grunt here, a guffaw there, it's all been done to death.

    It's brilliant and fun turn-based strategy with more replay value than you could possibly ask for. This isn't boring turn-based strategy where you spend 15 turns setting up your troops to fight the inevitable battle, no sir.

    One of the best games on the Gamecube. Everything is fun, and there is never a dull moment.

    The replay value is where this game really suffers. You can only win the championship so many times before you die of boredom, and going through time trials and stunt mode offer no real thrill. 2-player mode is nice, but is still rather monotonous, going through the same courses time after time.

    It must be understood that the 9 you see on the right in the Overall category of the review scores is a qualified 9. It's the highest possible 9 that can be given, mere micrometers away from a 10.

    An amazing number of modes, a superb physics engine, a natural learning curve and some exciting multiplayer are all par for the course (sorry, so sorry). To put it succinctly, Nintendo does it again.

    Quite simply, it's a game you have to play if you like playing games. Its combination of old and new school elements make Rayman 2 a breath of fresh air in the flood of titles released this holiday season. Don't miss it.

    Rewarding gameplay, extremely deep control mechanics, beautiful graphics and sheer gameplay variety are just some of the elements that make this game a triumph.

    A refreshing aspect of Blast Corps is that it involves replayability within the game. Once you finish a level the first time, you need to go back and finish it again and again.

    You're looking at the box art for Beetle Adventure Racing while viewing it on a store shelf or in a glass case. You decide that it looks a little childish, so you might pass it up for some other racer. Stop. That would be the single biggest mistake you've made in your entire gaming life.

    Those that have yet to experience RE2 are missing out. Especially those in love with Acclaim’s Shadowman should appreciate this game. It’s a mature game with visuals to rave about and game play not far behind.

    The things that irked me did so to such a degree that I could never get comfortably lost in the game, and I'm pretty much finished playing it. Nevertheless, in the grand scheme of things, the tremendous amount of options and possibilities available would make it very hard to give this game a bad rating.

    Mahvelous. Those graphics are freakin' mahvelous.

    The additions that have been made to streamline the control and beef up the single player experience are simply the best improvements that could have been made without totally reinventing the series (which, frankly, no one does for sequels anymore). The game can be repetitive, but the feeling may be inevitable for hardened veterans of the streetball circuit.

    Though it tries to be Kiddy Kong, Diddy Kong Racing is not a kiddie game. This is challenging, full blown racing at its best.

    It's the shoot 'em up of shoot 'em ups. Star Fox 64 shouldn't be seen as a sequel to the SNES Star Fox, however. It's more of a director's cut to an old, great film.

    Playing this game requires a fair amount of patience, because the hasty gamer will only wind up losing members, and even the best tactician will have to play certain levels more than once.

    Wonderfully balanced.

    After the very enjoyable Turok Dinosaur Hunter the first outing in the series, Turok 2 has officially killed what could have been a great series. It's hard to have fun playing a game where you have to sit still to have any remote chance of hitting your target.

    This is quite possibly the best racing game I've ever played. It doesn't have the glitz of some other racing games, but it has one thing that's been sorely neglected. Speed. Lots of speed.

    Rogue Squadron is definitely one of the shining examples of what the N64 can do. The graphics in this game will change the way you look at your N64. Great graphics, great sound, fun gameplay....what else can you ask for?

    This game has some serious replay. With all the hidden secrets and the pieces of the Chronoscepter (I hope I spelled that right) to find, you'll be playing this game for quite awhile.

    An incredible sports game, adding up to one of the best (if not the best) the sports genre has ever seen.

    The gameplay of WipeOut 64 is really just classic WipeOut. There are no big innovations here, but that still doesn’t stop this game from being one of the top racing games out there.
