    This is the crappiest RPG that I have ever played in my life. We all know that the N64 is limited when it comes to RPGs, but it appears that THQ didn't even try to make a decent game.

    The game looks great. Granted, it's not in hi-res mode like its PS2 counterpart, but DC players get on-line play, so nyah, nyah.

    What small scratches dot the surface are allowable, because as an overall package this becomes one of the most worthy and required purchases you could ever make. Whatever you do, don't pass it up.

    Quite possibly is the best N64 game ever. Forget "Golden Eye," "Perfect Dark," and "Zelda"...they don't even compare to Conker's.

    Everything looks rather dated, characters have terribly jointed bodies, the graphics seem washed out, and the animation is pretty stiff in spots.

    What makes the game so visually stunning is the multitude of graphical styles.

    Nothing was done to improve upon the game, and those that want 3D adventure will find much better courts in "Banjo-Tooie" and other games.

    Finally, finally, FINALLY: someone got it right. Infogrames has produced one of the greatest 'Classic' discs in a long time.

    Not a title for all, but those who can appreciate the freedom of building and riding something that they have designed should find countless hours of fun.

    How did I enjoy "OOT," but not MM? Simple, I knew that "Ocarina Of Time" was based almost entirely around the ocarina and the shifting of time, Majora's Mask simply took the 1st idea and exploited the necessity of travel, thus leaving Majora's Mask nothing more than a rehash of the first.

    This is that fresh breath of air that the system needed so badly.

    Beyond the visual feast and a plethora of features and options, Perfect Dark is a soup of gameplay genius beefy enough to eat with a fork!

    The control isn't the easiest to get the hang of, there were times I thought about snapping that little analog stick right off the controller!

    This is one of the first N64 racers where you can actually see down the road a bit. No turns or mountains pop up from nonexistence to halt your speed. The framerate is very smooth and consistent throughout the courses, regardless of how much is going on in the race. Now that's something!

    While it's still not as good or creative as the original Super Mario 64, if there's one true claim to fame it can make, it's that you'll get your moneys worth if you really do try and complete the game 100%.

    Even though it has cheesy voiceovers and story, it can still send chills down your spine. I'd definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes the other Resident Evil games or anyone who's looking for a fun, exciting game.

    Players who have been dazzled by such visually stunning games as "FFVIII," "Legend of Legaia," and "Parasite Eve" will want to look elsewhere for that kind of entertainment. [FFV review]

    My baby, my sweet, precious little FF8. How I love thee, let me tell the ways; Triple Triad, Rinoa, the incrediblly sweet and fresh magic system and Junction, the beyond jaw-dropping FMV's, Rinoa, the biggest surprise Air Ship yet in any FF..

    Warning: Do not take caffeine while in the driver's seat. It may lead to insanity.

    Possibly the best sports title for N64, and one of the best golf games to date. Most gamers and many non-gamers will find much to enjoy in this game if it is given a chance.

    Despite the deep game play, the game life suffers a bit due to the fact that it's a rail-shooter. The tracks are always the same, and your course is always the same. More tracks than the 7 provided would have added some game play length.

    Another thing that I found annoying was the fog effect. I do not know if it is hiding pop-up or setting the mood of the story (which it does an excellent job for since you cannot see 10 feet down the street). I just found it very annoying.

    The one frustrating aspect of the title. The difficulty level. It starts out really easy and progresses to insanely difficult.

    I have never seen a land so desperately in need of a cemetery. A decent game. If you are a fan of the series, definitely pick this one up.

    This is, without a doubt, one of the all-time greatest games made. 50 years from now people will still be playing and enjoying this game... thoroughly.

    If you're a diehard Lara fan, you're going to dig this intense game. But if you haven't experienced Tomb Raider before, be warned that its mind-bending puzzles and tense action will challenge even the most seasoned gamers.

    Before you run down to the store and get your copy, do yourself another favor, get the 4 meg. Ram upgrade as well. You will not regret it. The Hi-Resolution mode in this game is incredible. Awesome.

    If you were a fan of the first game, you are sure to like the new installment.

    Wetrix is one of those rare gems that has no big license, no familiar characters, and no big budget advertising, but if you search for it and find it, will provide you with a very enjoyable, and very original gaming experience. There's nothing watered down about this game.

    The perfect balance of exploration and game play. If you're a big fan of completing games 100%, you'll get every dime's worth out of this purchase.
