The fun machine

With the 64-bit power of the Nintendo 64, players can explore breathtaking 3D worlds that explode with colour, dance with real-time lighting effects, and light up your ears with CD-quality sound.

Quadruple the fun

The Nintendo 64 was designed as a party machine, with four controller ports just begging to be filled. Get together with three friends and experience how astounding games like Mario Kart 64, Mario Party, and Donkey Kong 64 can blossom into laugh-a-minute multiplayer gameplay marathons.

Fantastic colours

A line-up of seven stunning, semi-transparent colours – blue, green, orange, purple, red, black, and clear blue – plus a plain black Nintendo 64, an exclusive Pokémon Special Edition that's coloured yellow and blue and features a great big Pikachu on the top, and, released only as part of the Super Mario 64 pack, a stunning turquoise and eggshell console – take your pick.

Game Boy Color link-up

With the aid of the Transfer Pak (sold separately), the Nintendo 64 can communicate with Game Boy Color games like Pokémon Gold/Silver and Mario Golf. Depending on the game, you'll be able to exchange data, unlock secrets and minigames, and even play your Pokémon titles up on the big screen!

The controller

Breaking new ground in input device design, Nintendo devised the first analogue control stick for the Nintendo 64 controller, blessing gamers with complete 360-degree control of every game. The unique three-pronged design moulds perfectly into your hand, and 13 other buttons – including a handy Z button below centre – round off this pioneering package.

Super Mario 64

Game library

Over the years, the Nintendo 64 has become the natural home for instant A-grade classics. From the world-changing Miyamoto launch title Super Mario 64 to the immersive The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, this console's collection of over 300 games has sheer quality running right through it. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Mario Tennis, Mario Kart 64, Donkey Kong 64, Paper Mario, GoldenEye 007 – the list is almost endless, and takes in every single game genre.

Expansion Pak
Expansion Pak. view larger

Expansion Pak

Selected Nintendo 64 titles pump out bigger, better, brighter visuals when the Expansion Pak is slotted into the top of the system. But that's only half the story. This tiny slab of miracle technology adds 4 MB of memory to the Nintendo 64, which developers can exploit in exciting ways aside from improved graphics, including more massive levels, more intelligent enemies, and crisper sound.

Controller Pak
Controller Pak. view larger

Controller Pak

Most Nintendo 64 games save your progress straight to the Game Pak, but others require the use of this clever piece of plastic and metal, the Controller Pak. It's not just a must for some titles, as it can also be used as an optional extra for saving race replays and high scores, then re-loading the data onto a friend's Nintendo 64. A Controller Pak has room for 123 'pages' of save game data.

Transfer Pak
Transfer Pak. view larger

Transfer Pak

As the name suggests, the Transfer Pak allows data, high-scores, characters, and other data to be transferred between your Game Boy Color Game Paks and Nintendo 64. There's little that beats the thrill of transferring your Pokémon from Game Boy to Nintendo 64 and cheering them on as they clatter with friends' monsters in breathtaking 3D. Magic! Compatible games: Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, Mickey's Speedway USA, Pokémon Stadium/Stadium 2, Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crystal.

Rumble Pak

Rumble Pak

Another groundbreaking (and hand-shuddering) first from Nintendo. Slot the Rumble Pak into the back of the Nintendo 64 controller and you'll feel the power of the console. Compatible games deliver signals to the Rumble Pak, which sends a small motor inside crazy, jiggling the Rumble Pak and the whole joypad in your hand. The bigger the on-screen event, the stronger the sensation, and you only need two AAA batteries for around 50 to 60 hours of force feedback fun.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nothing can beat the classics. Graphics power and sound quality and HD may be the new era but nothing can live up to the simplicity and the sheer enjoyability that we have came to know as the N64. When i first went to my cousins house, he had this console and at the time it was like the XBOX 360 of the era. He had mario kart and i was just blown away. I had to have one of these consoles. I first got my N64 in 1999, and let me tell you, i was so happy that i got it. The controller looked complex at the time because i was used to playing Sega Megadrive, but i soon got used to it. The console looked sleek, it was compatible with a rumble pak, a transfer pak, a memory pak, and an expansion pak.

The best titles that i owned at the time and i recommend them to all of you hardcore gaming fans who like to live the retro style are Donkey Kong 64, Zelda ocarina of time, Mario Kart 64, Spuer Mario 64, Super Smash Bros, Lylatwars, Perfect Dark, 007 Goldeneye and much more

This game was and still is, the ultimate console in its era and just brings back so many memories of all those sleepless nights and long days staying inside. N64 is what a console is all about. Ill recommend this to everyone.

Verified Purchase
The game arrived on time and it was accurately described. I believe that the price for the item was very reasonable because of it's condition and the fact that it came with an extra game. The seller wanted me to be happy with my product and e-mailed me to check that everything was in good working order!

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Brilliant 19 Sep 2001
By A Customer
The nintendo 64 is a brilliant peice of gaming hardware. It boasts hundreds of games for all players, althogh i beleive its main brilliance is in it's multi-player games such as: Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, The World is not Enough, Super smash brothers, Turok, or Mario Kart 64...
The games machine also excells in other games such as Zelda as it is superb for the role playing gamers or maybe you prefer 1st person messy shooters like Perfect Dark or may be for people who like scary games there is Resident Evil 2 or for people who...............
In a nutshell the N64 shows amazing graphics and next to no loading times,Pure 100% Brilliance!!!!!

Great service, arrived exactly when expected and Chilledout games were nice enough to email me before they sent it off giving me a chance to change my mind. The console works perfectly, there are a few scratches but nothing serious and it's not like you can get a N64 brand new. I'm very happy with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars N64 20 Nov 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brought my N64 in Japan, a good 6 months before it was released here, the games i got where in Japanese so took a while learnig what bits meant, the console is still going strong and is often taken out of the cupboard when the chaps come around. Still makes you feel like a love lost teenager agaion, still plays like a new system and has now started to become quite "collectable" for hard core gamers whom wish to get systems that reached a bench mark in console history. If you are offered one at a great price, then rip the sellers arm of. Zelda, Super Mario World and of course Golden Eye are the best ones to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could it be we love it more than ever? 28 Feb 2008
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I suppose it's hard to review the N64 looking back. Now that technologically, it's been super-seeded many times over, one thing that modern consoles over the past 5/6 years have lacked are ground-breaking titles. With this in mind... just how many did the N64 produce?

Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Mario Karts, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo and Kazooie, Mario Party 1, Super Smash Brothers... all these titles most of us, N64 owners, bought or played on.

In fact, it has to be said that the N64 produced the 'most' amount of ground-breaking titles we've seen on a console to date. It's not because the producers tried any harder or any less harder, it was because the ideas were new and fresh. What's more, none of these games in question relied soley on graphics. Any N64 owner will tell you that they could own just 2 of those titles, and still be playing on them for years to come.

But the N64 offered something incredibly vital that the Playstation didn't, and current gen consoles don't now. And that's the ability to have up to 4 players playing at one. It was almost as if the console was made for multiplayers, as most of my memories are staying up late playing with friends, as fellow owners will tell.

Perhaps this is where gaming has wrong now. It relies too heavily on sole enjoyment and escapism through personal 'mission' like chores rather than a social gathering. Did we care that the soliders on Goldeneye had square hands? Nah - we were all too busy laughing and having a good time. That's what gaming should be all about.

Thankfully, the Wii is a somewhat tribute to Nintendo's history. Not only can up to 4 players still play a game (not including online!) but with the Virtual Console option, we can download old N64 games and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars This console still stands out today. 26 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Nintendo 64 was the first console I bought with my own money (I'm talking about 1998). I still remember saving up loads of pocket money for this, and only managing to buy the console which came with one remote (those awesome remotes!) and no game. The first time I saw the N64 was at a friend's house, he had imported it from the USA. Just the shape of it gave me goose-bumps! The fact it had 4 ports for remotes allowing 4 people to play simultaneously was the most attractive aspect of it, until I saw the graphics on Mario Kart 64! We played for hours, non-stop, and I yearned for the console to be on sale in Europe so I could get my hands on one. My first game was FIFA 64. Legendary. I do not want to think of how many hours I spent exploring games on the N64, and how I NEVER got tired of playing games on it. Wave Race 64, Blast Corps, Mario 64, Golden Eye, Perfect Dark, and few more (I had almost 20 games).

But the day came when for an array of reasons I gave my N64 away to a dear friend, as I knew he'd take good care of it. I still regret that decision, as he then gave it to a friend a year later and I never saw it again. The value THAT N64 had for me is infinite, as it represents MY first console, and the console that brought so many endless and memorable nights of fun with friends, especially on Golden Eye and Mario Kart!

I own a wii now, and am a very happy owner of a collection of classic games, including N64 games. Nintendo really has managed to get the leading edge over its competitors (xbox and sony) who only focus on graphics. Still, the wii experience is not quite the N64 experience and I don't know why... maybe it's the classic wii remote not being the same as the AWESOME N64 control, or maybe it's the novelty of the N64 games that has faded away with the years... either ways, N64 will remain in my memory as the best console to date, especially as the one that marked a new era in consoles, more importantly in multiplayer fun!
