Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time (N64)

5.0 out of 5 stars True Legend, 3 Nov. 2008
This is the best game of all time. The plot, graphics and music are beautiful and you will not find a greater game, even if you don't much like fantasy. My favourite genre is definitely platform games (Mario, Crash, Spyro, Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong etc.), but even so I still think Zelda: Ocarina of Time is better. If you haven't got this game, buy it (but not on the Wii Virtual Console). If you don't have an N64 I would buy one purely to play this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stick to Spyro on the PS1, 3 Nov. 2008
I really don't know what happened when this game was made. After the first three hugely successful PS1 Spyro games, I was looking forward to this so much... and what a massive let-down. The whole game is full of bugs so it glitches all the time, the story is uninteresting, the graphics are poor and ultimately, it tarnishes Spyro's reputation. Steer clear of this one, and if you bought this game having never played Spyro before, please don't let it influence your opinion - buy the classic ones, and leave the PS2 games alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Spyro Game, 3 Nov. 2008
This is the last great Spyro game, following the continual flops of the PS2 editions, and is definitely worth buying if you like a solid platformer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Crash game by a mile, 1 Nov. 2008
The title of this review says it all. You're not a true Crash fan unless you have played this game. Naughty Dog has taken the best of Cortex Strikes Back and produced a better storyline, better graphics, better music, and better gameplay. The new relic component is very good and is addictive, especially as it is almost impossible to get platinum times on most levels.
Each level is funny and different and it does not get at all repetitve, giving this game amazing replay value - I have owned this game for about 8 years and have completed it many times, and I still find myself starting all over again as if I have never played it before.
As with the other Crash games, the graphics are not as good as Nintendo, but they are bright and good enough for you not to bother when you are playing.
This is the best platformer ever released on the Playstation. Enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crash Bandicoot 2, 1 Nov. 2008
Crash is one of the icons of the Playstation, as is Mario to the Nintendo or Sonic to the Sega. The first game was great, but a bit rough and ready and was not quite the finished product (with problems such as the dire saving system). This sequel has ironed out those creases and set the tone for the Crash Bandicoot franchise. Whereas Crash Bandicoot 1 was more of a traditional platformer, following a quite strict linear pattern, Cortex Srikes Back is not so restricted because of the new warp room format and more roaming gameplay, and the game is better for that. Also collecting gems has been made a lot easier as it doesn't matter if you lose a life during a level, you can still get the gem. Naughty Dog have returned to sanity and introduced a normal saving system (thank goodness), so no worries about not completing that daft bonus level here (apologies to anyone who hasn't played the original and doesn't know what I'm talking about).
The graphics could be better, and are inferior to Nintendo's wonderfully colourful creations, but the pros of this game considerably outweigh the cons and your Playstation isn't complete without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the N64 classics, 31 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Banjo-Kazooie (N64) (Video Game)
If you like traditional platforming games, then you must get this game if you haven't already. Banjo-Kazooie is as good as Super Mario 64, but contrary to popular opinion it is not just jumping on the Mario bandwagon - it can easily hold its own as one of the best games for the N64. The story is basically a spoof of Snow White: during the first cutscene Gruntilda the witch looks into her Magic Mirror and discovers that Tooty, Banjo's small sister, is prettier than she. Determined to be the prettiest of them all, she kidnaps Tooty so she can steal her beauty and make Tooty ugly.
Banjo-Kazooie is typical of all the Rare games because it is full of humour; don't be fooled into thinking it is just a kid's game because of the bright colours and childish storyline (not to say that it is unsuitable for children). The gameplay is complicated but it does not become repetitive or boring due to the diversity of the tasks in the game, however if you don't like collecting a lot of items (and this is a major component) you may end up rushing through and then not being able to progress much further. All in all, there is a lot to do and this game will last you a good 50-60 hours of gaming.
The graphics are colourful and the textures seamless, and the music is especially good because it is one of the first games to seamlessly incorporate different tunes depending on where you are in the game (for example if you approach an enemy).
This is a good, clean, fun game for all the family (which isn't code for "actually very boring"). It is truely one of the Nintendo classics, especially as Rare managed to pull off an equally successful sequel, Banjo-Tooie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diddy Kong Racing = Definitely Not A Mario Kart Rip-Off, 23 Oct. 2008
For anyone who has played Mario Kart 64 and not Diddy Kong Racing 64, the two games are very different. Sure, you race in karts and use powerups; but although I love Mario and thoroughly enjoyed playing Mario Kart as a child, Diddy Kong has so much more substance. The gameplay is a lot more detailed and challenging, whereas Mario Kart is very easy and you easily become bored with the single player mode. DK racing is, in essence, a racing game combined with a platformer, and is so much more fun playing as a single player because of this.
The graphics of this game are typical of the N64: simple but colourful and pleasing to the eye. The sound, again, is very N64: cute but repetitve, and the music can become slightly annoying if you are struggling to complete a challenge.
Overall, anyone who likes the old-school style of games such as Mario, Banjo-Kazooie etc. should definitely get this game if you haven't already. It is not an N64 classic, but it is close.
