5.0 out of 5 stars A Landmark in Platform Games, 16 May 2005
This review is from: Super Mario 64 (Video Game)
It has been over a year or two since i've played on this game, practically i sold it in the end, but looking back it was easily my favourite and to this day i still appreciate the legacy it has left.
The plot was basically like any other Mario game, Princess Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser and is hidden inside one of the paintings in the castle. You can only reach by collecting stars (120 in total, 70 to reach the finale)and defeating the evil Bowser.
Graphics-wise now it seems lame compared the quality we have now, but back then it was splendid, and Mario himself was an instantly likeable character, he ran, he jumped, he spoke with a funny italian accent and above all he was really cute.
What makes it so revolutionary was the gameplay, you got to meet various characters, you went through levels such as haunted houses, deserts and islands in the sky. You could collect different types of power-ups enabling you to fly, become invisible and metallic, it was a joy to play.
Super Mario 64 may be way past its prime now, but one cannot state enough the legacy it has left on the gaming world, cause as far was platform games go, this is made of the stuff only dreams are made of.
