Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 September 2020
I recently found my old N64 in the attic and plugged it into my large flat screen TV, the original N64 was made for much much smaller screens …it looked terrible. So I can attest to recent 1st hand experience that they have smooshed the graphics and it looks great on a big flat screen TV. Sunshine looks incredible but the GC was so ahead of it’s time (GC emulators are very thin on the ground and need a pretty powerful PC to run) Galaxy looks the same (it wasn’t that long ago) …BUT lets talk changes (and the no changes)…

Not changed: The camera on Mario64 still sucks balls, it was always dreadful, I’m sure a Nintendo Elf could have sprinkled some magic code and got the thing to work, but no it still wobbles about managing to always be in exactly the wrong place.

Changed: And now the ultimate sin which won’t bother many people so I doubt it will get patched. They have inverted the controls which means they are now ‘normal’ and there is no menu to change. The original Nintendo games always had inverted controls and I think this influenced me in looking for the ‘invert Y’ part of the menu in every game I have played since. I’ve played Sunshine for a while now and I am okay with the controls until I’m under pressure then muscle memory kicks in and I’m squirting water at the floor. So please Nintendo I love you please can I have a ‘invert Y’ in the menu (put it in the one on the – button so you won’t have to do any fancy design)

They are stone cold classic games Mario 64 despite the camera is one of my favourite games of all time and it plays will on the switch. Sunshine looks incredible and is just as unrelentingly tough as I remember (those void levels are pure rage quit inducing evil ..but fun). TBH I’ve not played Galaxy other than opening up the 1st galaxy just to have a look as it didn’t have the same nostalgic pull as the other 2. It’s a good enough port, it’s a shame they didn’t fix more than bad grammar (They have got rid of the charming SHINE GET! Why?) and inappropriate language (so long gay Bowser)

If they patch the inverted controls I’ll give it 5!
