Advantages: Great Gameplay, Great Graphics, has a good set of music and sound effects
Disadvantages: No Disadvantages to this game, except lack of multiplayer.
Well what can i say, this game was a hit when it first hit the stores. This was the game that made the N64 famous. Luckily it was the consoles first game.
This game has great graphics for a N64 game, especially an early N64 game. Plus features a very large variety of levels, a total of 15 courses each being very large in size, and having secrets of its own. This game will keep you busy for a long time, probably one of the longest lasting games you can get on the N64. Even now, several years on from when i originally played it, i still get great enjoyment out of trying to achieve 100% completion, which is no easy task. Sure it's relatively easy to beat the final boss, but after that there's still a lot more needed to be done. You'll need to collect all the stars, each of the 15 courses containing 7 stars each. As well as unveiling the castles secrets.
I have very little to say against this game, it has great graphics, great gameplay, and won't get repetitive either. The only thing this game lacks is multiplayer, but it really doesnt need it, and to be honest, it would probably hinder the single player side of the game if the developers did decide to include a co-op or battle mode to the game. On the whole its a very solid game, with no bugs as far as i know, this game was made to perfection, and got the N64 off to a good start. Its a shame games like this weren't produced for it later on in the consoles life.
Donkey Kong 64, a game released much later on in the N64's life was very similar to this game, but with much improved graphics. Although it still doesnt quite match up to this game.
Summary: Really good game, definitely worth the £5 you will spend on it, thats cheap for a N64 game.
