"Wave Race 64" is a racing video game. It was first released for the Nintendo 64 in 1997 by Nintendo. In the United States, the game received a guidance rating of "K-A" which deemed it appropriate for all ages. Ranked as one of the top 200 games ever released for the Nintendo platform by its brand magazine "Nintendo Power", Wave Race 64 puts the player at the helm of a jet ski in the midst of a racing tournament. Like most racing games the objective is to reach the finish line in the shortest period of time. As an additional measure to this requirement, players must also weave through a series of floating buoys. These items serve ... Read the complete review

Well i received this game earlier today, i played it and quickly completed the Normal championship which is 6 races long, without difficulty, winning 5 of the 6 races, and i thought, well this game is easy. Then i moved onto the Hard championship, the first 3 races i placed 3rd,2nd,3rd, and i fell into 2nd in the championship standings, on the 4th race i really messed it up and went head on into a wall, dropping me about 10 seconds behind the racer in 3rd, hence the N64 console was turned off. But enough of that, lets discuss the actual game now, for a start, the physics are excellent, you can tell the developers took their time designing the way the waves ... Read the complete review

Take a Mario Kart 64, a pinch of the chill out room in Mau Mau Barcalona, a cold shower, a bunjee jump and an addiction that keeps you up all night and you have Wave race 64!! Most racing games I play I like but this one is the next best thing to the real thing! The graphics and playability of this game are hard to beat but why?? Skimming across the water at 50 MPH using the joy to balance your weight is why. Once you have understood the dynamics of this creature you realise that slammin corners is never going to win you the race. Carving and weight distriution do. Using the beautifully rendered waves do. Understanding the sea . . is the key ; ) There ... Read the complete review

Wave Race 64 is a game that I don't recall playing back in my N64 playing years, when the chance came recently to give it a spin, I thought why not! It's the closest thing I'll get to jet skiing this winter probably, the race is high-speed and fun with waves and conditions varying to alter your approach. There are 4 racers to choose from, I opted for the fattest and quickest who is supposedly hard to handle but apart from one race where I failed to finish and was forced in to retirement, I didn't really find this was the case! The courses are fun and reasonably different, the problem is that the championship mode is fairly easy to complete, there ... Read the complete review

Wave Race was introduced to the public as one of the Nintendo 64's launch titles. Launch titles make and brake machines, and so a primary objective for companies is to only release a machine when it has a suitable amount of good titles to back it up and show it off. To this extent I think Wave Race succeeds and fulfills its role perfectly. The graphics are crisp and precise, and above all the racing action is good fun. Deciding to tackle one of the computor games worlds tricky aspects was, I assume, a make or beak decision for the machine. For Water, that moves fluidly, laps up on shores, crashes down in waves, and is in constant motion, had never really ... Read the complete review
