Super Mario 64 DS (DS)
Advantages: Great level design, engaging story, loveable characters.
Disadvantages: Little to no replay value.
Super Mario 64 DS is a very fun game whether you're young, old, or very old! It takes the original game and revamps it, taking the fun original game and bringing it back and making it portable as well as adding addicting mini games.
I originally got this game back in 2008, but I can say that it still holds up nicely as I have memories of playing with my cousins in multiplayer minigames. I really love this part of the game, it definitely matches up with quality of the main story. But anyway,
The main part of the game, the Super Mario 64 part is basically the old N64 game except brought to the DS. There are only a few differences, but they're so subtle you'll feel like you'll playing it on your N64 again. As far as the actual game itself, you mostly play as mario in a 3rd person perspective trying to save princess peach. You pick up various hats, abilities and get stars. Each painting you find, is usually a level (with exceptions) and you jump in it to go to it. Inside each level are roughly 7 missions with boss fights everynow and then. It's basically the same plot to every mario game there's every been in a sense. ;-D
I would say there's at least a solid 10 hours of gameplay in this game. You'll love to hear Mario go "yah" "yahoooooo" or explore the various landscapes and new enemies to fight.
Plus, those very fun minigames. It almost is like Mario Party, and your friends don't even have to own the game to play it with you. (They of course have to own a DS though.) One of them that is my favorite, for example, is one like Othello (the board game), except with up to four people! It's also fun whether and playing with yourself, or two or more people, for sure!
The only thing is, if you beat the main story and want to replay it, it tends to get very boring, or at least that's what I thought. It may be a good idea to rent this game for a week or so, or buy it, then sell it.
I recommend this to anyone who's looking to expand their collection of DS games, or people who just love mario. It's certainly still a great game as it was when it first came out on the N64. As I said, it's great for all ages, and is tons of fun.
Summary: There's something in this game for everyone.
