Nintendo 64 is a game machine that easily divides game players. As early as 1996 (or launched in 1997 in the PAL region), as the gaming industry’s livelihood shifted from sprites to polygons, the console represented-from a certain point of view-Nintendo really gave up the ball for the first time. Tired of the license terms of platform holders, many developers switched to Sony’s PlayStation, attracted by fairer deals and cheaper CD media. At the same time, Nintendo has redoubled its efforts on an esoteric hardware with confusing, child-like controllers that can be said to be out of sync with the mature audience of the game.
On the other hand, for many gamers, N64 evokes some of our warmest and strongest gaming memories.While waving the three-pronged pad of this console, many of us took the first step to enter the 3D Mushroom Kingdom or Hailaru, and the unparalleled excitement of the 4-person split screen Mario Kart or Golden eye Like some other multiplayer gaming experiences, we keep it in mind.

Publisher: Nintendo / Developer: media
This N64 port of the first entry in the Blizzard franchise was a surprisingly good version of the RTS title, which at the time was not natural or easy to fit into the console. The developer Mass Media Inc. has done an admirable job on this port and managed to package the split-screen multiplayer game mode (if you have an expansion pack). Starcraft 64 In addition to the Brood War expansion pack, it also includes some additional tasks that allow Nintendo gamers to get a glimpse of PC classics on their TVs.

Most people who have played Beetle adventure racing! Back to the day may have low expectations, but from Paradigm Entertainment, a studio that worked with Nintendo Pilot’s Wings 64 And also made an excellent F-1 World Grand Prix The game on the system-this is a fun, beautifully constructed small car, it is worth reviewing.

Demolition Corps This includes clearing a path to a safe detonation zone for a slow-moving truck carrying a malfunctioning nuclear missile, which is blocked by buildings and other mature destructive structures. Like many 64-bit games, its early polygonal visual effects can now be said to look a bit stubborn, but don’t let its appearance disappoint you. This incredibly stupid concept became one of the most interesting games on N64.
An underrated entry in the Rareware library, Jet Force Gemini Combine the cute design with the clumsy third-person blasting to defeat the insect overlord Mizar in the world jump mission. The adventures of Juno, Vela, and the trustworthy good boy Lupus are not without flaws, but JFG is a surprisingly deep and satisfying adventure. If you are a rare fan looking for gems that have passed by around the millennium, Then it is worth studying.

Turlock 2: Seed of Evil It is a technical demonstration of the system. It took the baton from the very popular first game and raised the stakes in every possible way. Highlights include the 640×480 resolution visual effects driven by Expansion Pak and the iconic Cerebral Bore, which is a gun that fires a brain-piercing bullet once you lock the enemy’s watermelon. Acclaim’s game is now available on the Switch in a remastered form provided by Night Dive Studios, although this version is not equipped with a black ink cartridge.
Publisher: Lucas Art / Developer: Lucas Art
Although this cannot match the F-Zero X in terms of sheer performance, it is still a very impressive car with a progress system that can be purchased with pod enhancements. Based on the best parts of The Phantom Menace (except for the Darth Maul part and all soundtracks), it has a special double-pad mode similar to GoldenEye, which can achieve some double-stick accuracy and more closely reflect the control pods on the screen. Watto’s jokes and interpretation of the Cantina theme after the game are also very good. It can also be used on Switch now.
Some people blame the collapse of the Marathon 3D platform craze on Donkey Kong 64, Although it’s hard to say that Rare may have gone too far on a large number of insignificant collectible doohickeys, this is a game that turns everything into 11, and its unapologetic “more is more” approach makes People admire. There are five playable King Kong (which you are familiar with), a huge world and a wealth of mini-games (including the original arcade Donkey Kong and Rare’s Jet Pacific Airways), DK64 was a very valuable proposition in 1999, and we think that after 20 years of criticism, it may be worth reassessing. Come on grumpy, Bring it to the refrigerator.

Wonderful interpretation of the most popular team sport in the world, International Space Station 64 There are depth, beauty, accessibility and very interesting comments. Not a “good” comment per se, but still interesting.These days FIFA games may retain possession of the ball, but in the 90s Konami was Really On the ball.
Publisher: THQ / Developer: Aki
In the first game released by THQ after it took over the responsibility of the license holder from Acclaim, the loss of WCW was largely a gain of WWF. WWF Wrestling Fever 2000 Expanded AKI WCW/nWo Revenge Since last year, the iconic stables of the stars of the World Wrestling Federation have been introduced at the same time, and the foundation has been laid for the brilliant No Mercy.
Publisher: Midway Games / Developer: Atari
Midway’s Atari Games console port San Francisco Rush 2049 It is the third game in the Rush series. It provides N64 owners with a dose of high-quality future racing cars without having to change the four wheels of the pod or hovering engine. With huge boost friendly jumps, intricate circuits with secret routes and some very interesting physics, the N64 car is nothing more arcade than this.
