Summary: I was excited about this game just like everyone else with a gamecube and immediately ran out, stuffed my £40 over the counter, took it home and shoved it into my gamecube with high expectations of another Mario 64. Boy was I wrong.
Summary: The grahics are brilliant but the gameplay is just the same as Mario64. Secondly Fluud IS the only difference between these games. And thridly do ot buy this game if you are expecting something different, yes its fun like all Mario games but its so boring and believe me you wont get all 120 shines.
Average platforming action, made worse by stupid mistakes

Summary: Well Mario is back. But unfortunately, the game just doesn't live up to expectations. Mind you, I guess it never could. The main problem with this game is that it just feels rushed, and as if the makers have slapped together the last half of the game because they needed a quick release.
Excerpt: Efter att ha spelat "Mario 64" som kom till Nintendo 64 som är en av mina favoritspel så såg jag verkligen fram emot det här spelet. Snyggare grafikn och ljud var ju garanterad, så vad kunde bli fel? Mycket tyvärr. Det här spelet förlitar sig på evig repetition som gjorde mig trött på att spela det.
