  • Excerpt: "Blast Corps was the second game released for the N64 and it is one of the more unique titles in the N64 library. Blast Corps is an interesting one of a kind type of game that had no relation to any former game made by Rare, or for that matter anyone else, and there has never been a game quite like it since.   STORY: 5/10 There is some kind of plot but it's really just more of a premise to set up the action. The background is that ...
  • Pros: Utterly unique gameplaying experience, good range of vehicles, stages and hidden secrets
  • Cons: Can sometimes be repetitive and frustrating

It's A Blast

  • Excerpt: "...is similarly what happened with Blast Corps, a Rare creation. Although it cannot be called ‘the’ best N64 game, it’s one of them! It’s a game that’s not really in people’s minds as a classic game, but it certainly deserves to be. The first thing you’ll notice about this game is how amazingly addictive it is. The main reason for this is it’s simplicity. Simple gameplay is the key to many classics, just take a look at Super Monkey Ball. One of the ...
  • Pros: Addictive Gameplay

Runaway Nuclear Truck seeks Building

  • Excerpt: "...myself in the job of Blast Corps’ designer. I can picture the scene now. Gathered together with the Rare software development team, I attempt to explain the premise of my game: “Well, you see, this nuclear-weapon carrying truck leaks, and so the steering wheel jams, and you have to save the world by preventing any collisions between the truck and buildings.” “And how do you prevent these collisions?” asks the manager. “Simple – you destroy the ...
  • Pros: Fast - paced gameplay, a no - brainer
  • Cons: Can get quite difficult, very addictive

  • Excerpt: "...when you begin to play Blast Corps but soon you'll get the hang of it. The gameply is the major strength of Blast Corps and while the game does have good graphics and sound these don't rally matter because its so fun to play. Smashing down buildings is a satisfying act. Its a shame that this game is aging and but it is showing this when compared to the likes of Turok 2 and more recent N64 releases but for fun and playability this is brilliant. ...

A must have game

17 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "Blast Corps for the N64 is one of the console's many must have games. The game revolves around puzzle solving and frantic blasting action with tons of mini-games on offer. As well as being both instantly accessable and graphically astounding the thing that hits you about this game is its depth, just when you think you've unlocked everything it turns out you have to do it AGAIN but with better times to unlock yet more levels. It is'nt only the wealth ...
  • Pros: looks great, handles well, lots of different vehicles and cars, will last YEARS !
  • Cons: Can be very difficult, too big?

  • Excerpt: "I got this game for a few pound in the bargin bin of Woolworths. However, despite the price and the condition of the box (well, the bits of cardboard it came with) i found this game higly enjoyable. The gameplay itself is simple, if a little unbelieveable. A truck carrying 2 nuclear bombs in on a direct course for home. It will stop for nothing, and the slightest knock will detonate it. Your task, as a team of demolition experts, is to destroy ...
  • Pros: Price .
  • Cons: Graphics and sounds a bit simplistic .

  • Excerpt: "Preconceptions of this game can be easily misleading. How it got into the bargain bin so quickly I will never know, because in my view it is one of the best games still around for the N64. I really like this game, not only because it is original, but also because each of the levels are so different and there are so many things to do within the levels. I would recommend this game to everybody because quite simply, it is brilliant. It is interesting ...

  • Excerpt: "...the N64. It is called Blast Corps, and is very good fun to play. The idea is, you are given a car, of some sort, and your job is to destroy all the buildings in a time limit. Although on the surface, its sounds really dull, it is really a quite addictive game. There is no multiplayer, which is one of its drawbacks, it can get repetitive at times, and the graphics arn't as good as some games out now. Apart from that it is a laugh to play, especially ...

Destruction, driving - and a rewarding game, too.

  • Excerpt: "This is tricky to review. On the one hand, it's a fantastic game - there's no doubt about that. On the other, it's very odd, and not quite for everyone. The plot - at least for the basic levels - is quite simple. There's a runaway nuclear carrier on the loose, and if it hits anything... well, then you've got a nuclear winter on your hands. The solution? Demolish everything in its path, basically. You've got several vehicles, ranging from racers, ...
  • Pros: Original, excellent level design, masses of fun
