An unforgettable classic

  • Excerpt: Body Harvest, developed by DMA Design, was originally scheduled to be released alongside the launch of the N64, problems with finding a publisher delayed the game to a 1998 release. The player must take control of Adam Drake, a genetically engineered soldier and the Earths last hope against an invading Alien force.

  • Excerpt: A whole heap of aliens are beaming down to Earth and capturing all the humans in jelly before feeding them to their mother, and if the mother eats enough it turns into a massive alien and will eat even more humans! And, of course, you are the only one who stands in the way and can save Earth! But don't worry because you have plenty of help.
  • Cons: "very long and big"

  • Excerpt: With the almost simultaneous launches of two more next-gen consoles on the immediate horizon, it seems now the N64 will finally bow out from the industry after a relatively unsuccessful (by Nintendo's standards) 4 years of sales in the UK market. However I believe the N64 has been cruelly ignored by many who believe to be one of few blemishes on Ninty's prestigious career in the industry.
  • Cons: "Perhaps too challenging for some"

The most under rated game on the n64

  • Excerpt: The first time people see this game the first thing they say is always along the lines of "Eghhh im not getting this it looks rubbish" Little do they know what a liitle gem this is. Yes the graphics are not very good, but that is for a reason, they are function. This game is vast with a multitude of vehicles, weapons and aliens. The levels reward exploration with lots of hidden secrets such as tanks and bazookas!
  • Pros: Amazingly frantic gameplay, lots to see and do, cool weapons .
  • Cons: Terrible storyline, very basic graphics .

Body Harvest is not too bad a game

  • Excerpt: Vast worlds, big guns and explosions, hundreds of vehicles, gore, rpg adventuring, what more can you want? Well actually, more detailed and more textured terrain, less stiff control and a bit more speed wouldn't go amiss (There's nothing worse than drowning while trying to swim across a one metre gap!) But if you can look past those flaws, you are playing one inventive and thought-provoking game. DMA Design have created one of the most original games in the N64 library.
  • Pros: 50 odd vehicles, atmospheric sound, fairly playable, large playing levels
  • Cons: Foggy backgrounds, slow at times, bland graphics

  • Excerpt: This game is fun to play although it does require some logic.I liked it because its a kind of strategic shoot em up.The range of vehicles is pretty good and the characters add that tiny little something.Even though I did like the game I found it slow moving and at times it got a bit boring, which probably made it better as I thought some alien would pop up behind me at any second.If you like to pump aliens full of lead, like sci-fi games and a bit of strategy, then this...
  • Pros: Interesting play
  • Cons: Slow plot

  • Excerpt: I eagerly anticipated this game for some time, having seen a preview of it in a magazine. I wasn't disappointed at all. The game sees Earth having been plagued for the past 100 years by a race of giant insect-like aliens. The final wave of aliens is about to attack. You play the hero, Adam Drake, who must travel back in time to four points in history, when the Earth was attacked, and prevent the invasion. The plot is good. The graphics are good enough.

  • Excerpt: Body Harvest is a good game despite its age and can be bought cheaply. It has reasonably good graphics and is suitable for gamers of most abilities to play, although the later levels can get quite difficult. The game is set in 2016 AD after a century of alien attacks on mankind. You have to travel back in time to various stages in the past to stop the alien attacks and save the world. There are a lot of different monsters, weapons and vehicles to keep you entertained.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Getting a bit old

Awful graphics.

  • Excerpt: I played this for not too long, just to try and get a feel of the game, to see what it was like. The first thing I noticed was the damn awful graphics which made every thing look really ugly and distorted. It was quite fun to play, and had some quite original ideas. Getting into cars, tanks, motorbikes and fire engines was fun, even though you are twice the size of the cars. There is no multiplayer either, which makes it a drag.
  • Pros: Gameplay .
  • Cons: Graphics .
