Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 is one of the greatest games for N64, if I remember correctly it was the first game and is an excellent business card for a console. The first 3D Mario is very creative, has funny stages and cool songs.

The game's story is pretty simple, Princess Toadstool (Peach) invited Mario to eat cake at her castle, but the dangerous Bowser kidnaps the princess, and seal the castle, only with star power you will be able to open the castle stages to reach the dangerous Bowser. As the system's cartridge N64 does not support a lot of memory the story had to be like this.

The graphics are good for the scenery, the castle is very well handled, and the parallel universes even further, but there are many graphic bugs, hurting a bit (sometimes even helping), but even if help is a neglect that could not be left as well. Scour the castle looking for the 120 stars is quite interesting, there are phases that if you do not think straight, you take long to discover the stars. What is fine too is that this simple castle offers passport to "parallel" universes, far from the reality of Peach's castle, entering into a framework you can go into a fortress, or a mountain of snow, even in the way of the rainbow. The enemies here are not much powerful, are highly creative, most do not help as much as help in Super Mario World. The replay of the game is crap because you complete the game with 70 stars, but you need the 120 to zero it, and when you get them you get surprised with a useless bonus.
One nice thing here is that Mario also has expressions and voices that make you cling to the plumber.


The is one of the funniest and enjoyable games I have ever played.
