SummaryOomba goomba's have never gone out of fashion
The GoodThe jump from Super Nintendo to Nintendo 64 really upped the graphics and when Mario 64 it impressed all Mario fans as well as other gamers. Mario 64 was changed alot from the other Mario brothers, namely the original where you just have to try and get through the level without dying or having your time run out (which rarely happend.) You didn't just have to just get through the level and fight a fake bowser (or a real one) at the end. You actually had to use your brain and collect stars to try and bring the princes back and save the castle. Though obviously the graphics are not anything special today, they were a huge surprise back when the game first came out.
The BadIt might seem like a complaint not worth saying but even though there were alot of Oomba goomba's in Mario 64 there were not many Koopa Troopas and they were pretty much what made up the original Mario (which is what I compare it to.)
The Bottom LineIt is definetly worth playing and I dare say that it could be classed as a classic.
