Great Mario Game to kick-off the N64!

The Good

Another save Princess Toadstool game, but this time in 3-D, much longer and much more challenging. With terrific music and extremely hard, but still fun, this game delivers! Go around and jump in paintings to collect Stars. There are 6 stars in each painting. There are four floors in the game and you must fight Bowser a total of three times. Very exciting, with lots of fun challenge's and tricky areas.

The Bad

The majority of the enemies were really easy to kill. At places it gets really frustrating when you must to something absolutely perfect or you die or have to try again. And, mainly, the camera sucked. Like, sometimes, like on the second Bowser level, it showed a box that you were in instead of you and it doesn't move all the way around, only 180 degrees, so sometimes you can't get the angle that you want, which is dumb. Also, the graphics are good but nothing compared to Mario Kart, which was released 6 months later.

The Bottom Line

A fun Mario Game, despite the bad camera work.
