Super Mario 64 DS Review

Super Mario 64 DS

Story: 7/10

There isn't really a story line with lots of cut scenes to follow, but you do get the occasional note from the princess saying how you're progressing. Plus, it's a complete remake with added bonuses. You can Play as either Mario, Luigi, Wario, or Yoshi! You start off at the beginning as Yoshi, and he cant find Mario or the rest of the gang. Your camera guy tells you that they have been in the castle for a long time. Yoshi sets off to find your story begins. Also, it would appear that bosses have this thing about mustaches.

Graphics 10/10

Everyone loves graphics these days. Let me tell you...SM64DS has superb graphics! Running at 15 FPS (frames per second) it has better graphics than its original N64 counter part! Mario and the gang are smooth, and are really well detailed. They even have their mustaches silky smooth.

Efficiency: 10/10

The top screen is where most of the action takes place. This is where you see Mario and the gang kicking butt and taking numbers. The bottom screen is your map, which is VERY helpful for finding that star that you can't seem to locate. You can also use the bottom screen to move Mario around and stuff using your stylus or thumb strap.

Sound: 5/10

Eh, same music as the original, but with a few new tunes. Nothing worth noting here.

Replay Value: 10/10

Once you unlock all 150 stars, you open up a cannon that can shoot you to the top of the castle, where you can dawn a wing cap and fly around the castle grounds! Its fun to crash into the wall and my opinion anyway. Also, Nintendo has added in a HUGE collection of brand new mini games that are specially designed for you to use your stylus and gain the high
score! They've kept me entertained for who knows how long!

Over All: 8.5/10

A must have game for any DS owners, but most of ya'll probably got that as your first game to begin with. I got mine three days after Thanksgiving, and I collected my last power star on Christmas Eve. It's alot easier than the original, but its great to have such a huge success of a classic on the DS!
