Though there are a couple neat effects I'm just not that impressed with the graphics. Racing
against the computer is a real yawner, too. But this is yet another N64 game that really shines
in four-player mode. Maybe not enough to justify purchase since there's not that much variety, but
this makes a fantastic rental.
The U.S. release of Treasure's Yuke Yuke Trouble Makers. Incredible special effects but
the graphics don't appeal that much, and the gameplay is merely good rather than great. (C'mon,
this is Treasure we're talking about here!) Also way too easy. A must-rent but don't buy.
Where are the awesome soundtrack and alluring challenge of the original? Even the expert mode
is just too easy. The new vehicles aren't too bad but I'd rather stay in the Arwing. At least the
four player mode makes up for all this. It's sheer barrel-rolling, loop-de-looping madness, and a
hell of a lot of fun (though there should be more arenas).
Like any other Mario game it's fun to explore the first time through and from then on it
gathers dust on my shelf. You'll spend many, many hours finding every nook and cranny
of the 15 huge (and beautiful) courses. And though it's difficult to navigate like any 3D game,
Mario makes it simpler than any other. But "addictive" is the very last word I would use to
describe it. A must-see for anyone, but adrenaline freaks needn't bother with purchasing it.
Features some neat special effects and some nice scenery. The enemies move very realistically,
too (except for the fact that they spend more time running around than shooting at you). But it
lacks the awesome enemy AI and cool gameplay of Doom, and overall it's just another pretty face.
