Did You Know?


The game was going to feature cooperative play but the idea wasn't fully implemented. If a player does plug a controller into the second port they can control the camera during the end cut scene and credits. See more »

Mmmmm.. Tasty
11 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most classic and amazing Nintendo 64 game ever!!!!! A must have! if you are a true old Nintendo fan, you own this. And if you don't? Buy it now! Anyone who has anything negative to say about this game can go off themselves. (to put it as nicely as I possibly can). Douche Taco's who talk negatively about this game are just retarded and don't deserve to have hands to play any game at all. This is a classic and very nostalgic. It is just amazing how insanely advanced this game was at its time. People who say stuff about the camera being a little off or the graphics being sorta 'blocky' need to be beat with a bat and then p***ed upon. NO CRAP THE GRAPHICS CAN BE MESSED UP. It was created in 1996 for Christ's sake. It's amazing for that time and it's completely revolutionary (along with Banjo, because that game was awesome as well). I don't know if many people are willing to give this game up though, so if you have a chance, pick it up. Plus, for a child-oriented game, it is pretty tricky! I'll be honest, when I was little I never beat the game. I JUST beat it last year because I dusted off the old Nintendo after rage quitting Call of Duty. GOOD STUFF, A MUST HAVE!
