Super Mario 64 takes the lovable plumber and throws him into a whole new 3D world. This game is different than those before it in that you get to choose what levels you play, instead of basically being on railroad tracks and only going where you're told. There's also a huge array of puzzles, secrets, and awesome power ups to keep you entertained for hours and hours.
Pro It's a spirited, cheerful game that's perfect for all ages
The levels and areas in Super Mario 64 capture the light-hearted feeling that we've come to know and love from Mario games. There are lovable characters, entertaining interactions, and ridiculous missions that have made many players fall in love with this game.
Pro Developed a proper camera and control scheme for 3D games
3D games prior to Mario 64 were somewhat all over the place with their control schemes, and game developers were still struggling to use the third dimension they now had access to. SM64 is a freeform game that makes the most of its 3rd dimension with fantastic control and camera orientation that we take for granted these days, but was highly innovative in its own time.
