A mario 64 Hack!

Best one!

This hack let’s you enjoy a 10 new levels,with both Mario and Luigi, new enemies, lots of NPC’s and Final Boss changed!

Now,on the details:

You can choose to play as Mario or Luigi. Luigi model is really nice done. Unfortunately, I didn’t spot any differences between Mario and Luigi. Too bad-Luigi should be jumping higher…

“Super Mario 64: The Missing Stars” introduces you to new gameplay mechanics: You can get transformed into Fire Mario for example. In some levels you need to find some small stars and collect them to form a normal sized star. The really enjoyable thing is a Day-Night cycle. It can change happy stage into a dark and creepy stage in blink of eye! Hacks, of course feed your eyes with some new textures, but there’s not much of it here. Too bad. The really good thing about hack is that it has custom music! You can hear Butter building from Kirby,or Boss theme from Zelda! That rocks, man!

On the bad side… WHY are there only 38 stars? OK, OK I know it’s hard to make new levels, but still… The game is a little short-No, it’s not like it’s short itself, but you want more, and you can get disappointed.

Pluses:

  • You select Mario and Luigi
  • New Powerups
  • Day-Night cycle
  • New Final Boss
  • New music!

Minuses:

  • Not many new textures…
  • There’s no difference between Mario and Luigi
  • Only 38 stars

Partial Score:

  • Gameplay: 10/10
  • Audio: 9/10
  • Video: 3/10

Reviewer’s Score:

Overall: 9.5/10

Recommended - Yes
