Mario Golf – Review

Mario Golf is such a surprise that I feared I couldn't write this review and do it justice.

Mario Golf – Consumer Guide

Mario Golf

Game Description: Tee off with Mario and friends in the most entertaining golf game ever to hit the Nintendo 64 system! Taunt your opponents to break their concentration. Place bets in multi-player games and see replays of your best shots. View the detailed terrain from multiple camera angles and earnExperience Points to get to the next course. With 10 different play modes 6 championship courses and up to 14 characters. Golf has never been this much fun!

Mario Golf – Second Opinion

Mario Golf is filled with tons of features and options (Mini-Golf and Get Character modes were my favorites) to the point where the instruction manual seemed more like an encyclopedia of golfing. There's pretty much something for everyone whether you're entertaining a house full of guests who are hard-core gamers or newbies alike, or if you're just going at it solitaire.

Pokémon Pinball

Game Description: Rumble while you ramble in an all new scramble to catch 'em all! Pokémon Pinball challenges Pokémon Trainers with a whole new way to catch all 150 Pokémon. To become the world's greatest Pokémon Trainer, players have to catch and evolve Pokémon by playing pinball. Portable pinball has never been like this, because Pokémon Pinball is the first Game Pak from Nintendo with a built-in rumble feature. As your Poké Ball bounces around the table you'll be able to feel the impact as the cartridge sends jolts through the Game Boy and into your hands. Want the best Pokémon collection around? You'd better have a tight grip.

Pokémon Pinball – Second Opinion

The greatest accomplishment of Pokémon Pinball was that it made me forget I was playing a pinball game. I have never liked pinball games and even after playing Pokémon Pinball, I still don't like them, but I am always happy to pick up Pokémon Pinball. It must be that organic feel to the game that Chi talked about because Pokémon Pinball certainly feels more personal than the mechanical ones.

Pokémon Pinball – Review

After playing the game a while, it's not hard to see why Nintendo transposed the Pokémon franchise to this format. Traditionally, pinball games contain various puzzles in the form of complex mouse trap-like contraptions scattered across the playing board.

Ape Escape

Game Description: In a genre that often lacks originality, Ape Escape shines, as it is one of the most innovative games ever to grace the PlayStation console. Ape Escape is an adventure platformer like no other before it. Your goal is to try to capture as many apes as possible throughout the various levels. Offering some of the best controls ever, Ape Escape utilizes every button and stick on the PlayStation controller. However, don’t think you’ll be getting through this game in a breeze, as many of the levels pose a great challenge.

Ape Escape – Second Opinion

I'm not going dispute Dale or anyone else about how innovative the control scheme is. Ape Escape brilliantly incorporates the Dual Shock controller much the same way Super Mario 64 did with the Nintendo 64 controller, but my praise ends there.

Ape Escape – Review

So here we are with an analog controller with TWO joysticks and a built-in rumble (they call it "vibration") support and a new 3D platformer called Ape Escape. The game was supposed to be launched with the new controller but instead got delayed, so Sony bundled it with the new PlayStation systems and hoped for the best. So here we are half a year later with Ape Escape in hand.
