Mario Kart 64 is the 64-bit sequel to one of the best-selling games of the 16-bit era. Mario and his peers race against each other around lap-based tracks, using special items to their advantage. Items of mischief with roots in the Nintendo universe include banana peels, Koopa Troopa shells, ghosts, invincibility stars and more.<br><br>Eight of Nintendo's best-known characters -- Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario and Bowser -- make an appearance in the sequel. Sixteen circuit tracks are divided among four Cups (Mushroom, Flower, Star and Special) and four battle tracks are included, too.<br><br>Mario Kart 64 also features the same gameplay modes as the original. Mario GP, which is for one or two players, pits your character in a series of races against the rest of the computer-controlled field. The VS mode is for two to four players, with no computer competition. Little "kart bombs" populate the track to make things even more interesting. Battle is the famous mode in which two to four players chase each other around a closed arena. <br><br>A Time Trial mode also exists for one player. For the sequel, Nintendo implemented a feature that enables ghost riders of your best races to be saved. Additionally, the go-karts are available in three engine sizes: 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. The engine size affects the speed of the game.<br><br>Peripheral support is available with the Controller Pak and Rumble Pak. The game does contain a built-in EEPROM chip to save your options and your best times, but an entire Controller Pak is required to save two ghost riders from the Time Trial mode. Less

KOEI's first game for the Nintendo 64 has you playing the role of Jean-Luc Cougar, an operative working for an independent government agency called the Strategic Covert Actions Team (or "S.C.A.T" for short). The story involves a terrorist group called the Crying Lions, who are oh-so-close to taking over the entire world. <br><br>In their power is a satellite that can pinpoint specific targets across the globe. Now the terrorists have taken over one of only two buildings that can activate it! If they are not stopped in time, the world as we know it will cease to exist. As a highly regarded S.C.A.T. agent trained in the art of espionage, you are responsible for taking back the base and regaining control of the satellite. You must not fail!<br><br>WinBack: Covert Operations is a third-person shooter that emphasizes stealth over fast-paced action associated with traditional games in the genre. While some of the weapons at your disposal include a handgun, sub-machine gun, and shotgun, you will also have access to such items as C-4 explosives, C-4 detectors, flashlights, and medical kits.<br><br>Although the single-player game involves infiltrating a base and taking out the terrorist threat, WinBack: Covert Operations also features six multiplayer modes that support up to four players simultaneously: Death Match, Lethal Tag, Cube Hunt, Quick Draw, Team Battle, and Point Match. Other features include multiple difficulty levels (easy, normal or hard), Rumble Pak support and a Tutorial Mode to help players learn the controller functions. Less

    Is is possible to have too many good Mario games?

    Pros Great graphics and controls
    Cons Average sound
    Recommended it? Yes

    Mario Kart 64 could possibly be called the most popular Nintendo 64 racing game. Of course Nintendo is the company responsible for unleashing the character Mario, and Mario has proved to bring great success to Nintendo. There is just something about this short, plump, Italian guy that we all love... Read full review »

    Cons not for older children
    Recommended it? Yes

    It seems like I am the only one over the age of 8 who likes this game. I love it. It is a simple game with much repetition that is what I like in a video game.

    This fun game has great graphics. The music is not annoying to listen to. There are even a few secrets. It is a 2-D game. If you... Read full review »

    Pros Some great movie type moments
    Cons Some laborious levels
    Recommended it? Yes

    There's been a lack of decent third person sneak em ups on the Nintendo 64. And I've been waiting to play that Metal Gear Solid type of game on my Nintendo 64 since I first played the excellent PlayStation title. So when I first heard of Winbacks existence I couldn't wait to play it. However... Read full review »

    Winback: Covert Operations

    Pros Solid controls, good cover system in play, fun gameplay 
    Cons Feels a little generic at times, auto aim = easy, horrible melee combat
    Recommended it? Yes

    There are a ton of games on the N64, over 300, but only a handful of shooting games. And from that handful, about half of them are worth playing. It just happens that Winback: Covert Operations is one of those games, with excellent gameplay that was really developed at its time and still plays... Read full review »
