NINTENDO 64 (1996-2001)
64-bit muscle with nintendo power
"This is the Nintendogirl!" 'Natilee'
When the Nintendo 64 was released in Japan, it was the fastest selling system ever, selling 500,000units in a month. But it lacked games in the coming months and the Japanese forgot this system when square's FF 7 was released for the PS. In just three months, Nintendo releases the N64 over here, but it's a different story this time. Super Mario 64 wowed everybody and many American Companies (Midway, Lucas Arts) released games for the N64 which kept it alive and selling sometimes better than the rival PS.
The N64 still got hurt by massive delays, Zelda was suppose to come out summer1997 not fall 1998, and 2000 is no exception, Perfect Dark came out May 2000, NOT December 9, 1999 like it was support to. Sadly, Nintendo has no plans to release any new games beyond the second half of 2001 or in 2002. Despites some flaws you won't find better 3D games anywhere else, the N64 kicks a$$ in that department.
System Rating out of 100: 70/100 the new games are quickly running out but there are still 200 games for the system.
