Battletanx is a pretty good singleplayer game too, so long as you get the control layout right. Bad controls make it unplayable.

I really really liked Mario Party 1, with friends that was the best fun. I wish it was released on the virtual console, but nope they skipped it and went straight to 2.

Also original Smash.

Tried to play it. Never could.
Bought a copy from a game store and it froze up, they swapped it. The new one froze up too. The next one too.
I just gave up eventually. I should probably grab another copy one of these days.

I believe Space Station Silicon Valley has trouble with the N64 Expansion Pak. One of the few games that actually had incompatibility issues with it. If your N64 had one, then surely that was the problem.

This exactly. You need the standard jumper pak if you want to avoid the freezing with that game.

This was my favorite when the 64 was current. My friend and I played the co-op to death, and the AI always seemed far more capable in the console version.

Looking back, it's not a terrible port, but it has some problems. The slowdown is excruciating and the controls are imprecise--things I can't overlook now. At the time though, 12-year old me didn't notice or care. It was a blast until I got the PC version a few years later and played online.

My favorite game to play on occasion now is either Road Rash 64 or Super Smash Bros.

I'm a huge Castlevania fan, but I don't understand why everybody shits on that game. The atmosphere is good, the difficulty's not too high or too low, the graphics are correct for the era and they did a good job (imho) transposing the classic Castlevania gameplay into 3D. The only bad thing in that the camera has some problem from time to time. Also no, the controls aren't shit.

I'm also a huge castlevania fan and I like CV64.

It was a good effort and worth playing if you like the series. I agree that it's the CV game that does the best job at translating the feel of classicvania into 3D. In fact, it has a lot of hints to Rondo of Blood, like being able to use both the vampire killer or the magical girl, much like Richter and Maria on Rondo, in fact Carrie's alternate costume is the Maria pink dress.

And of course the amazing intro theme with "divided bloodlines" on violin.

god damn I love that intro.

The game itself is enjoyable, gets some time to get used to the controls, but I agree they're not shit. The fact they added a dodge mechanic makes it a lot more playable. For the longest time I was playing without knowing how to dodge so I was eating bones all the time, but dodging made the game a lot better.
Anyway, the best thing about CV64 is the level design, exploring the villa mansion or the castle entrance was really cool. The more linear/platforming-centred levels are also OK but they can be a bit frustrating sometimes due to the camera. The exploration levels added slight elements of survival horror that I think blended pretty well.

I don't think it's a masterpiece, but it's not a bad game either, I'd give it an 8, it's a good game, and definitely feels like Castlevania in atmosphere and setting.

By the way, the producer of CV64 was Etsunobu Ebisu, the guy from Ganbare Goemon.

I didn't even play Legacy of Darkness, I hear it's even better.
