Bomberman Hero

 

By the mid-‘90s, every video game icon from Mario to Mega Man had its own 3D adventure game, so it was only natural for Bomberman to get the same treatment. Bomberman Hero was not the first game in the series to be released on the Nintendo 64, but it was the one that perhaps made the shakiest transition to the 3D realm.

Bio F.R.E.A.K.S

 

It’s frustrating when a game promises so much in concept only to fall short in the execution. Bio F.R.E.A.K.S. certainly has all the makings of a great 3D fighter, with interactive arenas, robust move sets, and free range of movement. All characters are equipped with a jetpack that enables them to fly around the arenas, and they’ve even got the ability to land a fight-ending fatality at any point in the match.

Blast Corps

 

Video games let you act out a lot of different fantasies. Some will have you speeding down racetracks, and others will put you in the cockpit of a starfighter. The possibilities go on and on, so it’s astounding that so few developers have tapped into what is surely a common fantasy for a lot of people: demolition.

Banjo-Kazooie

 

Banjo-Kazooie was dubbed Rare’s “Mario killer” for the fact that it proposed to do everything Super Mario 64 could do, but better. In many ways, Banjo-Kazooie does just that: the worlds are larger and more involved, the textures more detailed, and the gameplay has just as much depth. There’s no doubting that Banjo-Kazooie is a jewel of the Nintendo 64, and it’s about as good as 3D platformers come.
