Dr. Mario will cure your boredom!
Thanks for reading my review of Dr. Mario for Nintendo 64!! --kramer4077
Overall: 9--Oh, Dr. Mario! He has cured my boredom on many rainy or snowy Wisconsin days! I had this game on the original Game Boy. Yes, that's right, I played this before there was color on the Game Boy and that version was very difficult! The Nintendo 64 version is my absolute favorite version, and definitely in my top 5 favorite games of all time! There is something highly addicting about wanting to clear germs off your game screen.
Graphics: 9--The graphics are very nice for a Nintendo 64 game. Everything is very colorful and there are many different backgrounds you can choose to have behind the game during game-play. I prefer the lighter backgrounds to the darker ones, but there's a good assortment to choose from!
Sound: 10--Wow, are the songs totally addicting! They offer the traditional tunes from the original Dr. Mario like "Chill" and there's even some new tunes to try out! It's like I hear the music in my sleep from this game sometimes. My brother and I even made up lyrics to the original songs because the tunes are so catchy!
Addictiveness: 10--Once you start killing those germs you won't want to stop! Just like I hear the music in my sleep sometimes when I close my eyes a game board with colorful germs appears in front of me! This game is definitely addicting!
Story: 8--The other versions of Dr. Mario don't have a story, but this version has a one player mode with a little story to it.
Depth: 8--This version of Dr. Mario does have more to offer than its predecessors since there is a story mode. However, all game modes involve putting colorful pills onto germs and lining up 4 of the same color in a row to eliminate the germs. When all the germs are gone, the level is complete. You will then be advanced to the next level, which will have a few more germs on the screen than the previous level did. Hey, let me tell you about the 4-player mode! This is AWESOME! The most difficult part might be finding 3 friends to play Dr. Mario with you, but it's worth it to play with real people! On your game board when you eliminate 2 or more sets of germs in a single turn, you will "dump" some extra pill pieces onto an opponent. The extra pieces may or may not help them. If the pieces help them, then you are a great friend. If the pieces land on top of different colored pieces, well then your friend just might start cursing at you like a sailor!
Difficulty: 9--Level 1 on low speed is not very difficult. My mother can complete that level. Now level 20 in high speed--good luck with that! The difficulty of the game depends on the level and speed that you choose to play with. The game can be as difficult as you make it. What's nice is that if you have a friend who doesn't play that well, she can go on a lower level while you play against her on a higher level. It can make the match-up more exciting than just playing on the same level all the time.
