Waverace 64
reviewed by Donald Melanson

Recently, Nintendo decided to re-release some of the earlier games for the Nintendo 64 at a lower price; most likely to compete with the significantly cheaper games available for the Sony Playstation. Much to my delight, one of the games re-released as a "Player's Choice" title is Waverace 64. Which is, in my opinion, one of the greatest racing games of all time.

Waverace 64Now almost two years old, Waverace is barely showing it's age, with graphics that still smoke much of the competition, and, more importantly, game control that's still the best around (although the recently released 1080 Snowboarding uses the same game engine). Waverace also offers considerable replay value, with four racers to choose from, nine courses, a tournament, time trial and stunt mode, and of course a two-player vs. mode.

To sum it up briefly, Waverace is a great game that is finally at a great price, which is more than I can say for most of the N64's game library. Another notable game in the Player's Choice series is Turok, although a lack of multi-player mode hampers the game a bit.
