Balls. Deekay is right. When the controls in a Mario game (especially M64) are sub par, it may as well be Blinx (or any other awful platformer).
If it wasn't for the minigames, it wouldn't be worth a penny.
If only Mass Effect, Bioshock and GTA4 where being released this year. Still, Lost Planet is fun and Viva Pinata looks lovely. Apart from that it's mostly shooty, shooty stuff and the same old franchise sequels.
