Oh dear, Nintendo. What have you done? Mario 64 was one of the best games ever created. Better in many ways than Mario Sunshine, even. But this DS port is awful – ruined almost entirely by the dreadful controls. The digital pad is no good for the tight turns and run-speed control required, and the touch screen isn’t responsive enough and awkward to use.

Played it for a good two hours today, and it hasn’t “clicked” yet. I have 8 stars so far, but have run round much of the castle and open levels. I just can’t get into it.

On the plus side, the mini-games are good fun, but ultimately shallow and not worth buying the game for. Oh well.
