    Wave Race® 64 (Nintendo® 64, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): Take to the waves on your own personal watercraft and experience some of the best water effects in video game history. Choose one of four characters, each with his/her own unique abilities and style, and master the game's excellent controls. Make your way through nine courses, each with its own challenges. If the ramps, mines and hairpin turns aren't enough, you'll also have to deal with varying weather conditions that can make the water choppy or cover the course with fog. And if you ever feel like taking a break from racing, then try out Stunt Mode to polish your skills by pulling off handstands, rolls and more. Get good enough and you might even be able to ride a dolphin-just don't get seasick.

    ADVENTURES OF LOLO™ (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): This was the first game in the Eggerland puzzle series to be released in North America. After the love of his life, Lala, is kidnapped by the Great Devil and taken to a haunted castle, our hero Lolo sets out to rescue her. The journey is perilous because the Great Devil's fortress is guarded by a massive army. But Lolo has a few tricks up his sleeve, including a Magic Shot that turns enemies into eggs and an Emerald Framer that shields him from attacks. Combining clever environmental puzzles with tricky enemies and an engaging style, ADVENTURES OF LOLO is a true classic.

    GALAGA™ '90 (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): This is an updated version of the classic arcade shooter Galaga. Set in the vast reaches of space, you will fight your way through all 29 rounds to reach the enemies' stronghold on Planet Galaga. Game levels consist of a few rounds with changing enemies and backgrounds. To top it off, the nostalgic "Galactic Dancing" lives on to mark the end of each level. With the new addition of dimensions, you can choose your attack route. Collect capsules and open dimension warps at branch sections to take on even tougher enemies. GALAGA '90's inclusion of the triple fighter, scrolling backgrounds, boss Galaga and even new system effects make it nothing less than a masterpiece.

    Yes, according to an IGN review. The same review also gave it a 9.7.

    I don't understand that. The 64 had four player abilities!

    Same with Quake 64 (which wasn't that good), that was only 2 player multiplayer.

    Wa..Wa...WAVE RACE!?!?!?!?!?!?!? YESSS!!!!!!

    Finally a good release, I remember playing Wave Race on my N64 (before losing the cart), man this brings back childhood memories, can't wait to get it

    One problem though (and I blame Nintendo for this), I don't have enough Wii Points and I have ran out on internal memory, so unless I go out and get an SD card to save my less played games on, I am unable to play it, and I need to invest in more Wii Points

    wave race is a good example of a game i reaaly wish i could try before buying. It was really fun back when it came out, but has it held up. Ten dollars for a game which might no have held up is steep. Free trial would completely solve that problem

    Wave Race 64 is a lot of fun. If you liked Mario Kart, you'll probably like Wave Race. It's one of the best N64 games you can get. Good week.

    i thought it always had 4 player strange

    all 3 good games. I think if i get more points i'm going to hafta pass on Wave Race for now as i still play Blue Storm now ,and then.

    Lolo though makes me remember late nights as a kid

    looking at this version of galaga makes me wonder if they'll ever do a 3D shooter remake in vein of Galaga kind of like Star Fox meets Metroid type story line.

    I wouldnt be surprised with all the classic franchise reboots lately.
