While many games couldn't quite handle the conversion from 2-D to 3-D, the Super Mario franchise handled it very well. Once again, you play the world's favorite plumber in an attempt to rescue Princess Toadstool. Mario is armed with several new skills this time around, including the ability to punch, kick, do backflips, and jump off the walls. The game functions nothing at all like its 2-D predecessors. There will be plenty of times when you will become enraged with the annoying camera angles and your inability to walk in a straight line, but overall, the game is solid and enjoyable. Run about in the royal castle, swim into the depths of the pirate lagoon, climb to the top of frozen mountains, avoid the terrible quicksand traps of the desert, and finally face off with Bowser to save Peach.

Koji Kondo does it again! From the festive snow music to the spooky haunted house theme, from the serene water music to the lively remixed Mario theme, the soundtrack to Super Mario 64 is fantastic. Although most stages share music, there are still plenty of songs to keep everything interesting. Plus, the songs change dynamically as you enter different parts of the levels. This soundtrack is definitely a must have.

(Info)


Ripping Nintendo 64 music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.

The tempo of Metallic Mario and Koopa's Road are slightly off. When the rip is fixed, the recorded music will also be fixed.

The track titles come from the original sound track.
