So I have my Wii, I'm online, and I want to buy a game on the Virtual Console. I was pretty much all set to buy Super Mario 64 until I started searching what was available. I had forgotten about Star Fox 64. There's no easy way for me to pick one over the other. I didn't have a Nintendo 64, so I never owned either game, but I did play both quite a bit with friends. And each game has their own strong points. Super Mario 64 -revolutionized platform gaming -best(?) Mario game ever -120 Stars = lots of mileage for my $10 Star Fox 64 -fast-paced shooting action -multiple paths, medals, expert mode, multiplayer = more replay value -DO A BARREL ROLL! IGN's reviews gave no indication of anything wrong with the games (like Mario Kart 64's loose steering), except that Star Fox has no rumble (not a deal breaker for me). The only reason I can think of to not buy Mario 64 is that I'm still hoping to get Mario Galaxy and getting both games might feel repetitive (not a guarantee). The only downside to Star Fox 64 is that I've seen/played it beginning to end a few times, but that never stopped me from enjoying it. And please don't say "get both". While I have the money, I'd rather save some for actual Wii games (which I'm still not sure if I'm getting from relatives), 25th GI Joes, or Transformers. Or even save it for supplies and food when I go back to school (what a concept!).
