Mace: The Dark Age
Reviewed by KI Man
All right wutz up guy's? this is my review for Mace: The Dark Age. I had
been a huge fan of the arcade game for months and had beaten it several
times and learned a lot about the game. I also had the first *real* web
page up for the game =-). Anyway I rented the game of course and I
enjoyed it quite a bit! This is still a great game on the N64 and its
worth buying. There are a few things wrong with it. For one, the
graphics are not nearly as good as the arcade. I was a bit disappointed
in this. I know N64 can handle better graphics than that. The arcade's
animation was much smoother and everything looked clean and crisp. Also
the sound on the Nintendo 64 version was a bit garbled. It still sounded
decent but the sound quality was much lower, and once again the arcade
was a bit more clear and crisp in this element. The gameplay was very
good but a bit different than the arcade because the control was not
quite as good and there was so skipping and slowdown in the game.
Overall Mace for N64 is definitely a great game worth buying. Its very
original and fun to play because of the moves and combos in the game.
And the last boss is just incredible... the best I've ever seen before
in a fighter. I think everyone should give it a try.
