Quest 64 is the first and only real RPG for the Nintendo 64. Now
I know a lot of people cut this game down a lot but it's not that
bad of a game actually. It's just who ever debugged and tested
the game should have been dragged out in the street and shot.
Graphics 10 out of 10
The graphics in quest is pure eye candy. In fact quest and by
opinion has better graphics then Zelda 64. Let me explain Zelda
64 where to good for its own good and it was hard to get into
the fantasy part quest 64 cartoony graphics help you get into
the fantasy part. So Zelda 64 should have borrowed a little bit
on quest 64 graphics.
Music and Sound 9 out of 10
All the music and the sounds to fit the scenes well they repeat
to much for you to get in. The sound you can hear the foot steps
and even your staff hit enemies.
Game Challenge 7 out of 10
The game is pretty easy for an RPG there's no money and people give
the stuff you need like bread and other stuff but seeing how they
will only give you one of each item it is important that you conserve
your items for bosses and to make it even easier you get one magic
point for hitting an enemy with a staff and you can get extra magic
just by walking around. So once you get healing your character can
virtually stay at full health through out the game, example, get in fight,
get beat with inch of life, kill monster to end fight, then just stand
there doing the heal spell till your full magic almost wiping out your
magic points, walk around till you are full magic.
Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10
It's the simplicity that made the game to be I didn't have to worry about
getting more money so i can buy something I needed or to stay at the
inn I could just concentrate on my quest. it also a unique level up
system instead of getting enough exp points and then each of your
stats going up a little bit it is what you use to attack the enemy for
and example if you use your staff to attack and enemy your attack
rises if you get hit your defense raises a little bit and if you dodge
an attack the your evade rises.
Now here is where many people will gripe now the game is easy but
there just to many bugs. most of them have to with the camera
angle. the camera angle changes when ever you get in a fight and
you actually move in the field when you fight. Now so they don't
totally leave you in the dark brain will turn around when he wins a
fight to the direction he was facing before the fight but what
happens when you use an escape spell or run from battle then
you can get lost because the camera angle doesn't change back.
Now this no big deal in the outer world seeing how if you take a good
look around you and at your map you will find which way to go. But
in narrow caves you can go the wrong way and find your way back
to the cave entrance and wind up doing the cave all over.
Replayability 5 out of 10
Unlike Zelda where you have secret dungeons and different levels
quest only has one path to follow basically and you will only go off
it to enter a town or to get a spirit. This kills the replay ability by
a great amount so once you beat you only get to it all over again.
Game Value 10 out of 10
When I bought quest it was on the liquidation rack so I got it for $20
and it was well worth that. Now it's original price was $65 and I would
have not bought it at that price.
Overall 8 out of 10
In the end I think they should have work more on the camera angle
and added a little more to the game. It would have been a better game.
This game is way to short, I beat it in 12 hours and 13 minutes.
