What Made Wave Race 64 So Darn Special?

Few N64 games are as beautiful as Wave Race 64. We thought we’d get our cameras out and take a closer look at the impressive amount of detail on show in this exceptional watercraft racer. (Nintendo 64, Retro, Wave Race 64 VC)

"Don't miss anymore". We all know you did, admit it
(The Gamecube code for the condescending narrator was certainly one of the more quirky secrets)

My cousin only owned two games for his N64, Wave Race and Shadows of the Empire

Still play it every now and then today. Would love to see a new one for the Wii U.

Simple Control Gameplay and one thing that many games are missing... FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN...

IF a game is not FUN is is an automatic fail... the whole point to gaming is fun and many publishers developers and sometimes gamers so miss this point..

Because back when that title was released we weren't used to playing any race games on water with waves effecting the handling of your wave runner. It's was new to everyone plus the graphics were awsome back in the day.

* The Water physics were amazing for it's time and still hold up pretty good actually.

* The soundtrack was awesome too. Really nice relaxing drum & bass mixed with semi-jazzy chill tunes.

* Tracks were designed good, and there was variation.

* Being able to just free ride anywhere you want and doing tricks.

They HAVE to make Wave Race U.

Yeah, this game had something really strange about it, I loved it so much.
And riding the dolphin was icing on the cake.
