NINTENDO 64 - STARCRAFT 64 RARE VIDEO GAME FOR SALE.
| ||StarCraft 64
"A classic strategy game moves to a port in a galaxy near you."
StarCraft has been hailed as one of the best (if not THE best) strategy games ever made. And now, it's on your TV.
Sure, there's some slowdown, and of course an analog stick can't move like a mouse, but these can be overcome.
LOVE the story of the mission mode. I find it interesting to see things
from all different perspectives, especially what happens to Kerrigan as
the game progresses. Oops...don't want to spoil...
Needless to say, the 3 races each have their own agendas and are willing to kill to achieve their goals.

The multiplayer on
N64 is NOTHING compared to the PC multiplayer. Also, the missions are
fun, but nothing you want to sit through over and over, some of them

version is better if you like multiplayer options. An engrossing
storyline with memorable characters, on top of great sounds and
graphics. A few flaws, but they can be overlooked.
